About This Quiz

Your dog is your best friend. It's the only friend you have who has never lost patience with you. It has never told you that you don't look good in an outfit, that your five-hours-later comeback tweet wasn't the most brilliant and scintillating thing anyone's ever said in the digital sphere, or that your essay was, in fact, a poorly thought-out mess and you barely deserved the C you got for it. Nope, to your dog, you're a hero. You're an angel. You are the very walking essence of all things cuddly and good and delightful.

Of course, just because you can predict that your dog will absolutely adore you doesn't mean you know much else about how they're going to turn out. You can choose by breed, but that's mostly a matter of guidelines. How you treat your dog, and your dog's personality, are the biggest factors by far. That means that your dog's behavior, attitudes, and preferences reflect on the way you raised it - and that means we can deduce a lot about you by asking about your dog. Prepare to tell us about your furry friend, and we'll tell you what line of work you're in!
