About This Quiz

Dogs are emotionally complex. If you know a lot about dog breeds, you know a couple of things for sure. You know that dogs are ridiculously awesome no matter what breed they are, and you also know that each dog breed has a totally different vibe. This is especially true when it comes to emotional situations. Some breeds are workers. They don't dwell in emotions; they just like to keep themselves busy and get things done. Other dogs are all about being friendly. No matter what emotional situation they might find themselves in, all they want to do is make you happy. Other dogs are super chill and are almost too lazy to deal with any emotional situations in the first place, and on the other end of the spectrum, others might get just a little aggro if you push their emotional buttons.

We all know that life isn't just about laying in the sun, getting belly scratches and chasing balls around. Sometimes there are emotional things that come up for all of us and we have to deal with them. What dog breed would you be, based on how you react emotionally to certain situations? Would it be a Golden Retriever, Rhodesian Ridgeback, Bull Mastiff or a Pug? Take this quiz to find out. Good boy.
