About This Quiz

Dogs are so much more than our best friends! They keep our feet warm, look out for our homes, and they entertain us for hours on end. We have such intimate relationships with our canine pals that it only stands to reason that we have one guarding our hearts. 

As we fetch for answers during this quiz, we are going to try to get to know you as well as your furry family member. We'll take a look at the way you use your heart, the way you think about dogs, and your individual style, we'll match you up with the dog breed we think guards your heart. Will it be something small like a Jack Russell, or is your heart so large it needs something like a Great Dane? 

Not every breed is geared for the same kind of heart, so it's important that you answer our questions with the same honesty a dog has when it knows it has done something wrong. There are no right or wrong answers. There are only the answers your heart tells you to give us. Once we get a good feel for the pooch that guards your heart, we'll let you know which one has the job. Are you ready to find out?
