About This Quiz

If you are fortunate enough to have a dog in your life, it's statistically the most likely, if you are an American, that your dog is a Labrador. This intelligent, loyal, handsome breed is the most popular dog in America, and deservedly so, as it is a good balance of traits. This also means that this is the breed of dog that the highest number of people would like to have as a guardian angel, a role that it would, no doubt, be absolutely delighted to fulfill.

However, not everyone is a Labrador person, and even those who have one in real life might prefer a different sort of spirit dog, as it were. There are so many breeds out there, after all, and they all have very different things to offer! It's wise to consider other options than simply the usual suspects, as you might find one that is the perfect fit for you.

This quiz will help you figure out which of four unusual breeds might make the perfect guardian for you - and perhaps if you like the look of them, you'll find a physical version to join you in the real world. It's time to get started!
