About This Quiz

Soulmates aren't always romantic. In fact, our pets may very well be the companions that our soul has truly been looking for. If you've ever developed a deep love for a pet before, you know that there is something special about the bond that forms between the two of you. You start to look like each other, you pick up each other's mannerisms and, just like an old couple, you can anticipate each other's needs and thoughts.

Are you the kind of person who spends hours in front of the mirror each morning, getting every detail of your look just right before you walk out the door? If so, there's a high-maintenance breed that might be the perfect match for you. We'll give you a hint; it rhymes with doodle.

On the other hand, maybe you're more laid-back and easy-going than that. If you are the kind of person who always greets people with kindness and warmth, the Golden Retriever might be the one that you've been seeking. With this breed, you can expect a gentle, sweet kind of love that is reliably there for you.

Perhaps you don't identify with either of those options. Not to worry, there's plenty of other breed choices out there. All we need to do is to figure out what makes you tick. Are you ready? Go get it.
