If you don't know dogs very well, you may be under the mistaken impression that they're all mostly the same animal.

They have a wide variety of abilities and personalities, and they're just as diverse as the people who own them. That's why some dogs are just better suited for certain people than others. That's also how we can tell which breed of dog lives in your heart.

Maybe it's because dogs have been companions with people for so many thousands of years that they've become so diverse and interesting. So able to reflect all of our best inner qualities and maybe even sometimes some of the worse ones.
