What does the breed of your dog say about the kind of person you are?

What does the breed of your dog say about the kind of person you are?

Why do you own the dog that you own?

Dogs are the best (no offense meant to cats) and every dog lover would attest to the fact that they are the greatest companions one could have. Their loyalty, courage, and friendliness make them irresistible and one can't help but hug these little angels. Dogs, as people, do have their own personalities and a dog owner is inherently attracted towards a dog, to keep as a pet, which matches their own personalities. A good dog-master match is necessary for a comfortable relationship and the fact is that the dog you keep does say a lot about who you are as a person.

(PS: It obviously does not apply to those who have more than one kind of dog.)
