Which Dog Breed Should I Get Quiz

The question “What dog breed should I get?” reminds me of a situation with a family in our neighbourhood some time ago. I wish they could have taken a dog breed quiz, such as the one below, before adopting their new puppy. Why?

Well, their personality, their living arrangements, their kids, their understanding of dog parenting were all at odds with the type of dog they chose. Mind you the dog was gorgeous. It was a mix, but it was one of the most beautiful puppies you could imagine and oh so playful.

The excitement that a cute little puppy brings was certainly there at the beginning. But it lasted less than a month. It wasn’t long before the puppy was left outside, all alone, for long hours at a time.

Check Which Dog Breed Is Best for You

If you are planning to adopt a new little puppy, you might already know the breed you want. I have friends who have just brought home their 4th Cocker Spaniel. They know the breed inside and out. They know what to expect, they know that, for them, it will be love at first sight.

However, if you are new to dog parenting, it can be tricky to choose a breed that suits you as well as your environment.

So let’s see which dog breed would suit you best, via this dog breed quiz:
