There are two types of people when it comes to choosing a dog:
1. Those that always had a strong desire to own on particular breed
2. Those that go to an animal shelter and choose the one that steals their heart
Which type are you?
As a child I was once attacked by a large dog which resulted in many years of fear for dogs, large or small.
I’m not sure when this changed, but nowadays I wish my job was watching dogs.
That’s why I love going to the beach outside the summer season.
Watching doggies playing and running around gives an incredible amount of joy.
And I am always looking for one particular rare breed: mr. Puggy.
He always seems to be hiding behind flowers or so 😉
Everything about this dog makes my heart melt.
You wouldn’t be surprised, I am type of person, number 1 😉
I started wondering if their is a relation between a person’s personality and the type of dog they choose.
Petplace.com defines a number of dogs breeds fitting to either a Personality type A or B:
It also describes the Type A & B personalities:
The Type A Person:
You have the drive to compete and win. Getting irritated or angry easily is part of your nature. And waiting for your dog to respond can irk you. You embody the saying “It’s a dog-eat-dog world” and being Top Dog (whether it be at work or while working with your dog in the show ring) is important to you.
The Type B Person:
You’re more laid-back, less hurried than Type A’s. It’s hard for you to get super motivated to go do it, whatever “it” may be. Warm and friendly, you enjoy people and the good life – but you’re not willing to work too hard for it. After all, frolicking in the sun or plopping on the couch, with a dog or two, is much more inviting.
My beloved pug belongs to the Type B people.
I wouldn’t say I am full type A personality, but I definitely don’t have a “wait until something magically happens” attitude.
I’m a bit more towards the impatient side.
I rather fix something myself than wait for someone do help me out.
Nevertheless, Puggy and I will have to figure it out 😉
What type of Person are you? A or B?
What’s your favorite breed of dog or do you rather go to a dog shelter and let the dog pick you?
