You’ve decided it’s time to adopt your new best buddy to-be. Fur-tastic!
Shelters and breed rescues are full of delightful dogs waiting for their heroes to come along, and there’s no greater joy in the pet world than knowing that you saved a life.
Once you’ve made that decision, though, finding the right dog is so important!
Sadly, many pets are returned to shelters because their personalities and needs were a mismatch for the people who adopted them. We’re sure you would never let that happen when you adopt, so that’s why you’re doing your research now.
When it comes to adopting a new pet, think about your life, your routines, what you like to do, your energy levels, and what time you can devote to your new fur baby.
You’ll have a match made in heaven if you get it right!
So, what kind of dog breeds are a match for YOU? Let’s look at five personality types and dogs that fit them to give you a helping hand…
1. Relaxed: The Laid-Back Life
Let’s say you’re a homebody that loves a quiet life of Netflix binging with family, friends, or loved ones. You wouldn’t mind taking your pup out on a walk, but you’d probably pass on a hiking or jogging adventure.
If this sounds like you, perhaps a French Bulldog could be your perfect match!
Playful, smart, affectionate, and easy-going, these adaptable cuties were bred to be companion dogs, and that’s what they do best.
Frenchies, as they are affectionately known, are one of the most popular small dogs in the world. Some have even become film and TV stars. But the majority prefer the quiet life, lounging around their paw-rent’s home or snoring on their bed. Oh yes, that snore is quite famous – and lovable.
These chilled-out canines do well in any environment. City dwellers love them as they don’t need much room, don’t bark a lot, and don’t require much exercise. As long as they don’t spend too much time in the heat, they’re good to go.
They also do well with kids and other dogs if they’re a part of your pack.
So, what do you think? Is your next furry friend a Frenchie?
