What happens when Man Meets Mutt: Pooches and Personalities

Owning a dog is a very rewarding experience. Owners do not own a pet. Instead, they consider dogs as a new addition to the family. Dogs are great companions to be with because they can provide as much care and attention a person can give.

Dogs are even a great help to people with disabilities because some of these pooches are intelligent enough to give assistance to them. However, owning a dog has something more to do with a lot more. Did you know that the breed of your new best friend can "actually" reflect your personality? Here are some of those lines commonly associated with an individual’s personality. 


Beagles are loyal and very curious when it comes to the things around them. The same goes for owners of the breed, as they are more open to trying out a lot of new things. Beagles are also known to be quite mischievous.

German Shepherds

Dogs of this breed are known for their vigorous and capable appearance. Due to this, German Shepherds are ideal as guard dogs. Owners of this line are also known to help out friends in need. They are also loyal and protective of the ones they consider family.


These cute and small dogs are often stubborn and mischievous. Dachshunds are also known to be brave. These dogs ignore their small size and often stand up to much larger dogs. Even with their bravado and rogue behaviour, Dachshunds are very friendly and affectionate.

Siberian Huskies

Huskies are very active and like to go out often. Due to this, a lot of owners who also have active lifestyles like to pair up with them. Huskies are up for rigorous activities, and their behaviour suggests just that. These dogs are open and warm towards strangers and are very strong willed.


Often the most misunderstood breed, Pitbulls, in reality, are very caring and loving additions to a family. Pit bull owners are also courageous and protective of the ones that they love. Contrary to belief, Pitbull like to be around children.

Mutts or Mixed Breeds are fun and carefree. They enjoy “going with the flow” with whoever they like. Owners of this breed don’t stick with a plan and enjoy taking life as it comes. These dogs are also very likable as some of these dogs can be very cute and energetic. Owners of these dogs are most likely fond of picking out furniture from furniture stores because they are used to changes a lot more.


Although their appearance is flat and somewhat lazy, Bulldogs are known to be quite persistent. These dogs don’t give up easily if they don’t get what they want. People who own bulldogs are silly and often make a lot of individuals laugh because of their wits and humour.


These dogs are fun and friendly, making them the perfect family dog for most. Labs are also known for their active lifestyle. Those who own this breed are often the life of the party and are known to socialise extremely well. They are also lovable and value integrity.


Dogs make excellent companions for people. Often, people unknowingly match up their personalities to their furry friends. For example, active owners who do extreme sports like skateboarding and biking are more likely to own a Siberian Husky. Those who like quiet and calm surroundings prefer to own Bulldogs.

Regardless of the breed, people should take good care of their companions as they are more like friends, rather than pets.
