Default For those wondering what breed is right for them

I noticed a few threads had the topic of what dog would be good for their situation. Well I found a website that would help with the decision making process. On the site all you have to do is answer the questions they ask and submit them, then you will get a list of possible dogs that would fit the criteria you put in. From there all you have to do is research on that type of breed to find out if it is right for you. I thought this may help some in making a good decision.

Nice of you to post that Portri. That is a good starting point for someone who want to narrow down the possibilities!

I've used that quiz quite a few times and I think it works pretty well. The only problem with it is for the question "Are you looking for a purebred or a hybrid?", Designer breeds come up as purebreds.

Were most of them designer breeds? That's pretty much all that came up on my search.
