A survey carried out by Match.com has revealed that we put a lot of faith in our dogs, when it comes to judging our potential partners.
According to the results, 25% of women have been more attracted to someone because of their pet, and almost half like to see if their dog reacts well to their date.
They also found that 59% of respondents would perceive their date as more attractive, if they found out he or she had adopted their pet rather than buying from a breeder.
Things get a little awkward when it comes to mixing cat people with dog people though. The survey revealed that 97% of cat owners would have a relationship with a ‘dog person’, but only 66% of dog owners would be open to dating a cat person.
How much faith have you got in your dog’s match making abilities?!
