Think you’ve found your ultimate canine match? Maybe so, or perhaps you’re still searching. Narrowing down the perfect furry co-pilot for your lifestyle takes time. But if you’re willing to do the research, you’ll end up with the dog that’s right for you.
Luckily, there’s a wide variety of breeds that make stellar companions for lots of types of folks. For instance, most of us know that golden retrievers will get along with just about anyone, and that labs are perfect for those who like to stay active while still having a loving companion by their side. So, we wanted to cover some breeds you may not have expected to match certain personality types. Who knows, you just may be inspired to get one of your own.
1. For the eccentric: Afghan hound
An eccentric person is a little unconventional and sometimes misunderstood by others. While some may view them as a bit odd, they know who they are, and they go with it. Perhaps their appearance goes against societal norms or their personality isn’t what one would expect. If this sound like you, then the Afghan hound may be your next best partner in crime.
The AKC describes the breed as one of charming contradictions. “Beneath the glamorous exterior is a powerful, agile hound — standing as high as 27 inches at the shoulder — built for a long day’s hunt,” the AKC writes. If you’re often misunderstood, an Afghan hound will be able to relate.
