"Pets are great for lots of different things; for companionship, for fun romps at the park, and even for getting a date,” said Alejandro Russo, co-founder of Klooff, a mobile app that allows users to create profiles for their pets.


According to the survey, the leading dog breeds that make women more attractive to men are:


1. Golden Retriever
2. Labrador Retriever
3. Chihuahua
4. Poodle
5. Beagle


The survey found the leading dog breeds that make men more attractive to women are:


1. German Shepherd
2. Golden Retriever
3. Labrador Retriever
4. Siberian Husky
5. French Bulldog


Some of the survey's findings about women and their dogs are:
  • A woman who owns a Chihuahua is viewed as dumber than a woman who has any other breed. 
  • A woman who owns a Golden Retriever is believed to be better girlfriend material than a woman who has a Chihuahua. 
  • A woman who owns a Chihuahua is considered to be five times more likely to be better material for a "one-night stand" than a woman who has a Golden Retriever. 
  • A woman who owns a Poodle also is viewed as more likely to be just a "one-night stand" than a woman who has any other breed. 
  • A woman who owns a Poodle or Chihuahua is considered twice as likely to be "high maintenance" compared to a woman who has a Siberian Husky. 
  • A woman who owns a Chihuahuas is viewed as "probably hot" more so than a woman who has any other breed.


Some of the survey's findings about men and their dogs are:
  • A man who owns a Boxer, a Bulldog or Rottweiler is more likely to be viewed as as just a “hook up” than a man who has a Labrador Retriever. 
  • A man who owns a Golden Retriever is 10 times more likely to be considered "marriage material" or "boyfriend material” than a man who has a Pit Bull. 
  • A man who owns a German Shepherd is three times more likely to be considered "marriage material" or "boyfriend material” than a man who has a Pit Bull. 
  • A man who owns a Pit Bull or a Rottweiler is 10 times more likely to be viewed as “slimy” or “sketchy” than a man who has a Siberian Husky. 
  • A man who owns a Labrador Retriever is more likely to be considered as a potential "great dad." 
  • A man who owns a Siberian Husky is more likely to be viewed as "more manly" than a man who has a Bulldog.
