The study of 1,000 pet owners and non-owners also revealed that although some pooches might attract singles looking for relationships, some breeds tend to attract individuals just looking for some action.
Men noted that they judged women with chihuahuas as dumb, hot and easy; while women said they viewed men with bulldogs as one-night-stands, according to the report.
Regardless of the breed, at least one woman said there's just something about men who own dogs.
“Dogs say something about you -- that you are charitable, that you are responsible. Guys like that are nice to be around,” Katie Wyatt, 22, told the Akron Beacon Journal.
But knowing which dog breeds are most attractive is only part of the process. So for those looking to maximize the appeal not only of their pet, but of themselves, one dating site provides users with the chance to gauge how similar they are to their pups.
OkCupid features a personality quiz that tells registered users which dog breed they're most like. "It isn't complicated and it isn't terribly scientific, but it is manic fun," the site states.
