Dogs

Match Maker

Just complete a short profile to learn which dogs will transition easily and best fit your unique lifestyle.

Lifestyle types are divided into three simple categories and each is assigned a color.  Dogs are also assigned a color, based upon their personalities.

That’s how we match you to the right canine companion.

PURPLE PEOPLE
Purple people often want a low-maintenance relationship. They have lots of love to give, but have limited time or ability to exercise and train their new family member. They may be first-time guardians and/or have young children.

PURPLE DOGS
Couch Potato: Like the easy life? Then I’m the perfect match for you. I’m a relaxed, laid back kind of dog who enjoys long naps, watching movies, curling up on laps and walking short distances from the couch to the food bowl and back.

Constant Companion: Looking for an emotionally secure, mutually satisfying, low maintenance relationship? I am all you need. Let me sit at your feet, walk by your side and I’ll be your devoted companion forever.

Teacher’s Pet: I’ve got it all — smart, fuzzy, four legs, love to learn and live to please. Go ahead, teach me anything. Sit, stay, balance your checkbook, I can do it all. Keep me entertained and I’ll be yours forever.

ORANGE PEOPLE
Orange people are open to dogs that like lots of action, but also want to relax and take it easy with their dog. They are happy to make the commitment for training, exercise and an extra snuggle or two. 

ORANGE DOGS
Wallflower: Shy, charming canine searching for patient guardian with relaxed lifestyle; looking for gentle guidance to help me come out of my shell. Treat me sweet and kind and I'll blossom. 

Goofball: I'm a fun loving, happy all the time, glass is half full kind of dog looking for someone who loves to laugh and play. You must have a great sense of humor and a bunch of tennis balls.

Busy Bee: I’m a naturally playful, curious and trusting canine. Take me for a big walk every day and give me something to do. After my job’s done, I’ll curl up in front of the fire with you in the evenings. I’m a dog on a mission to please you and myself.

GREEN PEOPLE
Green people could be dog training pros or are ready to make the commitment to become a pro! They have enough time to enjoy constant daily training, exercise and mental stimulation and prefer a very spirited, vivacious dog who is outgoing and active.

GREEN DOGS
Free Spirit
: Intelligent, independent, confident and clever, I prefer making my own decisions, but will listen if you make a good case. We’re partners in this adventure — treat me as one and we’ll both live happily ever after.

Life of the Party: I think everything is fun, interesting and needs to be played with, especially you! Anything you do, I’ll want to do it, too. With my own brand of surprises, life with me will keep you constantly on your toes and the fun is guaranteed.

Go Getter: Want to get more exercise? Action is my middle name. My go-getter personality will keep you motivated to get outside and move. I’ve got tons of energy and I love to work every minute of the day. I’ll run for miles, chase balls for hours and will still want to play around at the end of the night.
