Looking for your best friend?

Many folks nowadays are taking advantage of Internet dating, looking for love from the comfort and safety of their laptops. You’ve heard of FarmersOnly.com?

We put a lot of effort into finding our soulmates. But what if we took that much time to find our “soulpups”?

After all, dogs are traditionally known as our best friends. Our old-man golden-retriever, Walker, is most certainly a best friend and family member.

So why not spin the Internet dating craze to include our four-legged companions? PawsLikeMe.com contends that they’ve created an intelligent algorithm to perfectly match you with the dog of your dreams, and boasts that the matches are accurate an astonishing 90% of the time.

This matching system takes into account personality, lifestyle, and environmental factors when generating a score. The personality assessment is based on personality traits that influence the human-canine bond: energy, focus, confidence, and independence. In other words, if you don’t like a lot of activity, you probably shouldn’t choose a breed that requires a lot of exercise.

The team founded the company in response to the rising rate of unwanted pets in shelters nationwide that have to be euthanized. If people and pets were perfectly matched and happy together from the beginning, PawsLikeMe believes the incidence of shelter abandonment would drop significantly. So if you’ve been daydreaming about your dream pup, check out PawsLikeMe.

Next, they need a farm animal section. I’m pretty sure I’d match up with a Jersey!

    I agree with the cute photo of you and “baby cow”! I think this service is a great idea. The thing for me is that I do my best “picking” when I can actually see, hold, and talk to a potential pet. So far, in all my years of selecting a pet (almost all have come from the shelter) I’ve never been wrong! But I know that not everyone is able to, or wants to do it that way!

    I really like this idea! I feel strongly about eliminating as many pets as possible from shelters. This could be a good way to encourage people to find a pet that works best for them. It makes me laugh thinking about this as an online dating service for pets! Super cute pictures, Megan. Your four-legged friends are adorable!
