GREENVILLE, South Carolina — It’s said that people start to look like their pets after a while, but now a pet lovers website and smart phone app says what kind of dog you have may or may not attract the opposite sex.

Klooff.com surveyed 1,000 pet-lovers with its smart-phone app and found that many dog breed characteristics leave men and women with particular perceptions about its owner.

The survey found that people really do have strong feelings about what kind of dog someone else has, because the dogs can tell a lot about its owner.

Klooff found that men are overwhelmingly more likely to see a woman with a Golden retriever as “girlfriend material.” Others on the top five list for the most attractive dogs for a woman: Labrador retrievers, beagles, poodles and Chihuahuas.

The survey said guys who own a Siberian husky are considered “manly,” and a Golden or Labrador retriever implies its owner is, “a great dad.” Both of those breeds made the top five list for men to attract women, along with French bulldogs and German Shepherds.
