Top 5 Dog Breeds to Fetch a Date

By: Jase Peeples

It doesn’t take a genius to realize the potential joy that can be yours from having a furry four-legged friend in your life.

Dogs are a source of unconditional love – even when we’re in a totally bitchy mood.

They shower us with affection each time we return home, love to cuddle, and never judge us for bingeing on Ben & Jerry’s while streaming a Julia Roberts marathon on Netflix.

But as every gay man knows, dogs can also provide the perfect excuse for that hot guy to chat you up while you’re on a walk with your pup in the park.

However, contrary to popular belief, not all dogs have the power to turn you into a dude magnet. In fact, some breeds of man’s best friend can actually hurt your chances for scoring a potential date.

Thankfully, Klooff – the premier app for pet lovers – has conducted an international study to illuminate the types of dogs that make guys irresistible and which breeds to avoid. The top five breeds that made men more attractive were:

5. French Bulldogs

4. Siberian Huskies

3. Labrador Retrievers

2. Golden Retrievers

1. German Shepherds

Other interesting tidbits the study uncovered were:

- People were twice as likely to see a man who owns a Boxer, a Bulldog or Rottweiler as just a “hook up” than a man who owns a Pit Bull or Labrador Retriever.

- People are over 10 times more likely to see a man who owns a Golden Retriever and 3 times more likely to see a man who owns a German Shepherd as "marriage material" or "boyfriend material,” than a man who owns a Pit Bull.

- People are 10 times more likely to see a man who owns a Pit Bull or a Rottweiler as “slimy” or “sketchy” than a man who owns a Siberian Husky.

- People are very likely to see a man who owns a Labrador Retriever as a potential "great dad."

- People see male Siberian Husky owners as "more manly" than male owners of Bulldogs.
