    Have you seen this webpage?

    You upload a picture of yourself and it matches you to a dog up for adoption. It's really neat even if you can't adopt him :). I am, apparently, similar to a heeler mix from Australia!

    I was matched to a Mastiff mix in some place I've never heard of… It was really cool though! I'm trying to match my bother now. :p

    lol, it might be cute,
    but what a lousy way to choose a breed!!:ROFLMAO:

    what if some couch potato ends up with a border collie.......what if a jogger ends up with a mastiff?

    Researching and matching up (honestly) the time and energy a person can devote to their dog's energy needs,
    is way more logical way to choose a breed.

    STILL, IT'S VERY CUTE!!! :ROFLMAO:

    i want to try it!

    lol, i can not get it to "accept" my photo. darn. It says do not use too dark of a photo, so Maybe because i do have dark color hair with bangs on my forehead, but, i tried 2 different photos, keeps telling me 'can't accept that photo'.:(

    that's pretty bad, when a dog-site won't even accept my photo!!:oops::( :ROFLMAO:

    i finally got it to "accept" my photo,:D even though my face was not centered, (the nose thing was not really on my nose, lol) and i got matched to a yellow lab mix:ROFLMAO: (in Australia, think).

    Haha, yeah, I'd never choose a dog that way (me, with a heeler, in an apartment? Sounds like a recipe for disaster) but it's really cute!

    I was matched to a German Shepard cross. Really cool site, but defiantly not a good way to find the right dog for you.

    I agree. NOT a good way to find your man's best friend.O_o But it's a GREAT idea, because it matches you with a RESCUE dog, which might make you want to rescue instead of buy.:D

    I got matched (very weird) to a white, 18 month old Sharpe cross in Te Awamutu SPCA. Looks nothing like me!!! The accuracy was 55%.:( Gonna try it again.

    :D:ROFLMAO: I got matched to a white and tan heeler, 4 months old in Whangarei??? Never heard of that, australia perhaps?
    But a really cute dog.
    And nope not a good way to choose, but fun though

    I LOVE doing this.:LOL: This time it was 68% accurate. I got matched to a 1 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier, brown and white.:) In Wellington SPCA.

    It was fun, but I'd never use this to decide for me which dog to adopt.

    Wow, very different dogs, Dogster! But they say it's still in beta, haha.

    They should add a small questionaire like: Want an high-energy dog or a low energy dog? Do you mind shedding? Do you have kids? etc for when they release the final version.

    Very cute! They definitely need some questions for it but it is in beta so I'll give them that.

    I was matched with a pug/beagle mix the first time. Haha no. Then I was matched with a Mastiff/German Shepherd mix. That's more like it!!

    I sent them the suggestion. Hopefully they'll read it.

    Lol they advertised this heaps on tv here [I'm from NZ!!] - it was mostly to increase awareness of rescue dogs and adopting them. :)
