What Dog Breed You Should Get Based On Your MBTI

According to nearly everyone in the world, a dog is a man's (and woman's) best friend. Chances are, if someone isn't a dog-lover, then they're probably not a life-lover, either. Anyone who owns a pup won't hesitate to describe his or her personality, what they were like as a puppy, and how they've grown into an adult dog... and that's because even though they're animals, they still have personalities just like we do.
