Kloof, a new iPhone app for pet lovers, conducted a study of which breed of dog might attract the opposite sex. To the owner, I mean. Not the dog.
In a survey of 1,000 pet lovers via smart phone app, the results are in: men are overwhelmingly most likely to view women with Golden retrievers as "girlfriend material." The other dogs on the list for women are Labrador retrievers, beagles, poodles and Chihuahuas. (Ironically, later in the study, Chihuahuas are indicated to be thought of as the dog of choice for "dumb women" who are "probably hot" and are "five times more likely to have a one-night stand" than the female Golden retriever owners—for real. That's all in there.) Poodle and Chihuahua owners are also generalized as "more high-maintenance."
On the flip side, men who have Siberian huskies are considered manly and an Golden or Labrador retriever indicates to women that the owner would be a good father; the two remaining breeds are French bulldogs and German Shepherds. Also, people are more likely to think of a man who owns a pit bull or Rottweiler as "slimy" or "sketchy," which is the worst, because there are very sweet pit bulls owned by very sweet guys. :(
Other interesting dumbassery to be found: no mutts? Forget it. You're adopting a mutt from a shelter, you may as well hang up your genitals in the back of the coat closet.
