Dogs are said to be man’s best friends, but every woman who has a dog knows that they’re a woman’s best friend too.

No matter what dog you decide to adopt, they’ve all been picked out by you, for you, most likely because something stood out to you.

Whether it was their adorable little face that you wanted to pamper with love, or their spunky, happy personality that you couldn’t resist adding to your life, you chose based on their appearance and energy that they gave off.

And sometimes that means that those two things might have been similar to your own!

Below, we decided to take a look at a bunch of dog breeds as compared to their owners. Do you match up or do you balance each other out?

Maybe this could help you decide on what breed is right for your lifestyle!
