‘Dating Website’ Matches You With The PURfect Rescue Dog

Most people consider the choice to rescue a dog as being a no-brainer. Making the specific choice as to which rescue dog is right for you, however, may take a little thought. After all, there are so many different personalities, preferences, and even lifestyles to keep in mind. Once you have a dog in your life, you will be committed to caring for it. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just choose a rescue dog as easily as you use a dating service? It is that easy!

I’d like to introduce you to How I Met My Dog, a website for those who want to rescue a dog. USA Today reports that they are like a match.com for potential dog owners.

When you create an account, you will be asked a number of questions. Some of them will have to do with your feelings about being a parent to a new pet. What type of pet owner will you be? Others will ask about your personal choices in life, including how often you exercise, your social schedule and even where you live. As you answer each question, you will be one step closer to finding the perfect dog for you.

HIMMD will make suggestions for dogs that are in your area after you have finished with the survey. Each of the dogs are looking for a forever home but you could always set up a profile in advance, even if you’re not ready to adopt right away. You can adopt within a few months or perhaps you could just test out the website but it’s fun to use and it can be a rather eye-opening experience.
