Tell us what dogs you ended up with, in the comments box below.


  1. I got an Afghan Hound. Unusual choice – I don’t believe I’ve ever met one in the UK!

  2. It worked for me! My perfect breed is a Border Collie according to this, and I have two!

  3. American Water Spaniel (96% Match), seems like a great dog for me, totally different from my current Yorkie/Toy-Poodle cross though!
