Do Our Pets Pick Us?

You’ve all seen the pictures of pets and their owners that look just like each other. Now researchers believe that pets and their owners also share similar personality traits such as happiness, intelligence, independence and a sense of humor.  These similarities continue to increase as they grow older together.

We saw this all the time at The Pooch. Over time, many of our customers seemed to look more and more like their dog, and the dog’s personalities almost always matched that of their owner. If the dog was hyper and crazy, the owner demonstrated high anxiety and energy.  If the pooch was laid back and calm, the owner was too.

This doesn’t just happen with dogs, there are cat owners that look and act just like their purring buddies, and a lizard owner says he looks just like his owner.  Poor guy.
