PawsLikeMe is like eHarmony.com but pairs you with the perfect puppy

Finding the right dog to be your perfect pet can be a challenge. How will a particular breed fit into your established lifestyle? Will the dog like you? I mean, it's not like there's a website out there that can match you up with the right dog ... OH WAIT, WE HAVE THAT NOW!

Meet PawsLikeMe, a dog adoption matching website that works like eHarmony.com, but for pairing you up with the perfect rescue puppy – and with an algorithm that claims an average 91 percent match accuracy.

"Our work in rescue taught us of the need to keep animals out of shelters," explains the official website. "The euthanasia statistics are staggering, and the lives lost will never be regained. Though the numbers are improving, too many animals are euthanized each year, and PawsLikeMe wants to help make that number even smaller by giving current guardians, shelters and rescues an alternative path to finding a new home for a pet."

Here's how it works: You take a quiz at PawsLikeMe's website – either the tremendously thorough 39-question version or a shorter four-question assessment – and lock in your location. From there, PawsLikeMe will create a matching score based on its four key personality quadrants – energy, confidence, focus and independence – and find what rescue dogs in your area have compatible ratings.

Then, the website shows you all of the precious pups in that fit your personality – and vice versa – and you can pick the pup that scratches your particular pet itch, plus give a deserving doggy a happy home. 

So for those looking for looking for a canine companion in their life – or for those looking to rehome a dog in need – check out PawsLikeMe. The odds are good you won't be sent barking up the wrong tree.
