Meet Your Match ASPCA



We’ve recently begun an adoption program called Meet Your Match™.  The idea is

like, but for people and pets.  A color coded system helps determine

which dog is best suited to fit your lifestyle and expectations.



Rather than choosing a dog based on looks, the Canine-ality Assessment takes

the mystery out of the selection process by reliably predicting how a dog is likely

to behave when arriving to your home.  Through this process, you will also learn

about your unique preferences and expectations.  It is the initial compatibility

between you and your buddy that lays the foundation for the human/canine bond

to develop, increasing the potential for a successful, permanent life together.




Every dog has a canine-ality™

The Canine-alities

constant companion


Looking for an emotionally secure, mutually satisfying, low maintenance relationship? I am all you need. Let me sit at your feet, walk by your side, and I’ll be your devoted companion forever.

couch potato


Like the easy life? Then I’m the perfect match for you. I’m a relaxed, laid back kind of dog who enjoys long naps, watching movies, curling up on laps, and walking very short distances from the couch to the food bowl and back.


teacher's pet


I’ve got the whole package—smart, fuzzy, four legs, love to learn, and live to please. Go ahead, teach me anything. Sit, stay, balance your checkbook, I can do it all. Keep me entertained and I’ll be yours forever.



I’m a fun-loving, happy-all-the-time, glass-is-half-full kind of dog looking for someone who loves to laugh and play around. Must have a great sense of humor and a bunch of tennis balls.



Shy yet charming canine searching for patient owner with relaxed lifestyle. Looking for gentle guidance to help me come out of my shell. Treat me sweet and kind and I’ll blossom.

busy bee


I’m a naturally playful, curious, and trusting canine. Take me for a big walk every day; give me something to do. After my job’s done, I’ll curl up in front of the fire with you in the evenings. I’m a dog on a mission to please you and myself.


life of the party


I think everything is fun, interesting, and meant for play, especially you. Anything you do, I’ll want to do too. With my own brand of surprises, life with me will keep you constantly on your toes, and the fun is guaranteed.

free spirit


Intelligent, independent, confident, and clever, I prefer making my own decisions but will listen to you if you make a good case. We’re partners in this adventure. Treat me like one and we’ll both live happily ever after.



Want to get more exercise? Action is my middle name. I’ve got tons of energy, and just like the sun, I’m burning and working 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I’ll run for miles, chase a ball for hours, and still want to play at the end of the day.
