Default Stupid "breed chooser" apps and games

So, I think I have come to some sort of conclusion as to why people get the wrong dog. My daughter has a "guess the breed" game (which by itself is a REALLY fun game...and she knows a ton of breeds too!) that also has a "which breed is good for you" app.

Her and I were playing around with it and I was purposely choosing things that SHOULD have given me Saint Bernard, Great Dane, and other giant breed dogs that are generally known for relaxing.

Guess what I was told was a good match? By 76-92%??? Australian Shepherd, Border Collie, Boxer, Pit Bull, German Shepherd...and the list full of active dogs that NEED jobs came up! No way!

Even my 10 year old recognized the problem and said "Mom, you think this is why people get dogs that end up needing a different home?"

Spot on kid. Spot on.
