Dating Sites for Dog Owners

Popular websites pair up like-minded single dog lovers.

Forget tall, dark and handsome. What women really want is a man who loves dogs.

A 2005 study by Biz Rate Research found that nearly three in four women said they were more likely to date or marry someone who also has a pet. Among men, the number is a still-high 50 percent.

The good news is there are several websites devoted to matching up like-minded dog lovers. Here’s a rundown of several popular ones.
