Some guys go for blonds, some go for brunettes and others are into redheads. And then there are guys who are attracted to Golden Retrievers. According to a survey of 1,000 people conducted by Kloof (a mobile app for pet lovers) and published in the Miami Herald, when it comes to dating, the top dog breed for women to attract men is the Golden Retriever, followed closely by Labrador Retrievers, Chihuahuas, Poodles and Beagles.

For men looking to woo the ladies, the top breed likely to attract a potential girlfriend is the German Shepherd. Similar to their male counterparts, women are also enamored by men who own Golden Retrievers and Labrador Retrievers, as well as Huskies and French Bulldogs.

The Kloof survey also noted that although men are likely to date a woman who owns a Chihuahua, they often enter into the relationship thinking the woman is "easy" or "dumb." Similarly, a woman might find a man who owns a Pit Bull to be "slimy" or "sketchy," whereas a guy with a Siberian Husky or German Shepherd is viewed as "masculine."

What do you think? Are these "best breeds for dating" just stereotypes, or is there some truth in the survey's observations? Let us know your opinion in the comments below.
