Study finds men with dogs are seen as more attractive
BY: TROY FRISBY
Dogs have long been called man's best friend, but they may be their best wingmen too. A new study shows that men who own dogs are actually seen as more attractive.
A group of professors published a study called "The Roles of Pet Dogs and Cats in Human Courtship and Dating." It's certainly not the sexiest name, considering the subject, but that's fine.

They surveyed 1200 pet-owning Match.com users. 61 percent of them were women, and the majority said owning a pet makes a person more attractive.
And the type of pet does matter because 39 percent of them said owning a cat is a deal breaker. That's way harsh, but let's face it, cats probably don't care.
Did we need a study to tell us this? Probably not, but if pet adoption is something you were on the fence about, this may be just the push you need to get over to the animal shelter.
So if you're single and looking for love, remember that hitting the dog park may be a better option than the bar.
