BOSTON (AP) – People looking for the perfect family pet tend to choose a dog based on appearance or breed – but that's barking up the wrong tree.
"If you think they're cute, you bring them home," said Jodi Andersen, a dog trainer and author.
That's why Andersen, along with MaryAnn Zeman and Sharon Mosse, founded the new online business How I Met My Dog. It works like Match or eHarmony, fitting humans with dogs based on what really matters: personality, lifestyle and behavior.
