This dog matching service hopes to provide soulmate-like pairings of pets and owners to give dogs a permanent and loving home. Like a human matchmaking service, PawsLikeMe invites users to take a two to five minute personality quiz, looking at four main traits: focus, confidence, energy and independence. The site then scans through all possible options and provides the user with a match. The Florida-based company even states that they have a 90% accuracy rate.

The idea is based on the fact that all dogs have a different personality disposition, just like humans. Simply knowing the general disposition of a certain dog breed is supposed to have doesn't guarantee that an individual dog has it. By finding a well-fitted match and doing so in a fun and interactive online method, the dog matching site increases the rate of successful adoptions. Through the site, hopeful pet owners can go from start to finish, even making an easy adoption payment online.
