    Just what the title says - have you guys found any decent breed selection quizzes? I'm looking for a link or two to send to a friend to give him some breed ideas to look into - he knows that the results should be taken with a grain of salt already but needs a starting point.

    I know Animal Planet does one on their site...but the results are definitely to be taken with a grain of salt.

    Animal Planet gives me some okay results for about half the dogs on the list. The others I've tried give me really bad fits.

    Consistently, the Animal Planet selector has given me Malinois, Doberman, Aussie, Standard Poodle and Rottweiler. I do own or have owned Mal, Dobe and Aussie. Standards have been on my list for a while, too.
