    Even though we love all dogs, most of us have to admit: We definitely play favorites. We each have our "type" — that specific breed we find the most adorable, because, come on now. Dogs. We love them a little too much.

    In fact, the type of dog breed we love says a lot about us — science says so (and so does popular opinion, and even some celebrities). Didn't think your love of corgis actually revealed your personality? Well, it does.

    Regardless of your favorite breed, there are plenty of purebreds and equally adorable mutts waiting in shelters across the country for their forever homes, so remember: Adopt, don't shop! You can even find a shelter specifically for the breed you're looking for. Here are a few of our favorites and what they reveal about the people who love them.
