Owning a pet is takes a lot of sacrifices and you should treat your pet as a family. However, if you are looking for love you can boost your chances in finding someone when you adopt a furry friend, according to a new survey.

The survey were done by Petsies, a company that makes stuffed animals. They surveyed 1,000 men and women and ask the participants how attracted they were to the opposite sex when possessing differently sized cats and dogs. Researchers showed study participants 12 pictures of the same people. Half of the group saw the person with a pet, while the other half saw him or her without a pet. Researchers used two pictures for each type of pet, and they were classified as “cat, kitten, puppies, small-sized dogs, medium-sized dogs and large-sized dogs.”

Cat owners may be unlucky in love

The study shows women rated men with puppies as almost 24% sexier, 14% more trustworthy and 13% more attractive than the same man not carrying a dog. Also dogs that are medium sized (not too big or too small) gave women the biggest sexiness boost, as men rated them about 7% sexier and more attractive than if they weren’t carrying a dog at all. But in terms of trustworthiness, women with small dogs were rated by men with about 9% more so than women without a dog.

As for women who owns kittens or cats, they were perceived as the least attractive, and women with cats were rated lowest on sexiness and trustworthiness. Also for men, owning a large dog lessen their sexiness and attractiveness. And for the men, being a medium-sized dog owner led to the lowest trustworthy rating.
