DOG CHOICE REVEALS HER PERSONALITY

Susan Heitler, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist, says that when a woman chooses a dog, "something about that dog needs to resonate with something the woman likes about herself":

The pocketbook pup
Maltese, Chihuahua. It means: She loves attention and flouts rules by taking the dog everywhere. John C. Wright, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at Mercer University, says of such owners, "They're dying to hear, 'Oh, what a darling puppy.' -- as though it says something about them."

The playful pooch
Labrador, golden retriever. It means: She's adventurous, a guy's girl who's not afraid to sweat. A Lab says playful; a golden implies affection -- they like to lick, says Heitler. Licking is good.

The mutt
Could be anything. It means: She's bighearted, a rescuer, a woman who looks beneath the surface. "She's very confident and says, 'I see value in you, even though everyone else in the world thinks you're ugly,'" says Wright. Don't take it personally.

The chic dog
Pug, Kerry blue terrier. It means: She's trendy, possibly superficial, Heitler says. She may have bought it as a fashion accessory without studying its traits, warns Marty Becker, D.V.M., author of "Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul."

The powerhouse
Great Dane, Irish wolfhound. It means: She likes a challenge -- and protection. A powerful dog may mirror her personality. "The hidden agenda may be, 'Be careful and don't do anything stupid,'" ] says Wright.
