Purple Personalities

Couch Potato

Like the easy life? Then I’m the perfect match for you. I’m a relaxed, laid-back kind of dog who enjoys long naps, watching movies, curling up on laps, and walking very short distances from the couch to the food bowl and back.

Internally Motivated

Constant Companion

Looking for an emotionally secure, mutually satisfying, low maintenance relationship? I am all you need. Let me sit at your feet, walk by your side, and I’ll be your devoted companion forever.

Socially Motivated

Teacher's Pet

I’ve got the whole package — smart, fuzzy, four legs, love to learn and live to please. Go ahead, teach me anything. Sit, stay, balance your checkbook, I can do it all. Keep me entertained and I’ll be yours forever.

About Meet Your Match™

Meet Your Match™ is designed to increase the human/animal bond — not based on a cute pair of eyes or the color of the animal’s coat, but based on the dog’s or cat’s behavior and the adopter’s expectations. The process focuses on the positive promotion of dogs and cats, the welcoming and friendly interactions with potential adopters and, ultimately, the matches you can make. This positive approach increases adoptions, decreases returns, improves interactions with clients and saves more lives!

The animals are evaluated through a personality test to identify their behavior characteristics. There are nine personality types for both canines and felines and each type is placed under three color-coded categories (purple, orange, or green) whichever best describes their behavior.
