Health: Your Personality And Your Dog

By Stephanie Stahl

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — People who have Labrador retrievers are more agreeable and conscientious, according to new research being presented at the British Psychological Society.

Here are some of the findings: herding dogs, like German shepherds, and their owners are more extroverted; hound dogs, greyhounds and beagles are more emotionally stable; and people who own Chihuahuas or other toy dogs are open to new experiences.
