We dog lovers don’t need another reason to have furry family members, but one of the many perks is that having a dog makes you more attractive. In fact, science proves it!

A research team led by a University of Nevada-Las Vegas anthropologist named Peter Grey tested a few hypotheses about pets and dating.

The study found that 35 percent of women and 36 percent of men were more attracted to someone because they had a pet, 64 percent of women and 49 percent of men were more attracted to someone who adopted a rescue animal, and 75 percent of women and 54 percent of men said they would not date someone who didn’t like pets.
