If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you probably already know what Hogwarts house you belong to. But have you ever wondered how your dog would be sorted? You're not alone –in fact, one shelter sorts dogs in Harry Potter houses to boost adoptions.

Each good boy or girl has unique traits, but a dog's overall personality is partially dictated by breed. Learning additional fun information like which breed is best for your zodiac sign or which Hogwarts houses breeds belong to can help you appreciate your furry BFF even more.

Is your pup a brave Gryffindor, a brainy Ravenclaw, a friendly Hufflepuff, or a cunning Slytherin? Only the Sorting Hat knows for sure, but each dog's breed provides some clues.

Border Collies were bred for intelligence, so it's no surprise they fit right into Ravenclaw. They love to learn and take on new tasks, they’re problem solvers, and they need a lot of physical and mental activity. These pups often master new skills on their own, too.

There are two kinds of Welsh Corgis: Pembroke and Cardigan. But regardless of the breed, they both share a lot of traits that prove they belong in Hufflepuff. Corgis are outgoing dogs who love people and are happiest when at home, surrounded by their family.
