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.

That determined streak sure sounds like a Gryffindor trait. Harry, Ron, and Hermione don’t care much about rules when it comes to saving the day.
“Those patient Hufflepuffs are true, and unafraid of toil.” It’s like J.K Rowling wrote these verses with Golden Retrievers in mind. These well-mannered and lovable dogs are friendly, energetic, and eager to please.
