    My hamster is an INTJ. I found escape plans scribbled in his little cage

    Trinket the Maine Coone-ISTP. Pretty much a badass, I think of her as kind of a feline Rambo. I doubt she needed us to survive; she lived outside and caught and devoured insects and small mammals even through her late teens (died on her 20th birthday.) She was quite the resourceful huntress. Used to catch chipmunks, take them to the laundry room, eat them and leave their feet. Not particularly sociable and tended to shy away from people. She wasn't really scared of them; she just chose to ignore them. Didn't get along with other animals, which was usually their loss. She would often chase medium sized dogs out of the yard, though I suspect they just wanted to be friends.

    Shadow the Poodle-ExFP. My girlfriend's miniature poodle. Likes to be the center of attention, but his main concern is ultimately food, hence he is a bit chubby. I'm guessing N because he's a bit of a klutz and doesn't care for exercise; if you take him for a walk you may have to carry him home. He does, however enjoy bubble baths, and that in combination with his love of fine dining hints at S. Wants to be friends with everyone, including the skunk that lives in the woods behind her house, and gets a massive energy burst when a bunch of people show up.

    I think my dog is an ENFP, she's so sensitive and carefree and loves everyone.

    My pitbull is a goofy, ridiculously social ESFP.

    I thought pitbulls were bred to fight. I mean every drug dealer here thinks so - that's why they keep them - to intimidate rather than to socialise.

    They do say, though, that owners take after their dogs. So I was wondering Jane, do you take after your pitbull?

    It's true you speak English rather well. Of course this could mean you are a well spoken drug dealer. Or is it that like all pitbull owners you tell us, "Go on, go on, pat him - he won't bite", as we look into the eyes of a muscle dog who for generations has been bred to do just that.

    Victor,

    They are often used for that purpose, unfortunately. People in my neighborhood used to try to buy her out of nowhere (to breed more fighters I'm sure).

    Breeds do have tendencies, but it is possible to mitigate those tendencies with training, consistency and a healthy environment. There are also outliers. Terriers, and pit bulls in particular, usually need strong handlers because they are strong willed. But they are also more likely to be animal aggressive and not human aggressive. There are reasons for this: fighting dogs need to heed their masters and not bite them even after engaging in a brutal fight with another dog.

    Of course, the term 'pit bull' itself encompasses different distinct breeds, one of which used to be a renowned family pet ("nanny dog") less than a century ago. I don't know which type mine is because I got her at a shelter and she may be a bit of a mutt. It took some convincing on the part of the staff: she was wounded (ears pierced too) and pretty fierce looking. But she had just given birth and had nursed some kittens along with her litter. Everyone at the shelter had fallen in love with her, but no one would take her looking the way she did and she was going to be euthanized.

    I am very happy to have her now. She's a loveable goofball. I've seen a toddler poke at her, slap her, pull her tail and chase her everywhere: she just runs behind the couch or bed with her tail between her legs. Of course, this is something I don't encourage, but when things like that happen I don't doubt that the decision to keep her was the right one.

    So, in short, I'm not a drug dealer. Just a sucker. I realize that she makes some people uncomfortable, so I keep her out of the way if that is the case. I wouldn't want anyone to be nervous or upset even if I'm certain she wouldn't harm them. So rest assured that I won't tell you or anyone else to trust or pet her if you don't want to.

    OK, I think my cat Zoe is an INFP because she's very sweet and affectionate, but she has this Delta-quadrant syndrome like she'll let the other cats pull rank on her. She can be very manipulative, though, when she wants attention. She'll wake me up when I'm sleeping just to pet her.

    Then Puisse is an ISTP because she's quiet, chill, distant, but this great huntress who brings me "presents."

    Midnight is probably an ESFP because she's very narcissistic and cute - and she knows how cute she is. She's very sweet and affectionate, but there's this obvious conceit to her, and she is selfish and will jump in front of the other cats and try to take their food. She will then proceed to turn around and give out the tiniest, squeakiest little manipulative meow like "but I'm just a baby!" She sleeps on my bed a lot. She's definitely a "lap cat."

    Mr. Skirt (yes he's male) is probably an ENFJ. He's awfully "care taking" for a male, and while he's very affectionate like Zoe and Midnight, he's more...egalitarian about it. Mr. Skirt totally has Fe.
