“If you find somebody with the same lifestyle passion, you don’t have to start out at square one,” North said.When Joanie Pelzer signed up with a dog-friendly online dating service a few years ago, she was honest about her Chihuahua — he likes people more than other dogs, craves attention, steals food and can’t stand to ride in the backseat of a car.Despite that setback, having a common interest such as pets can help the search for love. about one’s passion makes it feel like you are looking for a needle in a smaller and far more relevant and appealing haystack,” said Michal Ann Strahilevitz, a professor of marketing at Golden Gate University in San Francisco.The founder of one of the dog-focused dating services, You Must Love Dogs Dating.com, agreed.Many of the sites encourage users to bring their dogs on first dates to break the ice or size up canine chemistry.Many dating sites cater to religious, cultural and political preferences, but won’t focus as heavily on interests like pets, music or travel, said Karen North, a professor of social media at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School of Journalism.Mc Dermott’s concerns won’t change Pelzer’s plans to return to Pets She remembers unpleasant run-ins with dates from sites that don’t cater to animal lovers — once a man nudged her pooch off the couch.

The idea remained just an idea for about eight years, Murray says, as life, kids, and career kept him busy.Even a man who loved animals as much as she did couldn’t keep up with her dog’s quirks.On their first date, her Chihuahua, Hubbell, stole the man’s breakfast as they drove from New York City to Long Island. “I still wonder if Hubbell didn’t have something to do with that,” said Pelzer, 47, an actress who runs her own social media company and met the man on Pets “About two years ago, I decided that it was time for Hot Diggiddy to become the place ‘where dog lovers find love,’” he says. There were one to four dogs living in his house at any given time.“It seemed like something was missing when I moved out on my own,” he said. A dog.” He spent time thinking about the things people are passionate about.
