Though not all canines want to cuddle with cats, some breeds seem more likely to find a friend in felines than others. And when it happens, it’s a pretty special thing to watch — there’s nothing like seeing your cat give your dog a bath or watching your pup snuggle up with his favorite kitty.
It’s good news if you’re the owner of a Border Collie, a Border Terrier, a Labrador or a Poodle.
And it might be slightly disheartening if you’re the owner of a Bulldog, a Bloodhound, or a German Shepherd.
At least it is according to a new chart by data journalist David McCandless, which ranks 87 breeds of dog and compares them to the actual popularity of breeds in America.
