Have you ever thought about which Hogwarts house you're in? Whether Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, or Slytherin, there's probably one that best represents you. And what about your pets? OK, mostly dogs, because let’s face it, 90 percent, of cats are Slytherins (don’t @ us. Every cat, no matter how sweet, is ambitious, shrewd, cunning, and has the capacity for evil — you know it in your heart). A shelter in Florida has decided the best way to let visitors know about the personality of their adoptable dogs is by doing just that: sorting them into Hogwarts houses.
Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando noticed a trend.
People were often coming into the shelter and asking which breeds different dogs were, instead of asking a more important question: what were the dogs like?
They decided to create a system to tell people about the dogs’ personalities.
Some of the people who worked at the shelter commented on how it would be much easier to tell people about the dogs if they could just sort them into houses based on their personalities, like at Hogwarts.
They thought, why not sort the dogs?
They decided that Hogwarts was onto something. They started having a behaviorist work with the dogs and sort them according to their personality traits. They call it “Pawgwarts.”
The dogs are sorted according to the four houses, but with a twist.
Instead of Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin, they appropriately changed the names to suit a more canine cohort. The dogs are sorted between Gryffindog, Hufflefluff, Ravenpaw, and Sloberin. So cute!
But the traits each house represents are the same.
Gryffindogs are brave and friendly, Hufflefluffs are hard-working and kind, Ravenpaws are clever and creative, and Sloberins are cunning and ambitious.
