Animal Personality Types

Lucy: We recently came across articles about personality types. It’s geared toward what animal personality type a person has. But why couldn’t this also apply to us pups and cats and birds and other anipals?

Xena: But we already have our own personality type. It’s called “dog.”

Lucy: Just go with this for a minute, Xena. Let’s take a look at our choices.
Personality Types: Lion, Otter, Golden Retriever, and Beaver

Xena: I bet all the dogs at Three Pups and a Couple of Kitties have Golden Retriever personalities, BOL!

Lucy: Probably. But continuing, here’s a very brief summary of each type.

Lions: Strengths— Visionary, practical, productive, strong-willed, independent, decisive, leader
Weaknesses— Cold, domineering, unemotional self-sufficient, unforgiving, sarcastic, cruel

Otters: Strengths— Outgoing, responsive, warm, friendly, talkative, enthusiastic, compassionate
Weaknesses— Undisciplined, unproductive, exaggerates, egocentric, unstable

Golden Retrievers: Strengths— Calm, easy-going, dependable, quiet, objective, diplomatic, humorous
Weaknesses— Selfish, stingy, procrastinator, unmotivated, indecisive, fearful, worrier

Beavers: Strengths— Analytical, self-disciplined, industrious, organized, aesthetic, sacrificing
Weaknesses— Moody, self-centered, touchy, negative, unsociable, critical, revengeful

Lucy: Hmm, I wonder which one I am. Let’s see…I’m easily frightened, very friendly, love people, easy-going and compliant with the rules. I will run and play with other dogs, but I won’t play ball or other games, and I won’t do stuff like Freestyle or Agility. I don’t bark much and I’m sure not an alpha. I think maybe I’m a Golden Retriever.

Xena: I’m whichever one is loud, busy, in charge and always ready to do anything. I love to play and work at my Freestyle and cuddle with my Mommy. I think maybe I’m a Lion (without the weaknesses part, of course).

Which one are you? Here’s a link to read more about the types. You peeps can play along too. We’d love to know which animal personality types our friends have!

  1. Charlee: “I’m a lion.”
    Chaplin: “Me too.”
    Lulu (rolls eyes): “Yeah, shocker.”
    Charlee: “Well which one are you, Lulu?”
    Lulu: “I’m the strengths of all of them all rolled up, with none of the weaknesses.”
    Charlee & Chaplin (both roll eyes): “Yeah, shocker.”

  2. Xena, your joke made us laugh! Lucy, we love that you are one of us! Um the only thing is you know all of those golden retriever negatives like selfish…oh wait I do like to take toys away from my sisters ~ Bea. Yes you do but I’m not indecisive well except when I’m trying to decide if I want to go out or stay in. ~ Belle. Yes you do do that but I certainly don’t worry well unless I’m busy chasing iimaginarywhatchamacallits from our yard. Hmmm guess those golden retriever negatives are accurate after all. 🤣

    1. See, you are Goldens! It seems those “negative” traits aren’t always so bad, the way you describe them. And I don’t understand why they don’t have a personality type called “Schnauzer.” I fit that one best! XOX Xena
