What dog you are based on your neighborhood

Written by
Time Out Chicago editors

On an almost daily basis, we have to remind ourselves of how impractical it probably is to get a dog in Chicago, but that doesn't mean that we aren't dreaming about the day our lives will finally slow down, when we aren't stumbling from bar to bar on an almost nightly basis and can, you know, take time to walk a dog. This really just means that we spend plenty of time watching puppy videos on YouTube, finding cute gifs of our favorites and wishing for things like the Puppy Parade to happen more often. It also means we took the time to decide what dog you probably are based on what neighborhood you live in. Enjoy the puppy pics.
