Although a loving breed, this is not the main reason the Italian Greyhound is like the cat — instead, it's his need to chase after any intruders. And like some cat breeds, the Greyhound does best with adults and elderly owners.
Like a kitty, the Whippet enjoys spending his day relaxing around the house. And though he enjoys a run or two outside, similar to the cat he's intelligent and quiet.
Daring, courageous and extremely pleasant to be around, the Shiba Inu is cat-like in more than just his temperament. He enjoys keeping himself clean and groomed, and you'll often catch this pup meticulously licking himself like his kitty friends do.
Laid-back like most cat breeds, the Mi-Ki is a very relaxed pooch. Liking all humans — strangers included — he's a very friendly guy. Smart and adaptable, it's difficult for a human to dislike being around a loving breed such as this.
Perhaps the least to resemble its kitty friends, the Poodle is similar to the feline for the fact that he loves no one more than he loves himself. A dog who carries himself with merit, he may also believe he owns the house in the same way cats feel this. Enjoying a lot of activity, he's bound to get into mischief if bored.
