Nearly two-thirds of pet owners relied on their pets to save them from a bad date

Two in every three Americans will end their relationship if their pet doesn't approve, according to new research. A survey of 2,000 single and dating Americans found that 67% of those in the dating scene feel this way, while 68% said their pet has the final say in who they date. The results showed that most Americans value their furry friend's opinion, as 71% of respondents trust their pet's judgment over their own. Likewise, 68% trust their pets more than their friends and 67% trust them more than their own family. In a study conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Zesty Paws, results found that almost seven in 10 Americans (69%) have dated someone their pet didn't like. Luckily, 69% of those who have had their pets reject their dates said their pets liked their next partner.
