When Joanie Pelzer signed up with a dog-friendly online dating service a few years ago, she was honest about her Chihuahua — he likes people more than other dogs, craves attention, steals food and can't stand to ride in the backseat of a car.Even a man who loved animals as much as she did couldn't keep up with her dog's quirks.Pets Partners And Pals is all about enabling you to find that special, like-minded person to hit it off with in just the right way.

The web is filled with sad stories of couples who hit a wall because one of them just doesn’t really love the other’s dog. The site is the brainchild of Scott Murray, who’s been ruminating about a dog-friendly dating site for more than a decade.“The number of people looking to provide for their dogs and looking for love online has hit an all-time high,” Murray says.“I wanted to get involved.”Hot Diggiddy was set up to be more than a hook-up site.There are a couple of different ways dog lovers can describe what they are looking for. “Remember, ‘social dating’ is about getting to know a person and how they respond in social situations — and in dog situations.” Hot Diggiddy officially launched a week ago (was in beta for about a year) with two small local newspaper articles, and the response has been surprising.The site is now approaching 500 new registrants, says Murray, and new profiles are created hourly.
