Perfect Pet?

extracted from The Sun.UK

HE may be more Frankenstein's monster than beloved pooch - but barmy boffins claim this picture shows Britain's perfect pet.
Scientists quizzed 2,000 animal lovers and asked them to list their ideal traits - before designing a computer profile of the creature.

The freakish results included the ears of a rabbit, face of a cat, body of a golden retriever and tail of a horse.

The monstrous mammal - named Max - has high energy levels, loves daily walks and sleeps for an average of nine hours 27 minutes a day.

Pete Markey, who helped conduct the research for insurance firm More Than, said: "This experiment has provided great insight into exactly what it is about their animals people love, both in terms of looks and personality.

''It goes to show what a pet-obsessed nation we are."
