Attention dog lovers: The Tinder for dogs is here!

This week in weird business news…

Tinder is great for finding human companionship (for life or you know… one night) but what about lonely little puppies? They just want someone to take walks and share bones with! Well now there’s Tindog! It’s just like Tinder but… for canines.

The app allows owners to post a picture of their four-legged friend and to create a profile with some basic information. The owner can then swipe through other profiles - they swipe right if they like the dog and left if they’d rather pass. When two owners match up they can start chatting and set up a doggy play date.

Owners are also encouraged to write a bit about themselves as well, in order to limit the creepiness of the app and to make sure that doggy chaperones will have something to talk about when their pets meet up. Just be sure to leave your cats at home.

The app is available on Google Play and has a rating of 3.2 out of 5. One user reviewed the app and wrote (jokingly—I think), “Great! Thank you Tindog, my dogs were so annoying, but I finally managed to get them dates!”

This isn’t the first dog meet-up app, believe it or not. There’s also “Meet my Dog,” and “Sniffr,” which takes its cues from human-dating app Grindr.
