A way to find a pet AND a boyfriend?

A speed date at the dog park?

Speed dating has been around forever. One enterprising pet rescue has decided to take the concept one step further, helping match dogs owners with, well, dogs:

On five-minute “dates,” the potential adopters will interact one-on-one with a furry suitor. This time is used to see if chemistry exists between the dog and person.

Event organizer Pam Partis hopes to arrange for eight dogs to attend the event.

Personally, I love this idea as a way to find new homes for well-socialized dogs. At last year’s Portland White Party, I was able to take a break from the human socializing to spend time with some of Oregon Humane Society‘s special guests:

I also wonder how effective an event like this would be for matching up humans? You already know everyone else there loves dogs…

Would you use an event like this as a way to meet singles? Or is that not fair to the poor homeless puppies?
