Lifestyle is defined by the quality of food it consumes, the amount of exercise it gets, the kind of maintenance care, housing, and entertainment provided, and in very large part--by breeding.

The breeds carry markers for activity level, personality and temperament.
He could be a working breed, herding sheep, or a hunting breed with a big outdoor life, or a city dog helping in rescue or law enforcement.
In fact, your pet’s lifestyle probably mirrors your own. An runner will choose an energetic dog to jog with, a hunter will go for a bird dog or hound, a policeman wants a guardian type.
Seniors appreciate quieter, indoor dogs with smaller physical needs. Families want dogs that will share their activities like playing in the yard, hiking, boating and camping. Empty-nesters want a pack of playmates.
Someone who requires constant companion-ship of an easier type may prefer the quiet dignity of a domestic shorthair cat, or a houseful of them. For a more challenging pet, they look for Asian Breeds or Coons.
Luckily for humans, pet breeds are very consistent, so if you want certain characteristics to match your lifestyle, and do your homework, you can find a fit. Conversely, a pet that does not fit your lifestyle, or your family's, is a bad prospect for happiness and a good one for the shelter.
