When millennials are looking for a new home, they look to man's best friend.

According to a recent survey by SunTrust Mortgage, 33% of millennials are influenced more by their dogs than marriage or children. 

The two factors that topped having room for a dog were wanting more space and a chance to build equity.

42% of millennials who have never purchased a home say their dog, or a desire to have one, would impact the home they plan to buy in the future.
