Becoming a dog owner is an exciting experience, but it’s important to think carefully before taking on this responsibility. With so many pups to choose from, it’s hard to tell which will be best for your personality type and traits. Use my guide to find the right dog for you, based on your Zodiac sign.
Aries- Alaskan Malamute
Like this fire sign, the Alaskan Malamute is a leader. They like to be independent and to lead the pack. This dog is one that’s relatively large and known to be an aggressive breed. Besides these traits, the Alaskan Malamute has several others in common with this fire sign. This is why an Aries is a perfect sign to become an owner of an Alaskan Malamute. Similarly, the Alaskan Malamute is a dog with high energy levels and needs plenty of exercise each day. If you’re an Aries with lots of energy and looking for a loyal companion, consider getting yourself a headstrong, Alaskan Malamute.
Taurus- Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
For the laid back, lover of luxury, what better dog to own than a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel? Tauruses appreciate the physical beauty of things and are very easy going. Like a Taurus, a Cavalier King Charles can be perfectly content with a lazy day in bed, with some good food. Naturally being laid-back, your Cavalier King Charles is also content being active with you and chasing birds outside. This beautiful breed has been owned by many celebrities and even lived in the white house. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is unarguably the perfect dog for a Taurus.
Gemini- Golden Retriever
Gemini, the twin sign of the zodiac, are known for being playful, outgoing, and easy to get along with. Golden Retrievers have practically the same personality traits as Geminis, making them the perfect companions. Your Golden Retriever will get along with everyone, love to play with you, and also respond well to training. This dog breed is known for being versatile and easy-going, perfect for the Gemini with mood swings. A Golden Retriever and a true Gemini are practically a match made in heaven.
Cancer- Bernese Mountain Dogs
Cancers are one of the most emotional, affectionate and loving signs there are. Like cancers, the Bernese Mountain Dog is eager to please others and affectionate. This, along with their loyal and gentle nature, makes them the perfect dog for this delicate water sign. They also have beautiful, thick fur, making them ideal for an emotional Cancer to rest their head on to have a good cry. This family dog is ideal for this sweet and loving water sign.
Not many people could be compatible with Chihuahuas, but I think Leos would be the ideal companion for them. Leos like to have attention, are protective over those they love, socializing and yes, -more attention. Chihuahua’s are probably the sassiest breed, perfect for resting in a Leo’s boujee purse. Leo’s won’t mind the attention a Chihuahua’s loud bark or feisty attitude gives them. Chihuahua’s are also low maintenance- giving Leo’s plenty of time to perfect their appearance before going out with friends.
Virgo- Bichon Frise
The Bichon Frise is the perfect breed for loving and organized Virgos. Your Bichon Frise won’t shed or be able to create much of a mess in your house, perfect for cleanly Virgos. They’re also very easy going and quiet dogs, similar to this mutable earth sign. Virgos will love this sweet, fluffy, white dog.
Corgi’s are sweet, happy, playful dogs, who will likely be the best fit for Libras. This sign will love spending time with their sweet Corgi, who likes affection just as much as they do. Libras are also an easy-going sign who typically likes to joke around often. I’m not sure if it’s the way they strut or their mischevious ways, but Corgi’s always seem to make people laugh- perfect for a humorous Libra.
Scorpio’s can be an intense sign, not outwardly showing emotion, and enjoying being the independent, fearless leaders they are. Greyhounds are similarly an independent breed, and won’t be bothered if their Scorpio owner can’t give them attention all the time. This dog will also love to get exercise with their favorite Scorpio.
Sagittarius- Labrador Retriever
Like a Sagittarius, Labs love to explore and can be the perfect dog to take on an adventurous hike. Labs are also known to be friendly, like Sagittariuses who love to socialize and talk to everyone. Labs are also independent dogs, like this fire sign. Labs are also great for cuddling with if their Sagittarius would rather spend the night in.
Known to be workaholics, Capricorns won’t mind that their Dalmatian companion requires some of their time and energy, too. This strong and energetic dog is perfect for ambitious, go-getter Capricorns. Like their owners, Dalmatians are also known to be intelligent dogs, with loyal personalities.
Aquarius- Portuguese Water Dog
Portuguese Water Dogs are playful, friendly and energetic beings- just like an Aquarius. If you enjoy exercising and playing, this dog will be the perfect fit for you. Not to mention, this dog is perfect for this water sign because the two can enjoy swimming and playing games in the water together!
Pugs are probably one of the most laid back breeds there are- perfect for an easy-going and introverted Pisces. Pisces are known to be homebodies, liking to spend time alone, get comfortable, and doing their favorite artistic hobby. Pugs are also low maintenance and have very little energy, perfect for this water sign to stay home and cuddle with. Both being laid back, eager to please, and can both make you laugh, Pisces and pugs are a match made in heaven!
Choosing the right dog for you can be tricky- they all have different energy levels, personality types, and known traits. When searching for your perfect match, use this guide to find a pup with similar habits and personality traits as you. Whether you’re an Aries, Taurus, or Libra, there is a breed for everyone.
