The best friendships are made when each zodiac sign adopts a dog that suits their personality. Here’s what you should know about the zodiac signs as dogs and which puppies are perfect for them.
Zodiac signs as dogs: which puppies suit your personality?
Dogs are precious creatures that give us infinite love and loyalty. They also have unique physical, emotional, and intellectual characteristics. Dogs with curly hair have wonderful curls in their fur, calm dogs tend to have loose personalities, and there are even dogs that get along with cats – but did you know that there are certain breeds of dogs that are best compatible with certain zodiac signs ?
If you are planning on adopting a dog soon and are in tune with your zodiac sign, then it is only appropriate to learn which breed of dog will best suit your personality and home. Each sign has different characteristics, so it is best to study the zodiac signs as dogs for compatibility. Animal activist and ambassador for the American Humane Society, Jean Shafiroff, has a simple answer to this question: “They have to get along,” she says, “and that can happen over time, but they have to understand each other. In general, people like other people who are similar [to themselves] and that also applies to animals. They like animals they can identify with. “
Let’s take a look at which cute dog breeds would best suit your zodiac sign – matches that really are written in the stars!
Aries: German Shepherd Dog
Aries is a very idiosyncratic sign that also has tremendous leadership skills. Therefore, an Aries would likely prefer a breed of dog that reflects these traits and is able to follow their lead. According to Shafiroff, these breeds include the German Shepherd, Doberman and Weimaraner. Fun Fact: The Weimaraner is also one of the fastest breeds of dogs in the world.
Taurus is a loyal and reliable sign who prefers the finer things in life. While finding a loyal breed of dog is a relatively simple task, there are certain breeds of dogs that are considered more regal. Shafiroff recommends breeds like the Boxer, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and Great Dane (one of the largest dog breeds out there) for this sign.
Twins: Bichon Frize
Some people are best for calming dogs, while others are more comfortable around dogs that are full of energy and curiosity. Twins would probably prefer the latter type of dog, as people under this sign are curious themselves and like to try new things. Some dog breeds that share this spirit are Bearded Collie, Bichon Frize, and Portuguese Water Dog. These highly active and energetic dogs will always be ready for a new adventure. Don’t forget to find out what some of the cutest white dog breeds are.
Cancer is very family oriented and takes family relationships very seriously. Ultimate loyalty is paramount to a Cancer. This is why Shafiroff says bulldogs and rottweilers are great family dogs, especially if you have a cancer in the house. Most people have the image of a golden retriever on their mind when they think of a good dog for the family, but despite their unfair reputation, Rottweilers can actually be very cute and affectionate. In addition, they are excellent watchdogs, which would be important for a Cancer, as this zodiac sign always wants to protect loved ones. Shafiroff himself kept a Rottweiler and noticed how strong the family bond between the dog Bella and her husband was. “My husband put Bella right in the car and Bella sat in my passenger seat and acted like the woman,” recalls the animal rights activist with a laugh. While this sign is sensitive, it can often be moody too, which is why Chow Chows and Chihuahuas can go well together. These dog breeds can definitely be affectionate, but are often picky about who to bond with – much like a cancer.
As sociable as they are, Leo is a sign that a dog needs to be equally charming and positivity. As for zodiac compatibility, cheerful and active breeds like Cairn Terriers (like Toto from The Wizard of Oz), Dachshunds, Pomeranians, and Pugs would do fine with a Leo – just think of all the precious pug pictures that would be taken. These breeds are fun-loving and need an owner who is just as happy and excited as they are! You could also get a mixed breed dog that has traits of these adorable breeds.
It’s no surprise that Shafiroff assigned several working dog breeds to the Virgin: Border Collie, Greyhound, Pointer, Shetland Sheepdog, and Spanish Waterdog. As an analytical, hardworking, and determined sign, Virgo would appreciate a dog who would reflect their own values. But there is more to Virgo – and these races – than their productivity. “I also find that virgins are very sensitive,” she says. “Sensitivities are not necessarily shown. Sometimes people are very sensitive, but they mask it just like these dogs could. ”This is why it is important to have adequate time with a dog before it is officially adopted.

Libra is one of the gentlest signs. This zodiac sign loves balance and harmony, which is why it would benefit from a relationship with a casual and love-bred dog. While some people may fear larger dogs, large dogs can actually be warmer and more cuddly than smaller ones. Newfoundland is the perfect example. An adult male dog can weigh up to 150 pounds or more, but any dog expert will tell you that these dogs are all made out of sweetness and devotion. Other dog breeds that a Libra might like, according to Shafiroff, are the Bernese Mountain Dog and Siberian Husky (come on, who doesn’t like to cuddle with a husky and look at cute husky pics? Especially those with blue eyes!)
Scorpio: pit bull
The scorpion is a true force of nature; a Scorpio never goes into anything. You are resourceful, brave, and passionate. Only a dog with equal amounts of these traits could harmonize well with a Scorpio. “A strong person wants a strong dog,” says Shafiroff, which is why she recommends Bloodhound, Bull Mastiff, Golden Retriever (one of the smartest breeds of dogs) and Pitbull for a Scorpio. Some of these breeds can be intimidating, especially if you don’t know a lot about them, but they are also very cute. Shafiroff repeats the popular saying, “There are no bad dogs, there are bad owners.” Some of these dogs are fiercer than others, but a Scorpio can definitely handle them.
Sagittarius: Russell Terrier
This sign is always the life of the party. Her laugh is contagious and everyone wants to be around her. They love to travel, have adventures and share their positive attitude with the world. Some dog breeds that mimic this type of personality are Boston Terriers, French Bulldogs, Russell Terriers, and Shih Tzu. These dogs are fun, know how to make you laugh, and are very adaptable to new situations. So, if a Sagittarius decides to find his next adventure, these dogs won’t mind a ride – short legs and everything.
Capricorn: Shiba Inu
Capricorns are tough, reliable people. They tend to be cautious and have a great appreciation for discipline. The type of dog that best suits a Capricorn is one who has a calm demeanor and is not loud or fussy. A very energetic dog would likely put too much stress on a Capricorn. Shafiroff suggests Belgian Shepherd Dog, Shar Pei, Pekingese, Rhodesian Ridgeback, and Shiba Inu. “People tend to describe Shiba Inus as independent,” says the animal rights activist. Game made! Take a look at some of the best dog breeds for first time owners.
Aquarius: Labrador Retriever
Aquarius is unique among the signs. You are very original, intelligent, independent and human. Conspicuous dogs would immediately attract an Aquarius and vice versa. Dog breeds that would go with this mark include the Labrador Retriever, Lhasa Apso, Collie, Havanese, and Poodle.
Pisces: St. Bernard
The most resourceful and sensitive sign requires the most inquisitive, brightest, and friendliest dog. Whether it’s the deep affection of a Maltese or St. Bernard, or the intelligence of a Cocker Spaniel, Pisces need a dog who loves to cuddle. The love between a Pisces and his dog will be intense, as Pisces always give everything and everything that is important to them with all their hearts. But remember, while these suggested breeds for your personality can help you find your ideal canine partner, it is the individual dog that matters most. “A mix is fine,” emphasizes Shafiroff. “You don’t need a thoroughbred. Of course there are rescue groups that only deal with pure-bred animals. ”Your open and only goal? “Just adopt the dog!”
