Like people, dogs all have unique personalities — just think of how your dog gives you a big smile when you whip out his favorite treat . . . or an eye-roll when you insist on one more selfie. But certain breeds are known for specific traits, whether it be loyalty, intelligence, or energy. In fact, so many of these qualities mirror exactly the personality traits detailed in your zodiac sign. (I’m familiar with this, as a Gemini-Taurus cusp myself.) So, yeah, what we’re saying is you can totally figure out what dog breed you are based on your zodiac sign! Just don’t blame us if it isn’t the breed you’d like — it’s written in the stars, after all.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Like a German shepherd, Capricorns tend to be well-disciplined and responsible. Capricorns are said to be good managers, much like German shepherds, who make great working dogs because of their obedience and intelligence.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Much like English bulldogs, people with the Earth sign Taurus are known for being stubborn and craving continuity. However, both bulldogs and Taurus are devoted and reliable — and love a good snuggle.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Cancer, a water sign, is known for being tenacious, much like the hardy Lhasa apso, which originally hails from the Himalayas. They’re also elegant, loyal, and very persuasive (especially when it comes to walks or treats)!
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Great Danes, like Virgos, are known for being truly sweet — which is why they’re known as gentle giants. Also like Virgos, these powerful dogs are friendly and hardworking, with boundless patience and loyalty.
