Breed Tips

Dog Breeds Most Compatible with Your Zodiac Sign

When did we start associating our star signs with our beloved canine companions? We knew that as civilizations flourished and astrology became a guiding force in understanding human nature, people began pondering how the stars might influence their destinies. But does the cosmos even tell us whether a tall dog will be better for us or a small one with a curvy tail and brown coat? 

Maybe yes, maybe not. But if we were to conduct this exercise, we could surely find a lot of similarities between star signs and our doggies. Every dog breed has its unique nature, temperament, energy levels, etc. and so do people with different star signs. The stereotypes associated with each star sign may not be scientifically proven yet but we are talking about a subject of faith, so why not just go ahead? (Funnily, most of the time, our horoscopes do end up speaking the truth about us)

So, let’s begin the match-making! 

Which Dog Breed is Most Compatible with Aries?

Jack Russell Terriers Dogs

Full of passion, always seeking action, high levels of energy, fiery and fearless – that’s how people usually find Aries to be. A dog breed that looks like the perfect fit here to match their levels of energy and curiosity is – the Irish Setter. Even Jack Russell Terrier would not be a bad option here.

Which Dog Should a Libra Get?

Standard Greyhound

A Libra should get a breed that’s smart, friendly and easy-going but comes with an element of elegance and grace. A breed that comes to mind here is the Poodle. It is an intelligent breed that comes with distinct looks that come with lovely curls – the element of elegance. Both, Libras and Poodles, won’t mind uploading a hell lot of selfies on the gram. They could also go for the Bichon Frise, Greyhound or King Charles Spaniel. 

What Dog Breed is Best for Capricorn?

Capricorns are known to be hard-working, sensitive, honest and like things to be in control. The Bernese Mountain Dog seems like a good choice here.
