Great Pyrenees: A Great Pyrenees is a strong dog with a beautiful, thick coat. When not provoked, it is calm and well-mannered, but it may try to dominate a timid owner. This makes the dog a perfect match for Scorpios, who are usually outgoing and masterful.
Portuguese Water Dog: The water sign is known to represent the ‘dark’ side of the zodiac. As a result, Scorpios love things that are exotic or just plain different. A Portuguese Water Dog is an active and self-sufficient breed that would be comfortable around a Scorpio owner.
Boxer: Capricorns love to tackle life in the most conventional ways. They value stability, calmness and maturity. Boxers belong to a breed of strong-minded working dogs that need to be handled in an upbeat and persuasive way. Plus, their occasional stubbornness makes them a good personality match for this sign.
Dalmatian: Capricorns are often hard-headed, and can be fiercely loyal to those they love. Dalmatians are loyal, protective and playful, and would make for good companions for folks born in this sign.
Papillon: A perfect canine pairing for a Piscean would be that of a possessive Papillon. This lively, playful, yet light-footed and graceful dog would be an ideal lap cuddler for the idealistic and day-dreaming Piscean.
Pug: People born under this sign are highly sensitive and seek attention from their loved ones. Playful and childlike pugs need constant companions and will be the ideal choice for Pisceans.
Jack Russell Terrier: Aries are blessed with an active body and mind. They are also independent and dynamic by nature. A Jack Russell Terrier is an ideal pet choice as the breed is lively, independent, clever and agile, and is ideal for participating in sporting events as well.
Schnauzer: Another good pairing for an Aries would be a Schnauzer. An excellent watch dog, it is energetic and generally good-tempered, matching the inherent nature of an Aries.
Alaskan Malamute: Ruled by Saturn, Aquarians may come across as cold and unemotional to those who don’t know them. Alaskan malamutes are also skittish around new people but, once familiarized, they shower them with drool and unconditional love!
Rhodesian Ridgeback: Aquarians are deep-thinkers, which tends to make them question everything around them and develop a rebellious attitude. A Rhodesian Ridgeback is a sensitive dog with a set of expressive eyes that always seem deep in thought. Also, these dogs are not for novice owners, they are strong-willed and comparatively hard to train, a perfect match for Aquarians.
Whippet: Librans display an instinctive ability to read other people’s minds, are good listeners and, with their good communication skills, can make anyone feel better. A whippet’s friendly personality and stylish looks go very well with the Venus-ruled Libran.
Irish and English Setter: Although Librans tend to have a balanced approach toward life, they might let their urge to socialize get in the way of their responsibilities. Just like them, Irish or English Setters love to play rather than work! The two would also bond over their mutual stubbornness and lazy behaviour.
Greyhound: A typical Sagittarian is free-spirited, calm and fond of traveling and exploring new places. Greyhounds would make ideal pets as the breed is mild-mannered yet active and likes racing and hunting in wild terrains.
Border Collie: Border Collies are highly trainable dogs and depend on quite a bit of encouragement from their masters. Their temperament meshes well with the tolerant and liberal Sagittarian.
St. Bernard: People with this sign are hard-working and dependable, but may lean toward laziness if the task at hand does not have a motivating reward. A St. Bernard is a kind and steady-tempered dog that enjoys lazing around a lot. However, this bulky breed loves to play outdoors and is ideal for pulling carts and sledges.
Scottish Terrier: Taurians like to maintain a close-knit circle of family and friends rather than big social groups, as do Scottish Terriers.
Pomeranian: Cancerians are emotional beings and nurturers of a relationship. They desire dogs that are equally sensitive and loyal. A Pomeranian fits the bill perfectly. It is bred as a lap dog and demands constant cuddling and kisses.
Chihuahua: This sassy little dog needs lots of pampering and can get moody easily – just like a typical Cancerian who gets upset when ignored. Despite its small size, a Chihuahua is feisty and is extremely loyal to its owner.
Golden Retriever: Friendly and intelligent Golden Retrievers will keep a Gemini entertained. Geminis are always on the lookout for the next thing to stimulate their inquisitive minds, and a playful retriever will ensure that not a single moment is dull.
Labrador: Geminis love to make new friends and like diversity in friendship. Similarly, a Labrador is known for its sociable nature and can be trusted around children, smaller pets, elders and in any social gathering.
Rottweiler: The robust Leo demands an equally outgoing pet. The massive and muscled Rottweilers can either be gentle giants or scary beasts, depending on the owner’s personality. Just like Leos, to whom leadership comes naturally, a Rottweiler always needs something to do.
German Shepherd: Leos are ruled by the Sun, and a person born in this sign exhibits unmatched courage and devotion, as does a German Shepherd. The dog can be dominant and needs a fearless owner to balance its aggressive nature, making it apt for a Leo.
Bloodhounds: People belonging to this Earth sign tend to be inquisitive, logical and easygoing, so a dog that is intelligent and independent suits them the most. Bloodhounds show such traits and love sniffing out a story. No wonder they are used by police and law enforcement.
Beagle: The friendly, peaceful and easy-to-groom beagle would make a wonderful pet for the independent and pragmatic Virgo.
