People have turned to astrology for centuries seeking answers about life’s biggest questions—and is there any bigger question than “What dog should I get?” (Answer: No.)
At first, you wouldn’t think it would be so hard to decide what kind of dog breed to adopt...but it is. You should just be able to walk into your local animal shelter and see which pup speaks to you. But if you’re anything like us, that's problematic, because literally all the dogs speak to us. So while you’re whittling down your list of future BFFs, we're here to provide further clarification. Since you can't adopt 40 dogs (at least not yet), we're here to tell you your perfect pup according to your astrological sign.
Aries (March 21-April 19) – German Shepherd
The only dog that can live up to Aries’ high expectations is the German shepherd. Both share the traits of boldness and devotion; there is no more devoted guard dog than a German shepherd; and both Aries and German shepherds are always up for an athletic adventure.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) – Corgi
A Taurus and a corgi are a match made in the heavens. Earthly Taurus is a lover of the finer things in life. They're appreciative of beauty and they're very sensual—so the beautiful and floofy corgi is perfect for the tactile Taurus to pet while lying on a couch of velvet.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) – Jack Russell Terrier
The versatile Gemini’s perfect dog match is the intelligent Jack Russell terrier. Jack Russell terriers are known to be funny, stubborn, and energetic—and that's exactly what the very adaptable and easily bored Gemini needs to keep them on their toes.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) – Pug
Cancer is known for being sensitive and very tuned-in to matters of the home—and no dog enjoys a comfy home more than a pug. This pairing is social, caring, and above all, loves being at home to spend time together with friends and family members.
Leo (July 23-August 22) - Labrador Retriever
Everybody loves an affable Leo just like everyone loves their perfect companion, the lab. They are both loving, protective, and relish being the center of attention—be it strangers complimenting their gorgeous dog or a group of children gathered around to pet their glossy coats, respectively.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) – Border Collie
Perfectionist Virgo will have spent a significant amount of time analyzing which dog is the perfect dog and they're sure to come to the conclusion of "border collie." Reserved and modest Virgos are drawn to this breed for its obedience and work ethic. You will never find an understated Virgo pushing a dog in a doggie stroller, that is for sure.
Libra (September 23-October 22) – Pit Bull
Libra is all about balance which makes the pit bull the ideal Libra pet. Gentle, even-tempered pits—who also have a fiercely protective side—mirror both elements of the scales' personality. Libras are generally not opinioned unless it’s over a cause they're passionate about, which makes them perfect advocates for this unfairly maligned breed.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) – Schipperke
Schipperkes have big and bold personalities, which matches perfectly with Scorpio’s personal brand. Despite their small stature, the feisty and headstrong Schipperke is a formidable companion to a passionate Scorpio owner. Sometimes called the Tasmanian Black Devil, Schipperkes share an intense emotional energy with Scorpios.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) – Beagle
High-energy Sagittarius loves a mental challenge, and clever and determined beagles definitely provide puzzles for them to solve. Just as beagles will figure out how to press the pedal on the trashcan with a paw to facilitate snacking, Sagittarius will find new and inventive ways to keep that from happening. When not battling over food scraps, the active twosome will also enjoy exploring together.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) – Golden Retriever
Practical Capricorn is known for being a great companion and lifelong friend, so it’s no wonder they would be matched with the golden retriever. Capricorns are lovers of structure and order, and the trustworthy and reliable golden retriever never lets them down.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) – Brussels Griffon
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius and Brussels Griffon pairing. Both are known for being alert, sensitive and attuned to those around them. The companionable Griffon will always be there for the eclectic Aquarius, who appreciates the dog’s unique look.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20) – Chihuahua
There is a duality to Pisces just like there is with their ideal dog breed, Chihuahua. With their courageous personality despite their small size, Chihuahuas fit into the unique and social lifestyle of the Pisces. Pisces are sometimes secretive, which means they are very likely to smuggle their pups into a movie theater inside their bag.
