What your Dog’s B’day says about their Personality

Anyone who has ever spent a good chunk of their life with a dog will tell you that their little floofer has a unique human-like personality. This comes with their own tastes, habits, likes & dislikes, “pet” peeves, style of walking or barking, and other quirks that make the animal instantly recognizable to the pet parent.

So we consulted our friend, Mrs. Braganza, an astrologer and tarot reader, to see if the stars play any role in these personalities, and here are some predictions she shared with us. Even if you don’t believe in the Zodiac, it’s always fun to see which predicted traits match with your doggo’s behavior, or how closely they resemble you.

We’ve seen “pet ‘n’ owner” pairs of Leos strutting down malls with fancy suits, and been close witnesses to a Pieces pair chilling in the bedroom for an entire day … so we deduce that there may be some truth in Mrs. Braganza’s words after all!

On that note, here’s a rundown of some common purr-sonality traits & quirks you’ll notice in animals for each sign of the Zodiac. Check your dog or cat’s birthday before diving in so you know which group they belong to!

Do let us know whether we got the predictions right, or whether the traits are completely opposite in your case!

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20): Life of the Party

If you spot a puppy going up to everyone in the park for free boops and kisses, it’s probably a hyper-active Aries. These guys (and girls) are filled with enthusiasm and love to move around in the spirit of discovering new places, things, or people.

They like action, and by default, need space to stretch their metaphorical wings, so pet owners be warned: if you’re adopting an Aries pooch, do confirm that your condo has a lot of open ground for them to play and zoom.

Although the enthusiasm can be fun most times, it can make training a bit difficult because the attention span seems to be proportionately low. But all said and done, if your goal is to stay active or engaged, an Aries doggo will ensure the same all year round!

Taurus (Apr 21 – May 20): Ultimate Comfort Seekers

If the Arien is the fun seeker, their Taurean sibling is the exact opposite, taking solace in the finer things in life such as rest, relaxation, and earthly pleasures.

Taurus dogs/cats like to follow routines and don’t appreciate changes in plans, so don’t go making drastic swings in their walking or eating schedules, or you’ll have to bear the brunt of their ire.

On the positive side, these comfort divas are perfect for introverts and home bees, even more so in a remote work era, because they keep you silent company without intruding on your personal space. This perfect balance of distance and warmth makes them the perfect companions.

Now if only our human partners could master that art…

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20): Witty Einsteins

Domestic animals are generally smart creatures, but those bearing the Gemini twins take that one notch further. These pups are a treat to train because they can pick up commands, smells, and information very quickly.

They love digging around, playing with toys, and making new friends. If anything, they’re expert social butterflies like the Leos we’ll meet very soon.

A caveat, though, Geminis can also feel a bit reserved or uncaring at times, we dare say like cats, but that’s only because they’re selective about where they expend their energy (and sacred knowledge). So the quality company is something they expect/prioritize when it comes to long-term relationships with their owners.

If you think you’re worthy enough, then that self-confidence is all it would take to win over a Gemini pooch or catto, so choose accordingly.

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 20): Family Lovers

Crustaceans are all about family life. They’re highly protective (and at times, possessive) in nature. So if you have an infant or kids, then a Cancer pup will inevitably take up the role of the babysitter.

This is also the dog who’ll immediately climb and curl up by your bedside if you ever fall sick. We mean it when we say: these guys love to stick with you through thick and thin.

But with all that love, Cancers naturally face seperation anxiety, so make sure you’re giving them enough attention, with constant assurances that someone will always be around.

Leo (Jul 21 – Aug 20): Royal Highness

Ah, we’ve arrived at the royal palace. Leos are the epitome of luxury or high culture. They possess traits like being generous (to a fault), dressing up in splendid colours, and stealing the show wherever they go.

Leo dogs love to greet new guests, put up a nice performance, and get rewarded in pats or treats. You can spot one easily from their fashionable way of walking, almost as if they’re wearing a robe.

Of course, getting to live with royalty comes at a cost. They will need a lot of pampering, royal treatment, and oodles of appreciation, so be prepared to serve at a word’s notice because these are high maintanence beings.

Although being social and adventurous comes naturally to these dogs, they also need to compensate it with alone time, so once they signal that they’re done playing, take it as the final word, and just let them cozy up in their personal space. It’s hard being King/Queen, you know…

Virgo (Aug 21 – Sep 20): Wise Old Souls

Virgos are clealiness freaks, so don’t take it personally if they refuse to join you in the mud because it’ll get their shiny-licked paws dirty. On the bright side, this is one sign that’ll actually love to take a bath, so feel free to invite them into the tub once every fortnight.

Virgos tend to shine brightly when they have some responsibilities, so consider taking them to orphanages, old age homes, or other shelters where they can do some good by bringing joy to hoomans or other dogs in distress.

If you’ve known a Virgo personally, you’ll know that they’re wise, old creatures like the Owl in kids’ storybooks, so if you’re feeling lost, cuddle up to to a Virgo dog, and you might be blessed with a few creative ideas to resolve the problem.

Libra (Sep 21 – Oct 20): Committed Daters

Libras are represented by the scales, so they like a perfect balance of everything in life: a bit of fun, lots of rest, and some responsibilities on the side, too. For the dog owners, this means that you’ll have no trouble switching up the schedules every now and then – in fact, we would highly recommend it, as change is something these dogs like in moderation.

Libras are also good at building intimate one-on-one relationships, and they prefer it to social or outdoorsy interactions with the crowd, so if you get them another furry companion (either a dog or a kitty cat), it should keep them plenty busy even when you’re away.

Lastly, when it comes to snuggling, they love the close attention, so expect to receive in back in multiples, and be prepared for some intense licking sessions, too!

Scorpio (Oct 21 – Nov 20): Territorial Pups

Scorpions are the most mysterious & secretive sign of the zodiac. So don’t be surprised if your bud seeks out hiding spots, or goes digging to bury items that they believe to be valuable or interesting.

Their watchful nature makes them great guard dogs, and they’re extremely protective of their original owners, so the unflinching loyalty is a special trait to die for.

Sure, their snugly side makes for some good company for single homedwellers, but you should also be careful not to pet other animals in front of them because this can easily trigger jealousy.

Scorpions also tend to take a lot of things personally, and have a tendency for revenge, so if you tease or mess around with them, it won’t be too long until they bark back or throw a fit by chewing/tearing something up.

When moody, they like to retreat into their private space to blow things off, so consider getting a crate, dog bed, or any other cozy furniture item that can help the animal hunker down for the better part of the day.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 20): Explorers at Heart

If you dream of trekking, bicycling, or travelling the word with a furry companion, call on a Sagi! These are the most avid explorers of the lot, and they will make every trip one to remember for a lifetime.

Change in routine is something they thrive on, so you won’t have to worry about how they’ll react to new farmhouses, valleys, or campsites that you’ve chosen for your next adventure. As long as they’re not packed inside crates (no dog should be, as far as possible), and are cozily travelling with you in a car or train, they’ll be happy to tag along.

Besides personal freedom and the joy of discovering new places, Saggitarians also have a knack for making their humans happy, so they’ll happily repeat any tricks or shenanigans if they see you responding with laughter or smiles.

Overall very energetic dogs who are great performers in front of large groups. In fact, the more the merrier for them, so try involving them to your parties or social outings, and watch them work their magic anywhere, anytime!

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 20): Natural-born Leaders

Dogs are pack animals by default, given their shared lineage with wolves. And the Capricorns in the group are often seen taking up the leadership role because of their decisive & ambitious temperament.

One would fear that this makes Capri pups prone to aggresiveness, too, but you’ll find them surprisingly calm and balanced, which is probably why they’re able to win over both humans and other animals in their company.

Cappies are also very dependable, and thrive when given a mission to fulfill, so keep them engaged by setting routines like bringing you the newspaper from the doorstep, or your drinks from the refridgerator. A feeling of accomplishment is what they crave, so make sure you have small treats ready to share.

Aquarius (Jan 21 – Feb 20): Imaginative & quirky

Aquarians are quite the imaginative bunch who often get lost in their own worlds, so if your Fido is born under this sign, you’ll notice them randomly daydreaming in their own zone, thinking about chasing squirrels, languishing in a castle made of peanut butter, and other fancy destinations in their head…

Aquarius dogs also possess an unpredictable side, which will keep you guessing about what havoc they’ll create in the house next.

That isn’t to say that they can properly socialize when the time calls for it. If anything, they love to help and make very dependable friends who will rush for you anytime you call them.

But they often fall short of being practically useful, no thanks to their clumsiness & kiddish nature. We aren’t complaining though because it’s very entertaining to watch. So don’t break a sweat, buddy, we love you just the way you are!

Pisces (Feb 21 – Mar 20): Quite little cuties

Pisces are ruled by the two fishes, which are delicate in nature but very loving in every relationship. They’re not the strongest or bravest of the bunch, and depend on their humans more for protection or comfort in times of stress.

In training, they can get anxious or sad quickly if you scold them, so take it easy because these guys require a lot of patience and commitment. Rest assured, once they realize where they’re going wrong, they won’t make the same mistake again.

Don’t write them off just because of their their soft and timid exterior, though. They can be unexpectedly great friends when you need someone with lots of empathy & capacity for emotional healing. Want to have a good cry? A Pisces will be happy to give you a hug! They’re professional therapists 😉

Of course, keep in mind that this post was just for entertainment purposes, and every dog is capable of giving you the same kind of love, regardless of their Sun Sign, age, or breed.

So always go for an adoption at your local shelters, because there are many animals waiting for you to give them an opportunity. Please don’t shop, don’t buy, don’t trade with your friends, and choose to become a responsible pet parent by opening up your heart to a stray.
