Border Collies are similar to Aries-born people as they share their determination and work-ethic. The Border Collie is known to be a bit of a workaholic, and like you, enjoy a good challenge. Both of you excel in sports and would rather go on an adventure than sit on the couch on a nice day.

Since both of you are energetic, you’re always ready to handle any task you’re presented with. Aries is the most active sign, so a dog who can keep up with you is what you’re looking for. Get ready for a lot of playing, daily walks, daily jogs, and a lifetime of fun.

Taurus (April 20- May 20)

The dog breed who matches best with Taurus is no surprise. It’s the Afghan Hound.

Afghan Hounds are one of the most beautiful breeds, and the Taurus is known to have a great appreciation for beauty. And, a keen eye for beauty no one else sees.

Like Taurus, Afghan Hounds are incredibly loyal companions. But, also like Taurus, they take time to build trust with new people. Luckily, the Taurus is patient and puts his heart into everything he has his mind on. You’re able to build trust with one another and sniff out who else should gain your trust together.

Gemini (May 21- June 20)

The Labrador Retriever is the best fit for a Gemini. What to know why? Just think about it for a moment. What is the Labrador Retriever known for?

Immediately, many people would say family. And, for good reason. Like a Gemini, nothing can replace the love of a wonderful family. Unlike some other breeds, the Labrador Retriever doesn’t only bond to one family member but rather bonds with her entire household. She may choose one person she is slightly more fond of, but she gives a piece of her heart to everyone she loves.

A Gemini is known to be a big talker. They’re very social. Labs are known for the same social demeanor. Labs are easy-going, people-loving, and enjoy the company of literally everyone.

You’re both down for an adventure and you’re always ‘go-with-the-flow.’

Cancer (June 21- July 22)

A Cancer-born person is known for loyalty. That’s their most adoring quality. That’s why Rottweilers are their best match. Since they are so loyal and have so much love for their family, Rottweilers are great protectors of their households. They will protect you at all costs. Let’s hope no one tries to mess with your family or break into your home; they will have a strong-willed team to deal with.

Although they may not be overly confident and trusting of ‘strangers,’ Rotties are excellent family companions who form deep connections to their closest people whether family or friend. And, someone new can come into the picture of your life, but time must be provided to gain their trust.

Leo (July 23- August 22)

Leo is known for being king of the jungle. They are natural born leaders and many often take their advice and follow their direction. That’s why their best match is the Chow Chow. With his lion-like appearance, he displays great confidence. He’s prepared to take on any challenge at any minute.

Don’t let his pride fool you, the Chow-Chow is not selfish and he’s always proud of his family. He will gladly show off what he loves at every opportunity.

Virgo (August 23- September 22)

Virgo is inspired by beauty. There’s no surprise here. Their best fit is the Briard. With her beautiful gait and well-kept coat she is mesmerizing.

Briards are known to be among the most intelligent of the herding breeds, which matches the witty, problem-solving Virgo. Both of you can be shy with new people. But, you’re incredibly loyal to those you love.

Libra (September 23- October 22)

Libras absolutely adore having company. The Pomeranian is their perfect match. The Pommie’s favorite thing to do is spend time with her person. It doesn’t matter what you’re doing, she’s ready as long as she’s with you.

Not only does she enjoy spending time with you, she also enjoys spending time with your friends and family. Both of you are highly social, loyal, and relatively easy-going. The Pomeranian is easy-to-train and intelligent.

Scorpio (October 23- November 21)

Scorpios are intense. They’re full throttle. The Schipperke is the dog breed who matches your level of intensity. There’s never a dull moment with either of you between your curious personalities and your love for mystery.

Just like Scorpio, the Shipperke can be difficult to connect with, but assertive and passionate Scorpios are able to take on even the most difficult situation.

Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)

Sagittarius has an extreme amount of energy. You’re known for your endless enthusiasm and adventurous, fun-loving personality. That’s why your best match is the Airedale Terrier. You both enjoy being outside and would much rather be on a hike than watching television.

The Airedale is known to be ‘the happy-go-lucky’ breed. With their friendly personality, they enjoy meeting people from all different walks of life and accept people exactly as they are.

Capricorn (December 22- January 19)

Capricorns are known for their self-control and discipline. They’re extremely intelligent, territorial, and protective over who and what they love. That’s why their match is the Giant Schnauzer.

Giant Schnauzers take life just as seriously as the Capricorn. And, their loyalty to their ‘person’ makes them an excellent choice for a guard dog.

Aquarius (January 20- February 18)

An Aquarius is one-of-a-kind. They’re original. You won’t find anyone like them. Their best fit is the Bergamasco. If you haven’t heard of this breed, the reason is exactly what you read. They’re one-of-a-kind dogs and you’ll have a hard time trying to find any other who matches their uniqueness.

Just like you, the Aquarius, a Bergamasco Sheepdog is a natural born problem-solver. They don’t prefer to be told what to do and can become frustrated without mental stimulation.

Both of you have a special relationship with friends and family but may take time to build a relationship with someone.

Pisces (February 19- March 20)

Pisces are known for their selfless, loving nature. The Pisces has an incredible willingness to help others. They will do anything they can to help out a friend or family member.

The best dog match for Pisces is the Saint Bernard. Saint Bernard were originally bred hundreds of years ago to rescue lost travelers. And, they’re still known for their efforts in search-and-rescue.

The Saint Bernard can get up to 180 pounds, but they’re known to be the gentle giant. You’ll never find a love like theirs.

This Is The New Year’s Resolution For You Based On Your Zodiac Sign

The new year is the perfect time to set goals, make changes, and have a fresh start, but it can also be hard to figure out where to begin. Plus, 2021 isn’t just any new year – I mean take a look back at 2020, we have so much to turn the page from.

Well, one helpful place to start is to look to the stars. Based on their characteristics, every Zodiac sign has a potential goal they can work toward in 2021, despite whatever obstacles may be coming their way. Keep reading to find out about your sign’s resolutions, and cheers to a new year!

ARIES

aries

As one of the most restless signs, Aries are enthusiastic and can have a hard time sitting still. Lean into that need for stimulation and make a goal this year to find a new hobby — maybe playing a sport or learning an instrument — and see it all the way through to perfecting it. With Aries impatience, this may be difficult, but it’ll be worth the satisfaction when you accomplish it.

TAURUS

taurus

While you’re extremely strong and committed, this often can lead to stubbornness. In 2021, pick your battles. While your passion is admirable, sometimes compromise is necessary. Alleviate some stress by figuring out what is worth fighting for and what could be easily settled with mutual understanding.

GEMINI

gemini

A Gemini is known to be passionate but indecisive, and you tend to divide your focus among the variety of tasks you want to accomplish. This year, go easy on yourself! There’s no need to take on too many projects at once and get overwhelmed. Harness that passion towards something you really want, and work on that first.

CANCER

cancer

People often rely on their Cancer friends for help with a problem since Cancers are incredibly empathetic. In 2021, don’t be afraid to ask for help yourself. It’s great that you love being there for others, but let others be there for you too every once in a while.

LEO

leo

Leos have amazing confidence and bring a powerful presence to any room. In the new year, use that Leo energy toward a cause you feel passionate about. Plus, after the debacle of 2020, it would be a great time to get involved in your community and use your strong voice to make a change you’d like to see.

VIRGO

virgo

Virgos are incredibly organized and responsible, which are wonderful traits to have. But in 2021, in between scheduling and making to-do lists, remember to set aside at least a little bit of time each day to relax. It might be a challenge, but try not to sweat the small stuff, and instead put that energy toward some well-deserved self-care.

LIBRA

libra

As a Libra, you’re constantly seeking balance, but you hate change and are prone to analysis paralysis. To help with that Libran indecision, get into the habit of making pros and cons lists. It’s a great way to put your natural skills in logic to good use, and can help you feel more confident about your choices.

SCORPIO

scorpio

As one of the most emotional signs, you can sometimes let your feelings get the best of you in the forms of jealousy and secrecy. In the new year, make sure your friends and family know that you care about them. Whether it’s a trip, a gift, or quality time, go out of your way to show your loved ones how much they mean to you.

SAGITTARIUS

sagitarious

Being the most adventurous sign, a Sagittarius longs for freedom and exploration. Feed that restlessness by taking a trip this year to somewhere you’ve never been. Maybe it’s somewhere on another continent, or maybe it’s just the next town over, but find a place you’ve always wanted to check out to satisfy your constant wanderlust.

CAPRICORN

capricorn

Capricorns are disciplined and responsible, which makes you among the most reliable signs. In 2021, feel free to try something spontaneous! The best memories can be made from something unplanned, which might sound crazy to you. But if the opportunity to seize the moment presents itself, take it and you won’t regret it.

AQUARIUS

New Year’s Resolution

While you love helping others, you rarely express your own emotions. This year, try to open up a little by keeping a journal. Jotting down some thoughts from time to time could be cathartic for the feelings you tend to keep to yourself, and might be the first step in having an easier time relaying your emotions to others.

PISCES

New Year’s Resolution

The last New Year’s Resolution is for Pisces, They are among the most artistic signs. Is there an art project you’ve always dreamed of working on — maybe a painting, a short film, or an album? Make 2021 the year you make that dream a reality. You can tend to have your head in the clouds, but why not bring your fantasies to life through your art?

What do you think? Do you already have your resolutions all figured out for 2021?

Uplifting News: Mexican Man Used His Home to Shelter 300 Dogs From Hurricane Delta

In some uplifting news, a Mexican man has gone viral for housing stray dogs in need of shelter before Hurricane Delta hit the Yucatan peninsula in early October. Ricardo Pimentel of Cancun, Mexico, wrote on Facebook that he had boarded up his home’s windows and was currently housing 300 rescue dogs before the storm hit.

As background, Hurricane Delta touched down in Cozumel and Cancun and was reported to have winds up to 110 mph. The storm caused power outages, fallen trees, and the destruction of buildings and businesses. Luckily, Pimentel decided to get creative when it came to protecting his helpless four-legged friends from the ravages of the outdoors.

Pimentel already owns an animal sanctuary called Tierra de Animales, but he decided to open up his home to the homeless dogs. Naturally, he need all the help he could get to take care of the canine creatures. He took to his Facebook page to ask for donations.

“If I lived alone or nothing else with about 10 or 20 dogs, I would not worry much,” wrote Pimentel on his Facebook page. “But here are hundreds of animals and we can not afford to not have enough food stored.” According to Pimentel, he was worried about there being food shortages at the grocery stores in the aftermath of the unpredictable storm.

The post was accompanied by a a jaw-dropping photo of Pimentel surrounded by a sea of dogs packed into his home. The call-to-action quickly took off and Pimentel was soon receiving thousands of dollars in donations.

At first, Pimentel was distracted by the storm and wasn’t initially aware of how deeply he touched people. When he finally saw how people had rallied to support him and his sanctuary, he was humbled.

“Your support at this time has been invaluable, we deeply appreciate all your messages, calls, and shows of affection,” he wrote on Facebook. “Thank you on behalf of all the animals in the sanctuary!”

According to Pimentel, many of the dogs he’s rescued on his sanctuary have been saved from dog-fighting rings and abusive homes where they’ve been badly beaten. He founded Tierra de Animales around 20 years ago as a place where dogs and other animals (including cats, bunnies, and sheep) can be safe and live a good life.

He says that his animals have been adopted by homes in Mexico, Canada and the United States. He hopes that the attention that the rescue dogs got from his viral post will encourage people to adopt them.

“We would like to think that thanks to all this attention, somebody would like to be part of the story and say: ‘I adopted a dog saved from that famous Hurricane Delta,” he told The Associated Press.
