When you’re searching for a dog to adopt, how do you choose? Of course, you’re searching for a dog who matches your personality and lifestyle to bring home. Are you more of a movie-buff or a nature lover? Do you enjoy lounging on the couch after work or going on an adventure? Breed selector quizzes are a great place to gain information, but did you know there’s another factor that can be taken into consideration?

If you’re someone who believes in horoscopes and the zodiac, this article is a must-read. And, even if you aren’t, it’s definitely worth taking a look. You may connect in a way you didn’t think possible and find exactly what you’ve been searching for.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

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.
