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.

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)

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.
