Prospective dog owners take lots of factors into account before deciding on a dog breed. Important considerations include the size of the dog, the size of your home, whether or not you have kids and how much exercise the pooch will need. But besides all the practical stuff, sometimes it’s simply a case of going with your gut instinct. You might go to the rescue shelter planning to adopt a lapdog and end up falling in love with a Great Dane. Or swear that you’d “never” have a particular breed of dog, then end up being won over as soon as you meet one. Or you could consult your horoscope sign. We use astrology to find compatible romantic partners, so why not do the same for our canine companions? Here are the best dog breeds for all 12 horoscope signs, from determined Aries to empathetic Pisces.
