The perfect dog for each zodiac sign according to Dog Heroes What the stars are telling us about our pet friends

Getting to know the personality of your pet friend is always an interesting discovery. The personality of a dog usually depends on a mix of factors: first of all the breed, that can determine some sides of the personality. Secondly, the environment in which the dog grew up and the one in which he/she will fit: if it is particularly stimulating and suitable for the dog, he/she will be able to bring out unknown aspects of the puppy.
Last but not least, how couldn't we mention the magic world of astrology? The stars can give us some fun and carefree ideas to better understand the personality of our pet.

Obviously it is not always possible to know the exact day of birth of our pet friend, indeed in some cases it is basically impossible. But we hope that this special horoscope can make you wonder about your dog's zodiac sign by reading the descriptions of each sign.

Scorpio is a water sign ruled by Pluto, a planet of darkness and mystery. It is a very intuitive dog, which knows how to exert its influence on other dogs and people. It has a tendency to prevail over other dogs, and it is not a dog suitable for everyone: not because it is aggressive or particularly difficult, but because due to its temperament, it will be he who will choose its owner and not vice versa. There will be people who will love madly and others, perhaps even members of the same family, who will not stand. He can't do without the company of the people he immediately gets in tune with, but he also loves having moments of solitude.

Their way of communicating love towards you will surely be by jumping into your arms and licking your face without any intention of stopping. Funny, exuberant, affectionate and loyal. The Sagittarius dog will be an inseparable life partner for you, always by your side in every situation. The best gift you can give him, in addition to an endless daily dose of pampering, is to give him a puppy as a little brother (or sister) of the house.

It is useless to try to impose yourself, here it takes a lot of patience and, in the most extreme cases, the help of a professional trainer. He is an independent dog and can be cold and aloof at times. This, however, does not mean that he does not care for his master, but expresses love in his own way.
