Taurus is one of the most loyal zodiac signs so they need a dog that will return this devotion. The perfect choice is either a Boxer, English Staffy, or Great Dane. All three are incredibly loyal and great family protectors.

Geminis are known to get bored easily and will need a pet that can keep up with their craziness. So an energetic Border Collie is a perfect choice! These active creatures are easy to train, incredibly smart, and will embrace any challenge thrown their way.

The intelligent German Shepherd is also an ideal choice for Geminis as they tend to share the Gemini twin personality. German Shepherds can be incredibly affectionate but also quite aloof.

Cancers are the sensitive sweethearts of the signs and need a pet that is as good-natured and devoted to them as they are.

Greyhounds are incredibly patient, noble and loyal, just like Cancers as are sweet-tempered and chilled-out Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Even the often misunderstood and protective Rotties will be a beautiful pup for this water sign.

Another choice for Leo’s who don’t have the space for a big mastiff is the playful pug! Upbeat and excitable the pug will complement Leo’s playful personality.

Not only are huskies absolutely beautiful to look at, but they are also amazing family pets and a great mate for any Virgo in the household. Virgos are known for their hard-working attitude and huskies are classic working dogs. While they probably won’t need to pull any sleds across the ice, they will love keeping up with their owner.

Another good choice for Virgo is the fast and fearless Doberman.
