The pawsome friend that suits you best
The dog is someone’s best friend, this adage is as old as our civilization. However, not everyone is aware that dogs were the first animals domesticated by humans around 30,000 years ago. One of the most natural and popular choices for pets, it would be quite interesting to know the ideal dog breeds for all zodiac signs.
Historically speaking, humans first started feeding scraps of food to wolves as they accompanied them on their hunting expeditions. So the bond that grew strong back then has now evolved into preening and pampered puppies being pushed around in prams, often as a symbol of luxury and status.
Moreover, apart from protecting their owners, dogs have proven to be great companions adept at providing emotional support, which also helps improve our mental health. If it is established that the dog-human relationship is eternal, it would be fascinating to explore this connection from an astrological perspective.
Like people, each canine breed has a specific personality and inherent traits and with careful thought on analyzing this, one can deduce the best option in terms of which one of them would suit an individual in based on their zodiac sign.
Want to adopt a puppy but you don’t know which breed to choose? Pet astrology might be the answer to determining the best dog breeds for each zodiac sign. Judging by the location of planets, constellations, and stars, zodiacs can be paired with dog breeds as potential pets. Take a look at these suggestions for different breeds and find your twin soul in your furry friend.
