Gemini: Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Affectionate, curious, adaptable — these are adjectives generally used to describe the youthful looking breed. With an ability to learn quickly and ideate, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel prefers company over solitude — and is almost always likeable, Gemini stylez.
The darker side of the Gemini/Cavalier King Charles SpanielBecause of their dualistic personalities, Geminis can sometimes face criticisms. The Gemini/Cavalier King Charles Spaniel can be nervous, inconsistent and indecisive — but the cute and friendly really help make up for it.

Playful Boxers, like Cancers, are loyal dogs who are known to form close bonds with families. The natural nurturing personality also means that these pups will also be more emotional and sympathetic than other breeds.
The darker side of the Cancer/BoxerBeing emotional means you can be very empathetic — but it also means you can susceptible of being moody, manipulative and insecure. But at the end of the day, the Cancer/Boxer is naturally protective of their fam and they’ll always have your back.

Leo: French Bulldog
Never shying away from the spotlight, French Bulldogs are popular companion dogs who love to be the center of attention — how Leo of them! They’re social but calm — known for being warm, cheerful and are so good at the funny.
The darker side of Leo/French BulldogThese Leo/French Bulldogs certainly do not take well to being ignored — they’re also not super into facing difficult realities and sometimes have the expectation they should be treated like royalty.
6 / 12
Virgo: Labrador Retriever
Family friendly, outgoing, adventurous and adorable — Labs are the perfect canine for the home and hardworking service dogs. Known for their loyalty and kindness, like human Virgos, they are a well-rounded popular breed known for their love of animals, nature and being a usually-good doggo.
The darker side of Virgo/Labrador RetrieverBecause this pack can be all work and no play — Virgo/Labradors can have a tough time asking for help. They don’t love taking center stage and can sometimes come across shy. They can be a lil judgey too.

Cooperative, diplomatic, all kinds of fair and always social, Beagles, like Libras, live for harmony, sharing with others and the outdoors. Family-friendly and thriving in a variety of social settings, they’re enjoyed by most folks.
The darker side of Libra/BeagleThese ridiculously cute Libra/Beagles are adorable — but they can also be indecisive, confrontation-adversed and are capable of holding a grudge. They may wallow in self-pity (with their ears pulled back and their tails pinned down low).
8 / 12
Scorpio: German Shepherd
These classically gorgeous dogs are known to be fearless, resourceful and passionate — taking on classic Scorpio traits. They’re great leaders and keepers of secrets. While they are brave and come across noble, they are secretly mushy and emotional on the insides (just never tell a Scorpio you know that about them).
The darker side of Scorpio/German ShepherdThough the Scorpio/German Shepherd may be attractive as heck — they’re not always quick to trust and can be secretive and sometimes even violent when provoked. They can be jealous and not always great at processing their feelings (which they secretly have a lot of).
9 / 12
Fit for a royal — Corgis are generous, idealistic and have a great sense of humour. They’re bright lil pups who always have their human’s back. Like a classic Sadge, Corgis enjoy freedom, sniffing out new ground and philosophy.
The darker side of Sagittarius/CorgiSo cute, so stubborn. The Sadge/Corgi can have a tendency to make promises they may not always fulfill, exercise impatience and say/do what they want (no matter how undiplomatic). They don’t do well with feeling trapped.
10 / 12
Responsible, disciplined, hard working Rottweilers are just so Capricorn. The breed is known for gentleness and bravery — they are sometimes part of search and rescue missions. They like family, tradition, music and good quality products. Only the finest chew toys for this pup.
The darker side of Capricorn/RottweilerSometimes coming off as know-it-alls, Capricorn/Rottweilers can be condescending pessimists. They can have a tendency to be a bit negative and hold on tight to a grudge.
11 / 12
Progressive, original and very independent, Greyhounds are a hit with friends — but value their alone time. They are an intellectual breed — fueled less on emotion and more on facts — they’re often fighting for a cause. This very gentle dog also makes for a great listener.
The darker side of Aquarius/GreyhoundThe Aquarius/Greyhound does not enjoy limitations or broken promises — they can be temperamental and uncompromising as they don’t love when people disagree with them. But good news: they’re never boring.
12 / 12
Emotionally needy and physically lazy, Pomeranians are the perfect breed to empathize with you and help you feel whole again. They’re compassionate, creative, intuitive and surprisingly wise. They’re big into the witchy and love love (and probably you).
The darker side of Pisces/PomeranianOk but while these fluffy creatures may be all about dreams and magic, they’re also fearful, overly trusting (borderline gullible) and live to escape reality. They’re feelings are forever fragile and they too often fall into victim roles.
