Which kind of Zodiac Dog are you?
Dignified and principled, this confident canine is what the Tibetan’s call the “Iron Dog”- rightly so as this formidable character has an unbendable will and unquestionable loyalty. When decided on a cause he deems worthy, he faithfully pursues it with boldness and conviction, highly critical and on the lookout for any foul play or unfairness – things he despises with a passion. He has a tough mental-discipline, and when faced with obstacles, is able to exhibit a ruthlessness to obliterate anything that stands in his way.
The element of Water has a calming effect on this intuitive Dog, creating a calmer, easy going and liberal character. Less forthright and disciplined than her fellow canines, she tends to over-indulge herself and her loved ones, and would benefit from exhibiting a little more control in her finances as well. She does have a persuasive and attractive way about her however, and will be renowned for her fair judgment and striking beauty.
A country Gent (or Lady) at heart, this refined and honest Dog is happiest when surrounded by the gentle beauty of nature, and his home will often be decorated with beautiful things – comfortable and always welcoming. Warm-hearted, hard working and always seeking to improve himself, he is talented at communicating with people of all walks of life, using his common sense and sincerity to see him through.
This magnetic and drop-dead attractive Dog is the life of a party, immensely popular and idealistic. Not one to pass on a new adventure, he will rebel when hindered or attacked, and unhesitatingly carry out any threats he makes. Courageous and expressive, this go-getter Dog has high ideals and the tenacity to forge a successful career, but would benefit from seeking the advice of an older mentor. Luckily, the Dog within him still manages to keep him humble and grounded despite his numerous achievements.
The Earth Dog
Dignified, slow-moving and methodical, this realistic Dog is a man of integrity. He speaks straight from his heart with astounding sincerity, and is sought after for his sensible, honest and fair counsel. Talented and astute with his finances, this moral Dog will go far in his career, never letting defeat or glory go to his head. He can be stubborn though, and demand that others exhibit the same dedication and principled attitudes he loyally lives by.
