Do You and Your Dog’s Zodiac Signs Mesh Well Together?

by Sundays

We all know you’d still love them anyway, but here’s some insight on how your dog’s zodiac sign meshes with yours.

Have you ever referred to your dog as your significant other or taken them somewhere as your plus one? If there was a dog and person matchmaking app, you know you would have swiped right for your pup, because you were just meant to be.

But what if their zodiac sign was the worst possible match for yours? It’s not something they use on dog adoption forms (yet…) to see if you’ll vibe with them. We all know you’d still love them anyway, but here’s some insight on how your dog’s zodiac sign meshes with yours.

Do Dogs Have Zodiac Signs?

Before we dive into the perfect pairs, you may be wondering if dogs even have a zodiac sign. Well, our answer to that is: of course! If your dog has a birthday then they have a zodiac sign. And if you are unsure of their birthday, a guess will do too. You can come up with a range and read both signs and see which attributes best match your pup. 

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Element: Fire
Symbol: Ram
Greek Divinity: Ares (God of War)


You are very determined, and some might call you bossy, but that’s because you have goals and you are a motivated natural leader. You’re passionate, cheerful, and bold, and you never back down from a challenge. You do, however, enjoy a simple plan that doesn’t get lost in the details.

Your best fur buddies are Sagittarius and Leo. Fire signs unite! Your fellow fire signs, Sagittarius and Leo, are great matches. When you’re with your pup, the sparks really fly, and you can’t wait to set out on bold, new adventures together. A Chihuahua Leo could really make a power-packed combo for the Aries person. 

You’re most compatible with Sagittarius. Dogs born under this sign are passionate yet flexible, so they won’t get upset if you decide to run a few errands last-minute before you continue on your quest to the dog park. They’re pretty blunt, though, so they may give you “direct eye” instead of just side eye to show their minor annoyance over the detour.

You can still have great times with your Leo dog, for sure, because they are just as ambitious and motivated as you. But let’s just say it might be a little bit harder to determine who’s in charge sometimes–a lion or a ram.

Side note: If you have a Libra dog, you may have to really talk up the perks to get them out the door, but once you do, they’re sure to get caught up in your enthusiasm!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Element: Earth
Symbol: Bull
Greek Divinity: Hestia (Protector of the Home)


Who loves all the pleasures of the earth? If you’re a Taurus, then you know we’re talking about you. Bring on the 1000-thread-count 100% Egyptian cotton sheets, essential oil bath time with a glass of wine, and an Instagram that any foodie would be jealous of. 

Don’t get us wrong–you know the value of a dollar, and you’ve put in the hard work to get where you are, so you can relax however you like!

Your best fur buddies are Libra and Cancer. Air sign Libra and water sign Cancer bring two vital elements for earth sign Taurus. It also helps that these two will truly appreciate life’s luxuries as much as you do.

You are most compatible with Cancer. Together, you and your best Cancer buddy will turn your home into a palace fit for its royal subjects–just you and your pooch. They’re just as into self-care as you, and would love to share a doggy-and-me spa day with you. Plus, they appreciate having their own comfy nook in the palace.

Let’s not forget your Libra pal, though! Trust us, they will be right there next to you enjoying a couples massage, if you can find a place that will do that! Of course, you’ll be paying the bill, FYI.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Element: Air
Symbol: Twins
Greek Divinities: Castor and Pollux (twins!)


You’re giving us charm; you’re giving us life of the party; you’re giving us superior intellect; and you’re spinning in a million directions at once! You must be a Gemini. 

You wrote the book on small talk and have tons of brilliant ideas that may or may not ever come to fruition. One week, you’re trying out roller derby, but the next week your passion might be extreme cross-stitching, but you’ll never be boring.  

Your best fur buddies are Aquarius and Sagittarius. Why? Three words: smart, social, and hyperactive.

You are most compatible with Aquarius. You and your pup could spend hours with those buttons that dogs push to “talk.” Your pup’s curiosity and excitement for training plus your love of hobbies and pursuit of knowledge=unstoppable. Watch out, Bunny!

If your dog’s a Sagittarius, you probably like to take your pal everywhere you go, since the party shows up when you do. Your dog has just as many friend circles as you–no matter where you end up, you’re sure to find a familiar face.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Element: Water
Symbol: Crab
Greek Divinity: Artemis (Goddess of the Moon)


Crabs are good people. What we mean is, your sign is said to have a hard outer shell, like your mascot, but you need it to protect the soft-natured, compassionate personality underneath. 

Your best fur buddies are Pisces and Scorpio. Think: deep, emotional commitment. That’s you and your dog, if they are one of these signs.

You are most compatible with Scorpio. Think about it. Scorpio, scorpion. Cancer, crab. Both have those protective shells and little pinschers that can really hurt. But once you win over each other’s trust, you and your pup will be inseparable! 

And just like Pisces, your fellow water sign, you’re both seriously emotionally deep. You and your dog would be content to spend an evening gazing meaningfully into each other’s eyes.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Element: Fire
Symbol: Lion
Greek Divinity: Zeus


King of the gods… king of the jungle… are you starting to see a pattern here? All signs point to the mighty Leo. So, your friends say you have a flair for the dramatic. But you’re also brave, strong, loyal, and full of heart. 

Your best fur buddies are Aries and Libra. It makes sense that Aries is also a fire sign, and Libra is an air sign.

You are most compatible with Aries. Together, you and your dog can literally take over the world! In a good way, of course, with your charm and dedication. You’re both bold leaders that like to cut right to the chase and have the utmost mutual respect for each other.

Libra is also a great complement to a Leo. Your Libra pup definitely looks up to you and also brings out your fun, goofy side. And you both have tons of charisma that makes you fun to be around.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Element: Earth
Symbol: Woman
Greek Divinity: Demeter (Goddess of Agriculture)


A Virgo will DIY themselves to perfection, if you let them. They always have a project and a plan. They will always diligently finish their projects before moving on to the next, and they always expect things to go exactly as they laid it out in their plan, or they risk having a meltdown. 

People are drawn to Virgos because of their never-ending optimism, earnestness, and “can-do” attitude.

Your best fur buddies are Taurus and Capricorn. You all couldn’t be more down to earth and reliable. An Earth sign Shepherd could make for an especially good match. 

You are most compatible with Taurus. You both appreciate all the nice things in life, and you know you can always rely on each other. A pup with a Taurus sign can help you be a little more laid back and take time to stop and sniff all the stuff you might have missed along your walks. 

A close second match is Capricorn. They are driven by their lofty goals, like becoming the unofficial leader of the dog park, but they don’t like pesky details, like how to actually make that happen. If we know you, though, you’ll build them their own dog park to rule!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Element: Air
Symbol: Scales
Greek Divinity: Aphrodite (Goddess of Love)


No one:
Libra: Black or red?
Aries: Red.
Libra: Great, I’ll go with black!

We know you have a hard time with decisions, which is probably why you adopted two or more dogs instead of just one. You love to be surrounded by beauty and by smart, popular people. And you’ve got plenty of charm to draw them in!

Your best fur buddies are Gemini and Aquarius. The charm and intelligence in this trio is off the charts!

You are most compatible with Gemini. Your pup would love nothing more than to join you in exploring new puzzle games or even a mini agility course set up in the backyard! Once you work off all their energy, you can do what Libras love best–settling down for a cuddle.

Aquarius dogs are also great companions for Libras. This fellow air sign has a little bit of a rebellious side and an amazing sense of fashion, so make sure your Aquarius pooch has plenty of stylish accessories!

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Element: Water
Symbol: Scorpion
Greek Divinity: Hades (King of the Underworld)


Scorpios tend to get a bad reputation among the other zodiac signs. They’re said to be secretive and capable of revenge plots that can really sting. But you’re actually very intuitive and empathetic, even if you are a little intense.

Your best fur buddies are Cancer and Pisces. These three water signs can form unbreakable bonds with each other.

You are most compatible with Cancer. So many emotions! This can be a good thing, though! You and your pup have probably already formed an intense, lasting connection that can weather all storms.

You could also get lost in a sea of emotions with your Pisces pup. They are extremely intuitive, too, so they can feel when you’re happy or sad and will love nothing more than joining in your happiness or comforting you, depending on your mood.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Element: Fire
Symbol: Archer
Greek Divinity: Dionysus (God of Wine and Festivity)


A little bit feisty, a lot of fun, and always looking for the party–that’s pretty much Sagittarius. You can find a Sagittarius chasing after the next big adventure, whether that’s planning a backpacking trip through Europe or going skydiving.

Your best fur friends are Aries and Leo. You are all trustworthy and bold, and a little hard to stop when you get an idea in your head.

You are most compatible with Aries. Nothing can stop this duo in whatever they set their mind to. There will be no secrets between you and your pup, that’s for sure, because what you see is what you get. 

You’ll never stop having fun with your Leo dog. Even the most ordinary day can have you laughing and goofing around with your best pal. Just make sure your dog isn’t the one taking you for a walk, because leading comes naturally to Leos!

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Element: Earth
Symbol: Sea goat
Greek Divinity: Pan (God of Forests)


Ambition and resilience–these are the makings of a Capricorn. They can overcome any obstacles on their path because they never lose sight of their goals. There are plenty of things you want to accomplish, and you will, once you set your mind to them!

Your best fur friends are Taurus and Virgo. Realistic and hardworking pretty much sums up these earth signs.

You are most compatible with Taurus. You and your pup know the value of an honest day’s work, and you value the time you spend together. As a reward for all your hard work, you both enjoy time off together, too, complete with pampering!

Your Virgo pup’s neverending optimism and can-do attitude is what makes them the perfect complement to your sign. 

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Element: Air
Symbol: Water bearer
Greek Divinity: Prometheus (God of Creation)


You would think from the name and the symbol that Aquarius is a water sign, but surprise–it’s actually an air sign. This makes sense because your head is usually in the clouds. Not in a bad way, though–you are an idealistic humanitarian trying to figure out how to make the world a better place.

Your best fur friends are Libra and Gemini. You’re all a little quirky with big ideas that can help people.

You are most compatible with Libra. Your walks might start out like ordinary ones, but there’s no telling where you’ll end up! You and your pup feed off each other’s positive vibes and can get lost in your own little world together.

Your Gemini pup will be more than excited to join you in your next new pursuit. The two of you will never be bored together!

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Element: Water
Symbol: Two fish
Greek Divinities: Aphrodites and Eros


A Pisces likes to see the glass half full and is a sucker for any musical. They get caught up in the romance and drama of their favorite movies and bands. You are truly compassionate and empathetic and can easily adapt to your surroundings.

Your best fur friends are Cancer and Scorpio. You share so many emotions with these other water signs! A Schnauzer water sign pup could be a great match given they are extremely affectionate and smart. 

You are most compatible with Cancer. Your Cancer pup might enjoy watching that Netflix show you’ve been wanting to binge but no one will watch with you. Or you could spend the time expressing yourselves with an artistic outing like a “paint your dog” session.

You might find your Scorpio dog a littttttle intense and maybe even a bit needy, but you know they just have tons of feelings inside that they’re waiting to share with you.
