Have you ever wondered what dog breed you would be if you could turn into a pup? Luckily, you can find out which dog breed captures your zodiac sign, because astrology can tell us so much about our lives, personalities and more—including which dog breed matches your personality!
According to the American Kennel Club, there are about 200 wonderful dog breeds that are categorized into one of seven groups based on their personality, physical traits and more. Matching zodiac signs with dog breeds is possible when considering the traits of each breed and which of the seven groups the dog breed is in. For example, fire signs are usually active and high-energy zodiac signs that would pair nicely with the lively breeds in the working and sporting groups. Meanwhile, the social, community-focused air signs would be best represented by the intelligent, pack-focused breeds from the herding and hunting groups. However, the hardworking earth signs would need to be matched with dog breeds that are equally driven, such as the breeds from the working and terrier groups. Lastly, the easygoing, sensitive water signs will likely see a reflection of their personalities in the dog breeds that are part of the non-sporting and toy groups.
