The Perfect Dog For You, Based On Your Zodiac Sign
Zodiac

You need a dog. Why? Because everybody needs someone who will love you unconditionally, will always be glad to see you, and will make you take a walk.

Cats are great and all, but there's nothing like the unconditional love and loyalty of a furry canine friend. I mean, how many videos have you seen across the internet that make you go "awww," and then you convince yourself that you really need a dog?

Puppy videos are in endless supply, but you just can't help but wonder which dog is the best fit for you. Dogs are the best friend you've always needed, but which suits you best?

The perfect dog for each zodiac sign all depends on unique personality traits, determined by dog breed and astrology.
