Relationships are ruff.

Being able to trust someone can be difficult, and for some zodiac signs, they trust their furry friend more than a human one. Almost everyone has experienced being burned by someone that they thought they could trust. It’s no wonder some people seem to trust their dogs more than their boyfriends or any other human being.

Depending on your astrological zodiac sign, you’re more likely than others to experience this feeling of trusting your dog more than your boyfriend.

And frankly, who can blame you? Dogs don’t lie – their sheer joy to see you is written all over their adorable little faces and wagging tails.

Plus, I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been in an argument with my dog and my dog has never said anything to hurt my feelings.

Quite the contrary, when you’re crying because your boyfriend upset you; it tends to be the lovable pup that cuddles up to you and makes you feel better.

Heck, maybe dogs are just better than boyfriends no matter what astrology says!

Especially certain types of boyfriends (you know the “type” I’m talking about and I don't have to be specific with naming zodiac or horoscope signs – you’re better off without those guys).

While it’s important to evaluate whether or not your feelings are rooted in some deep-seated issues with trust and commitment; it’s still understandable to have a deeper connection to your dog than your boyfriend (especially if the dog came first and/or it’s a newer relationship).

Human beings have a tendency to be a bit needy (we all are – no judgment), so it makes sense that we form such strong bonds with entities whose sole purpose is to bring us joy, companionship and make us feel needed (i.e. our pets).

Plus, let’s get real, maintaining any human relationship is hard. Dogs take far less emotional upkeep than people, so it’s easier to keep a strong bond with them.

Check out the top 5 zodiac signs most likely to trust their dogs more than they trust their boyfriends.


1. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

The Gemini’s dislike for being alone means that she is likely to have formed a strong bond with her pup. A bond so strong that it’s hard to compete with as her man. Plus, the Gemini’s nervous nature makes them uncomfortable with human's tendency for being inconsistent (which is ironic since Gemini’s are notoriously inconsistent and indecisive). All of this makes them likely to trust their dog more than they trust their boyfriend.

2. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers have a tendency to be more emotional and sensitive than other signs, which means they are more likely to get their feelings hurt by comments made by their boyfriends. Since dogs can’t make hurtful comments, she is likely to bond better with them on an emotional level. This mixed with her pessimistic and suspicious nature (likely to think things like, “he’s probably bored of me” or “he’s probably cheating on me”) make the support a dog can give her hard to compete with (sorry, fellas).

3. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

The Virgos tend to be very practical, which CAN translate to thinking along the lines of “my dog won’t leave and hurt me”. This tendency mixed with their tendency to worry and be overly critical of others (“he’s not making enough effort”) mean that their adoration for their dog (Virgos are the most likely to LOVE animals) mean that a Virgo’s boyfriend is going to have to do a lot to prove he’s trustworthy.

4. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

The Scorpio’s jealous and suspicious nature makes them prone to issues with trusting their boyfriends. This tends to make them trust their dogs more due to the fact that dogs are less likely to be doing shady things behind their backs. Plus, dogs tend to be so loyal their isn’t much to distrust or be jealous in her K9 relationship.

5. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

The Aquarius’s tendency to think things through intellectually rather than emotionally make them realize that people aren’t always honest (dogs, however, wear their emotions on their metaphoric sleeves). This mixed with their habit of running away form emotional expression make them likely to have trouble connecting properly with their boyfriends and find it easier to connect with their dogs.
