Get a smart pooch with loads of personality for Geminis. They are easily bored, so a dog that is a fast learner, that can give and receive lots of mental as well as physical stimulation would make a great choice. In the absence of a talking dog, many breeds thrive on being talked to a lot and having clear jobs to do, like fetching the paper each morning or changing the channel with the remote control.
Choose a small dog that lives for being constantly held, caressed and fussed over for a Cancer. It will satisfy a Cancer's mothering instinct to be able to care for a small furry friend.

A female dog has the extra promise of a possible litter to care for in the future as well.
Get an extravagantly gorgeous dog for Leo. One that is regal, yet entertaining and playful. A Leo will respect a dog that also likes to be the center of attention like they do. And Leos will never be bored with a rare, gigantic breed that is loyal, devoted and causes stares wherever they go.

Choose a breed that thrives on a schedule. If the dog is also a helpful little buddy, these two will enjoy a long and happy relationship.
Get an elegant, charming and peaceful dog for Libra. Libra will most appreciate a dog that is beautiful to look at, perhaps a pure breed status dog and one that may even do tricks at parties. Lots of snuggling and obedience are huge pluses. Beauty wins out over brains any day for a dog that Librans will prize.

A Scorpio will enjoy a self-sufficient breed with some sort of unusual character traits such as an intense distrust for strangers.
Choose an easygoing and self-sufficient breed of dog for Sagittarius. This dog has to be ready at a moment's notice to go wherever and do whatever its master spontaneously decides. A Sagittarius will appreciate any dog that is affectionate, sociable and enthusiastic, like themselves. Large friendly dogs that need plenty of exercise hit the mark for sporty Sagittarians' lifestyles.
Get an intelligent, loyal and purposeful dog for Capricorn. A low-maintenance, independent city dog will best suit a Capricorn's busy lifestyle. And Capricorns will appreciate a smaller dog that will be easy to find a pet sitter for when they are on one of their frequent business trips. The perfect dog for ambitious Capricorn would also contribute to the family income by performing some sort of service to society or winning dog contests.
Find an unusual-looking dog with a detached nature for an Aquarius. Aquarians have so many different interests that they like a dog that is not too demanding and can keep itself amused for hours with plenty of toys. An independent dog and an Aquarius will be great companions for years to come.
Choose a calm, affectionate and docile breed that will appeal to a Pisces' calm and patient nature.
