Dog's personality horoscope
If the Dog is a honest, respectful and fair worker, he also appreciates laziness as a virtue. Gluttony is his sinful sin, while a tendency to hypochondria can be for him a source of anxiety that will push him to isolate himself and take refuge in a gloomy loneliness.
The Dog tends to have a Manichean vision of his relationship with others, who are either friends or enemies. This doesn't mean that he doesn't know how to be indulgent and forgive gracefully, not without having previously expressed his discontent. The Dog is also endowed with a great perspicacity and an unparalleled sense of observation, which he uses in order to better protect his house and his neighborhood, places from which he moves away as little as possible. The Dog naturally inspires confidence, which is convenient for him to convince his friends to always follow him on new journeys.
In love, the Dog is loyal, sensual and deeply devoted to his couple and his family. He may also be jealous and uncompromising, defects for which he must constantly work on himself.
If the Dog prefers to remain discreet about his private life, he never says no to opportunities that could put him in the spotlight. With age, the eleventh sign of the Chinese zodiac can become famous (and more of a loner).
