If you want loyal fair
minded friend, then seek out a Dog. But, he chooses you. He will decide whether he wants
you as a friend or not. His defences are always on the alert. He will take his time to
assess you, but once he numbers you as his friend then he will be with you through thick
and thin and his confidence in you will be unshakeable.
Liking the outdoors, he is best suited in jobs that does not tie him to
the desk. And if he has a desk job, he should play an active sport as this will release a
lot of his heavy emotions that can make him bad tempered.
The Dog seems to have been put on this Earth to give a balance to all
the materialistic, self gratifying and egocentric signs. He is here to give one hope that
there are some unselfish, straight forward people left in this materialistic world who you
can depend on in your hour of need.
When you are his friend, you can be at ease in his company no matter if
you are rich, poor, successful, unsuccessful, healthy or an invalid. He will fight your
battles and give you whatever moral support you may need. Because of his solid character,
he is greatly respected and can be looked towards as a leader.
Tough and aggressive when provoked, he rarely looses his temper or his
cool. He can be physical when he is angry, but he is emotionally just as tough as he is

not to rile a Dog up when you encounter him. Show him respect.
The mistake most people make about the Dog is that they underestimate
his good guy attitude. But his temper is hot and short. He is your friend again after
that. He has an enormous capacity to make excuses for his friends and there is always that
chance that they may take advantage of him.
In situations like this, when it comes to the matters of the heart, the
Dog may be considered a fool because the object of his love may take him for a ride over
and over again and he will continually be forgiving. It would be an extreme case when the
Dog finally decides to break the relationship up and he will grieve especially if there
are children involved.
But the Dog is not a push over. He is just very tolerant as he can
always see both side of a problem. He will understand what drove his friend or loved one
to make such a mistake in a given situation.
As he goes through life watchful, encountering the deviousness of
mankind, seeing how greed drives them to cruel and unjust deeds and how lust corrupts, he
grows more and more disillusioned. For this he has gained the reputation of being a cynic
and mistrusting. And heavy is the heart of many an old Dog and more withdrawn do they
