Anxiety, loyalty and protectiveness characterize the magnanimous Dog personality. Devotion, generosity, and perseverance are the cornerstones of the wary Dogs temperament. This 11th sign of the Eastern zodiac is earnest, sincere and faithful to those whom they love, but being plagued by wariness, can have a sharp tongue, and a tendency to jump to conclusions. Cautious and serious regarding love, the Dog needs a trustworthy partner who has strong family sympathies, and appreciates their tenderhearted virtues. Low on ego, high on soapboxes, the Dogs’ fair-minded humanitarianism is legendary. Best time of day for Dogs is between 7:00pm – 9:00pm.

The male dog often thinks he knows best even when he doesn’t have a clue as to what is going on. A hard worker, good provider and wise with his money. Happiest in quiet, peaceful surroundings, the male dog doesn’t need the adrenalin rush to have a good time. Usually he makes a fine family man.
