This is an especially favorable set of characteristics to acquire and compliments nicely the sensitive Cancer personality. An Cancerian Dog personality is a pleasure to have around and will often carry with them their positive friendly aura.

These personalities thrive on being fair and so usually treat others how they themselves like to be treated.
Cancer Dog Traits
Running through the Cancerian Dog character is a generous helping of fairness that relates to his gift of much compassion. The Cancerian Dog’s devoted and emotionally tuned in personality can see all sides of an argument and so usually all reasons for people’s grievances. This ability often gains these people a reputation for being very fair in their approach to everything. They hate unfairness and are not known to suffer it quietly often making a big fuss if they think they or their acquaintances are being unfairly behaved towards.
In relationships with other adults the influence of the Dog in these Cancerians may make them a little instinctively cautious. At the beginning of close personal courtships the Cancerian Dog is never quite relaxed. They can be a little shy at first and may need coaxing into relaxing before they start to feel comfortable and at ease. This is partly due to the Dog’s always on guard stance and the underlying insecurities of the typical Cancerian. People with this combined Western and Chinese Astrology composition may take some convincing before they decide to commit. Their careful guarded attitude towards long term serious relationships sees many of them dating for quite a while before eventually settling down.
Cancerian Dogs are remarkable judges of character and appear to have a natural sense towards people that are kind. These people are good listeners who are typically non judgmental and will give you an impartial hearing and practical advice. The Cancerian Dog person’s personality is ideally suited to caring or advisory careers, they also make fantastic and capable parents. Their all round versatility and great ability to do many things at once makes these personalities popular and never short of friends. Their bubbly outlook and sense of adventure is rather infectious making these personalities nice to be with. They value friendship and loyalty deeply and often this is the main thing they will search for in a potential partner.
Cancerian Dog is a wonderful character, generally happy and eager to please but he or she is not without weaknesses. These personalities can be known to be obstinate, moody and over demanding. These Cancerian Dog traits are usually only displayed during periods of anxiety and worry. If these people have something worrying them their usual cheery temperament will often suffer. They should also take care to not let others take advantage of their extremely loyal nature and fierce defense of injustice.
Cancer Dog Compatibility (Love & Friendship)
Those born under this sign are not the most social creatures, nor one of the more socially adept, but those who know them well that they are among the most loyal and reliable friends anyone can have. They don’t let their true colors show all that often, but when they finally do they are often goofy and silly and like to joke around and have fun. Only those who they trust completely know this side of them, as they prefer to wear a poker face around all others. Cancerian Dogs have trouble making new friends because of this, which is ironic because of how great they are to those they do allow close to them.
Love will be difficult as this sign is constantly giving and is afraid to take from those they love. In their minds they see this generosity as a way to “earn love”, but in reality it makes them appear needy and insecure. In order to achieve balance in their love lives, members of this sign will have to learn how to stand up for themselves and say “no” to the people they love the most. Despite their strong character, this is probably the most difficult thing in the world for them to do, but necessary to maintain real relationships. Partners tend to take so much of what’s given that they feel guilty and begin resenting the Cancerian Dog for letting them become so greedy. This is usually the keystone in the relationship that when broken causes the entire partnership to fall to pieces.
Cancer Dog Business (Career & Goals)
Justice is hugely important to this sign. They can’t stand it when people say “life’s not fair” since they believe with all of their hearts that it should be. Combined with their protective nature, this personality trait is what leads many Cancerian Dogs into a law career. Whether this takes the form of lawyer, judge, or even social worker, a Cancerian Dogs nature is to fight for justice and fairness in the world. It’s impossible for members of this sign not to become emotionally involved in their work, which can often drain them and cause deep depression. As with all aspects of their lives, this sign needs to learn to protect itself as much as it protects others, or it will have a very hard time finding serenity in life.
The Cancerian Dog is a helper, a giver. Those who don’t want to fight for justice often turn to medicine to fulfill their life purpose. Again, this is a very capable sign that will succeed because of their heart but can also get too emotionally involved at the same time. Doctor, nurse, hospice care professional - all of these are fitting career choices for this sign.
