In Chinese Astrology the Dog represents the most friendly, easygoing, considerate and loyal of personalities. People born in the Year of the Dog are assumed to gain some of these nice, reliable and straightforward qualities within their personality. Western astrologists generally depict a Sagittarian as honest, optimistic and adaptable. All these uncomplicated and pleasant character traits are thought to be bestowed on a Sagittarian Dog individual. They are usually affable, complacent, understanding and positive in their demeanor. The Sagittarian Dog is easy to get to know as he is quite informal in the majority of their mannerisms.
Sagittarius Dog Traits
The Sagittarian Dog possesses lots of charm alongside their forthrightness and informality. So they are easily approachable and extremely easy to talk to and there are not many people they cannot get along with. Their casual openness is often a refreshing change in a person and one that gets them respect. Everyone who comes into contact with a Sagittarian Dog is treated to someone who expresses themselves well. There are usually no hidden extras aside from what you actually see with these particular personalities. They show their emotions freely so their moods can more often than not be predicted.
Sagittarian Dog’s are flexible and versatile so they are happy to work in most environments doing anything from simple to complex. They enjoy working with others and are not inclined to take jobs with solitary responsibilities. They are hardworking and will always do their fair share. After work the Sagittarian Dog likes to usually just go straight home but they can be occasionally persuaded to have a night out with friends. They are homely people who appreciate the comfort of familiarity and greatly value their family. These individual’s love to be surrounded by those they love and tend to never settle far from their childhood roots.
Personal relationships with a Sagittarian Dog are usually harmonious due to the way they are so respectful of others. With their easy to read emotions they can quickly convey calm on situations. They will never antagonize partners into disagreements and if one occurs they are able to negotiate and compromise fairly. The Sagittarian Dog prefers a quiet peaceful and very close emotionally deep relationship with a soul mate. They are a little jealous natured and possessive with partners but these are not extreme occurances and soon pass. These Sagittarian’s are usually devoted and faithful, demonstrative, attentive and thoughtful.
Being so laid back can have its disadvantages as well as its advantages for the Sagittarian Dog personality. Sometimes it can be a weakness as it can mean that they can underachieve in life. They will often not have any real aims or goals, they are happy to just blend in and accept the hand that life deals them. They may need encouragment to realize their potential and aim a little higher. This is a lack of confidence weakness but it can be overriden and is not frequently a major issue for most of these Sagittarian Dog’s. As they get older they seem to get more confident.
Sagittarius Dog Compatibility (Love & Friendship)
Sagittarian Dogs are completely loyal and eager to please. They are nice people whose earnestness earns them the respect of their peers. Though they are not always the most graceful socially, but they more than make up for it by being big-hearted, generous, and dedicated to their friends and families.
In love, members of this sign will likely have a dominant partner with similar views and opinions as their own. They don’t mind be tied down to a partnership as long as they get to feel independent - like having a night out with friends or going on a motorcycle trip (even if they’ve never been interested in motorcycles before). Partners need to recognize that this is an important part of their character and if they get too boxed in they will mope around and be miserable. If their partners will let them feel like they are in charge every once in awhile (even if they are not), this will go a long way.
With family they tend to be stern but playful. They are most certainly the “fun parent”, but also the one that sets the rules. They want their kids to be just like them, if not better. They seek to instill a sense of fairness and idealism in their children, and like to lead by example. Sagittarian Dogs genuinely believe that they are doing the right thing and that other would be wise to follow in their footsteps.
Sagittarius Dog Business (Career & Goals)
Sagittarian Dogs do best when they can turn their personal passions into a career. Because justice is so important to them (as is being right all the time), many members of this sign turn toward careers in justice. As lawyers, judges, and police officers, they can help create the polite society that they have always dreamed of.
Those born under this sign are also humanitarians by nature, as well as idealists, and many are involved either in the church or in charities close to home. This is a natural fit for this sign, which is why they tend to be drawn toward careers as teachers, social workers, or pastors. Even those with careers as homemakers may not be satisfied without getting involved in a local charity. Sagittarian Dogs like to manage small community affairs such as writing for the neighborhood newsletter or being on a committee for local social reform.
