The honesty, friendliness and dedication of the Dog towards others is well known. The loveliness of their character is emphasized and illustrated in Chinese Astrology. People born in the Year of the Dog are thought to be gifted with the Dog’s loyal, devoted and purposeful nature. A Taurus from Western Astrology is typically calm, self reliant and quite receptive. So a Taurus Dog personality is believed to acquire all these characteristics but most especially the dedicated spirit of the faithful Dog. The aloof cool influence from the Taurus symbolized by the Bull is softened by the thoughtfulness and kindness of the Dog.
Taurus Dog Traits
A Taurus Dog is usually cheerful and he or she tends to look at life with a good degree of optimism and alertness. You will rarely find these types daydreaming and not concentrating on events or people around them. The Taurus Dog is very observant and does not like to miss anything, he can also be a little nosy sometimes too. Their alert and responsible personalities make them ideal applicants for any job requiring concentration and accuracy. Some of these individual’s may also have infinite patience and endurance in equal proportions from both animal influences in the personality.
In personal relationships the Taurus Dog is prepared to be more flexible with his or her self reliance. They seem to approach love and romance with a more accommodating view to anything else in their life. These are exceptionally loving people who are easily able to separate and prioritize this area of their life from work and other commitments. A Taurus Dog adores feeling loved and wanted and craves affection. When they are in love everyone seems to notice their little glow. They will want to share everything with partners and can be both immensely passionate and romantic. Their flexibility, consideration and understanding help them form strong bonds with soul mates.
Taurus Dog’s enjoy their spare time enormously, while they are hard workers they look forward to relaxation. They will usually have many interests that help them unwind both in and outside the home. They are not choosy, they like to play or watch sports and like eating in or dining out. A Taurus Dog likes to occupy his leisure time wisely and most often prefers to spend it with their partner. They are sometimes just content to use the time to nothing more than relax, watch movies and eat popcorn. These personalities are fond of their food and appreciate its varied tastes. They like to experiment in the kitchen and often become quite expert at cooking.
The faithfulness and loyalty of the Taurus Dog personality can sometimes be a weakness as well as an asset. This weak spot is their proneness to sometimes misdirect their devotion to something or someone. This weakness in their characters is mostly mild and does not usually cause any big problems. It mainly appears when a Taurus Dog is young and inexperienced in life skills. If they have good parents as guides this tendency can often be eliminated altogether.
Taurus Dog Compatibility (Love & Friendship)
Taurus Dogs are very social by nature and have a certain flair that draws others to them like a magnet. They usually know many people, but probably only have a few close friends who know them very well. Taurus Dogs are genuinely empathetic and interested in other people, but can sometimes take the teasing of others too seriously. Deep down they are sensitive souls who are a bit uncertain of themselves, but who genuinely want to please other people as long as it doesn’t require too much effort. Their friends appreciate their loyalty and earnestness, and this carries them a long way.
Members of this sign like to be in relationships because they like to be loved and to feel secure. They will probably have many relationships over time, starting as a teenager. Though they can be alone, they prefer not to be. When talking about what they believe in, Taurus Dogs have a way of sharing their passion with others, which only intensifies the fire in a relationship, though this eventually gives way to reality, unfortunately for them. Partners may find it difficult to handle the emotional instability and stubbornness of this sign. Once again, the question of maturity will have to be answered before Taurus Dogs can settle down for good.
Taurus Dog Business (Career & Goals)
More than anything, Taurus Dogs want to do a really good job. They are loyal to their employers, even if they harbor dreams of doing something bigger and better. Taurus Dogs are intelligent and capable workers who can become dedicated to the point of obsession, but they may be disappointed after working hard on the boss’s project to find out that they didn’t get any more money or credit for their efforts. Taurus Dogs often dream of striking out on their own, but most have too much anxiety and self-doubt to see it through. In truth, Taurus Dogs don’t like to put their own security at risk, even if there is a decent chance they could come out ahead.
Since Taurus Dogs care about people and their community, they would be wise to look in this direction for career inspiration. Combined with their natural sense of justice, they do well in jobs such as police officer, charity worker, counselor, teacher, or politician. Ambitious types who don’t mind more schooling may choose a career as a lawyer or judge as well. Taurus Dogs also enjoy nature and may find contentment in jobs such as forest ranger, florist, or gardener.
