Ox and Dog Compatibility
The Ox and the Dog make a good match, whether their relationship is romantic or platonic. Both these signs will appreciate one another’s trustworthy, honest nature, and especially the Dog, who tends to be a worrier and has trouble allowing itself to trust others. The Ox is honorable and intelligent and will never give the Dog reason to feel jealous or betrayed. The Ox will also especially appreciate the Dog’s loyal decency and will want to return the favor.
As an Ox, you are much like your namesake animal: stubborn! Although other people often find this frustrating, that is because they misunderstand you. The reason you refuse to budge is because you have carefully considered all of your options beforehand and are completely sure that you have picked the right one. You are smart, and you don’t often pick the wrong strategy to accomplish something. Your stubbornness means that you are very persistent, and you never give up on a project or a partner. This makes you a very loyal lover.
Dogs love stability. They are just as loyal as you are, and are as faithful as the canine companions for whom they are named. Dogs think very logically, but if you push a Dog too far, she will snarl and growl. Dogs do notice the faults of others, and so even if a Dog lets you get away with them most of the time, her tongue will be sharp when you anger her. Dogs have a pessimistic outlook. This makes them great at being protective (they are all guard dogs) because they are always suspecting the worse from people and situations, but it also makes them prone to anxieties. A Dog needs you to support her and help her calm down when she is anxious. Luckily, it is easy for you to be a rock of emotional stability.
You will love your Dog’s logical mind. The only time she is a tad irrational is when she is protecting you and your family. You will love how hard she is willing to work for the relationship, and she will appreciate how you aren’t so consumed with doubt as she often is. It is easy for you to live with a Dog, because both of you prefer to think things through before jumping in, and both of you prefer to have a solid plan of attack. As long as you make your plans together so you are on the same page, you will have very few arguments.
Dogs and Oxen are often misunderstood in the same ways. Many people consider both of these signs to be somewhat stupid, because Dogs are loyal to the end, and Oxen are stubborn to the end. To outsiders, it may seem like both the Ox and the Dog are blind and deaf to other opinions, but in reality, there is a powerful intelligence that has thought out the consequences before taking action. Dogs will not break their loyalty because they think carefully before giving it, and Oxen will not change their minds because they think carefully before making them up!
Ox and Dog Love Compatibility
As lovers these two can provide one another with much comfort and stability. The Ox likes to create a harmonious, orderly home life and this sort of calm is sure to soothe the Dog’s sometimes oversensitive nature. The Dog naturally tends toward a pessimistic mindset and the Ox can serve as the Dog’s rock, lending its sturdy shoulder to lean on when the Dog gives in to its irrational fears. Again, this is not a relationship that’s prone to betrayal; these two both set high standards for their own conduct and that of others. Both can be rather dogmatic at times, in fact, which may lead to arguments, especially since the Ox has a stubborn streak. The Ox also shies away from discord, however, so communication between these two will generally be smooth.
