Since it was domesticated, the dog is considered man's best friend. It is said that he is faithful, loyal and reliable and knows neither betrayal nor deceit. All this can also be said of the dog in the Chinese zodiac. The dog is always and everywhere ready to stand up for a good and just cause. If he sniffs out an injustice somewhere, he becomes really biting and does not rest until justice is done again. In general, he is on the spot wherever help is needed - be it in natural disasters or social conflicts. His willingness to make sacrifices has something of the heroism of great fighters. He is less well versed in the manners of fine society. He is always straightforward and can utter the greatest rudeness with an innocent mien. His love of the truth often offends him, because he speaks it at the wrong moment. Although he is very well-read and educated, his conversation cannot be called polished. However, what he says with his simple words has hand and foot. His lifestyle is rather modest. He can well do without comfort and luxury. He is more interested in philosophical insights than in money. From time to time he is overcome by dejection, despondency and a tendency to nihilism. Then he gets defensive and doesn't let anyone get close to him. But fortunately he is blessed with a strong instinct for self-preservation and always falls back on his four paws.
The dog and its health
Physically, dogs are strong and fit. But their psyche is a little cracked. This comes from the black vision, which can sometimes lead to serious depression. They get back on their feet quickly, but it does take a bit out of their vital energy and health.
The dog and at work
Although he likes to work reliably, the dog has no ambition and no desire to climb the career ladder. It is enough for him to feel that he is doing something meaningful. The work must bring joy. He will find his fulfillment in the social field - that is where his greatest talent lies. The dog can also be a good industrial manager, an active trade unionist, a jurist, a priest or an educator. But whichever profession he takes up, he does it with a lot of idealism.
The dog and love
In love, the dog always behaves fairly and sincerely. He does not play with the feelings of others. But unfortunately, he is often disappointed, because not everyone appreciates his honesty. The dog can be happy with the horse. It lets him make the most important decisions, but he keeps his independence. With the tiger by his side, the dog can have great adventures. They can fight side by side for justice. The dog can lead a truly peaceful life with the rabbit. The Dragon is too proud to put up with the Dog's critical spirit and cynicism. And the goat the dog thinks is superficial. Besides, he can't stand her whims.
