Dog Chinese Zodiac Sign - Characteristics, Personality, Meanings and Compatibility

Characteristics and personality of the Dog
Dog is loner, extremely stubborn and highly suspicious of new acquaintances. People born in the Year of the Dog tend to submerge themselves in completely unimportant matters and details. They are a bit crazy, but their evolved sensibilities and critical spirit help to protect them from the worst.

Superficially, Dogs can appear coldblooded, but usually this impression is deceiving. They are just very uncertain of themselves and incessantly have doubts about their own feelings and the feelings of others. However, despite these defects, Dogs really embody the noblest qualities of human nature. They are loyal, faithful, honest, truthful and well aware of their responsibilities. As a friend they are absolutely reliable.

In a social setting Dogs appear awkward and mumbling. They are rarely likable, but they are the intelligent and attentive listeners, thereby, their friends enjoy their company. Dogs will do everything for those they like. Their dedication often escalates to self-denial and they become detrimental to themselves at the expense of others.

Dogs are not money hungry, they are humble and generous, not interested in material possessions which they often give away for the benefit of others. Whatever profession Dogs choose, they will pour all their energy and dedication into. In love, Dogs are open, strong and, in particular, honest. However, love can be a really troubling issue for them.
