Dog Personality Traits

Dog people decidedly protect those who are known to them and loved and can be quite defensive in unknown situations, at least until it becomes known. Dog people may seem standoffish at first, but once they get to know you they can lavish affection like no other sign.

Dog people are known for their hospitality, their comfortable home life, courage, dedication, persistence, and ability to serve. However, introverted Dog people tend to be defensive and critical may also appear cynical and grim at times.

The Dog is Yang by Nature.

Those born in a Dog year will find Horse, Tiger and other Dog people most compatible. They will find Rat and Rooster people the hardest to deal with.
