The honesty, friendliness and dedication of the Dog towards others are 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.
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 individuals may also have infinite patience and endurance in equal proportions from both of the animal influences in their 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 than 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 soulmates.
Taurus Dogs enjoy their spare time enormously, and 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 his partner. They are sometimes just content to use the time to do 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.
