The Dog is the most likable sign in the Chinese zodiac. Like his animal namesake, he is loyal with a capital "L". He is the one who people are most likely to turn to when they need help, and the dog person will come through every time. That is because the dog person is sensitive to others and empathizes with them, particularly if someone has suffered an injustice, reacting quickly with the same feeling, as though he/she had been personally offended. Friends value these qualities and know that they can rely on their dog friend to keep a promise or remain cool in a crisis. Dog types are honest, intelligent and straightforward. They will take on any responsibility that is given to them and you can be sure that they will do their job conscientiously and well.
Dog people are often born old and get younger as they age. They take everything very seriously. You may hear the Dog complains a lot about street lamps, about traffic, or about the weather, but as he gets older, the less he takes his own criticisms seriously.

They never really accept the fact that injustice and oppression can exist in the world.
