If You're A Taurus, This Is The Perfect Pet For You

You are typically either a dog person or a cat person, but in some cases, you can be both. Choosing a pet may seem like an easy decision, but before committing to one, you need to realize the responsibilities that come with it. If your job requires you to be away from your home for a long time, it is probably best to get a cat or a hamster because they won't need constant care. If you are an active person, who likes to go on hikes and wants a little buddy, a dog is probably your best bet. You should always think about your lifestyle and personality before choosing your pet. 

According to Psychology Today, there are many benefits to having a pet. For example, they give you "unconditional love," and taking care of another life is also "emotionally healthy." Once you realize the value of a pet, it is only a matter of time before you want one for yourself. But did you also know that your zodiac sign can help you find the best pet? Interesting, right? 

If you fall under Taurus, we have the ideal companion for you. According to Astrology Zone, this sign is "strong, reliable, and patient," which are extraordinary qualities for any pet parent to have. This sign also has the fantastic "ability to provide," and makes "the most loyal partners" within the zodiac (via Elite Daily). Therefore, there's just one pet that's perfect for you.

Taurus and dogs have loyalty in common

Taurus, you have amazing qualities, but you can be "a little bit lazy" (via Bustle). Therefore, getting a dog can be great for you because you will be going on more walks, and dogs are often "happiest when they are walking," per Psychology Today. Plus, no one in the world will ever love you as much as your pup. Both of you can benefit from this relationship, which makes this a win-win. Reader's Digest recommends boxers because they are "loyal and calm," as they match your personality perfectly. After all, they are "more regal," just like you. Other breeds are also compatible with Taurus, including Great Danes because they are "strong-willed," Australian shepherds because they are "beautiful dogs" to look at, or even Scottish terriers, who have a "happy and cheerful demeanor" just like you. They are your doggy matches made in heaven.

It's ultimately a personal choice whether you want to buy a puppy or adopt, but a puppy "can easily cost $500 to $1,000 or more," while adoption fees "range from $50 to $200," per Petcare Hospital & Wellness Center. Moreover, The Washington Post reported that when the pandemic started, people adopted "millions of puppies," and now that they are returning to work, some of them are giving up their "pandemic puppies." Fellow Taureans, it might be a great idea to give your future best friend a furrever home with you.
