If you'd literally be happy to have any dog in your life and truly believe every breed is tied for cutest breeds, you might want to turn to the stars for advice. The best dog breeds for Taurus personalities might not be all that intuitive. You might think that your unwavering stubbornness and bull-like attitude would make the greatest match for a dog of the same disposition. But when it comes to being a dog owner, you're not really looking to raise yourself in a dog. You're looking for compatibility that goes both ways. Really, you and your dog should balance each other out, providing an exchange of traits that you don't innately have.

Here, I've put together a list of dog breeds that are particularly suited for the Taurus personality. Together, you should be able to have a symbiotic relationship that's filled with only a little bit of playful push pull, and not a lifetime of combat or struggle. Just because you might be able to handle a dog that's got a challenging and competitive nature, doesn't necessarily mean that's what's best for either of you. What's more, there are so many other important parts of your personality besides your strong will! Your patience and generosity will make you suited for a wide range of dogs that need a little bit more care and consideration than others.

These are some of the best breeds for a Taurus, just remember that when you're ready to search for the dog of your dreams, do so at the point. Be a responsible pet owner and adopt, don't shop!

People don't often think about how their social lives will affect their dogs but it's important. Some dogs get ver stressed out around groups of people and other dogs get very bored when no one's around. Taurus is not a big fan of having a lot of people in your home, you like to keep your personal life small and quiet. The Scottish Terrier is the same way. They don't like to be in chaotic households or surrounded by a lot new people, so you'll appreciate each other's temperament and end up providing each other with just enough socialization as you need.
