According to popular lore, dogs are man’s best friend — but while many people adore the devotion and companionship of a puppy, not everyone wants to deal with muddy paws, slobbery licks or begging at the dinner table. The same goes for cats: Some find them beautiful and intriguing, while others see them as little more than snooty sneeze-factories. So which furry, feathered or scaly animal could be your best friend? Your Zodiac sign is a great place to find ideas. Our signs impart unique qualities and characteristics that help shape not only our personalities, but also our preferences. Your Sun sign can reveal the type of animal that might make your very best companion — your own, personal best friend.
With your high energy and taste for adventure, a happy, frisky dog may be the best pet for you — especially a bouncy, exuberant puppy whose boundless energy matches your own. Of course, if your attention span is on the shorter side, a full-grown dog may suit you better than a younger one, as the rigors of potty-training can test even the most patient of souls. You tend to make impulsive decisions, however, so your path toward adopting a pet is likely to be short and direct. Whether it’s a dog, a cat, an iguana or a cockatiel, as soon as you spot an animal that calls to you, you’ll find a way to make it your own.
