Making the decision to get a family pet is major. First you have to agree on whether you want a cat or dog — dicey territory to be sure. Yet even if your family falls decidedly in the dog camp, you still have to agree on the breed. Big dog or little? In my case, my daughter wants a Maltese but my husband wants a Lab — it's a total stalemate. Fortunately, there's a way (albeit unconventional) to settle this matter: the zodiac! Here's what kind of dog you should have based on your kid's zodiac sign.
When your family is divided on what kind of pup to pick, it's easy to just throw in the towel and say "Okay, no dog!" But, there's something so sweet about the bond between a child and his or her beloved pet, that makes it totally worthwhile to go the extra mile to find just the right canine companion. So in the case of my family, where my daughter wants a lap dog and my husband wants a running mate, well, I've turned to the zodiac and bingo: signs point to a Poodle mix, like a Labradoodle. I think that sounds like a win-win for everyone.
Wondering what the best dog breed is for your family? Here's a list of the best dogs for you based on your child's zodiac sign.
