    A Dog’s Personality

    Dogs are loyal and honest, amiable and kind, cautious and prudent. They can be objective, offer good advice and are a constructive and efficient thinker with a well-defined purpose. Due to their loyalty, Dogs will do anything for the person who is most important to them but they often find it difficult to convey their thoughts to others. They are born with a good nature and look for a quiet life surrounded by family. They are always ready to help others and usually enjoy good health, are happy most of the time and are physically active.
