So your dog is a Libra, represented by the scales, the epitome of balance. But that doesn’t mean your dog can’t be crazy, it just means they are prone to keeping the peace when situations get tough. Libra dogs are gentle souls who believe in restoring the order. They enjoy mental stimulation and training their brains. They are wondefully empathetic and make great, trusted friends.
Libra dogs are fascinated by symmetry and often enjoy expensive things, like self-care days and shiny toys. Even though they do enjoy the finer things in life (who doesn’t?), they are mostly selfless souls who will often prioritize the needs of those they care about more than they do their own. A Libra dog would take the collar off their own neck for another soul, and that’s what makes them so special.

At their best, Libra dogs are the glue of their social circles, keeping everything around them in working order. They thrive in social situations and provide thoughtful, measured responses to just about anyone who approaches them. Libra dogs can put an end to any awkward social situation with just some good, old-fashioned charm. They are fine mediators with wonderfully vivid imaginations. Libra dogs are genuinely happy when others are happy; they are motivated nearly always by positive intentions. They have strong instincts that make them deft at navigating even the most complex of social frameworks — like who’s king of the dog park.
At their worst, Libra dogs attempt to avoid conflict to such a degree that it becomes more painful. They can fail to stand up for themselves in situations that do call for assertive behavior because they are people pleasers who would prefer overall harmony over their individual happiness. Libra dogs can be prone to feeling sorry for themselves and like to milk self-pity for all it’s worth. Libra dogs rely on social interactions for much of their happiness and thus can quickly latch on to codependant relationships. It’s very rare to find a single-and-happy-about-it Libra. And although this sign is extraordinarily nice, they do have a tendency to hold grudges.
Libra dogs enjoy balance and harmony in all aspects of life, from a tidy home to rewarding, symbiotic relationships with owners and friends. As air signs, Libra dogs thrive on communication and have no trouble expressing themselves — to you, the mailman, or the wall really. They enjoy both new and familiar social situations where they can stretch and recharge. Although Libra dogs aren’t big on fighting, they do like passionate, heated discussions. A Libra dog has no problem playing devil’s advocate and presenting another side to the argument as long as the conversation remains logical and detached as they don’t want anyone’s feelings to get hurt. Because Libra dogs love being kind and receiving kindess in return.
Libra dogs have a commanding presence that doesn’t require them to be the loudest pup in the room. They don’t respond well to other people and pups who feel like barking the most translates to having the best conversation. Libra dogs have a refined taste and don’t appreciate uncouth creatures who seek to pummel discussion with their lack of wit. Libra dogs believe having an opinion and standing by it is one of the keys to healthy living and they don’t like others who ascribe to a particular way of thinking without ever really… thinking about it. They don’t like being wrong and will sometimes not participate in activities or discussions rather than look foolish.
