So your dog is a Pisces, which, as the twelfth and final sign of the zodiac, means their personality also contains a composite of the 11 signs that come before it. That’s why the mutable Pisces, symbolized by the fish, is often compared to water itself — able to fill any container at all. Pisces dogs adapt to situations, responding as they come.
Ruled by the mysterious and mystical planet Neptune, Pisces dogs live in a world of their own — often seen as distracted and oblivious to things happening outside of their own inner workings. These dogs aren’t motivated by their own ego and can be bleeding hearts, deperate to help others sometimes at the expense of themselves. They are naturally intuitive and capable of speaking to and enjoying people and animals from every walk of life.
Pisces Dates: February 19 to March 20

At their best, Pisces dogs are caring, compassionate creatures who can use their uniquely empathetic skills to solve nearly any emotionally distressing problem. These selfless souls find strength in helping others in any situation, big or small. They are dreamy, imaginative dogs who use their propensity to get lost in thought to provide creative solutions to any obstacles in their way. Pisces dogs are open and don’t find the need to hide much, but sometimes their dreaminess can translate a little less directly. Pisces dogs don’t feel the need to judge others and are considered incredidbly tolerant, understanding that every human and dog moves at their own pace.
At their worst, Pisces dogs can avoid confrontation like the plague, retreating into their inner worlds where everything makes sense. That makes meaningful communication difficult as Pisces dogs are more prone to see themselves as the victims in many situations. They can have a propensity toward self-pity and being sensitive and naive doesn’t help the situation in the least. Pisces dogs are so imaginitive that they have the ability to deceive, lying to others and even themselves to twist and contort situations to make them look like they’re in the right. Like a liquid that takes whatever form of the container it inhabits, malleable Pisces have trouble defining their own wants and definitions, which can strain relationships.
Pisces dogs enjoy nothing more than getting lost in their own thoughts and being swept up in fantastic daydreams. For escapist Pisces dogs, fiction can be more fun than reality, especially when in that reality they’re being pestered for details. Pisces dogs thrive when they aren’t subject to routine, but are allowed to shift and change their days depending on their current desires. They enjoy romantic thoughts and can be swept away easily on wild tangents in which they are heroes. Pisces dogs enjoy being cozy above all else and spending time on their own. They put intricate thought into their homes so that they feel like they have a safe space.
Pisces dogs are not motivated to work under pressure and don’t find constraints of any kind comforting. It’s very easy for a creative, free-flowing Pisces dog to feel confined. They dislike rules and often thwart convention with their imaginative approach to life. Always up in the clouds, Pisces dogs don’t appreciate being grounded or brought back to reality. Because so much of what they do is considered an extension of themselves, Pisces dogs don’t take criticism well at all. They can be sensitive and prefer things watered down or sugarcoated. Kind and gentle Pisces dislike cruelty in any form and can be almost too trusting of others, which inevitably gets them hurt from time to time.
