The character of the Chinese Fire Dog

The element of Fire makes Dogs more dynamic and able to identify opportunities or even to create them. It’s unique for Dogs to be this way because while courageous and honest, they still aren’t that good at taking initiative.

It’s just that they sometimes simply don’t have the determination to chase their ideals. At least they know a good opportunity when they see it.

When it comes to how they live their life, find out these natives are nothing but honest and highly energetic. But they can be too reserved and not that attached to people.

It’s possible they’ll grow to be dependent on others, this being their main weakness. Because they want fame, some of them will manage to get it around their thirties.

When it comes to work, Fire Dogs are known to finish their projects as long as they have a passion for what they are doing. Their relationships determine their success, so it’s essential they pay more attention to those they don’t like so much.

If they will do something related to art, they have all the chances to become successful and famous.

On the other hand, Fire element makes them more impulsive. These natives don’t mind taking risks whether in love or their career. But they will work hard to get what they want, so their harsh nature won’t stay in their way.

Another thing that Fire brings them is their spirit of adventure. While the rest of the Dogs don’t like being far away from home and dealing with the unknown, the Fire ones love to travel and to experiment.

Not to mention it’s more difficult for them to settle and have a quiet life. One great thing about this element’s influence over them is that it reduces their famous pessimism.

Because Dogs have high ideals, they expect everyone to live by their norms and beliefs. But as soon as they realize the world is different, they get discouraged and become as cynical as they can be.

It can’t be said they’re too hard on themselves, but they surely commit to great causes and fight for their morals with everything they have.

Those of the opposite sex will be very attracted to them because they have a magnetism and a sexy aura that can’t be seen in others. Passionate and protective lovers, they can resist in any relationship for a long time, if they decide to settle.

No one should try to change their beliefs and principles, or they’ll start to become defensive. And they don’t just make threats, they really take action when they need to get vengeful.

While friendly and charming like other Dogs, they are also very independent and strong in spirits. These people like to dream and they usually attain their goals, which wins them the respect of others.
