As the Cardinal Earth Sign, Capricorn is known to be the most patient and responsible of all of the zodiac signs. Thus Capricorn is good with pretty much any pet, so long as they have help caring for it. Capricorn is a workaholic, so a dog that needs to be let out every hour is not always the best option. Capricorn can usually afford to hire someone to help out with that, but may be better served finding a pet that doesn't require so much attention. Overall however, Capricorn is not all that picky over what furry friend they bring into the home, so long as there is someone available to take care of it.

Dogs are a man's best friend, and they are to Capricorn as well. Capricorn appreciates the loyal and predictability of dogs, and find them to be wonderful friends. Capricorn is not picky when it comes to pure bred or mixed, so really any dog will do for Capricorn. Smaller dogs are not their favorite, but will certainly provide the right companionship for Capricorn when needed. Larger dogs that are family friendly are enjoyed by Capricorn. As well, breeds that are higher in intelligence and are known to be good work dogs will be appreciated by Capricorn as well. Capricorn likes to be outside in almost any weather. This is yet another reason why Caps and dogs really do become best friends very quickly.

Capricorn is another one of the zodiac signs that will develop a unique connection with any horse they bring into the family. Capricorn is also successful enough to afford one, most of the time. What practical Capricorn appreciates about horses is that they are useful for so many purposes, from transportation to recreation to emotional bonding when the need arises. Capricorn will need to have someone on hand to ensure that their beloved pet is well taken care of. Unless Capricorn is in the horse business, then of course that wouldn't be a problem.

Rabbits are always great pets for the Earth Signs because they have a natural love for dirt and the Earth that Capricorn will really appreciate. Rabbits also have a higher intelligence that Capricorns will pick up on right away. This is another pair bond in this pet compatibility where a unique communication will develop between pet and human. Both of these species are drawn to Mother Earth, and this bond will develop a psychic connection on some levels that allows them both to grow and evolve spiritually. Rabbits can also be taken outside in the summer or warmer temperatures, which Capricorn will really enjoy.
