The dogs are not very well at imparting conversations and this sets them back while expressing their thoughts and feelings to others. This lack of quality makes other people think that they are stubborn people. Dogs are good natured by birth and that keeps them away from dishonest and criminal gains. All they want is a quiet life and a good family to cherish the desired life with, and therefore they never clutter their minds with the ugliness and evil around them. The flaws of the dogs are getting agitated easily and getting irritated. They are faithful, honest and sincere people who respect tradition, enjoy helping others and value honor. Dogs are the righteous ones who speak up against injustice without any hesitation. They are good at listening but not that good at socializing with others, thus they rarely shine within the company, but they are quite intelligent. Dogs are people on whom you can close your eyes and count on and in return they'll never let you truth tumble.
