So your dog is a Scorpio and you probably know that, as Scorpios tend to be the most intense of all the signs. Scorpio dogs love a good challenge and are strong, impassioned dogs who fight for what they believe in (and their right to believe in it). Scorpio dogs are intelligent and ambitious, and their inner machinations are incredibly complex.
Scorpio dogs can be zealous and calculating; if wronged, a Scorpio dog will not immediately lash out, but will truly serve their revenge cold and at the optimum moment for effect. So if you scold a Scorpio dog in January, just know that surprise in your shoe in March has been a long time coming. Scorpio dogs are curious and motivated and certainly make for interesting pets who never quit and take you along for the ride.

At their best, Scorpio dogs are extremely hard workers with a passion that moves just about everyone around them to work at their pace. Scorpio dogs finish what they start and never quit a task before it's done. They are intelligent about many topics and can contribute to nearly any conversation or task — from leashes to treats. Scorpio dogs aren't shy but they don't necessarily make friends just to have them; they are selective and hold fellow pups and humans up to their exacting standards. When you become a Scorpio's true friend, they will protect you with everything they have — and you will feel very lucky to have them by your side. Scorpio dogs view obstacles as challenges and love coming up with long-term solutions to better their lives (and consequently those of the people around them).
At their worst, Scorpio dogs can toe the dark side. Their hard work and determination can easily slip away into zealotry and fanaticism. It is very difficult to stop or even impede a Scorpio's progress, so in these cases, very little can be done to contain a Scorpio on a warpath. Scorpio dogs are reticent to provide insight into their thinking and often keep their cards close to their chest. Because Scorpios are cool and reserved, they can use their cunning to manipulate situations in their favor. They can be considered quite dangerous, as unlike their fire sign friends, they calculate their revenge and don't always clue their targets in on the fact that they're plotting something. Scorpio dogs can be possessive over what they consider theirs and don't particularly like sharing.
Seeing what makes others tick
Scorpio dogs are uncommonly perceptive and can deduce the true meaning of things with very little effort. That's why they don't like false appearances or mind games as they can see through them quickly and don't like having their time wasted. Scorpio dogs gravitate to real people (and pups) who have no problem tackling the truth and facing things head on as they come. Ruled by the (former) planet Pluto, they enjoy mysteries and pulling them apart. They are brave souls who maintain long-term friendships with people who have proven themselves to be trustworthy and who aren't sensitive. Scorpio dogs love teasing and ribbing their friends and prefer to hang around others who can take the joke.
Revealing too much
Scorpio dogs have very little time for timid people or animals who don't want to dive into life's challenges head first. You won't find a Scorpio dog pawing the water to test the temperature, you'll find a Scorpio dog at the top of the cliff, ready to dive in. Scorpio dogs love active people with vibrant personalities and have very little time for wishy-washy, indecisive types. Scorpio dogs never offer everything up all at once and believe that trust should not only be built, but earned. They don't tolerate dishonest people as they have an uncanny ability to identify and avoid falseness of character. They don't share easily, but when they do, you should have absolute confidence that you're the chosen one and this doesn't just happen to everyone.
