Say you acquired a previously owned dog, and you don't know when he was born. How can you learn his astrological sign? See if it matches one of these whimsical personality profiles offered by Leslie Traill and Joni Mountford, authors of What's Your Sign? Astrological Tips for Dogs (Cosmic Critters, 1996).

Aries (March 21-April 19): Better take your iron pills to keep up with this dog. An Aries canine is Indiana Jones in a dog collar - an adventurous traveler.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): The Taurus pet loves food - except the canine variety. He'll eat you out of house and home but will pay you with undying loyalty and affection.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): This energetic puppy knows the dogcatcher on a first-name basis. It's not a reflection on you; he just has to be free. An intelligent, entertaining dog.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): If Toto wasn't a Cancer, Dorothy certainly was. "There's no place like home" is Cancer's motto. These homebodies also love food.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): A dog with an attitude, Leo loves the limelight and is a good performer. Mundane dog activities, such as "fetch" or "shake" are way beneath this king of the hill.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Does the term "anal retentive" apply to your dog? If so, he or she may be a Virgo. Felix Unger would love this neatnik, who prefers human company to that of other dogs, who are much too messy, anyway.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Other dogs will fawn over your handsome Libra, but your hopeless romantic won't know how to deal with them. The neighborhood peacekeepers, Libras are stymied when it comes to decision-making.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Intuitive and imaginative, Scorpio pets are highly intelligent. Yet they have a vindictive streak, so be careful! These are one-owner dogs - you're stuck with yours, for life.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Moss doesn't grow on this rolling stone. The Sagittarian needs freedom and space. A crate just won't do. Exercise your little hobo if you want him to be happy.
