The Dog is the eleventh of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Monkey, Rooster and Dog were in another country, helping a god defeat evil spirits. After, they set off to the party together. Because they arrived at the same time, the Jade Emperor went by the order they met the god in the other country. Thus, Dog became eleventh.

Recent years of the Dog are: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018

The Dog is also associated with the Earthly Branch and the hours 7–9 in the evening. In the terms of yin and yan, the Dog is yang.

In China, it is still popular to name dogs Wàng Cái. It means “prosperous wealth” and comes from dogs’ barking sounds.
