Celebrate the Lunar Year of the Dog

In the Chinese zodiac, each year relates to a specific animal, according to a 12-year cycle. The dog occupies the eleventh position in the Chinese zodiac, after the rooster, and before the pig, and years of the dog include 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, and 2030. People who are born in the year of the dog are perceived to be honest, loyal, smart, and friendly. In Chinese element theory, each zodiac sign is also associated with one of the five elements: gold or metal, wood, water, fire, and earth. Those born in 1958 and 2018 are known as Earth Dogs, and are thought to be communicative, serious, and responsible in work. The Mongol Bankhar breed is a unique landrace of livestock protection dogs native to the Mongolian Steppe. Dating back thousands of years, Bankhar dogs have continued to perform a critical role—interceding between endangered predator species, such as snow leopards, and Mongolian herding families.
