CHINESE ZODIAC SIGN OF
DOG

Those born under the Eastern Zodiac sign of Dog are respectful, helpful, and sincere. Dogs are great listeners who are always there for those they care about. This is a very loyal and faithful sign and one who can be counted on to always have your back or keep your darkest secrets. Dogs are true humanitarians at heart. They long to see the world live up to their ideals and are easily upset by acts of injustice. It is true that Dogs care more about people than they do about money, power, or success.

One of Dog’s greatest strengths is being able to inspire confidence in other people. They are often the “rock” that stands when others can’t or won’t, always there to lend a helping hand.




For all of the responsibility that Dogs put on themselves it’s no surprise that they tend to get stressed out easily. Dogs are often anxious, restless, and worried. They feel the weight of the world on their backs and have trouble relaxing when so much is wrong with society. Dogs can get so obsessed with their idea of justice that they can become dogmatic and take things too seriously all of the time. This defensive, judgmental side of the Dog stems from giving too much of themselves. Dogs need to realize that they must take care of themselves first if they are going to have anything to offer others.

There are 12 Primal Zodiac signs for the Eastern Zodiac sign of Dog, one for each sign of the Western Zodiac. If you don’t know your Western Zodiac sign you can use this chart to find your Primal Zodiac sign, which contains both Eastern and Western signs.
