2018 is the Year of the Dog according to the Chinese zodiac. … The Chinese Zodiac, known as Sheng Xiao, is based on a twelve-year cycle, related to an animal sign. These signs are the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.

Years of the Dog include 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, and 2030… If you’re born in a Dog year, you’re a Dog, and the following are deemed lucky for you:

  • Lucky numbers: 3, 4, 9
