Proverb for October: Barking dogs seldom bite.
Google Translation: 吠える犬はめったに噛みません
According to idioms.com  this English proverb refers to a dog that is busy barking and therefore cannot bite. There is apparently a similar Chinese phrase, zhǐlǎohǔ, literally meaning “paper tiger”.   This means that something may appear to be powerful but is actually quite weak.
