The name Fu Dogs are actually derived chinese
"foh" (recited in chinese as Buddha) because these beings
are found as stone mounting guardians at Buddhist temples. They
are considered sacred in Buddhism, where most deities are depicted
sitting on it. It is the emblem of wisdom, power and protection,
which could be the reason why they are being embroidered on ancient
chinese official robes. These powerful guardians are fun to own
like a lovely pair of real dogs at our homes and are easy to tame.
This powerful symbol provides potent protection and demon scaring
for ancient palaces, banks, mansions, shops, malls, businesses,
hotels and jewellery shops. Their faces may look like lions, but
take note that they are different from the actual lions. The male
is usually depicted holding a ball to signify important global
network for business people outside and external protection, while
the female holding a child signifies protection of members of
the household or premise. The male is placed on the left (from
inside looking out of your premise) and the female holding a child
is placed on the right (from inside looking out of your premise).

Ancient legend revealed that the Fu Dogs produce
milk from their paws and enjoyed sporting with hollow balls. Therefore,
ancient people place hollow balls in the jungle in hope of them
leaving some milk onto the hollow balls. This is the reason why
many chinese artpieces would show two Fu Dogs playing with the
hollow balls. And these two Fu Dogs actually have the same significance
as the two supreme Dragons playing with the pearl.
The Fu Dogs are popularly known as defender of
law and protector of buildings. The Fu Dogs provide ultimate protection,
wards of evil spirits and harmful people, nourishes chi that enters
homes, bring in happy blessings and dissolves bad chi from neighbourly
formations when placed in front of your main door at either sides
or raised high up on both sides of your main gate.
Place a pair of the Fu Dogs at the door front
on either sides if the door is facing the lift, stairs or escalator
to dissolve rushing bad chi. They can be placed on floor level
or raised to higher level.
