Buddha’s tame lion would “follow his heels like a faithful dog”, according to the legend. According to an oft-repeated legend, this is no ordinary lion. Long ago a lion fell in love with a marmoset. The disparity in their sizes made this an impossible love, so the heart-sore lion asked Ah Chu, the protector of animals, to shrink him down to the size of a marmoset so that the two animals could marry. Only his heart remained its original size. From this union, the Lion Dog (Fu Lin) was born. With the spread of Buddhism to China, the status of Fu Dogs were elevated during the reign of Emperor Zhangdi of the Eastern Han Dynasty due to the religion’s high regard for them. Therefore, you will find the fu dog statues abundantly available in the chinese palace and the emperors consider breeding pekingese dogs as the real form of fu dogs. With the power to drive away evil, Fu Dogs are popularly known as the defender of law and protector of homes. Fu Dogs provide ultimate protection from theft and robbery, wards of evil spirits and harmful people, nourishes chi that enters homes, bring in happy blessings and dissolves bad chi from neighbourly formations. If you are staying in an apartment, you may also display them if your entrance 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. It is seen as the symbol of power and strength because of its ability to eat up the tiger and leopard besides having the ability to suppress and expel evil forces. Two Fu Dogs where one of them is playing with a bagua ball and the other one playing with a taichi ball actually have the same significance as the two supreme piyaos or chilins playing with the dragon’s pearl. This special significance made their place not just to guard at the vicinity of doors, but can also be brought into inner sections of the home as supreme pets. They are also suitable to guard at your work desks in your office or sitting on console tables behind you. They are especially excellent in remedying Violent Star #7.

What Fu Dogs symbolize and how to place this object?
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 ancient guardians have been used as potent protectors in imperial palaces, homes of high officials and rich merchants. 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. In usual designs, 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 premises).
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.
We have seen many success stories of business people, high ranking politicians and important people whom have told us how their grand pair of the Fu Dogs brought them remarkable results in their premises (homes or shops or business buildings). They prevent robbery/theft, ward off harmful people, bring in more good fortune/ better sales and improve the feng shui of entrances.
