Temple Lions or FU Dogs have been around since the creation of Buddhism, also known as FU dogs.
These dogs are rather like our own domestic dogs in the fact that they are super loyal and that they protect us with their lives.
They are also an integral part of the lives of those that practice Feng Shui.
Often the pair is guarding entrance ways of important government buildings or wealthy homes.
