Fu Dogs – Temple Lions placement

Fu Dogs and Chi Lin’s placement

Fu Dogs and Chi Lin’s are an extremely powerful protection for your home or business; you will find most buildings in Asia accompanied by a pair either inside or outside. Out of all the cures and enhancers in Feng Shui, Fu Dogs along with Chi Lins in our opinion are the most essential. They come in all shapes and sizes and some of the homes I have visited all over the world display some of the most magnificent pairs I have seen especially the ones in Asia and of course I have seen some pretty impressive pairs outside the local Chinese restaurants.

Probably the most impressive are from the Beijing’s Forbidden City as shown below, these are really amazing to see.

They are also known as guardian Lions, lion dogs, or temple lions. We consult on thousands of homes and business each year and around 70% will have Fu Dogs either placed by the door or windowsills, I would also say that 50% are placed in the wrong order, check below for confirmation.

Where to place a pair of Fu Dogs or Chi Lins in 2012?

For protection in 2012 you should place a pair of Chi Lins or Fu Dogs in the northeast especially if you have a main door in this location. You will find many variations of Fu Dogs and Chi Lin’s on web sites, some will have a ball under one paw others will have a Cub under another paw, the most important thing to remember is the order placement and not which foot the ball or cub is under.

The male lion, holding a ball under his left or right paw should be placed on the left side (as you are looking out of a door or window).

The female lion, holding a cub under her right or left paw is placed on the right side.

Chi Lin’s in 2012 are an extremely potent enhancer and cure is for the wealth #9 star that has flown into the northeast and if activated with a pair of male and female chi lin’s it can be very good for wealth, career and business although you must use only male and female chi lin’s and most pairs bought will come as identical pairs so please be careful placing if you do not have a gender pair. The best way to check is, as you look at them, the one on the right hand side should have a ball under his feet; the ball represents the world and this one is the male. The other left hand one will have either an ingot or cub under her foot this one is the female.

Chi lin’s are renowned for protection of wealth and against bad luck and the creator of wealth and good fortune and why we had this combination created. Made from resin and looks like Cochin ceramic, each hand painted to a very high quality, standing on a wooden plinth. They should be placed in the northeast in 2012 or placed looking onto a main door or a windowsill looking into the room. Every home and business should have this powerful and most beautiful cure and enhancer and should be placed in a home or office.

  1. I have a fu dog but it has both feet on one ball and I did not have a pair with it and I was just wondering what was the meaning for it and where should I put it in my house it looks like it has fish scale, claws and two horns

    I received a female foo dog that belonged to my uncle who passed in January. Is having one vs the pair ok? Where should i place her in my home?

      Hi Lana,

      Fu Dogs should always be displayed in pairs as they offer support for each other and to place one on their own would signify a lack of support and strength so I would not recommend placing the Fu Dog alone. Sorry if this is not the answer you were hoping for Lana.

      Kind regards,
