Overview
Originating in China, this versatile breed was utilied for herding, hunting, sledding, as as watchdogs.

The Chinese Foo is the mascot of the oldest secret sect in the world known as the Tongs which believe the Chinese Foo brings good luck.

An energetic, hardy, and bold breed, the Chinese Foo resembles the look of a lion. They are sturdy, compact, and squarely-built. They possess great dignity and exhibit a regal and dignified appearance.
Temperament
The Chinese Foo is not recommended for first time dog owners. This breed is friendly, devoted, and courageous. They are mild-mannered and docile, yet assertive when necessary. They are suspicious of strangers and will defend their family, property, and territory when threatened. Chinese Foo's are family oriented and thrive on attention and interaction. They do well with children, dogs, and other household pets they have been raised with.
Care
The Chinese Foo requires brushing on a regular and consistent basis. Bathing should be done when necessary. This breed has no known health issues.
Coat
The Chinese Foo has a weather-resistant double coat. The outer coat is thick, off-standing, coarse, and straight. The under coat is soft and dense.
Training
The Chinese Foo is intelligent and quick to learn. Early socialization and obedience are required. This breed is often difficult to manage and is domineering. Chinese Foo's will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with respect, firmness, fairness, and consistency.
Activity
The Chinese Foo breed will do well in a city or apartment environment provided they are sufficiently exercised and mentally stimulated. They do best with a securely fenced yard or safe rural setting where they are able to play off-lead.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Chinese Foo Dog puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

My Female Chinese Foo had the best and most mellow personality. She was very accepting and good with my niece and other kids. She did not have a high energy level, but loved to go on mile long walks and was great on road trips. I had mine for fourteen years and would like to have another. Hope that helps!
