Misty this is a Fu Dog.
Chinese guardian lions, also called a Fu Lions, lions of Buddha, or sometimes stone lions (獅子, Pinyin: Shíshī) in Chinese art, is a common representation of the lion in pre-modern China, which is believed to have powerful mythic protective powers that has traditionally stood in front of Chinese Imperial palaces, temples, emperors' tombs, government offices, and the homes of government officials and the wealthy from the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 AD), until the end of the empire in 1911.
There are Fu/Foo Dogs in real life also, but unfortunately I don't have a picture of one.
