Giant Foo Dog of the Forbidden City Sculpture
I bought a set of the foo dogs last January 27, 2014 (only a year ago) for $349.00. The description of the item said that these dogs were "weather resistant. I live in Morgan Hill, CA where it does not even snow and the weather has not been that cold either. But last month, only 13 months after buying the items, one of the dogs head cracked. Also, only a few months after the purchase, the vase paint has bubbled and fallen off. I did not care about that part, but I do care about the head that severely cracked and the other is about to do the same.
This item is very expensive and does not even fit the description of resisting weather. Let's see how Toscano helps me with this....

Looks like a museum quality piece.
We purchased this as a gift for our father's 90th to replace a foo dog that had been broken. He is proudly displaying this one at his front door and patting its head every time he enters and exits his condo. Couldn't have been a bigger hit!

It is lite-weight for its size.
This good sized statue guards entry to my meditation garden. It looks like stone, but is easy to move. I am hoping that it will not be easily damaged if bumped.

Perfect in my Garden
I ordered two Foo Dogs to go along with the Budda I have placed them in the Garden. Easy to care for. Water hose them down and they clean right up. I was very surprised they can stand up to our very hot California sun without breaking, splitting or fading. Good Quality. Love it!!

This product has great details
The pair of Foo Dogs I order has very good details. I was very happy that I brought this pair. The pricing as reasonable, I was amazed with the discount I received online. I have no problem with the delivery time, I was impressed on how fast it delivered.

This product looks like plastic.
I purchased 2 of these dogs. They look good in the catalog, that's why I bought them, but when you see them in person they look cheap and very lite. They are not no 28 pounds each. The product quality is very poor, it looks like plastic up close. It does not meet my expectations I thought they be more realistic than they are. It Is not worth it that's my opinion. But on the plus side it is very well packed in the box. Rocky
