Sammy the liondog
Sammy is a rare species that exists in china, known as The Chinese Foo-Dog. He grew up in a forest away from mankind, with his small pack. The ancient Chinese calls them guardian lions, due to their mythical ways of protecting the good, punishing the bad. They're also known to fiercely protect their forests and lands, along with ancient wonders in China. It's also extremely rare to actually find a living one, but those who have either have a wonderful story to tell, or a horrifying one.
