The current article is an attempt to examine the Chinese popular phraseology with dog motifs from the point of view of how Chinese proverbs and sayings make use of the motif mentioned as a) - a metaphor or b) - a phraseological symbol. Between the symbolics of the dog in Chinese traditional and popular culture there is sometimes a significant difference, the dog as a symbol in phraseology can be classified mainly as an ambivalent symbol, in spite of the prevailing positive symbolics in various areas of traditional culture.
