They only look like baby pandas .
These little bundles of joy are actually chow chow dogs that have been
dyed black-and-white to look like pandas.
Dyeing pets has been a trend in pet pampering for quite some time. At last summer's Pets Show Taipei , there was a fierce dog-dyeing competition. Check out photos .
But dyeing your pets to look like other wild animals is a more recent development.
The trend demonstrates how quickly and dramatically attitudes toward pets — particularly dogs — have changed in many parts of Asia.
Tiger or retriever? You be the judge
If you did that in the USofA, you'd get arrested for animal abuse!
Then, we had better be prepared to arrest all of the beauticians in America. At least 25% of the american public engages in this barbaric hair/fur dying ritual....let's get real people.
People have a choice. Dogs don't!
Sobaka, and people care how they look and dogs don't. I think I dog is going to be real upset having to go through an hour or so of rubbing and attention to get dyed.
Just b/c we choose to put ourselves thru the process doesn't mean we have the right to inflict it on others. Animals and children should be off-limits to this sort of thing. I'm sure dyeing the fur around an animal's eyes is painful and scary. It's just wrong.
Do dogs have a choice not to live with their owner? Why are dogs on leash in the U.S.A? That's animal cruelty too. We should let dogs do whatever they want to do, including eating American babies. LOL.
Clearly we need to stop this terrible practice. I propose we just nuke the Chinese babies to prevent it from happening in the future. We should also kill the puppies so they don't get dyed with this toxic stuff. Problem. Solved.
In the US I've seen seniors dye their french poodles with a pink or blue tinge to match their owners' hair. I wouldn't be too surprised if the dog-show crowd all give their contestants a bit of color 'help' before the show. No need to get upset about this.
CUTE! I will do that to my pet!
Americans do this to pets all the time. Dog salons will cut, perm, straighten, and dye pet's hair no problem. Haven't you ever seen those stupid pink poodle cuts? You can get dyed baby chickens around Easter too. None of it harms the animal, in fact getting a bath is probably more traumatizing. It's a harmless craze; what's with all the hysteria?!?
the hysteria is due to this being done in china, where everything the people do is wrong and barbaric no matter if it's being done in other places in the world... it's called a double standard.
No, you actually wouldn't get arrested in the US. Applying dye to your pet's fur isn't hardly a case of abuse compared to some of the things that ARE perfectly legal in the US. For example, getting your dog's ears altered so they stand up straight or removing a cat's claws so they don't scratch up your furniture. A pet doesn't have that choice in the matter plus it's painful.....but yet it's legal in the US. So I'd stop being so proud about how well we treat pets in the US. I honestly doubt it's that uncomfortable for a dog to get its fur dyed anyway.
Cropping and docking is not all that painful.
Docking the tails is done usually before the pup is 3 days old and the nerves are not finished developing. As for the cropping of the ears, it is a surgical procedure, done under anesthetics. My pups are playing the day of the surgery, with no troubles at all.
Are you people who are condemning a historical procedure circumsized or doing so to your sons? Piercing your baby daughters ears? Get over it.
Instead of going after things you obviously know nothing about, why not focus your energy on actual animal abuse such as puppymills, chaining dogs in yards to trees 24/7, dog fighting and other serious and very real issues.
一味地去寻求一些根本不了解的事实，不如把精力放在谴责真正虐待动物的行为，比如说“动物繁殖工厂”（注：美国人爱狗，所以美国有上万家的宠物店，每年出售超过一百万只小狗。货源从何而来？其实许多来自“小狗工厂”（Puppy Mills）。“小狗工厂”中所有的狗终其一生都被关在笼内，活着只为一直生育，而当这些狗年纪大到不能再生育、或有瑕疵卖不出去，也就是失去利用价值时，就被遗弃一旁，任由他们自生自灭）以及 “斗狗”行为，还有其他一些严重虐待动物而且真正存在的事实上。
Susan, there is a huge anti-circumcision movement in the U.S. now and many people choose not to pierce their girls' ears.
If people did this in the USofA, Americans would say cute and creative.
Actually, I would look at the title and say "WTF?" then when I see the pictures, id say "aww, so cute."
其实。。。我一看这题目，第一反应“WHAT A FUCK?”（什么玩意儿），再一看图片，心里想“哇哦哦，好可爱”。
It is animal abuse!
hahaha yes, but they look funny
I thought dogs were color blind....? Do they care?
Dogs like attention, just like women who color their own hair.
