New Chinese Trend Involves Dyeing Dogs to Look Like Wild Animals

Thanks to a bizarre new practice in China, you can have your very own Hobbes character! Well, kinda.

A recent development in China involves taking ordinary dogs and dyeing their fur to make them resemble wild animals. For example, chow chows have dyed black and white to resemble pandas, while retrievers have been dyed to resemble tigers.

Chinese-domesticated animal relations have come a long way since the days of cooking and eating canines. Now instead of eating dogs, people are entering them in competitions, such as the dog dyeing competition at Pets Show Taipei.

Of course, the consumption of dog is still a common practice in some areas of China and the rest of Asia, and still drawing the ire of animal rights groups around the world. No word yet on dyeing dogs to look like wild animals, but it seems about as bad as dressing them in Halloween costumes.


Would you dye your dog .........

Chinese Dogs Get a Colorful Makeover

Is pet grooming going to the dogs in China?

That statement is up for debate as folks witness a recent fashion trend emerging from Wuhan, Hubei province, where women are queuing up their pets for a strange new dyeing fad.

Thus, in accordance with this new trend, pet owners want their pets to sport wild and bright colors. The result is an embarrassed-looking dog whose fur has been dyed with a variety of clashing hues.

One dog ended up with a yellow head and lush green body while another equally unlucky poodle donned the colors of the rainbow.

Interestingly enough, Chinese is also putting together an animal protection law so as to ensure that pets are not abused by their owners.

Those proposing the protection law appear determined to pinpoint irresponsible pet owners since the law also pushes for data chip implantation on pets.

If this law is passed, anyone violating animals rights will pay a hefty amount (upto 6,00 yuan) as well as serve a two-week prison time.
