Panda Dogs a Hit in China
May 20, 2014 news

Check out these adorable Chow dogs dressed as pandas. Apparently these pets are the new craze in China. Buyers even bring them back every 6 weeks to keep up on the panda-style coloring and grooming.

It does seem like a hassle, but they sure are cute. Thankfully, the dye used is not harmful to the animals.

‘Ten years ago the natural instinct of a Chinese person was to eat a dog,’ he said. ‘Now we are like westerners and want one as a companion.’ Hsin admitted he used a bit of trickery to make the chow dogs appear like pandas. He added: ‘With a bit of careful grooming and colouring it is easy to turn a chow into a panda dog in about two hours. ‘Then the look will stay with the dog for around six weeks and the owners bring them back for some touching up.’
