China – Dye your Pet to Look like a Wild Animal

The Chinese are spending thousands of dollars dyeing domestic animals to look like wild animals or exotic wildlife. How far would a person go to satisfy their need to have exotic pets? Perhaps an exotic pet that is impossible to have because of laws, availability, or the capacity to care for rare exotic wildlife that have very explicit needs. Where is that fine line between right or wrong? What started this craze? Is it a growing fad?

Golden Labrador Retrievers groomed and dyed to look like a tiger. Panda bears are a popular choice. Heading to the really bizarre are perfectly rational animals groomed, dressed, and dyed to look like a fairy princess. As far as I am concerned the people putting their pets through these procedures are totally unfounded. Come on…animals have dignity! Then again, in China and many other countries dog can be found on restaurant menu. Imagine the conditions these animals are subjected to waiting for slaughter.

Why would anyone want to put a beloved pet through these procedures? A pet isn’t something to be shown off, it is an animal you love, a part of your family. Animals are not an object or decorative item. The animals have their fur cut and sculptured. The dye jobs take hours – it is a multi-level procedure.

I’m curious if some of these groomers are using an anesthesia to make the animal easier to work on. How many of you have given a dog a complicated trim? They don’t particularly like to hold still for a short trim let alone a long a drawn-out long process; just to look like camels, pandas, tigers, white tigers, leopards, and an assortment of other artist renderings of who know what. Instead of the flavor of the month, what is the popular exotic pet of the month?

Take a look at the Chinese dyed animal images Dyeing their animals to look like wild animals or exotic animals, just to have animals that look like exotic pets. Create your own exotic pets? Chinese dyed animal pictures.

Dyeing animals certainly isn’t something new, there are thousands of grooming shops around the world offering such services. These are using a dye that eventually washes off. It is also typically one to a few colors. Taking this to such an extreme is disturbing. Also, how safe are the dyes used in China and other countries throughout the world? Are they toxic? Could the latest craze in China lead to more extreme methods, such as surgical?

What do you think of this growing trend? Do you think it will spread to other countries? Do you find it crazy, outrageous, or fun? In your opinion, is it a good time to get your endorsements to take advantage of this million dollar craziness!
