China: Dog-Rickshaw Cruelty

Dogs in China are being made to work as canine-rickshaws, where they suffer ongoing brutalization and cruel treatment. Wearing a metal contraption jammed onto their snout, as a steering mechanism, individual dogs have to carry the weight of the male adult driver, and adult passengers, often accompanied with children.

Malnutrition-ed dogs are driven into the ground as their forced to pull heavy weights beyond their ability. Dogs strain and quickly succumb to illness and before long, they’re of no use to their owner. The dog is then at high risk of being slaughtered for dog meat., pet centric, #fightdogmeat

China: poor dog enslaved into cruelty and brutality and forced to be a dog-taxi-car.

Last month I traveled across China for the fourth time. It is so very easy for dogs and cats to be cruelly abused in China. There’s no animal protection laws and these people answer to no-one.

Take a look at this dog’s face (above): his snout is bound in wire, and the ‘reins’ are attached to his face-contraption. A heavy wire also travels up between his eyes, across the top of his skull. As the reins are hauled on to get his attention, the wire contraption pushes up against the dog’s eyes, and into into flesh. It must be very painful for the wire to compress against the dog’s nose, which is one of the most sensitive parts of a dog’s body., pet centric, #fightdogmeat

China: another dog-rickshaw acting as a taxi car.

Its all very well for vendors to dress up their rickshaws with flowers and bright fabrics, but a little dog is still forced to tow it around, until he drops and doesn’t get up again.

When he goes down in exhaustion, injury or sheer despair, he will be thrown to the side, and replaced with another poor soul., pet centric, #fightdogmeat

More evidence of dog rickshaws in China.

VIDEO: small dog forced to carry his lazy owner around the town. Because this dog belongs to the man, he can do whatever he likes to his dog; no matter how cruel.


Fight Dog Meat is working hard to help local animal rescuers bring in animal protection laws; which will benefit all species of animals. We work directly with local Chinese animal rescue teams and animal lovers.

    They know dogs can be taught to pull carts and they at their bodies? That’s unacceptable! China needs to go.

    You treat animals like trash, so that’s makes you trash, animals are not your disposal they are living beings who feel pain and sorrow. You need to make harsh punishments to animal abusers,

    This is incredibly inhumane and backward. I would expect more from China. I will be boycotting Chinese made products and will ask others to do so as well. How can we support a Country that treats it’s most vulnerable this way? Truly disgusting.
