Dog Born Without Eyes Is Victim of China's Red Poodle Fad
"This sad, sad story reminds me of the tragic consequences when animals are seen as fashionable fads rather than living creatures warranting our love and attention. According to China's Tapei Times, the Kaohisung Concern for Stray Animals Association recently received a call from a man who needed help. His poodle, had given birth to a litter. One of the puppies—a coveted “red” poodle—was born with no eyes. The man couldn’t care for the handicapped pup, and didn’t want breeders to get their hands on the dog, fearing they would simply keep using her for breeding, resulting in more animals being born blind or having other birth defects." - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
And this is why I have always been a mutt-adopter. I don't want animals with pedigrees. I want happy healthy animals that could use a good home. - Hookuh Tinypants
that is just so sad! Beyond the pup herself, poor thing, the thought that she might be a desireable brood mare? The core sickness of humanity just kicks me int he gut sometimes. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
