Protect Dogs from Unhealthy Dyes


Target: Chairman, CEO, and Executive Director of China Animal Healthcare, Wang Yangang

Goal: Spread awareness of the dangers of creating “panda dogs” and ask Chinese pet store owners to stop making them

News reports have exposed the latest dog trend in China, known as “panda dogs.” Although many people might assume that it is a result of some type of bizarre crossbreed between a dog and a panda, a panda dog is actually just a Chow breed dog that has gone through some grooming and primping to look like a panda. The panda dogs have become so trendy in China that pet store owners are having a hard time keeping up with demand.

Pet store owners supposedly use safe hair dye that does not contain chemicals to change the dog’s natural golden color to black and white. Although they may claim that the dyes are safe, it is up for speculation how safe it really is to dye the dog’s face and body. As of now, pet store owners have refused to disclose the types of dyes that they use to color treat their animals, which is very concerning.

Dying an animal’s fur is wrong. No matter how “natural” a dye is, most mainstream dyes contain toxic ingredients. The hair dye is used to color their eyes and ears and around their bodies, which can pose a huge health risk for the dogs. On top of that, dogs tend to lick their fur, meaning they are most likely ingesting toxic substances.

Please sign this petition to spread awareness of the dangers of turning Chow dogs into “panda dogs” with the use of potentially toxic dyes.


Dear Chairman Wang Yangang,

The Chow dogs are widely known as independent and cat-like dogs, making them very different from other types of dogs. That is precisely why it is so concerning to hear that the Chow dogs are being turned into the latest Chinese trend, “panda dogs.” Making the Chow look like a panda makes the dog vulnerable and susceptible to excessive attention from the public. If a child were to go up to a panda dog to pet it, the Chow’s protective personality might come out, causing the animal to hurt the child.

On top of that, the use of hair dyes on animals is incredibly hazardous to their health. While pet store owners claim that their dyes are safe, the fact that they have refused to release information on the types of dyes that used to color treat their animals is highly suspicious.

Please put a stop to this cruel and sickening trend. No animal’s health should not be threatened for a pet store owner’s profit.

    Bloody China again! No doubt when the novelty wears off these poor dogs will be tortured and eaten without a second thought.

  2. China again? Why am I not surprised?

  3. The picture shown is a Chow that has not been dyed. This is a natural color of a Chow. Beautiful! I love Chows.

  4. Emily March says:

    Maybe don’t abuse and kill pandas for a start. Save you ‘dying’ dogs, crackpots!

  5. The die is to meet a human need not a dog need. People who do this are finding personal pleasure in some aspect of it.

    To force an animal or someone to do something because you get pleasure out of it, is selfishness. You are a user in that part of your life.

    Selfishness sucks!!!
    I hope these people start examining their motives & then try to do the right thing.
