Dog eating still takes place in parts of China, and because it has an enormous human population, the number of dogs being consumed could still be very high. However, the fact such a large, public event that is also extremely cruel could be banned speaks to somewhat of a shift in attitude towards canines. As more and more Chinese experience middle class incomes, they are keeping dogs as pets. Some of them had eaten dog meat years ago, but now they are repulsed by the practice. About 120,000 pet dogs live in the city of Shenzen. One local resident, who owns a golden retriever said, “I have eaten dog meat, once when I was young. But now I could never eat dog meat. When others eat dog meat I also tell them they shouldn’t. When you really understand dogs you could never eat their meat. You could never be so cruel to your most loyal friend. ” (Source:
