raccoon dog, not wolf dog – the ones they kill in China for their fur – I think that is what this animal is
Tanuki or raccoon dog. Native to Japan
This is a raccoon dog. From the Wiki entry for this animal:
Oh darn, I was going to say “Pitbull”. Or maybe “Tan and Tab Golden Retriever”. But then I’ve read MAS’s descriptions too long…
“Pitbull” would have been acceptable, as always. “Tan and tab” animals are on a case by case basis.
I thought it was a Badger.
this is a raccoon dog, and they are indigenous to China. Their fur is used in “fashion”. Recently, on a petition site, I came across a petition against the use of raccoon dog fur by Marc Jacobs on some of his designs. I think they are considered part of the dog family, not that that should make a difference. No animal should be used for it’s fur…
Well, whatever they are called, it’s UNcalled for to kill them for their fur! What an outrage! They look so peaceful and serene.. and very sweet.. but leave it to China to go kill a beautiful animal for it’s fur in the name of “fashion”… they all SUCK if you ask me. Food is another thing, especially the ones God put on this earth to feed us way back when they didn’t know any better, but for fashion, LET ME UP! These people will rot in hell for this. Just my humble opinion…………
