I can't stand when people overfeed their dogs. I've seen it a lot with beagles. I want to put them all on a diet. Most people think you shouldn't feel a dogs ribs. Someone told me once to feed my dog... I wanted to drop kick him. She is 13 lbs and perfect weight, the fittest puggle my vet has ever seen.
Yeah people are ridiculous!! So many obese labs and such too!! And soooo many fat pugs, chihuahuas, corgis, etc. :(

People think they’re supposed to be fat cause they’ve seen so many fat ones so then when they see an actually fit/healthy one they think it’s too skinny and you are “starving your dog” etc. :rolleyes:

The worst is when people think fat animals are cute!! I’ve seen sooo many people think that or call them chubby, squishy, fluffy, huggable, thick, etc. or laugh at them waddling and it’s like uhhhh.... no. He’s just obese and he’s gonna die. :(

Yeah I know haha that’s why I used it as an example of a fake term people use :lau
I think teacup is just a genetic defect, but I might be wrong. They breed runts so that their offspring stays small. My mom has a teacup Yorkie. His mom and dad were oddly small. Dog cost an arm and a leg too 🙄 he has dental issues too!

We saw a pug at the dog park that was so fat that when it exercised, it would puke... I was not happy

Yeah that’s what I was wondering cause smaller chihuahuas are within the standard. I think they can be like 3 pounds. So it’s not really any smaller, just normal. But then people are breeding 2 or possibly even 1 pound dogs so. :/ some of the other “tea cup” breeds are supposed to be bigger though I think Like 5, 10 pounds so breeding those smaller is probably worse :/

But yes! The toy and teacup and all those “designer” mixed breed dogs are so crazy expensive!!! Even just regular big dogs if you went to a pet store are crazy! You could get a quality dog for that price or a rescue haha

And awww poor guy! I think lots of little dogs do because their teeth are so crowded together. :(

Sheesh. Lighten up, guys.
Know what's worse than a fat dog? A starved one.
A dog with a less than perfect home? How about a dog with no home.
Fat dogs with homes and people that bring them to dog parks have it a lot better than a vast majority of dogs on this planet.
Wanna feel outraged about how people treat dogs? Look at China.

My beagle was on the brink of dying from obesity when I got her. She couldn't even breathe.

I get China and I get all that. I don't like abuse of any kind whether it's over feeding, beating, or any neglect.

China eats dogs, it's their culture.

We eat animals in the US too and abuse them and neglect them before they're slaughtered. We are not better.

It works both ways

Exactly. It’s not black and white or mutually exclusive. It’s possible to be upset about all of it at once. Granted, that dog does have it pretty good going to the park, but still, they’ll die so young.

In India cows are sacred and they’re probably just as disgusted by us eating them and especially our treatment of them as we are of them eating dogs in China.
