Dogs are not suitable for food. Do you believe that there are people who are dog meat eaters? There is a law about his already but I doubt if this is fully implemented. Dog is not a holy kind of animal that should be spared but they are not good for the human body.

Yes! There are people who killed street dogs just to make foods in my country. And I really feel pity for those helpless dogs being killed by those kind of people. They should even realized that dogs weren't created by God just to be killed and eat! :)

Hi toxic, from where are you? If you are a Filipino, it is sometimes just a common thing to hear the neighborhood butchered a dog for dinner. There was on time in my life when they killed our dog, the animal seems asking my help and oh, what a helpless situation was that moment. That was long ago when I was a little boy.

Hello thewonderboy. Is that true? I hope that was documented. Then many of the anti-dog eating have unknowingly ate dogs meat over and over again for years. How come it was not discovered earlier? anyway, I hope this is not really true...

This is really true. Why should I lie to you ? The food inspector had the inspection and had fought out this. I am little lucky, I am telling so because I am an one who just used to eat Shavarma's each time but I did not have it from that specific shop who prepared it by using dogs meat

No offense thewonderboy, I mean, I'm hoping that the news is not true. It is clear to me now that not all Shavarma store mixes dog meat to their product. That's good to hear because I thought it was in general.

I think that in the old days, Dogs are not really for eating. They use dogs as a companion to help them hunt for foods or simply to protect their masters. I don't understand why other people try to it them. I remember when i was 10, i saw my neighbor killed a dog and cooked it. Since then, i don't like to eat dogs. They said that dog meat is full of bacteria and worms even if you cooked it.

Yes you are right! Dogs are harmful for humans therefore Muslims call them haram and didn't eat them.

hi guys, thanks for posting in. I also heard a story about a doctor who experimented on dogs meat. They cook the meat and froze it to zero degrees but when they took it out for examination, worms are still alive. It is therefore harmful for man to eat dogs.

Hi lymsnb, liberty. Yes dogs can be very lovely specially when they are taken care of and it is not really good to kill them for food for at least two reasons: They are not suitable for man to eat and they are not for man to eat.

Dogs have become a permanety family member at least within the US; I can not speak for other countries because I do not know personally.. To even think that someone would kill a dog for human consumption.. That is unbelievable.. In all of situations I can see both view points; and this time it is a curse.. Let me make this point clear first.. I do not believe in or support the idea of someone eating man's best friend!! On the other hand if my family is stavring and there is nothing to eat.. I mean I tried lookiing every where hunting for other animals for miles and there was nothing.. Then I would just out of survivor and nothing else..

hi sjvenden27, thanks for posting in. I just hope that you will not come to the point of starvation that will force you to sacrifice one member of your family (I mean your dog) If for the sake of survival, do you mean dog eating can be okay?

No I do not agree with people eating dogs period, its not cool at all.. But if I was in a situation where there was no food my children are stavring.. and it came down to my children dying or my dog.. I would want my children to survive.. Dogs are mans best friend... its not something I would want to do.. just if push came to shove..

In my country, there are certain areas that eat dog meat for they consider it as a way to fight the extreme weather of coldness or just plain to fight hunger. They have laws here that are created but not properly implemented. Hope we can find a way to eradicate it, for this is for the respect of animals. Thanks

Hi mikyung, thanks for joining in. I guess I know what part of the country you are referring to. Nevertheless, it was their practice and so they became used to it and sometimes dependent unto it. I think only guys rally consume dogs meat on those areas.

I know there are people who still eat dogs. I've seen some horrible pictures on the Internet about how they were slaughtering the poor dogs. I was speechless. I couldn't believe that people can do that nowadays. I wish they wouldn't eat dogs at all but their customs make them continue what they have learned from their ancestors.

hi Octav1, thanks for joining in. There are people who are not disturbed while eating dogs because it has become one of their delicacies. I came from a place where dog eating is just normal. To dog eaters, killing dogs is just killing chickens.

Yes brother you are absolutely right. Dogs are not good for the human body but harmful to it. Therefore Muslims not eat dogs. They called them haram!

thanks fayazkhan for posting in. Does haran means harmful? It is a form of awareness for the unsuspecting meat eaters. They should really realize that dog can't be more than a good company. They are not convertible to food.

Dogs is an indispensable part of our daily life. They can accompany our human being well. Although they are not the same race as people, most of family which have raised dogs regard them as the family members. I think this kind of emotion is the cornerstone of the movement aboat stopping eating dogs. they cannot stand watching their family member been hurt.

hi mintbee, thanks for sharing in. Certain people rally can't be comfortable without dogs. Dogs can be a great guard against attackers as well as sweet company all day long. It's really hard to see a buddy being killed.

I read somewhere that predators such as dogs, don't taste good. The meat of carnivores contains a high concentration of uric acid, which they get from eating the meat of other animals. That's why we don't eat bears, wolves, cats, dogs, lions, you name it. The meat tastes bitter and rancid even if perfectly fresh. Beside that, in New Zealand, it's legal to kill your family dog, barbecue it, and eat it. So long as you stun or belt the animal hard enough for it to be deemed a "humane" killing.

hello rahmabaegood, thanks for sharing your thoughts. I haven't heard of that thing. It's good you mentioned it here. It's an additional awareness why we should not eat meats of those kind you mentioned such as dog. I never know that New Zealand also tolerates dog eating.

I think that it sad that people eat animals such as dogs. They are supposed to be man's best friend and most dogs are so friendly and just are looking for a good home or someone to befriend them and be their family, but instead they are being used for consumption. I love meat and all, but I would never want to eat an animal such as a dog or a cat. I could not do it.

Hi Trisha. Thanks for sharing in here. Most of us agree on what you've said. Eat the specified meat in the Bible but leave the dogs alone. They are for guarding purposes not for food consumption.

I agree. It just so sad to know the truth that some people eat Dog meats. I know some people and place here in our country are dog eaters. Sad to say that Baguio is the place where dogs have been reported sold for their meat. Why Baguio? well they said that eating dog meats will make their body temperature high or make them warm. I don't know if this is true but the act of eating dog meat is insane.

thanks mrsuniega for posting in. To the dog eaters in baguio, it's better for us to use a blanket to warm us than to eat dog meat that will cause us seek. Jacket is also good instead of eating dog meat.

One never knows that a certain dog has a rabies unless the dog has bitten someone. So it is never a safe one to be eaten. But i really wonder why one has the nerve to eat this animal thinking it is not safe and thinking dogs are our bestfriend. Dogs are to be cared and loved and not to be eaten. I don't know where is the heart of this people , dogs are so cute , can make us relax , can protect us and can be our companion.

hello Angelpink, thanks for posting in. No body can really tell if a dog has a rabies or non. I guess this virus can remain dormant in the dogs body and when they are eaten by human, it will be transported to dog eaters. It is a scary actually so dog eating is not advisable, we can enjoy them a a buddy but not for a food.

Thinking of people that are eating dog meat made me goosebumps. I don't like them all but I don't want them to get imprisoned too, but I want them to stop doing it not because they're afraid of the law but because they simply hate doing it. I saw on the news the other day that there loads of dogs that was being rescued. The dogs were about to be brought to a certain place where they will be killed and cook. The thought of it makes me want to throw up. How could some people so cruel in doing such things.

okay I have not been to a place where they eat dogs. I have seen dogs on the road and they are too much and it is good that people care for the dogs and do not eat them. They are suppose to be men's best friend. I would not like it also if someone eat dogs, I have no idea why they are not good to human body but because I love dogs i would not like people eating them. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.

hi riyauro, you're saying that dogs meat is simply bad to one's health and you are right. Good you love your dogs, they are as some other said cuddly and who can deny the fact that dogs can be an animal friend.

Dogs are our human being friends.We should get along well with them.And dogs can prevent us from being injured when we are in trouble.But dogs also add us many problems which make us have prejudice to them .In a word ,I do think that we'd better care for dogs.What do you think that ?

Hi liberty, I mentioned a while ago that there are at least two reason we should not eat dogs, first, they are not suitable for man to eat and they are not for man to eat. Seems a redundancy but that's what I can express it. Dogs even in the bible are not for food. They can be a guard against attackers but not for food.

Thanks for posting this discussion. Well yes u are right, it is such a barbarian act to eat dogs. i mean i am bot able to digest the fact that how people can consume dogs. Dogs are such animals on earth who can sacrifice their own lives for us and what are v doing to them. We are eating them and this is such an insult to all the humanity. What say?

hi subhojit, I almost feel the rise of your temperature (kidding). Yes, dogs really can sacrifice a lot for their owner specially when they are taken care of accordingly. As i am saying earlier, how can we eat such a good buddy? It would be unfair.

Dogs are an animal that humans enjoy being around and many humans like myself treat dogs like there children. My dog is the world to me and i love him and hes a cuddler and i couldnt ever see anyone killing him to want to eat him its cruelty to animals and people that do such a thing should be punished and not alive themselves its rude to do something so mean so a kind loving animal like a dog.

HI lologirl, well dogs should be treated as dogs. May it not be that they should be treated as children because they are animals but to cook them is unfair. how can you butcher such a good buddy? There is a law that is taking care of that, I hope it is being implemented well.
