A List of the Dogs Banned in Beijing
June 22, 2013 Beijing passed the overall regulation on dog breeding. The rule, which took effect on Oct. 15 that year, stipulated among other things that large and vicious dogs were not allowed in key management areas in Beijing. The rule defined those areas the districts that make up the heart of the capital but not the dog breeds.
Then, on Oct. 13, two days before the rule was set to take effect, the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Agriculture, the authority in charge of husbandry and veterinary affairs, issued the definitive explanation notice on the banned breeds. In key management areas, vicious dogs as well as dogs of maturity height over 35 centimeters are not allowed, the announcement said. The notice excluded guide dogs for the blind and other similar helper dogs from the height restriction. The notice listed the following dogs as examples of those that were banned:
Bouvier des Flandres
Old English sheepdog
Kerry blue terrier

Why would they not allow a Basenji? They don’t talk...even the females!
I didn’t know a sled dog was a breed?
Is this because the Premier of China doesn’t want dogs taller than him around. Or was that North Korea?
Banned as food? Or just as pets?
My daughter just spent a year abroad, Beijing and Osaka. She said the Chinese tended to be rude, aggressive, pushy but their dogs were very well-trained - quiet, heeling without leashes, sitting quietly. She guessed they beat their dogs if they misbehaved.
The Japanese were polite, helpful, often friendly, but their dogs were spoiled rotten.
Neurotic, yes. Having been around several family have had, not a mean bone in them.
They are too focused on food. Had one that would make her escape every "trash night" and spend the night foraging the neighborhood cans.
A billion people with a billion big dogs in a city, they made a necessary move. Some of the dogs on the list need to be banned in the U.S., for example, the dang pit bulls. Those things have no more business to be in a neighborhood than does a cougar.
Greyhounds are big babies.
That’s absolutely ridiculous. The vast majority of these breeds, I’d say all with the proper training, are sweet dogs. What happens to the dogs people already own? Are they euthanized? It’s sad that some people probably, if they don’t already own them, would make good owners to some of these dogs. There are so many dogs in shelters in need of homes. Now they won’t get the chance. I’d hate to live under the Chinese government. I know ours is not perfect, but I’d take it over China any day.
I hear they’re dericious. < /chinese >
“Greyhounds are big babies.”
I have a pretty nice scar right below my left eye that proves otherwise.
NEVER disturb and stick ones face near an ex-racer while he is sleeping...
Chinese doggie ping
Looks like Obama must bring his own meals.
Setters? As in Irish Setters? Wow.
One glaring omission: North American Wolf. LOL.
Some use them for chasing coyotes around here.
Like that old fashion saying.....let sleeping dogs lie. which also goes with.....never kick a dead horse, the horse doesn’t care and you might break your foot... ps...love greyhounds...
“Stupid is as stupid does”: Mama Gump. Why the hell would you do that?
My relatives used to have 2 of them around at a time. A bit unreliable.
Because basenji’s are smarter than their leadership.
I think they mean a Siberian Husky, or a Malamute
There are German, German Shepherd Dogs in China whose owners have paid 6 figures for the dogs.
Those poor dogs. This makes me ill.
