Q: Do you need to have a dog license for your dog to exit china?

Taking my dog that I have adopted in China to Canada. I have the Canadian regulations but I'm unsure of the china regulations. I'm reading conflicting answers. Can anyone help? Thanks.. He's just a small dog with all rabies and other vaccines up to date.

I strongly suggest double checking anything you're told by vets, random officials on the phone etc.

 

I remember a few years ago reading about someone who was at the airport with their pet (don't remember if it was a cat or dog), about to get on the plane home and he / she was told there was a problem with the pet and it would need to stay in China. They had been given the wrong information by someone.

 

I can't think of anything worse than having to abandon your dog at an airport because some idiot had no idea how to answer your question when you asked him so just made something up to get rid of you.

If you don’t have a license, you technically can't own a dog in China. Anyone can take your dog from you – including the police – and you’d have no legal recourse for getting them back. Of course, this usually doesn’t happen, but it can. If you have a neighbor that hates you or your dog, they can call the police, who are required to respond and remove your dog if they're not registered.

Did u read about that lady mauled to death by her own dogs a few days ago?  If I remember she was 52, So, Carolina.  I'm always amazed that people keep dogs as pets.  Ranch animal, yes.  Pet, no.

You need an export permit to take the dog out of China, regardless of where it is going. 

 

You also need to be aware what airlines allows dogs, and if you trust local carriers to not accidentally put a 1000kg suitcase on top of your dog.

We flew a dog back from Hong Kong to Europe a few years ago. 

 

First attempt failed. Airline had sold us a ticket, said all was OK, the department at HKIA that does the export had been asked about practicalities, they said OK, ferry company that sails to HKIA said dogs were allowed on the ferry to HKIA..... just no one had mentioned that HKIA has ONE specific terminal where animals are not allowed.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
