Q: Is there anyone living in Shanghai with more than one dog?

Hi all,


I'm moving to Shanghai in August from Wuxi, Jiangsu. While volunteering at a dog shelter here, I adopted two dogs. I'm aware that Shanghai has a one dog per household policy but I'm also aware that there are people flouting this rule. Without incriminating anyone, if you are able to provide advice/suggestions on how best to exist in Shanghai with two dogs, I would be very much grateful.

As you can tell, I am a cat ... I like dogs too, buTT ... I refuse to pick-up dog's poop ... outdoors.


Heve a read here about dog rules&regulations in Shanghai:


I read a text and everything is written in singular (by an English author), so you and your plurals maybe can't be in Shanghai. 


It will cost you around 1000 RMB per year to register ONE dog in Shanghai ...

A: Yes and no. There are plenty of people who get teaching jobs in China
A:Yes and no. There are plenty of people who get teaching jobs in China with no degree. However they're probably not legally allowed to be teaching. Supply and demand.  Schools who are hard up for a teacher will hire whomever they can get their hands on. Schools get busted regularly for hiring unqualified teachers. Years ago I met a guy in his  fifties who bragged to me how he got a job teaching at a university and had no degrees at all. He said he just had someone photoshop a degree for him. So it happens and people who are from non native english speaking countries get jobs all the time. But these people are going to generally make less money than native speakers or live in fear of getting reported and deported when someone figures out their work history or degree is bogus. So if you don't have a degree or work history this probably isn't an ideal way to make money. -- walternc3
