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:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
