Man Cares for 140 Stray Dogs

Man Adopts 140 Stray Dogs | Oddity Central - Collecting Oddities

Li Zongwen, a former chef from Wuhan, has made online headlines after Chinese media discovered he has taken in 140 stray dogs from the outskirts of the city.

The 59-year-old man began adopting strays from the streets of Wuhan in 2009, and in just two years time he has taken-in an impressive 140 hungry dogs. He put a roof over their heads, but admits he couldn’t afford to feed all of them, without donations from other local animal lovers. Food and rent for Mr. Li and his big family of canines cost around 5,000 yuan ($760) which is way more than he could pay on his own.

Although sharing a home with 140 animals isn’t exactly an easy task, considering the noise he has to put up with at night, and the considerable mess he has to clean up after them, Li Zongwen doesn’t complain. On the contrary, he likes having them around as he prepares a big bowl of dog chow, using a garden shovel, and even eats his own meals in their company. Maybe he should get in touch with Ha Wenjin, the woman who looks after 1,500 stray dogs and 200 cats, I’m sure they have a lot to learn from each other. Read more here...

Pitbull Love

A clip created by the Ethical Treatment of Pit Bulls. I saw a segment on the news the other day where the interviewer was questioning a guy who retrained aggressive dogs to become non-aggressive. He said it was wrong to believe that a breed of dog, even the pit bulls, are dangerous. He also said that any dog can become dangerous if they are not raised and trained correctly. "The way a dog behaves is due to how a person treats and educates their dog."
