Netizens Furious At Couple Forcing Their Poodle To Walk On Its Hind Legs In Viral Video
In a recent video that has gone viral, a couple was seen forcing their pet poodle to walk on its hind legs at a shopping mall in Subang Jaya late last week
A man, believed to be its owner, was seemingly captured "kicking" and forcing the dog to stand on two legs as it walked towards a H&M outlet in Sunway Pyramid.
The dog, whose fur appeared to have been dyed red, was dressed in costume, and accompanied by a woman into the store.
The two-minute clip showed the animal entering the store, walking in between sales racks, and "entertaining" its audience with its unnatural stance
The video, which garnered over 2,600 shares since its posting on Saturday, was posted by Deepan Kumar with this caption:
"The dog had been walking up and down the walkway for so long, it kept falling back to its four feet out of painful fatigue but EVERY TIME the dog kept falling back, this repulsive excuse of a woman kept shouting and caning the dog to continue standing on two feet to amuse people."
... while others said that the couple should have been reported to the police or animal welfare associations for abusing the dog
Some netizens also said that the dog was previously paraded at other locations as well
According to most veterinarians, the posture of a dog can be severely damaged if it continues to walk on its' hind legs
Putting dogs in such unnatural positions may "wear and tear their joints", said Dr. Patricia Alderson. "This can lead to muscle and joint disease."
If you see any form of animal abuse, be sure to gather enough evidence to help the case such as, videos, pictures, and witnesses.
