puppy in cage

Puppy in a cage on the market (Cao Bằng, Vietnam)

The nearby market shop was selling dog meat (a delicacy in Vietnam).­ Therefore I think those puppies are probably destined to become "food dogs", not pets, i.­e.­ they are bought as pet, then bred into adult dogs and eventually eaten as meat once they are adult (e.­g.­ just like piglets).­

I did not include the photos of dog meat shops in my Vietnam Set, but you can see them in my photo-documentary about eating dog meat for dinner that I also took in Vietnam: "Thịt chó" means eating a (hot) dog - literally. But be advised that those are very GRAPHIC photos and not advised for children.­

This photo is part of a series called Thịt chó: eating a (hot) dog. A lots of interesting comments and reactions have been posted on the various photo sites where this series has been published.­
