A Dog Crate Is a Cage Is a Prison | PETA
I am trying to ge better informed before I go to China thats why I am doing research on the internet and posing question on this forum .The info I got from one site on the internet stated that some restuarant owners display dogs in cages outside their resturant to show that the meat is fresh. The blog also stated that there are farms in China that raise dogs solely for food puposes. it appears from the replies I recieved this is not the case which makes me very happy. My wife and I have travelled to many different countries and we always respect their ways and customs.I am aware that the Chinese people consider certain types of foood that I probably wouldn't eat as delicacies and I repect that as well.

Dog Metal Cages - Drs. Foster and Smith
Little puppy paws are sensitive, and haven't yet developed the hardened exterior that protects dogs feet from injurious surfaces. Wire cages are not only uncomfortable; they can cause cuts and bruises on paw pads, as well as problems to the dogs' limbs and joints. Wire flooring is also subject to bending and sagging, making the cage even more detrimental to puppies' physical development.I would like you to require all commercial breeders and puppy mill facilities to utilize only solid bottom cages for dogs. Tell them we see through their profit-minded operations, and hold them accountable for keeping their dogs healthy.
