Tiger striped cutie
Are China's popular pooches the real thing?
An incredibly adorable 'breed' of dog is stirring up big controversy. Tiger striped puppies are showing up all across China for sale.
Are these puppies genetically engineered or puppies with very impressive dye jobs?
Supporters say the breed is genetically engineered and has been around for well over two years.
One buyer says that they have washed their puppy several times and no fading occurred and that as the puppy grows the stripes are not diminishing.
Some say that the puppies are air brushed with vegetable dies and that several dogs have been painted to resemble panda bears.
As the debate of the legitimacy of these dogs rages on there is one thing that is not in question they are cute as the dickens!
