Why do some countries ban certain dog breeds?
Some countries won’t allow specific breeds or cross mixes to enter. Bummer! Take a look at this list of banned breeds by country, and learn if there are ways around it (hint: there sometimes is!) before you plan your next international trip.
Countries named in the ban include Kenya, Brazil, Russia, North Korea, and China. According to the Associated Press, many of the dogs who were previously denied entry into the U.S. because of false paperwork came from Russia, Ukraine, and Colombia.
