Worldwide over 25 million dogs are eaten legally in non-emergency conditions by humans every year. Dogs are most popular in Chinese cuisine. China accounts for 40% of all dogs sold for culinary purposes, with South Korean as a close 2nd.
Having said that, I'm curious if the countries that consider dogs a normal part of their diet also keep them as pets?
I'm asking because I have a job where almost everyone I interact with was born in raised in such places and to my knowledge the ones who have pets only have cats, though it could be a coincidence.
