照片被刊登後許多網友也紛紛到下面留言表示這類的惡作劇對狗造成嚴重的傷害,因使用的顏料可能含有鉛,不僅有毒素更可能導致動物掉毛。

The photos sparked outrage online as dyeing the fur of animals can be harmful. Most people don’t know but paints can also be toxic and may result in fur loss.

網友大力譴責此舉指出狗看起來很不開心,但也有人點出狗被漆上的花紋非常細緻,若有此天分的人應該將力氣花在其他事上,而不是來虐狗。

Many condemned the unethical action and pointed out the sad expression on the dog, while others said the realistic patterns painted on the animal indicated a mildly talented artist, who should find a better use of his or her time.
