|Panda Dog Turns Heads In Tokyo-A cute pooch has people on the streets of Tokyo doing a double-take -- it looks just like a panda.
It's actually a dog that's dyed to look like a panda.
The poodle-Maltese cross was named "Columbo" after the American television detective by pet shop owner Kensuke Hirakawa after he rescued the dog from being destroyed.
At first, the dog was aggressive and would not stop barking.
Its left hind leg is stiff from a past break and all of its canine teeth have been extracted to prevent it from biting.
But gradually, Columbo became tame. Three months ago he became a panda.
His owner said dying the dog to look like a panda made sense, because it always had stains around its eyes.
Columbo, who is naturally white, was dyed using a special hair dye for dogs that lasts about a month.This is the article.
Poor little doggie they yanked out his teeth!!!!! Doesn't seem right
