Shiba Inu seen being dragged into water at Palawan Beach, SPCA seeks identity of owners
Shiba Inu owner dragging dog on Palawan beach
One can usually look forward to a day of fun in the sun at Palawan Beach.
However, for a bystander and her lover, her day was seen as a disturbing sight.
Chilling on the beach, he saw a group of people dragging their Shiba Inu into the ocean.
Literally kicking sand and throwing sand at the dog to get a response. They are using the poor dog for their Instagram pictures and presenting it as if it were a prop. They really don’t deserve to own a dog. Imagine what happens at home if they dare to do so in public… Literally using a dog for IG photos and strength it is pure animal abuse as if it was already so obvious that the dog didn’t want to go into the water stop dragging it in #fyp #animalabuse #shibainu #singapore #palawanbeach #sentosa #dog

The Shiba Inu was clearly afraid of the crashing waves as he tried his best to stand firmly on the beach.
Despite their efforts to push back, its owners still watered it.
Shiba Inu strongly opposes being dragged into the waters of Palawan Beach
TikTok user @cado_n_rudy shared the video of the alleged abuse on Sunday (September 18).
A Shiba Inu can be pulled with considerable force by a woman who is probably its owner.
As the Shiba Inu watches the waves, he tries to resist the pull of the leash and attempts to plant his paws in the sand.
Its body language suggests that it is frightened and unwilling to enter the crashing waves ahead.
However, its owner continues to drag it closer to the sea, ignoring the fear of the sea.
As the waves hit the Shiba Inu, it stands up in shock, fearful of its surroundings.
Hear Shiba Inu Owners Saying, “Just Throw It In”
Later in the video, the Shiba Inu can also be seen putting his back on the sand in a final attempt to escape from the water.
However, one of its owners says off-camera in Mandarin, “Just throw it in.”
A different owner then decides to take it over to the water.
The Shiba Inu still tries to plant itself on land, but its owner immediately lifts it up again to bring it closer to the ocean.
Another Shiba Inu can already be seen in the water, although it is not clear whether they belong to the same group.
TikTok users tag SPCA in comments to highlight incident
There was a flurry of comments soon after the video was posted, with most netizens expressing panic over the treatment of the Shiba Inu.
Some questioned why the OP merely records the incident without making any effort to help.
The OP clarified in an answer that the Shiba Inu belongs to a large group of people, which means that if she puts her lover in danger she cannot call them out in public.
In a follow-up comment, the OP claimed that this group appears to be China’s wealthy socialists.
Some commentators felt that the owners did this purely to let the Shiba Inu have fun at sea.
At the same time, several netizens tagged the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Singapore to draw their attention to the incident.
It seems to have worked, as the SPCA commented on requesting the full video and additional information from the OP.
SPCA information appeal
in response to ms news’ Queries, SPCA executive director Aarti Shankar said they are currently seeking information about the incident, urging those with knowledge of the identity of the people in the video to contact them.
This is his full statement.
Pulling and pulling an animal by its collar restricts blood flow, which can damage nerves. To avoid injuring your dog, the SPCA always advises pet guardians to use a harness instead, as it helps distribute the force over a larger area.
Pet guardians should never force their animals into situations (unless medically necessary) that cause them discomfort. The dog in the video is clearly uncomfortable entering the water, and the act of pulling and pulling the dog is an inhumane behavior method. Animals should always be given their time to adapt and get used to new conditions.
We request anyone with information about the identities of the parties in the video to contact us at 6287 5355 X 9 or email us at [email protected]
Shri Aarti stressed that the information provided will be kept in full confidence.
