(KGTV) - Does a new cafe in China allow customers to eat and drink while playing with a half-dozen baby giant pandas?

No.

The pandas are actually chow chow dogs dyed to look like pandas.

The owner insists the dogs are happy and healthy. But critics say dyeing dogs can be dangerous for their fur and skin.

Dyeing pets became a full-blown craze in China in the early 2010's, but has since come under scrutiny by animal rights supporters.
