I lived in Kunming for 2 years 2013-2015 and found it to be very dog friendly. I am considering moving back with my older service dog who will be retiring soon (she's a white lab mix, 85 lbs) and my smaller german shepherd male who is training to take over for her (56 lbs). He will get a little bigger than that, but not more than about 65lbs. I know that german shepherds are technically banned in kunming, would he be safe there or would I seriously risk having him taken away or hurt? From what I can gather, I can't imagine the police would take a foreigner's dog who is wearing a service dog vest unless he bit someone (which would never happen, both are incredibly friendly and well trained dogs being as they are service animals). Does anyone have any information for me about this? My Chinese friend thinks I'll be totally fine, but every city in China is a little different.
