@tiger
Of course don’t go for an old cage dog or a snapping chain dog.
Going through rural area I came across quite some nice companion dogs and dogs used as shepherd dogs. Actually a friend of mine has one and this is the best dog I know in China.
They do not fall under the illegal breeds.

@bluegrass
“honest dog breeders/sellers” is a bit of contradiction in terms
The whole idea of breeding and selling is to make as much money as possible and being honest in this is a disadvantage.
Don’t expect to find dogs here of which the breed in the literature describes them as having certain characteristics. The over production and inbreeding together with the early separation of the mother (Dogs have to look nicely fluffy here to fetch a good price) makes most dogs here physical and mental wracks.

Better to get a run of the mill farmer’s dog. Survival of the fittest has cleaned up their genes.

The other day I noticed a large poster with pictures of all the forbidden breeds outside a vets clinic. The Kunming dog looks identical to a German Shepherd.

I noticed as well, after a noticeable drop in day and night long barking, that the three Doberman Pinschers that were kept inside a metal bar prison near my place have disappeared.

An acquaintance of us relocated his Belgium Shepherd to his parents place in rural Yunnan.

So things are happening.

Kunming dog.
I wandered that as well some time ago when this list came out. For me Kunming dogs are the small brown dogs that roam my neighbourhood in packs but I was mistaken.
During WWII a Chinese version of the German shepherd was bread in Kunming because there was a great need for guard dogs. So the Kunming dog is a German shepherd like dog.
