As China’s censorship regime comes under attack, the country’s internet users are going berserker.
The world’s largest online companies and news organizations have seen the volume of takedown notices rise by double digits.
Now, some internet users have turned their attention to one of the biggest threats to their business.
Shih Tzu Dog, a furry, 3-year-old American bulldog, is the most popular dog in China’s “Great Firewall” , an Internet-censorship program that is meant to stifle free speech and the press.
Shiyu, a female American bull terrier, has become a popular online mascot, especially among those in China who are angry about China’s actions.
But many in the Chinese internet industry say the country has not addressed its most important problem: the rise in dog abuse on the internet.
The government, they say, is taking its bullying online to a new level, and their customers are increasingly taking matters into their own hands.
“The censorship is making our lives miserable,” said Shiyyu’s owner, Zhang Xiaoli, 36, who runs a company called Baidu Dog.
“We don’t want to put our kids through that again.”
Zhang, who lives in the United States, said that the government’s new measures have created a “buzzkill” for his company.
He and his family live in a modest home in a suburb of Shanghai.
He said he had never seen a dog that could do such damage to his business.
But he did not have a choice.
Shiptzu and Shih are the most visible faces of the “Great Dog,” a new breed of Internet-controlled dog, and they have become a major talking point for those in Beijing, where the dogs have been seen as symbols of the Chinese government’s power.
“Shih is an extremely popular dog,” Zhang said.
“But he’s also a symbol of the government, of the Communist Party.
If we keep this up, I think we’ll be in trouble.”
The Great Dog has become so popular in China that the country is now considering licensing its breed to other countries.
Zhang said that while Shih is one of China’s most popular dogs, other popular breeds like a labrador and an English bull terriers were also under pressure.
Zhang’s company, which he has operated since 2012, has more than a million registered dogs, including the two breeds that are now under threat.
The two-year program, which began in November and is now in its fourth year, has been dubbed the Great Dog “Battleground,” after the Battle of Britain in World War I. China has a long history of censoring the internet, and there have been at least five “Great” dog attacks that have been reported to the country in the last three years, according to the online news site Weibo.
The attacks are considered “domestic” by China, which considers the dogs “intruders.”
The attacks have become so common in recent years that the Chinese military has banned the dogs’ owners from visiting their dogs.
Zhang, for his part, is not worried about the attacks.
“I have a lot of dogs,” he said.
He’s a former teacher who started training dogs at the age of 7, and has three dogs in the “Baidu” program.
“Now they’ve become so big, they’re like family.
If the government doesn’t get rid of them, we’ll have to start a new family,” he added.
Zhang has spent years trying to protect his business and the dogs, but he said the government is using his business to stir up a public war.
“What happened to Shih and Shiy will happen to all of us, no matter what country we’re in,” he wrote on Weibo last month.
“It’s time to fight back.
Please, fight back.”
Zhang said he is worried about a rise in the number of online abuse cases, which are up 30% in the first half of this year.
He is now worried that the Great Firewall will be even harder to defend against.
“In the end, we have to make it work for the dogs and for the Internet,” he posted.
“If the internet is to survive and become the best place for people to communicate, we will have to fight.”
But many of those who oppose the Great Dogs are not convinced.
“They’re just dogs.
They’re not human beings.
If they’re going to get in trouble, they should be treated like other dogs,” said Zhang, referring to the other breeds that have recently become targets.
“And I don’t think we should give them to China.”
But he said he would continue to do business with his dog, which is a service he has always paid for.
“He’s my main source of income,” he noted.
“No matter how hard he’s getting bullied online, I can’t afford to lose him.”
He also added that the
