The number of pets killed by humans in Japan in 2015 reached more than a million, and a new breed has emerged to challenge the trend.
The breed, dubbed “Vampire Dog,” is a cross between a pit bull and a poodle.
It was bred in Japan for about three years before the breed became popular in North America.
According to a news release by the Ministry of Agriculture, the breed is “in the best health,” and it has been studied and treated by veterinarians.
“Vampire dogs are a rare breed that is extremely difficult to find in the wild,” the ministry said in a statement.
“The breed has become a very popular pet in Japan, especially in areas where there are not many dogs of its type.
The breed is being introduced in more than one-third of the country’s urban areas.”
Vampire Dogs have a long history of being a popular pet for Japan, and their popularity is growing.
Last year, the Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare counted more than 2,000 pets that were infected with rabies in Tokyo alone.
Last year, Japan recorded more than 5,000 deaths related to rabies, and the country has the highest number of fatal cases of rabies nationwide.
According a news report, “Vampires are among the most popular breeds in Japan,” and people in the country “are not only attracted to the breed, but also its reputation.”
The ministry’s announcement comes a month after a Japanese court ruled that the city of Nagoya could begin euthanizing the dogs, which the city said were a “dangerous and aggressive breed.”
The city said that euthanizations are needed for a number of reasons, including the “aggressive behavior” of the dogs and their tendency to bite people.
The dogs are being housed at the Nagoya Prefectural Animal Control Office and are being tested for rabies.
