MJ? Puppies for Sale at Kepong Baru Wet Market

You can find ‘almost’ anything you need in the Kepong Baru wet market. This open air makeshift wet market sells anything from fish, vegetables, spices, dried goods, meat, fruits, noodles, rice, various processed food, shoes, lady accessories, clothes, cook wares, electrical items, hand phone accessories, goods from China, confectioneries and many more! I came a across someone selling a litter of puppies next to a vegetable stall last weekend. They are probably around 3 weeks old and are priced at RM5 (USD 1.50) each. There were some Chinese characters written on the Styrofoam box cover and one of it was ‘Jacky Chan’. The owner also scribbled ‘MJ’ on the sign. I am not sure what the owner means by writing these words. Maybe ‘MJ’ stands for black and white which are the colours of these puppies. These black and white mongrel puppies are active and playful. Many people stopped by to see these cute puppies and I couldn’t resist taking their photos. I hope some good hearted dog lovers would take them home!

RM5?!! It's darn cheap!! We were thinking of getting a pet for my girl coming birthday on July, it would be a good idea! It's sad to see the puppy squirmed and packed in a box, wonder what will the seller do with it when it grows older...

Thanks for sharing!

At first look, I thought they were stuff toys until I read your posting. OMG! RM5 each? They are sold like groceries in a market. Let's hope they go to some good homes.

Ann said...

RM5, so cheap. Why didn't you buy them and resale at a profit.

May years ago, exactly 10, a bitch had puppies where I lived in NYU in Singapore. The whole "kampong" were either for the puppies or against. The for were 90%. The kids and mothers came to feed the puppies. One day, they came home, the anti person had called the SPCA to get rid of the pupies. You can see the photo I posted under "Hands" Something my kids will talk for the rest of their lives.
