Nobody will be allowed to own more than one pooch under the proposals which call for zero tolerance on unplanned pregnancies.
Faced with an unexpected litter, the owner will have three months to find homes for the animals or they will be packed off to adoption agencies.
The only alternative will be sterilisation, Shanghai authorities said.
The move is a response to rampant barking, unscooped waste, and the growing risk of dog attacks which officials say is affecting the city’s environment and sanitation.
They also admit there is limited living space for the 20million residents and their 800,000 dogs.
Even though the measure has yet to become law, the response from animal lovers have been defiant.
