our 1 & 1/2 yr old staffy whom we call Stella is fed on 'good quality'... dog biscuits, occasionally meat (i don't like buying it but believe she needs it... carnivorous animal)..... but she will eat all the fruit she desires LOL.. she loves pears, apples, pineapple and mangoes...(pinches them from me LOL) but as a member of the family/tribe, she is welcome to it.
This is what I did. I slowly gave fruit & veggies as treats, everyday adding more & more. Also gradually replacing beans & rice, quinoa etc... to the food they are use to eating. In about 1 months time, they can start eating a veggie diet with no stomach upset. I keep my dogs meals varied - they have had check ups & they are healthy on a veggie diet. They also eat local chicken/goose eggs. You can supplement & have them eat vegan too. My dogs prefer a veggie/vegan diet. If they don't get fresh raw fruit, carrots or kale, they bug me all day.
Nice friend I have always been a fan of the "Nazi" sheppard.
Those are some beautiful pups.

Whoops, forgot the text! This is my almost two year old whippet. He is my Service Dog, and goes everywhere with me. He is trained to alert to seizures and chemical exposures. A huge blessing in my life! His diet is currently a hypoallergenic, limited ingredient dog food of fish and sweet potato. He has not done well with veggies and fruits, although would love them.
I lOOOOOOOOOVE whippets!! The dog in my profile photo is Jake - a rescue whippet. That picture was taken last year though. I used to feed him vegetarian dog food - a dry form but he was very nervous and didn't do well on it. It upset his tummy. Then I used to feed him tinned sardines mixed with cooked brown rice and he did slightly better but he was too thin to start off with and I couldn't get him to put on weight. He also would not settle in our house and barked constantly if we left him alone even for a minute. He really needed a house with other dogs and so we reluctantly had to have him rehomed. He is really happy now and thriving with a woman who runs a dog boarding kennels/daycare place and has 7 dogs of her own. We went to see him about two weeks after we dropped him off there and he had already put on so much weight and looked so healthy and happy. The woman who now looks after him feeds all her dogs some kind of working dog food and all her dogs go for many long runs in the fields with her every day.

I do miss him but at least I know he's happy and healthy. Dogs really don't have to eat meat though. My mum had a labrador/alsation cross and he ate bread, cheese and vegetables every day and lived till a really ripe old age with no illnesses. Not 80/10/10 but better than meat, I suppose!
I LOVE MY CHIHAUHUA WHO EATS RAW MEATY BONES
Why do you think it's wrong to have a pet?
I meant to also say my dog eats raw meat, raw bones, eggs and he also likes romaine spines and fruit (banana, pears, apples).

I was surprised to read though that Dr. G said recently on vegsource that dogs are not carnivores but omnivores.
