Dogs eat pretty well anything they can get their paws on, but is it safe? There are many human foods that dogs can’t digest or that can be poisonous to dogs. Some dogs will eat just because they see another animal or human eat it. Fruits and dogs can be tricky; most won’t eat it even though they beg for it. What about pineapple though?
