Is fruit good for dogs?

I fed my boy orange juice every day of his life, and now look what happened, he is orange!  Just kidding, that was his Halloween costume last year.  In all seriousness, is fruit a bad thing to feed dogs, or is something that can help them stay healthy?

I am not sure about the nutritional value of fruit, but I would warn you that certain foods that are safe for humans, can be poisonous to dogs. For example, grapes are actually something that people should never feed dogs.

Grapes, Raisins, avocado, tomato can be fatal or cause your dogs to get ill. My chihuahua puppy LOVES apples, carrots, cucumber, capsicum, mango and watermelon. He seems to love all of it. I never feed him too much just a little and only for a reward if he learnt a new trick or did a good thing like sit at the door and bark to let us know he needs to go outside. Along with excersise which to him is, walks outsides, socializing with other dogs, swimming, tug-of-war, fetch and agility training he is a fine healthy dog who has a balanced diet of specialized kibble with some nutritious treats as rewards that are not only little bits of fruit but little bits of chicken, egg, beef etc. NEVER feed a dog Onions and Garlic, raisins or grapes, avocado, peas, tomato and the golden rule CHOCOLATE.

A balanced diet with treats that are earned and ecsersize  is the best diet!

I feed my dog Yakult ( a special anti-bacterial drink made for humans) everyday and my chihuahua puppy LOVES it, it doesn't harm him at all, intact in small amounts daily its quite good for him!

Dogs  enjoy a mixed combination of fruits, whether it is vegetables or meat., There are a few fruits dogs can eat, all of which are good for them, like bananas, pears, mangos, pineapples, apricots, peaches, and strawberries.
