There is a point in the movie where Rainie Yang's character says that the worst thing a pregnant woman can do is kill something, then she kills a cockroach. There are many Chinese superstitions about pregnant women that suggest killing or harming an animal will result in the baby looking like that animal. Chuen's wife killed the dogs, so she has a dog-faced baby.

The best plot explanation I found is here and accounts of Chinese pregnancy superstitions are here (and many other sites as well).
