Popular dogs in the Middle East

May 26, 2010 by sandor.fagyal

Many people would think that the weather in countries like Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain or Qatar might be too hot for dogs so they are very rare in the region. However, that couldn't be further from the truth. Even though the circumstances are not ideal for breeding, dogs are increasingly popular in the Middle East.

The two main reasons why people in the Middle East own pets are protection and pleasure.

The classic protection breeds like the German Shepherd and Rottweiler are very popular, but there seems to be more and more demand for less known breeds such as the Cane Corso and Caucasian Mountain Dog. These breeds have a natural inclination to guard the territory they live in and the people they regard as family.  

The mighty Cane Corso


There is an important distinction to make between protection or guard dogs and watchdogs. While smaller breeds can also act as watchdogs to alert the family in case of danger, guard dogs must be big and intimidating enough to threaten the possible intruder to the point of retreat.

I have to share this video with you. These dogs are having a fantastic time... and being responsible (collecting the trash before leaving the beach). Very funny.


Great work with this video! Congratulation www.kutyasuli.hu

Lost dog found after 5 months

May 14, 2010 by sandor.fagyal

How long would you keep hoping that you would ever see your dog again after losing it? Denise Shepard did her best to find her lost dog. She posted flyers and offered rewards, but after the third month, she was almost certain that she would never see her beloved Boston Bull Terrier again.

"After like the third month, I thought someone just had him and would never give him back," she said. "He's been gone so long I didn't even think I was going to see him again."

To her biggest surprise, 5 months after Frankie had gone missing she received a phone call from an animal hospital in Wheeling telling her that her dog was found 200 miles away from home.

None knows exactly the extraordinary chain of events that lead Frankie back to his owner, but Mark Feldstein certainly played a major part in Frankie's discovery. Mark found the dog in a parking lot and took it to the police, who referred him to the animal hospital. Mark was ready to adopt the dog, but the veterinary found a chip under Frankie's skin with the owner's details.

Denise has no idea how Frankie managed to survive 5 months and the 200 mile journey, because in her own words "He is an indoor dog". Stil, Denise was probably one of the happiest people in the world that day.

"I was so excited, people were all staring at me..." , "I can't even tell you I was so happy."

Frankie expressed his happiness to reunite with Denise by 'singing'.
