[size=16pt]Why Publish a magazine about dogs?[/size]

Many dogs in Nigeria are treated badly (beaten, starved, locked up all day). It might not seem like a problem to you, but the first victims of dog bites are children NOT armed robbers.
Sending children to hospital is unacceptable. angry To protect our children, we need to teach them how to behave around dogs.
To protect our children, dogs need to be taught how to behave and this is the responsibility of the dog owner. Socialising our dogs is important but vaccinating our dogs especially against Rabies is our duty as dog owners or dog people. Too many children have been bitten, gone to hospital for treatment (including a tetanus jab) and then months later developed rabies and died.

There is no cure for Rabies. You can only prevent it. That includes vaccinating your dog against Rabies each year, and immediately getting anti-rabies treatment for the dog bite victim.
OUR AIM IS TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNERSHIP.
Join our anti-rabies campaign by encouraging friends and family to read the magazine.
If you have any contributions to make, then you are more than welcome to email us.

[size=16pt]Who Are We?[/size]

Dog's World Magazine is published by ROSIJI FOUNDATION.
Our Canine Welfare Programme aims to inform, educate and enlighten the Nigerian public on all issues pertaining to the responsible ownership of dogs.
From the stone ages, the dog has been a close companion to man and has served him in numerous ways.

Because of this, we are particularly worried by the manner in which many of us treat our dogs. Many people continue to see dogs as no more than a dustbin, which should be left to scavenge and fend for itself.

We believe that this is a normal phobia born of a lack of understanding of dogs. At Canine Welfare, we aim to enlighten the Nigerian public on the delights of owning and caring for a dog. We also hope to be able to influence those Nigerians for whom eating dogs is ok.

The canine welfare problems encountered in Nigeria are not so different from those encountered elsewhere in the world, but the difference is that elsewhere, these matters are being addressed. We have been pleasantly surprised by the number Nigerians we have met who are true dog lovers and who make daily sacrifices to protect the welfare of their pets. We have also worked with those who, within a period of just a few weeks, have grown from disliking and fearing dogs, to cherishing and caring for them with a passion.

It is this energy and passion in Nigerians that has urged us on to continue raising awareness about Canine welfare.


Dear Dog Lovers, let us come together and raise awareness. The magazine is for you! Share it, contribute, give us your feedback.

[size=16pt]Dogs come in all shapes and sizes[/size], there is a dog for every personality and function. I'd like to introduce to you a rare breed of dogs called the Shar Pei. smiley

Type: Guard dog (Nature: suspicious of strangers)
Origin: Guangdong, China
Life expectancy: Up to 10 years.
Weight: 18 to 29 kg
Characteristics: Blue-black tongue, born with lots of wrinkles.
Health: prone to Allergy-induced skin infections.

Some find it ugly, while others find it adorable. What do you think?

For more information about this dog check out:

[size=16pt]Dogs, What do they look like?[/size]

Like I said in the previous post, dogs come in all shapes and sizes.
Some have Oyinbo hair, others are Unclad. Some are giants, others are tiny and this diversity has caused some confusion.

How do you go about explaining to inexperienced people that what they have in front of them is not a lion or the devil but a dog?
Because that's what I often have to do and it can be frustrating.

For those of you who may not know the difference, the bottom right photo in the previous post is a rat.

[size=16pt]Did you know that some Nigerians keep rats as pets?[/size]

Here's my story:

A couple of weeks ago, I thought I heard a dog barking. Three days later I had identified where the noise was coming from and picked up a copy of Dog's World Magazine and went to greet this new neighbour. I knocked on the gate, once, twice, three times and was finally heard by the mallam. I asked him, "Is your oga around", to which he replied: "no Ma" Worried that I might have knocked on the wrong gate, I asked him, "You get dog for your compound?", he: "no". My experience has always taught me to rephrase my questions, one because the mallam clearly does not grasp the English language and two because I clearly don't speak a word of Hausa. I ask him "you get kare?" Kare means dog in Hausa... He hesitates then shakes his head and says "we no get". While I was busy trying to find other ways to express myself (using hand gestures this time), I noticed a tiny four legged animal rush to the gate. It sniffed the gate in my direction, pissed on the iron gate then disappeared into the compound. I asked the mallam "Wettin be that?" He says: "Na, rat" *I have died* embarassed The supposed rat was clearly a dog, a tiny one, but it was definitely a dog. I asked him: " does it bark?" He flashes me a smile and says: "Yes, this one de bark". I thought to myself should I flip to the gallery of dog breeds in the magazine and show him that it is in fact a dog or not waste my time and move on... I chose the latter. I said: "Brother, please give dis book to de Oga of the rat" and I left it at that.


The dog was a Yorkshire terrier. Originally from Ireland and Great Britain they were used to hunt down rats and rabbits (small sized bush meat hunters).

Can dogs swim?

A friend of mine used to have a Shih tzu which, when placed above a bucket of water, would anticipate her fall into the water with what I would call 'doggie splashing'. Picture a fly, haven't you noticed how it always washes its hand while standing on the dirtiest of things? Well my friend's Shih tzu kinda did the same thing... rubbing its legs together. The simple action of rubbing her legs together in the water kept her head above water.

So the answer is yes, I think that all dogs can swim/splash.


Now that we are on the subject of swimming, let me introduce to you a series of pictures taken by photographer Seth Casteel. The majority of these dog models are in fact shelter dogs (homeless dogs) waiting to be adopted. They are hilarious!

Check out Seth's site here: www.littlefriendsphoto.com/
These photos are part of his campaign to raise awareness about shelter/homeless dogs. You can pre-order his book or buy his 2013 calendar.

The Picture Gallery of Dog Breeds

By the way, if you are having a hard time catching up,
flip to the last pages of the Dog's World magazine and you will find a gallery of dog breeds in alphabetical order.

The gallery of dog breeds is there to help you make the right choice. Each dog has a different temperament therefore if you are looking for a guard dog, the gallery is there to give you an idea of all the different dog breeds that will work well as guard dogs. For those of you who know what you are looking for, we have provided you with the average sizes of each breed. Too many people have gone home with a German shepherd puppy that turned out to be no larger than a local dog.
This experience has been disappointing for many new dog buyers and as a result many dogs have been abandoned. With the help of the magazine, our wish is to help you make the best choice. I believe that the better informed you are about what each breed is suppose to look like, the least likely you will get cheated by 419 breeders. Ah, 419 breeders, we will talk about them later.

Is it a Rat or a Dog?


I hope I have helped clear some of the confusion. Seriously though, how do you separate a dog from a rat?

I feel that the confusion is limited to small or tiny breeds such as the Chihuahua, Yorkshire terrier and Lhasa Apso, which has been qualified as a devil on account of it not having eyes. The Lhasa has a fringe (hair in front of its face) that is why you can't see its eyes.

I guess what they (dogs) have in common (with rats) is the fact that they are both mammals with tails. Correct me if I am wrong, but I think that the similarity stops there. I think applying this principle should work: "If it barks, it must be a dog".

Of course some dogs don't fit this rule. Our local dog is oftentimes a mix of some other breed and the Basenji. Now the Basenji does not bark, (an ancient breed I will talk about later on) it howls/sings instead. But I think that when it comes to the local dog, so far nobody has mistaken it for a rat. Nonetheless the local dog and the rat have found themselves in different kitchens and restaurants... think 404...

My question is the following: How would you explain to an inexperienced person that the animal in front of them is not a rat, goat or lion but a dog?

That's the general feeling you get when standing next to a Great Dane, they are tall, impressive dogs.

But imagine standing next to George the Great Dane?
At 7 years old, George weighs 111 kilos, is 107 cm tall.

I thought I had heard it all...
A fellow Nairalander posted a thread on the tallest dog in the world. Of course I was not surprised when it turned out to be a Great Dane. I was fairly shocked at the stir it has caused. So much so, I dare not post on that thread...

But I think these comments deserve to be heard, and maybe analysed? Behold what I would call the best comments made about 'Zeus, the tallest dog in the world'. I love the last comment...

[size=16pt]What are you looking for in a dog?[/size] part 1

Choosing the right dog can be a difficult task. If you want a dog that shows your strength and masculinity, then you're probably not looking for a Poodle. If you want a dainty pup that fits easily in your purse, then I doubt you'd want a German Shepherd. Just as people have their own individual personalities, each breed of dog has its own personality. When choosing a dog to fit your individuality, it's important to make sure your personalities click. What are you looking for in a dog?

@chucky234, thank you for liking us cheesy

We have a couple of collection points but I have to say: we are slowly but surely running out of copies which is a good thing because it means I can now beg them to print more copies for the next issue. That notwithstanding, if you want a physical copy, then it is best to send an email to caninewelfare [at] aol.com with your name, address, phone number and also mention where you got the information. In this case it would be from Nairaland.

You can also get copies at dog shows, the next one is taking place on the 28th of September in Lagos, I will post the poster with all the details very soon.

Don't forget that if you are a dog breeder, send us your details: Name, breeds available (max 3), city and phone number/email so that you can be included in the next issue of Dog's World Magazine.

The Australian Shepherd:

If you are active and enjoy being outdoors, then an Australian Shepherd is a good pick for you. Australian Shepherds are medium-sized dogs and have medium to high levels of energy. They love going for long walks and don't tire easily. They are not aggressive, but they will protect their owners. Australian Shepherds ask for a lot of attention, so consider another breed if you don't have plenty of time for your pup.

Pomeranian: Ever heard of Little Man Syndrome? This dog definitely portrays that! They are small dogs with high energy levels. Pomeranian's think they are big dogs and can be slightly aggressive towards larger breeds. If you live alone and don't have much extra time, then this dog is a good fit. They can entertain themselves with toys and get most of their exercise indoors. Because of their confidence, they are good watch dogs. With training, this dog can be a friendly companion.

[size=18pt] Rabies Still Kills Faster Than AIDS [/size]

From the Guardian Newspaper.

FROM the pitch and abyss of darkness, the veterinary profession and stakeholders seemed to be having a smile in the sun if the events of the last World Rabies Day celebrated on September 28, 2012 meant anything to anybody.

Last Friday however, it was interesting that veterinarians and breeders came to a meeting point to fight the scourge of rabies which is a common enemy. Even if the fight was fought on different platforms, it was still an initiative that was warmly welcomed.

Throughout the country, I heard encouraging reports about how the different branches of the Nigerian Veterinary Medical Association celebrated the day in the various states and how the National Executive Committee of the body marked the day with veterinarians in Ogun State.

The distinct feature of this year’s celebration as earlier stated, was the involvement in the celebration of dog breeders and dog owners, who also marked the day with series of lectures, road shows and dog shows —- all with the aim of properly positioning the knowledge of the general public about what rabies could actually mean to the society if nothing is done to prevent or manage it.
