They all originated from Basenji, prolly cross bred with other Mongrels from across the Atlantic shipped into Naija by our Colonial masters.

"mongrel" is not a breed name rather its a category of dogs that are products of several crossbreeding and nolonger have tracable origins. they don't have a named breed. they are then refered to as mongrel / mutts or crossbreeds.
All local dogs are mongrels /mutt but that isnt their breed name

This is why I wonder why people get vexed when their dogs are called mongrels...Even when they can't trace the origins.

The name sounds harsh tho 'mOnGRELS'

I don't think all local dogs are mongrel. The genuine LOCAL dog has distinct features. Although a lot have been mixed with other breeds to become mongrels. I believe these dogs were indigenous to Africa(or at least maybe West Africa) just that obviously they haven't been recognised and registered by the AKC. I was doing some research online and found a breed in south Africa called the africanis, looks similar to our LOCAL dog but I think they are a bit bigger.

its just painful that all the folks forming veterinary this or that or whateva...none of them ever thought of improving our breeds of dogs.

in case you havent noticed..
1. our local dogs are never vacinated yet they survive all diseases that kill these so called better breeds.
2. their health is fantastic
3. they eat anything...rotten dead animals and others
4. they even hunt animals...see the hunters dogs
5. they serve as rescue dogs in the villages..
6. they are loyal to death.
7. they are cool with family..kids et all....nice guard dogs
8. just like huskies..they survive the harsh conditions of naija...poor diet..no care and yet they are balling
9. they are very prolific ...can whelp up to 11 puppies.

r u kidding...most of these local dogs even survive snake bites....floods...serious physical injuries

if i have my way....most of our local dogs should be crossed with mastiffs of close traits and features.

imagine a cross btw our local breed and dogs like south african boerboels...carne corso...bull mastiffs..


i will love to have good dogs with size...temperaments and character like boerboels coupled with fantastic and diseases resilient health of our local breeds.

I understand you, but the vets cant do it alone.

It's researchers who deal with gene of dogs, biochemist and people who study genes. Basically scientists.

And the boerboel is already a mix of the mastiff and south African local dogs.

Basenjis are not the local dogs we see everyday,Basenji already is a recognised breed in the dogs of the world,and the Basenji club has been in existence since 1939 in great Britain,though it originates from Africa,prolly egypt or congo,the Basenjis have their ears erect and their tails curl like that of a pig,their paws are different from other canines,ther middle toes are partially grown together
They come on heat once a year.
I once had a demand for the Basenji from a client and I had to source to import from Kenya so I gave up on it.
They don't bark but howls.
Their market price is quite high compared to our local dogs.

You prolly didn't read what I wrote, Basenji are the closest relative to our dear bingo.
Bingos are products of Basenji cross bred with other local dogs from Europe by our colonial masters.
I have seen countless bingos with erect ears and curled tails that are exact replica of Basenji.

Yeah and that's the breed they crossed with the English mastiff to give them the so called boerboel everyone is now jostling for angry
Re: What's The Breed Name For Our Local Dogs? by arcbay(m): 7:37am On Jun 29, 2015
And please why do we keep saying certain breeds like the boerboel are the products of mating this and that? Do we think they just woke up one day, mated both breeds and gbam, here is boerboel? Nah, not at all, repeated mating of the offspring did it. It took time, it involved procedures and methodologies, guarded by a strict program.

We can do this In Naija too. As a person, I'm willing to work with anyone on this... If we can develop a heavy breed with the unflinching health of our Naija mongrel, then I'm game... I love trying out new things, but all protocol must be observed...

Dingo is not totally wrong, but Basenji looks more of our local dogs and its origin is Congo DR, while Dingo is of Australia origin.
