Rottweiler declared dangerous breed by Lufthansa

January 18, 2011

Lufthansa has recently changed its regulations regarding the transportation of certain dog breeds. According to the new rules, a Rottweiler – and 11 other breeds – older than six months is now considered dangerous and therefore must be transported in a special shipping container.


The special container is similar to what lions, tigers and other wild animals are transported in and it is also as expensive.

In spite of this, Euro Puppy continues to recommend this magnificent breed, the Rottweiler for sale, because we know from long experience, that the Rottweiler is not an aggressive and dangerous breed by nature.

Any dog can get aggressive and bite if early socialization and training was not provided, which is clearly not the dog’s, but the owner’s fault.

In fact, the Rottweiler is a peaceful and protective dog by nature and can be a great family member. Most people don’t know, but the main reason for a dog to bite is fear. When a dog feels threatened or its life in danger, it will act instinctively and bite, regardless of the breed. But dogs, including Rottweilers, don’t bite for fun.

There is good news for Euro Puppy’s customers, however. Euro Puppy will not let the new airline regulations affect its customers. We are initiating negotiations with Lufthansa to get the airline to reconsider the new rules, which, in our view, will do more harm than good. In the meantime, we will do our best to find an alternative airline and have the dog shipped in a regular crate or if this is not possible, Euro Puppy will pay for any increase in shipping costs to save our customers from excess financial expenditure.

Euro Puppy Expands in Egypt

January 11, 2011

Egy Puppy

Ancient Egyptians had a special relationship with their dogs as early as 6000 B.C. Greyhound and Saluki dogs were used for hunting and kept as companions. Ancient Egyptians treated them as real members of the family and the favorite ones were often mummified and buried with their owners. 

These ancient breeds are still alive today, but there is a new demand for other breeds in modern Egypt. The German Shepherd is wanted for its intelligence, Labrador Retrievers and French Bulldogs are the favorites of families and large breeds such as the Newfoundland, Caucasian and Neapolitan Mastiff are sought for their guarding abilities.

Euro Puppy has taken action to satisfy this demand and started offering quality European puppies in Egypt in partnership with Egy Puppy, lead by CEO, Mr. Mahmoud Aladin Ibrahim. “On top of delivering puppies to our customers homes, we offer premium dog food, professional grooming service and all sorts of accessories related to high quality dogs. We are proud to be the official and sole representative of Euro Puppy here in Egypt, because this insures that our customers only get premium quality dogs from the champion lines of Europe.” explains Mr. Ibrahim.

When asked why he chose “Enhancing dog breeds in Egypt” to be their slogan, he continues: “Beyond importing quality dogs from Europe, we want to create an awareness of responsible dog ownership and the beauty of owning high quality purebred dogs here in Egypt. I think we are making a real contribution to fulfilling Euro Puppy’s mission.”

Thanks to Egy Puppy, buying and caring for a quality purebred puppy in Egypt has never been easier. If ancient Egyptians had had the chance to get European dogs so easily, archeologists would probably find more than just a few breeds mummified today.
