Video Contest results

April 26, 2011

We are happy to announce that Euro Puppy’s first ever video contest is over and the winner is Charleen Lockhart and their fantastic Syberian Husky, Hachi! Everybody here at Euro Puppy was amazed by Charleen’s video and Hachi’s beauty and vitality so we had no hesitation in awarding them with the prize of our video contest, a year’s worth of dog food! Congratulations Charleen and thank you for taking the time to edit and submit your winning video!

Even though entries didn’t come flooding in, we think the contest was an absolute success! We’ve received many positive comments and a lot of encouraging feedback. A lot more of our customers promised to post an entry than they actually did, but we perfectly understand that with children and dogs around, working full time, one hardly has the time and energy to participate in such contests.

The celebration of Euro Puppy’s 10th birhtday continues with new surprises to look forward to in May. Stay tuned!

The rise of dogs in Saudi Arabia

April 18, 2011

Owning dogs as pets is becoming increasingly popular in the Kingdom
of Saudi Arabia. As local veterinarians will tell you, more and more
Saudis buy dogs, rather than any other pets, not to mention the growing
expatriate population.

This trend seems to counteract the islam tradition, which considers dogs filthy animals and therefore only allows keeping them for a specific purpose, such as hunting or guarding. The German Shepherd is the most popular dog breed in Saudi Arabia, while many other breeds, including the Labrador, Golden Retriever, Great Dane, Saint Bernard, Collie and the Pug, are also present. You can get a pet dog in pet stores offering puppies for sale in Saudi Arabia, but local breeders are also starting to appear. Still, if you have the means, you are probably better off purchasing your dog abroad, especially if you are looking for a rare breed.

Saudi Arabia
Importing dogs to Saudi Arabia is not exactly hassle free. The Saudi authorities will require a health certificate and a letter from a licensed veterinarian addressed to the Director of Customs, Saudi Arabia. Both documents must be authenticated by the Department of Agriculture Veterinary Service Office and the State Department’s Authentications Office and attested by the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia. If you want to make the process easy, you’d better hire a company with relevant experience to handle the whole process for you.

Blue Doberman

April 5, 2011

A blue Doberman is a unique sight. If you have seen one in person, you know exactly what I’m talking about. 

Blue Doberman

Ever wondered why some Dobermans turn out blue? Here is the answer: “Blue” and “fawn” are controlled by the color dilution gene. The blue Doberman has the color gene with at least one dominant allele and the dilution gene with both recessive alleles (i.e., BBdd or Bbdd). If you’d like to get deeper into Doberman genetics, read this

You won’t see many blue Dobermans around, because they are very rarely born in the first place and some people don’t feel like this special color and unique look is worth the risk of a possible skin disease associated with blue Dobermans. Others, however, are constantly on the look out for blue Dobermans. They don’t care about possible skin problems, as they have found working methods to solve them, and they don’t mind paying thousands of dollars for a blue. If you are one of these people, you are in for a treat! 

We have a fantastic blue male, called SilverLight, for sale. He is 4 months old and comes from great parents: World Dog Show Winner sire and a beautiful and healthy dam.


Some dedicated blue owners even made Facebook page for blue dobermans. Get SilverLight if you want to join the club!

The party goes on!

video contest

The celebration of our 10th birthday focused on
new customers in March by saving them thousands of dollars when they purchased
their first puppies. We received tons of interest in the Puppy Of The Day promotion
and were pleased to see satisfied customers, who got their quality puppies at a
bargain price.

In April, we focus on customers, who already bought a puppy from us by throwing a video contest with a prize
of FREE dog food for a whole year! Wouldn’t it be great if Euro Puppy fed your
dog for a whole year and it wouldn’t cost you a dime?

All you need to win this contest is make the funniest, most
creative or moving video of your dog, while mentioning your dog’s breed, name,
when you got him or her from us, where you live and why you’d recommend Euro
Puppy to other people.

The video should not be longer than 3 minutes and you don’t
need to edit it or anything, just upload it on our Facebook page. By spending a
few minutes filming your dog, you can take care of his or her meals for a whole
year. Not bad, is it?

Try to make your video special in some ways. If your dog can
perform a trick or has a funny habit of snoring, sleeping with eyes open or in
a strange position, film it! If your dog is a couch potato and just cute as is,
that’s fine too.

Don’t forget to introduce your dog, to say where you live
and why you’d recommend Euro Puppy to others.

Before you grab the camera, please read the details of
the contest. If you have any questions, feel free to email us any time.
