Humans have a very effective defense mechanism against heat. Our body stays cool by producing sweat in order to evaporate the heat away. Unfortunately, canines do not have sweat glands and therefore cannot deal with excessive heat as adequately. While they are able to evaporate the heat through their panting and glands in their […]
Bahrain, a country with a population just over a million, is located in the Middle East neighboring Saudi Arabia and Qatar. With one of the worlds fastest growing economies, Bahrain functions as a financial hub of the Middle East and is home to many expatriates.
The majority of the population is of islamic background. According to islamic religious rules, dogs are not to be kept in one’s house, unless they are trained for hunting or guarding live stock and “serve a purpose”. What’s more, if one touches a wet dog, one’s hands become impure and must be washed seven times, one of which should be with earth. Touching a dry dog is considered okay though.
Euro Puppy Establishes Itself in the Middle East!
The Middle East conjures up images of spices, mysterious spirituality, vibrant colors and heat waves. Well at Euro Puppy; things have been heating up quite rapidly! In the United Arab Emirates, luxury is norm, and one would think that puppies and dogs are not in the least bit important. What a misconception! The majority of the population is of expatriate origin, and thus it is not surprising that the United Arab Emirates is a gateway for puppy love! Forget the spices, the vibrant colors and the heat waves…for now. Middle Eastern countries, like Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Jordan, and Oman are showing an increased need for canine companionship, it seems. Hardly any facilities are present that offer high quality puppies for the expatriate community. Euro Puppy has been proud of the fact that so many excited dog-lovers from the UAE have contacted us. We offer only the highest quality puppies and dogs to satisfied customers. The Middle East has been virgin territory, and although Gucci, Versace and Diamonds sparkle everywhere, unconditional and unadulterated puppy love has been sorely ignored…up till now! Euro Puppy has established itself in all the major cities of the United Arab Emirates and beyond!
While the Pet Shop Boys Go West, Euro Puppy has decided to Go East. The Middle East, to be precisely correct! Over 70% of the population of the United Arab Emirates is made up of expatriates and there have always been extraordinary possibilities to drill for black gold. We tried it ourselves, and surfaced with more puppy love than before!
There are only a few pet stores available in Dubai to cater for the needs of the expatriate community. However, the need for canine companionship is still very much felt.
