We all know about the local dogs we find around – every street has 1 except say no be Nigeria you dey stay
Call it Ekuke, Meat 404, Stray dog or even shit eaters but truth is, these breeds need more care and need not be treated like a pack of shit
Most Nigerians prefer to spend heavily on foreign breeds of dogs because they don’t know the goodies attached to owning our very own local dogs.
Well, here are 5 top reasons why you should own an
ekuke over that Caucasian, Rottweiler, Pitbull, Samoyed, or German Shepard you so much crave for or have.
1. Immunity & Disease Resistance
Have you ever seen an ekuke being dewormed or vaccinated at birth? The fact is no and never.
Why? Well, that’s because these breeds are so much immune to so many diseases affecting canines. You’ll see them in gutters and dump yards yet, dem go still dey healthy
Let that your Boerboel or that Rotweiller of yours try it, you will battle with Pavo virus and the rest hoping your 150k + doesn’t go with the wind. You can’t even let your dogs out anyhow but with an ekuke, you don’t need to be worried.
E go spend 6 months on the street hustling for itself and still come back home very healthy.
Some people spend 10k+ every month just to feed their foreign breed dogs. Some spend more depends on how big the dog is. Someone like me, I have 4 dogs and I spend nothing less than 60k.
With your local breed, why should you spend that much when all you have to do is feed it the remains of last night’s food. They’ll eat anything, they don’t complain.
Give them eba, they’ll eat. If you want to treat them well, give them spoilt beans, they’ll love you forever.
To get a very pure Boerboel from S.A, ready your 200k+. The same goes for Caucasian, Rotweiller, and German Shepard. You will spend nothing less than 150k or more if you want a quality one of any of these breeds.
Interestingly, with your 1k, you can get your local dog. Some even goes for as low as 500 naira only. So come to think of it, why spend that much on just a dog that can die at any time.
All dogs are equal in God’s eyes and they will all treat you equally in terms of loving you.
Some say these breeds are not security conscious but that’s a fat lie. If you want to mess with them visit them at night when they are most active. (Which thief or burglar operates during the day though).
They are naturally sighthounds and speed hounds (hunters use them to catch meat and their success rate is 90%). They’ll alert you way before any intruder gets in. Moreover, why spend 100k or more on a foreign breed when you can get 100 ekukes to guard your home
Who born the thief well when you have hundreds of dogs waiting in line to have a taste of his juicy flesh. After all, there’s strength in numbers they say
They never fall sick, they never starve (even if you don’t feed them they’ll go an look for food themselves. That’s how smart they are).
Try that with all these foreign breeds.. No feed them ehn, they will die like Chicken.
