She, Mia, is gorgeous isn't she? Only 480 TD. They only sell fish and turtles in the shop - other pets are to order.

Hi Essem, Do they actually have registered dog breeders in Tunisia?? As in, not puppy farms? I didn't think they were that big on their animals as pets x

Hi Olliebaby

This shop imports some of it's pets (eg this dog) from Italy.

They were never big on pets here esp dogs (I was once told that they believe is a dog is in the house, angels won't enter there!) and mostly they were working dogs.

That seems to have changed now with the amount of foreigners here with pets/dogs and since the revolution there are many more people walking around with 'dangerous' type dogs.

I don't know if any of the breeders are registered - doubt it.

Visited one in the Medina last week and pix are below. Dogs seemed to be healthy and fed well but conditions not great.

Apart from the Rottweiler when I asked what type of doge the others were he said they were all Pit Bulls:rolleyes:

Whoa, now they would put the fear of god in me....hope they don't start doing this kind of breeding, can't imagine it's something that would be policed very well. I'm always wary of dogs when I go away anyway, that's without seeing sights like these....if I saw these roaming anywhere I'm afraid I wouldn't be going back...don't care how lovely some people think they are, they're dangerous in the wrong hands!!

I think they've realised that there's big money in breeding these dogs - got the impression that there's a lot of cross breeding going on too.

I don't think it's policed at all.

I haven't seen any of these types roaming as such - usually chained up guarding properties. I'm told the police shoot roaming dogs but there aren't many police about!!!

It went crazy here for this kind of crossbreeding, then the police started clamping down, however it's still going on A LOT, you only have to look at a dog to know 'what's in it!'. They're definitely regarded as some kind of status symbol which is just ridiculous, even my hubby said he wanted one if/when we ever went to live in Tunisia....over my dead body!!! Lol.....there probably will be a demand for these kinds of dogs in Tunisia now though as 'added security'!!!

That´s not dogs for everyone...they usually need a huge amount of exercise and working with both body and mind to have a good life and to not get aggressive. I like them but not my choice of dog even that I´m the type of person who do a lot of long walking etc...because if I want a day of to being lazy I want to be able to do that too. All dogs are good in the right hands of people...but can be very dangerous in the wrong hands and thats never the dogs fault.

I love my great danes...they guard but they always seem to have a good head and they don´t need a huge amount of exercise ...and they dont go crazy if I´m sick for a few days without being able to walk for a long time-they just cuddle up with me.

My point is...you can have a breed that guards but you don´t need to chose the most complicated ones...there are so many good family dogs that still would guard your yard without people needing to chose the most extreme. I have friends who breeds both am staff and rottweilers and they have them as family dogs too-but they have devoted their lifes to keep a healthy state of mind of this dogs. Nothing is impossible-but usually its a lot of work and not for everyone.

Delighted to report that Zoo Planet are about to open another shop in Sahloul in a week's time. New premises will be 3 times the size of their shop in Hammam Sousse and will carry all pet supplies. Photos to follow.

I went along to HS shop today to take some pix of their Adoption Day but the owners told me that the people they were dealing with let them down so they couldn't go ahead with it.

Good to see the business thriving - are Tunisians now becoming a nation of pet lovers?

Yes there was and she was lovely but spoken for. However, there are 3 coming in tomorrow.............

One European guy came in to the shop while I was there. He'd found 3 kittens in the engine of his car - fortunately, he heard them before he started his engine. He did ask if I'd like them - free 0 er noooooooooooo. The shop will try to rehouse them.

Just what we need in Tunisia loads of fighting dogs.

These dogs when I see them no matter how expensive make me think crime, violence, gang culture etc etc

I hate them in the UK and its a bad trend for Tunisia...It wont be long till children start to get killed as they do here.
