A CAREFUL PREVIEW OF THE MASTIFF BREEDS DOING WELL IN NIGERIA.
Over the past one week,we have had twelve demands for Neapolitan Mastiff Puppies.
This sudden interest surprised me somewhat.
Among the Mastiff Breeds in Nigeria,the Boerboel(South African Mastiff) is by far the most popular and readily available.
There are some Mastiff breeds not available except in cases of imports-English Mastiffs,American Mastiffs to mention two.
Other Mastiffs like the Cane Corso and the French Mastiff are available but quite rare.
The Tibetan and Neapolitan Mastiffs are available,but also rare.
When the demands came in,they all came in via telephone calls at the rush hour in Lagos when it is most difficult to take phone calls.
I tried to persuade my callers,all from different parts of Nigeria incidentally-Owerri,Tinapia,Taraba,Ogudu,Port Harcourt,Bayelsa,Enugu,Abuja and the rest Lagos two island one mainland and one in Festac town to send emails to no avail.
Only two finally sent mails,the rest kept calling.
The next day I got through to our regular partners for different dog breeds in different parts of the Country and realized that Neapolitan Mastiffs were not as available as I had always thought.
But we will get for them.We have gotten new partners and within the week we will get them Prime Neapolitan puppies.
BUT they are scarce.
One client wanted a pure black puppy,Male and we explained that pure blacks were rare but most importantly prone to sun stroke.
The Neapolitan Mastiff is larger than the Boerboel.VERY UNIQUE in looks.
The average price range in Nigeria is N180,000 to N300,000 for Prime puppies from good blood lines.
