Hi, my name is Joseph Erinle and I am asking for support from all those who care about dogs and pets to support my campaign against the indiscriminate killing and eating of dogs here in Nigeria.
I discovered that the killing and eating of dogs is graduating everyday into something restaurants and shopping malls are now finding so normal to do without going challenged. I remember vividly the last time my female dog [ granger ] gave birth to two puppies. Each time the puppies are hungry and needs breastfeeding , i would always ask granger to go feed her babies i.e the puppies and granger would enter into the cage where the puppies are and would breastfeed them and once the puppies are satisfied, she would come back to meet me. If granger, a dog could understand what its meant to go and feed her puppies, i wonder why anyone would like to eat such an animal with that level of intelligence and very helpful to man.
I have two dogs which are lhasa apso breed, but i had to buy a third dog which i named richshe even though i do not have the financial capability to care of her, but i had to do that just in a bid to save the dog from being sold by its owner to dog eaters.
Now , my third dog richshe, lives happily with me and my other two dogs potter and granger. I dont think i can keep buying dogs everyday to keep rescuing dogs from being sold to dog eaters, hence, i want to campaign vigorously against the killing and eating of dogs in my country through the media and through every other means possible until i see the government pass a bill against the killing and eating of dogs and i believe i have got friends here to help me achieve this cause. The Killing and eating of dogs just has to stop.
