Baladi: The dog getting over its bad image

Baladi - the dog getting over its bad image

 

“The Baladi dog breed is so prolific in Egypt that they are often found as strays while people prefer to buy more expensive pooches.

But things are changing as their character, street-smarts and loyalty have been giving them a fan following.”

I wouldn't mind seeing more street dog types become available in richer countries.  I think they'd make better pets than many registered breeds.

Oh .! This type appeals to me  :) nice shape, clean, look sturdy but not chunky ...  :) Lovely little video, too. Thanks.

Ray Coppinger writes well on these type of dogs. He calls them "pye dogs" - the quintessential dog. Found worldwide on the streets until very recently, when modern western cities introduced dog control.
