SA­MUEL Mamabolo,48, has been a dog lover all his life. Mamabolo, who owns grey­hounds for hunt­ing pur­poses, said he had learned over the years the im­por­tance of tak­ing good care of his an­i­mals. He also owns pigs, goats and sheep.

“This breed of dogs re­quires that you take care of them fully. When you start ne­glect­ing them, they show quickly that some­thing is wrong. I have had them for longer than I can re­mem­ber and what

I can tell you is that there is no need to have an­i­mals if you can’t take care of them. The same way you need food and wa­ter reg­u­larly is also the same for them,” said Mamabolo, who is mostly known in Phola Park, Thokoza, for his dogs.

“I also go around teach­ing other peo­ple on how to take care of their an­i­mals. If I find that some­one doesn’t take care of their dogs then I call au­thor­i­ties to come get them.”
