Hi my boyfriend and i are potentially going to relocating to Lagos early next year. I am trying to tract down information about keeping dogs. We have a Large Tibetan Mastiff cross 3 year old male who would travel with us. Are there places that are safe enough with a small garden or even walking areas? We are also looking to have our first child next year, whilst I certainky wouldn't have baby in Lagos, is there sufficient support in place if I was to move back once baby was about 3 months old? Many thanks for any help you can provide.

it depends which standard you are used to.
Lagos is a biig city with lots of people (20mil plus) the air is dirty the traffic horrible.
for 10km it can take 3 hrs. not much green here
