Gwenhwyfair I don't know. You don't have access to a vet and would be importing a dog putting much trust in a breeder. People usually recommend having very good connections and high level of trust importing from Europe to the U.S.

If you are in such a remote location of Africa as to not have a vet within reachable distance I'm thinking it's a real gamble importing a dog.

The odds are stacked against you for a happy outcome:

1) Importing a breed that if not carefully selected is known to have health problems.

2) Dealing with a breeder/broker that you don't know who may take advantage of the fact you're not well connected and in a remote location of distant country.

3) Not having access to a vet.

It could work out but please be aware of the potential hurdles and heartache as well.

Galathiel Personally I would think a regular stock coat (short) would be a good choice. I will say that my all black GSD seems to be more susceptible to the heat so something to think about.

grach No, here are not Vet care available. I'm going to get a puppy form Europe.
I'll feed him with Royal Canin, i think.

My friends have one Golden Retriever, and he seems to be happy here
