Bringing a dog to Dhahran  (5 Answers)

Hi,
Just wondering if you could help.
My partner has been offered a job in Dhahran. 2 years ago we rescued a 6 year old Staffie who had been in kennels for two years, he's a wonderful dog, just loves everyone. He doesn't like the cold but does like the heat. Do you think he could cope in Dhahran if we were very careful? The decision to move depends on him as we wont rehome him.

Thanks for reading this and I look forward to some help.

Weather in Dhahran  (3 Answers)

I was wondering about the weather in Dhahran? I have applied for a position in Saudi Arabia. I've looked at different blogs, and they all say different things regarding the weather. Some say that the average temperatures in summer is around 96 degrees. others say up to 110 or 120 degrees farenheit. I just read one a few minutes ago that said it could get up to 150 degrees farenheit.

The highest recorded temperature in the world is supposed to have been 122 degrees. So I'm confused.

Will I be able to bring my German Shephard dog and do the townhouses and modules have fenced in yards? Is she safe there?

Are we safe there as Americans? Are people still leaving because of safety concerns? Are there more Saudis in the compound and how do they feel about the Americans?

How much are groceries and are there a lot of veggies and fruits and natural foods like brown rice flour and soy milk? If not can I order food by the case to be shipped to me?

Is there a library? A fitness club with exercise machines and weight machines?

Are there religious services in the compound? How tolerate would the compound be of a Buddhist?

Thanks!
