Nino Scirica, an American man resident in North Carolina State, prefers the company of a goat to a dog. Scirica acquired a Nigerian dwarf goat as house pet instead of a dog known as man's best friend. He says his Nigerian goat is a great pet and friend with lots of fun. "He's a lot of fun," Scirica said. Scirica named the goat "Zeke" and gave it free reign of his auto shop. The goat eats just about anything and has its own room at Scirica's shop. Zeke knows how to turn off the light when it is time for it to go to bed. ( Continues below….. )

Scirica said he got the goat as a joke after his wife put pressure on him about doing landscaping around their home. According to Scirica: "It started as a joke to my wife. She was always on me to do the landscaping." "I was, I'm going to get a goat. I'm going to get a goat. Don't worry," Scirica would tell his wife. Scirica further told newsmen: "I used to bring him home on the weekends. He was free to roam around in my yard, but one of my neighbors complained to the homeowner's association. I keep him here at the shop and come visit him on the weekends." He says Zeke turned out to be a great pet. ( Continues below….. )

Nigerian Dwarf Goats are miniature (small) dairy goats. They enjoy increasing world popularity due to their small size, colorful markings and excellent dairy characteristics. They come in different colours, including black, red, white, cream and spotty patterns. Their milk is sweeter and higher in butterfat than other dairy goats. They do not require as much space and feed as their larger dairy goat counterparts, due to their small stature. ( Continues below….. )

They are even-tempered, friendly and easily trainable. They can walk on leash just like dogs. Americans are increasingly using them as companion pets, due to their gentle and friendly personalities.

U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved Nigerian Dwarf Goat as a livestock dairy goat, which makes them eligible for youth 4H and FFA projects. They are considered rare by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. Their average lifespan is between fifteen to twenty years with good animal care.
