Check out this poster featuring a brachycephahlic bulldog and the co-branding of the AKC with Hunte, the #1 puppy mill puveyor in the U.S.
- Question: Does that Bull Dog need a rape rack?
- Question: Does that Bull Dog need special food so he can eat despite his deformed face?
For those who are wondering, this is "outreach" being done by the AKC's "High Volume Breeders Committee." A "high volume breeder" is the AKC's new name for what used to be called a puppy mill.
The AKC's new goals are two-fold: to "raise the bar" through health testing (but not by changing breed standards or by allowing outcrossing), and to streamline the registration process at pet store outlets so that more puppy mill dogs can be moved through these parvo- and distemper-plagued distribution points.
And what's going on back at the puppy mill?
The same as it ever was -- dogs bred until dead, raised on wire, and never properly socialized. Nice!
This is your AKC.
