Isn't there anything that can be done to shut down puppy mills that sale AKC bulldogs that are "rare" in color and size? Furthermore, these dogs aren't anywhere near the ballpark of correct confirmation.
I don't get it. They want $8k/puppy and they are AKC, obviously they are trying to breed these dogs to be different from the agreed upon AKC/BCA standard. I would think that it would be obvious then, that they are therefore meeting the definition of puppy mill or at the very least backyard breeder.
Maybe the AKC needs to change. We pay all this money to register dogs, litters, our health and DNA information and pay into these shows, so that our dogs are recognized for the hopefully descent(at the very least) examples of the breed and contribute to the longevity of the breed....maybe AKC needs to listen to the serious, legitimate concerns of reputable breeders and show people and start enforcing certain standards and if these BYB want to continue to produce these mutts, they can register them with the CKC.
Sorry for the rant, I just get a little worked up over this. Especially when the "breeder" posted her AKC kennel inspection report in order to give legitimacy to her and her breeding program!
