A good read from Christopher at Border Wars regarding some of the Kennel Clubs new policies on having Vets examine the Best of Breed winners in several “breeds of concern” aka, breeds with exaggerated phenotype like bulldogs, and in this case, Neopolitan Mastiffs.
I’m glad Shibas are not exaggerated, but I think this needs to start happening in the US with the same selected breeds.
What do you think? Has the KC gone too far? Does the breeder have a leg to stand on? Should Best of Breed winners in the AKC and UKC also be Vet checked?
