OUR DOGS has now received a copy of the response from the board of the Raad van Beheer to the open letter from the President of the FCI, also shown here. This follows the developments in the Netherlands regarding the brachycephalic breeds as reported in OUR DOGS May 15th and 22nd.
List of the breeds concerned: Affenpinscher, Boston Terrier, English Bulldog, French Bulldog, Griffon Belge, Griffon Bruxellois, Petit Brabancon, Japenese Chin, King Charles Spaniel, Pug, Pekingese, Shih Tzu.
Based on the latest unfortunate news from the Netherlands I can confirm that animal welfare has been an issue of great concern also in Finland. There is a high demand for healthier dogs and especially those from brachycephalic breeds.
After four momentous days, a new Crufts Best in Show winner was crowned as Ch Silvae Trademark, otherwise known as Maisie, a Wire-Haired Dachshund, and took home the coveted title last Sunday night after what can only be described as a ‘unique’ Crufts event.
