AKC PEDIGREE FRAUD
Deceitful Stud Book Genetics
2006 to Current
Akitas, Bulldogs, Kuvasz,
Mastiffs, Samoyeds, Shelties,
Detailed cases of
UNCORRECTED AKC stud book corruption as evidenced by AKC employees, judges, and
Federal Court convictions. What about your breed? Your dog's pedigree?
Contact TheDogPress.com if you have an
INCORRECT AKC pedigree.
These examples of uncorrected stud book
fraud represent many of the most respected names in the sport. Lofranco documents simple AKC mistakes compounded by
egregious cover-up in Kuvasz. Incontrovertible mitochondrial DNA evidence ignored in
Samoyeds. AKC judge reports blatant stud book
fraud but even when the puppy-mill perpetrator was convicted and sentenced in Federal Court, AKC
stubbornly refused to correct the Bulldog stud book.
Why? Because, as in the international
Akita scandal and the Banchory Sheltie case, correction would have led to cancelled
registrations and crippling of the cash cow. It should be noted that the Mexican Kennel Club (Federacion Canofila
Mexicana) under President Thelma Von Thaden (also an AKC judge), expunged the
and cancelled fake Akita registrations. The American
Kennel Club refused to correct the Akita studbook. In another documented (hard copy) case, Canada (CKC) cancelled an entire
Akita litter but
again, AKC refused to correct the stud book or cancel the fraudulent AKC registrations.
These meticulously documented examples
of AKC Stud Book corruption diminish the dedication to purebred canine
genetics upheld by generations of dog breeders.
Warning: If you prefer the ostrich position, read no further. If you are
ready to confront that which you've only heard about, then c’mon down the path of
disillusionment because at the end, there’s truth in the bright light of
exposure, and in truth, there is hope.
These cases were chosen because they are well-fought documentation of stud book fraud which stand
uncorrected today. Where there is bravery as in the Saltzmans, prominent judges
who forced AKC to purge the Sheltie stud book after the Banchory business got out, there is hope. If you have proof of pedigree fraud,
contact our staff.
TheDogPress files contain many acidic examples
of bloodline corruption. Understandably, AKC has kept them secret from the dog fancy
but launching the Puppy Mill Index was a step towards exposure of Stud
Book/pedigree fraud. Falsely taking someone's money (knowingly) is illegal.
To their credit, AKC stepped up and now advocates DNA testing
and requires DNA documentation for "Frequently Used Sires."
Our offices still receive reports of registration fraud
Pedigrees and litter
registrations are easily falsified by "High Volume Breeders" aka
puppy mills, to show top show dog names as sires (see
Bulldogs below). That unfortunate fact may have corrupted the AKC "certified" pedigree you hold in
your hand. A decade after this was written in 2006, AKC began to require DNA on "Frequently Used Sires" but that can't
undo the marketing skill of professional producers and AKC's acknowledged acceptance of puppy mill produce.
The American Kennel Club once faced huge logistical problems in cancelling
non-existent litters and recalling registrations in order to correct stud book fraud.
That is no excuse since AKC became computerized in the 90s and following which, canine DNA was perfected.
Show breeders invest their money and hearts to uphold the value of an AKC pedigree,
the genetic superiority of the purebred dog, and their own bloodline. Show
and Hobby breeders are much more than “cash
cows” as AKC calls us. It is we who elevate the AKC Stud Book, thus enabling the American
Kennel Club to market its name, products, and registry services which produce
over $200,000,000 per year in tax-free income.
Our reporters broke the story on AKC's PRIME
registration deal with Petland pet shops. Why would AKC toss its valued reputation
and became "just another puppy mill registry"? Why
did the American Kennel Club steadfastly resist DNA even after UKC
(United Kennel Club) implemented it's use? Many have said TheDogPress coverage
was why AKC finally bit the bullet and offered DNA services. Really savvy
readers have pointed out that the AKC DNA program offset loss of puppy mill
But wait!!! As of
June 2018 the AKC website page titled "DNA Test Kits" states:
"AKC DNA testing DOES NOT determine the following:
TheDogPress.com offers no comment but suggests you may want to explore the information provided
herein and make your own determination about where and how to get your dog DNA certified...
You can start with all the details on the AKC judge who presented irrefutable
evidence that her dog, the son of Jean Heatherington's all-time top winning
Bulldog, was fraudulently and repeatedly listed as the litter sire on puppy
mill puppies. Talk about irony! Jean was AKC's registration
department manager and yet she absolutely had no knowledge of the fraud.
Fortunately her bloodline is so beloved and valued that she survived the
scandal but it should be noted that it was bulldog fanciers, not the AKC that notified the FBI and brought the perpetrator to justice and a long term
in the Federal penitentiary.
Learn what AKC did when an officer of the
Samoyed Club Of America reported litters being registered from a spayed bitch. How many owners were
defrauded and how many unknowingly compounded a genetic mess by breeding those Sammys? We'll never know because the American Kennel Club clammed up.
Follow the shocking case of a prominent Canadian who pursued charges
with AKC because her top winning Kuvasz was supposedly siring AKC litters that she knew nothing about and for which she refused to sign litter registrations. Those dogs are/were
allowed to stand in the AKC Stud Book and produce generations of fraudulent Kuvasz.
These in-depth reports generated so many more complaints about stud book
fraud that we had to make a new section. If you have documentation on
stud book or litter registration fraud, set the record straight! Email
