PEDIGREE FRAUD – AKC STUD BOOK
Akita, Bulldog, Kuvasz, Samoyed, Sheltie: AKC Stud Book Corruption - Part 1
Documented, detailed cases of American Kennel Club Stud Book corruption; unimpeachable evidence provided by AKC judges and show breeders.
These aggrieved parties are among the most respected names in the sport. Lofranco documents simple AKC mistakes compounded by egregious cover-up. Incontrovertible mitochondrial DNA evidence ignored in Samoyeds. AKC judge reports pedigree fraud and stud book falsifications but even when the infamous breeder-importer thief was sentenced in Federal Court, AKC still refused to correct the bulldog stud book.
Why? Because, as in the international Akita scandal and the Banchory Sheltie case (we have hard copy on both), 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, expunged the studbook and cancelled the fake Akita registrations. The American Kennel Club refused to do anything. In a similar case, Canada (CKC) cancelled an entire litter but AKC refused to correct the stud book or cancel the fraudulent registrations.
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 aged, well-fought documentation of stud book fraud which AKC refused to correct. Prominent among them is the Saltzmans who as prominent judges, forced AKC to purge the Sheltie stud book after the Banchory business got out.
TheDogPress files contain many acidic examples of bloodline corruption. Such cases were once kept secret from the dog fancy and in fact, this publication has been severely criticized for airing dirty laundry. Our position is simple. Stud book/pedigree fraud erodes all that AKC once was and claims to be today.
Whereas at one time the American Kennel Club faced huge logistical problems in cancelling non-existent litters and recalling registrations in order to correct stud book fraud, that excuse has not been valid since AKC became computerized in the 90s and following which, canine DNA was perfected.
Show breeders invest their lives, money and hearts to uphold the value of an American Kennel Club 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, shows, products, and registry services which produce well over one hundred million dollars per year in non-taxable income.
We broke the story on AKC's PRIME registrations deal with the international Petland pet shops. As an Insider, you will agree that AKC must return to its values or become "just another puppy mill registry." Learn why the American Kennel Club steadfastly resisted DNA even after UKC (United Kennel Club) implemented it's use.
Get all the details on the AKC judge who presented irrefutable evidence that her male, 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 was/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 their dogs? 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 experienced stud book or litter registration fraud that corrupted your breed's pedigrees, set the record straight! Email Editor@TheDogPress.com.
Only the AKC Delegates have the power to protect purebred dogs. Those club delegates are voted in (or out) by fanciers who demand stud book protection and validity.
