Born to Suffer campaign

Bred for looks - born to suffer

"The way that dogs are bred today, in order to win shows, is having a huge impact on their health and welfare. This is why weve launched our Born to suffer campaign which seeks an end to the breeding of dogs based on looks.

But it's not just show dogs that may be suffering. Many pedigree dogs never appear in shows, but many are bred by breeders who want to produce show-winning animals, and who sell their surplus dogs as pets."

There is a link to a petition which calls for breed standards to be changed so that they prioritise the health, welfare and temperament of a dog.

I will certainly be signing it.
