There is always controversy at this time of the year around crufts. Horror stories about dogs, breeding/breeders etc. This year was NO exception but I have to say I agree.
The German Shepherd that was awarded Best of Breed to my mind was awful. I really felt for her, her back was so badly roached that she moved on her hocks. (this is a better pic of her) As she moved her backend was so weak, her back feet knuckled over . (Look at the placement of her back legs in the pic & how flat her front feet are) When she was in the Pastorial group the TV didn't show her moving.
Why are people breeding such deformed animals. They call this kind of GSD Germanic. Our more English GSD's have a lovely straight back, surely this cannot be wrong????
I just feel for this little bitch, loved by her owners, of course she is but they say love is blind.
There is video's of her moving on here. http://owl.li/ZrIp4
Thanks for all the lovely comments & favs, so, so appreciated. xxx

Words fail me on how I feel about this type of inhumane treatment! I think that what really bothers me is that the owners were not called out on this.

I also don't feel this is natural, it makes the dog seem to be in pain and cowering. Sad!

Aw it really seems so cruel !
It is hard to understand why Crufts/ and or Other Shows allow these pets to compete.
I know nothing about the rules and regulations of these Competitions, but seeing this pic. and reading your story it appears some changes need to be made for the sake of the Pets.
Thanks for sharing Barbara.

Poor creature, I don't know what to say. Maybe beat the owners into a coma to start with.

At first I thought the man was trying to get a recalcitrant dog to sit, but reading the text made me rather upset about how breeders create sick animals because they can do it. But is such necessary or appropriate? Having this as a part of the competition encourages this type of "miss"-breeding. By the way, is the image retouched in Photoshop? Or is it a frame capture from a video? It seems a bit fuzzy. Keep up the good work! :-)
