If Your Purebred Dog Has Health or Behavioral Issues, Share Your Story With Us

Published by PETA.

Did you purchase a Labrador retriever who suffers from chronic eye issues, a Dalmatian who is hearing-impaired, or a pug who has extreme difficulty breathing? If so, you’re not alone. Many purebred dogs become ill, exhibit behavioral issues, or die prematurely because of traits they were bred to have in order to meet standards set by the American Kennel Club. If you purchased a dog such as a Bloodhound, German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever, or dog of another AKC-registered breed who struggles with their health, behavior, or who died prematurely, we want to hear from you.
