Protecting the Breed

The concerned Breeders, Judges, Owners and Clubs listed below have given their support for the ideal that dogs bred and sold as registered Irish wolfhounds should have only identified and registered pure bred Irish wolfhounds as their ancestors over the past 10+ generations.

 

We share a common belief that protecting the future welfare of the Irish wolfhound (and every) breed must be paramount over all other considerations.  Retaining registrations for offspring of an identified unregistered dog of unknown parentage and dubious breed heritage introduces the risk of new genetic disorders to the breed.   

 

The current situation concerns the Irish wolfhound breed. It could be your breed next. People wishing to purchase a purebred puppy of any breed will no longer be certain that registration papers mean what they purport to represent - that the puppy comes from identified purebred and registered ancestors of their chosen breed. 

 

If you support protecting the integrity of the pure breed dog registry and you wish to add your name to the list of supporters, please email  iwsociety.au@gmail.com  with your name, breeder prefix (if any), breed owned and country.  Clubs (any breed) are also welcome to add support with an appropriate email from a club officer.
