I was recommended to search for this BBC Documentary called “Pedigree Dogs Exposed” which was first broadcasted by the BBC in August 2008 and took two years to produce.

Some of the conditions and afflictions in the pedigree dogs shown in the documentary are so heart-wrenching. Watch the video below:

When first broadcasted, this video caused quite a controversy in the dog breeding and dog showing world. Do you think pedigree breeding is causing more problems as time goes by? Is the term “ethical breeder” an oxymoron? Are the breeders here in Singapore making sure their sires and dames are healthy (genetically and physically) before breeding them?
