Thats a tough one specially being a relative so to speak. If this person is just starting out (which it sounds like it), she will soon find out there is ALOT more to breeding than making a few bucks here and there. I think she will eventually give it up.. Maybe you could make suggestions of what you have learned through the books you are reading..maybe she will take your advise. If she has any registered dogs then you could try to approach it through the registry...I doubt they will do anything but its a thought... Thats a tough thing....if the dogs are not abused, I doubt the SPCA will do anything about it....
IMO if you feel that she is not doing something right to your books then talk to her about it. I would think it would be pretty messed up if you called someone on her without first trying to talk to her about it. Maybe she does not know? Maybe she does. Without you talking to her first and just calling someone on her is not right. That again is just my opinion since you want to keep a good relationship with your family. Talk to her first.
thank you very much. i have brought up alot of mistakes that she is doing and she just does not think it to be that big of a deal and these dogs are NOT abused she loves them as much as i do. she is very very good to them, but i think that alot of hurtful things can come out of registering pups under a diff Dame to get the akc on the paper work. no i don't believe i could go behind her back at all and tell on her i just need a way of getting it through to her how important mixing bloodlines and taking down dates, ect. really are she has 3 females that appear to be mixed breeding and she loves them anyway which she should so she does not think anyone eles should care but she is claiming them to be full poms and they are not maybe i can just sugest she get them all fixed before selling?
wow I can see how you would be upset! I guess I don't know what to tell you! I think it is wrong if she is registering a dog under another dogs name when really they are mixes. I would think that is uncalled for. I think it would be hard to say something and then not say something. Its like you want to say something it is just hard because it is your family. It is really tough, but lying to people about a dogs background is really against the law.
