ANKC Press Release and Video: Love is blind, but it doesn't have to be - 11 January 2017

Thursday, 27 April 2017

Today is the start of an ANKC strategy to support its breeders, initially, those with Brachycephalic breeds.

ANKC aims to counter the assertions that all short faced breeds require surgical intervention to assist with their breathing. They also illustrate the risks of buying from the Internet and unregulated breeders, plus the importance of seeing the puppy with its mother.

The following link will take you to the Press Release - the Video link can be found at the end of the document on Page 2.

Update - Irish Wolfhound Court Case

Wednesday, 8 March 2017

On Wednesday 8 June, Magistrate Smith made Orders in relation to a long running dispute between Dogs Victoria, Loretta van Nunspeet, Graham Jacobson, Tony and Eve Costa, Anthony Clare and Kathryn O’Brien as to the parentage of Gaelhound Heather O’Reily and Roughneen Eve (Dogs).

Ms van Nunspeet and Mr Jacobson asserted that Dogs Victoria had proceeded on a mistake of fact in registering Ornumflow Lord Erikson as the Sire of the Dogs despite sworn evidence from the breeders supporting the registration. The Plaintiffs presented new DNA evidence to the Court which Magistrate Smith accepted as showing that an unregistered dog of unknown parentage, by the name of “Murphy” was the Sire of the Dogs.

Magistrate Smith therefore made the following Orders in respect of the dispute between Loretta van Nunspeet, Graham Jacobson and Dogs Victoria:

  1. A Declaration that “Murphy”, a dog not recorded on the Register is the Sire of Gaelhound Heather O’Reily and Roughneen Eve; and
  2. That the registration of Gaelhound Heather O’Reily and Roughneen Eve be cancelled.

The dispute between Dogs Victoria, the Costas, Clare and O’Brien has been adjourned to a time to be fixed by the Court. The nature of the Dog Owners claim is likely to change following today’s Orders of Magistrate Smith.

The matter will return to court at a later date to consider the position of the Costas, Clare and O’Brien.
