The American Kennel Club Goes on Attack Mode

On Sunday, the first day of the American Kennel Club’s world-famous Westminster Dog Show, the New York Times published a takedown of the club, which we wrote about here. The Times story linked the A.K.C. to bad breeders, including puppy mills, describing how some registered breeders have been charged with animal cruelty, even though the A.K.C. had inspected their operations in recent years.

The next day, the A.K.C. fired back with an letter, charging the Times with using “unsubstantiated, anecdotal episodes to paint a grossly misleading and biased picture of dog breeders who register their dogs and litters with the AKC.”
