Unfortunately there have been unsavory comments on Facebook made about the German Pinscher Club UK and members of our committee. Although we respect that everyone is entitled to their own opinion we feel that it is time our voice be heard.
Collectively we would like it make it clear that the German Pinscher Club UK has never wavered in our main aim – to support and nurture this breed which we all hold close to our hearts. In this instance which brought about a social media attack, our support was extended to a woman who was made an unwilling breeder by the sheer virtue of falling in love with a puppy from a breeder who wanted more than to find it a good home. The puppies’ health and wellbeing have always remained our only priority. The member involved in the dispute sought legal advice to help her resolve the matter as we played no part in advising her in matters that did not concern the health of the litter.
Personal attacks have been aimed at members of our committee; people who give up their time, effort and often money to run this club and champion the breed. The Club’s accredited breeders do not breed for profit. There are very few litters in our thirty year history for a good reason – our priority is the breed. Not the demand for the breed.
Our breeders are not here to cater to potential owners who decide they cannot wait for a puppy and feed an impatient market that wants puppies ready to take home yesterday. They are here to better the breed – quality over quantity. They want their puppies to go to loving homes where their owners will love them as unconditionally as their puppies will. No strings attached. It really is that simple. That is why our breeders refuse to “breed in bulk” and that is why they will continue to do so. It will never be the case of not having the experience or knowledge to breed, but having the experience, knowledge and wisdom to know when not to breed.
We would thank all our supporters local and foreign for their continued trust that as a club, we can continue make a positive difference for German Pinschers in the UK.
