Surface truth and in-depth dirty lies.

Go to this page in the link and scroll down. You will see a Barbet type, which could be a Portuguese Water Dog or a Poodle, and this poor dog, is part of the lot of dogs found in this puppy mill. Why this dog? Because this is the type of Barbet that is now being promoted in France: dirty, filthy, caked and matted. It is just socuteandsonice but you don’t dare touch it.

It is absolutely impossible for many to adhere to this set of “values”, that being one of the many reasons the breed is in such dire straights in its home country. Add a dose of incompetence, or lack of knowledge about what a Barbet really is, some  bigtime politics, a pension fund looking for support and you have a breed…re-incarnated in the 1980’s and threatened with extinction for some and the other “faction” as one calls it, looking to save what remains of the old line……
