Endangered breeds…

Don’t even think you will see the Barbet. As far as the French SCC ( Société Centrale Canine), it is doing what it has to do as “pseudo” ancestor to the Poodle, which it is NOT. The true Barbet which is a Griffon de chasse, like the Griffon Korthals or the now extinct (even if it is not) Griffon Boulet, but who cares because the Barbet  Moderne, created in the 1990’s, does make money as a mythical generic breed and that is why you see every shape and style around the world. I am hard pressed to decide where they are the ugliest and furthest from the standard.  Most greeders have not a clue. That’s life.

Lastly.. these endangered breeds at least look like the standard says they ought to look and you can recognize them easily…unlike most Barbets which look like any generic fluffy breed under the sun. Socute.
