This really makes me angry. Let’s say some of us know the sitution of the Barbet ( Old and Moderne)..and some breeders sell anything to anyone who asks( remember you are saving a breed..!hum…), never mind anything, like background or history. Some people are very misled into thinking they have a gem.. THE best dog in the world…Well..now’s the time to look into this very sad issue. The dogs will be up for adoption at some point.
They won’t be charging the astronomic prices some change for a cross-breed..and these dogs deserve their socutesonice owner, too. Not everyone has a Barbet for shows/ ego trps or financial reasons ( making puppies and selling them socutesonice). Some just want a nice dog from a real good breeder. That is quite obviously becoming too, more difficult since we have more puppy farms and overbreeding..
pfffffffffffffffft. And some wonder why I get so angry?
May day…May day..;May day…
There is an absurd petition going around solliciting useful idiots who know nothing about the real/true story of what happended putting the cart before the cows, to sign a petition to send the SCC, about the “facts” that someone somewhere lied and signed a “déclaration sur l’honneur” about a stud used for a mating, who may not have been the correct one..SCC saw the fraud when someone asked them, strangely enough 8 years later, for the DNA of her super champion..so they are supporting the lie so that their dogs do not lose their 4 generation pedigree..well there have been dogs before in that situation so it is rather unbelievable to react to support a lie! Hence the breeder who committed the fraud broke the law, comes out smelling like a rose.
Sooooooooooo..the litter(s) have lost part of their pedigree which now makes many dogs ATI ( A Titre Initial)..pedigree-faro_Lanka
A lot of information is given here:
Je n’aime pas trop ce réseau social, mais c’est un mal nécessaire ( a necessary evil) pour voir ce qui se passe dans le Barbetworld.Cette personne n’est pas loin de la vérité, pour une fois.
What many do not understand is why Faro’s owner waited 8 years to ask for DNA, “filiation”to Veltliner?By now, it does not mean descendants must stop attending shows, which is their main concern…so, nothing to worry about lies in a Republic. They only lose part of their pedigree; the other half concerns mom Fanny Forigoler ( really) de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre who has DNA and is clear of any concerns.
The whole situation refects very well, what goes on in the Barbetworld. People fighting for fame, and..fortune ,selling a dog that they claim is “threatened with extinction” which it is not and is solely a cross of diverses Poodle types ( which have PWD in their background). The others you know.

Interesting read below about someone who has shared “experience“. When you buy a product, whatever it may be, it must correspond to specifications…and breeder’s experience, meaning predictability and in what is called “lines”.You don’t want to get a socutesonice pup that has nothing to do with what you imagined.
You want a Barbet, but which one? The old one or the new one? Or a cross? There is not just one Barbet and if that were the case, we’d all know…and the breed would not be a hodgepodge of this and that, that have nothing to do with each other, but the name..So back to square one when the barbet ( small b to diffrentiate from the Barbet breed with a standard) was a genetic term to describe a dog, any dog, ANY SIZE with a beard, a mustache and hair that grows. The reason the is a standard was to differentiate the breed from another one with another standard. Of course all dogs are cute and we love ours, but that is NOT the point.

The message below is very important. Again, you do not need to like or dislike what I said, or what is being said…It’s factual and experience:
