Breed threatened with extinction

Why I do not recommend anyone?

Well..if you do not have puppies, then..? Well it’s not that easy. You have an idea in mind, which is not my idea of a Barbet. What happens when it’s not YOUR idea of a Barbet.. You can end up with anything under the sun.

Prices have gone totally out of hand and if you want a real rare gem, you can have the one below for 4.500€. People will beat doors down to help save a breed from extinction, when they do not know the breed/pup they are willing to pay 3.000€ for was created in the 1990s.

The man on the moon didn’t just fall there?!

The Barbet Moderne has built its fame on a myth or 2( and a few lies); one of them being that the Griffon Barbet was extinct at the end of the 19th century…well, surprise surprise. This is one at a dog show in the Netherlands in 1910. I do not generally talk history here, but from time to time, it’s good to refocus on facts. Particularly in France where many producers claim their Barbet Moderne is the only one…
