Labrador Retriever Most Popular Dog

Posted in Dog News

The Labrador Retriever remains King of the Kennel, or at the very least, top dog in America, according to the American Kennel Club (AKC). For the 19th year in a row the loyal Labrador Retriever has maintained the number one position in the hearts of American dog owners says the Club in a press release. The statistics track the registration figures for 2009, and thus don’t take into account the number of unregistered pure bred dogs, or mixed breed dogs in American homes. A surprising change in the population is the increasing popularity of the German Shepherd, which is now ranked number 2, the first time that has happened in some 30 years, said the AKC. It took that spot away from the Yorkshire Terrier. Media influence on dog breed popularity continues with the rise of the Bulldog. According...

Posted in Dog News

A man convicted for selling videos depicting pit bull dog fights, along with other scenes, has found his successful appeal in a federal court appealed in turn by the Obama administration to the US Supreme Court. The defendant claims the law used to charge and convict him is unconstitutionally broad. The Human Society of the United States and others say the law is needed to protect animals. Other groups, including the NRA, say the law is so broad that it would make the depiction of hunting quail in a documentary film unlawful and subject the producers to prison time. The defendant in the instant case, who was never charged with actually staging dog fights, only editing existing videos together (largely sourced from Japan where it is legal according to one published source), received a longer prison sentence than football...
