Girl Scouts accuse AKC of being mean to puppies
The American Kennel Club is facing scathing criticism from a determined group of Girl Scouts who claim the world's largest purebred dog registry, which bills itself as "The Dog's Champion," isn't protecting their four-legged friends at all.
The girls of Troop 6811 from Sandy Spring, Maryland are demanding that the AKC change its position on a proposed change to the federal Animal Welfare Act that would make breeders who sell dogs over the internet subject to regular health and safety inspections by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
"(AKC) has a lot of power and we are concerned about what they are saying," said 12 year-old Romina Poblete, a member of Troop 6811.
