CA calls for compulsory DNA testing

The Canine Alliance is calling for mandatory DNA testing of puppies in an effort to catch unscrupulous dog breeders passing mongrels off as pedigree breeds.

Talking to the Daily Telegraph, the Canine Alliances says that families looking to buy a pedigree dog increasingly run the risk of fooled by rogue breeders using fake pedigree documentation.

The Canine Alliance says this is the only way of protecting pet buyers who are spending large sums on what they think are pedigree puppies from being ripped off.
