Pedigree Dogs Exposed

Pedigree Dogs Exposed

A shocking exposé of one of the greatest animal welfare scandals of our time

Two years in the making, Pedigree Dogs Exposed lifts the lid on the extent of health and welfare problems in pedigree dogs, caused by decades of inbreeding and breeding primarily for "beauty" rather than health and function. Supported by strong testimony from top experts, the film argues that, without radical reform, many of our best-loved breeds face extinction.
