My mother ordered Dog Fancy on 9/15/11, paid with a check. Has still not received any magazines. She needs to change her mailing address; how can I do this?

BB, the dog you are referencing in the November 2011 DOG FANCY is a German Wirehaired Pointer.

Read the article Battling the Big C, and was wondering if someone could tell me what kind of dog is on pg. 37. My husband and I are extremely interested.

Edna, members of our staff have rescued dogs and volunteer at shelters every week, some now for years. Every month DOG FANCY promotes responsible adoption. Dogs enrich our lives in so many ways, and we would never want to live in a world without dogs. But the fact is that if we are going to live in a world with dogs, there must be dog breeding. Not all dog breeders are irresponsible or out for profit. There are responsible dog breeders who are also extremely dedicated to rescuing dogs bred by irresponsible people. If the responsible breeders are eliminated, who will be left to breed dogs? We strongly advise people NOT to breed their dogs, and we vigorously encourage dog owners to spay and neuter. And we encourage people to adopt responsibly from shelters. We take complaints about breeders very seriously, following a protocol to investigate, whether they be about a particular puppy or kennel conditions. We also maintain a list of breeders who are not allowed to advertise, and add any breeder who comes to our attention through law enforcement, animal-control, humane society, SPCA, or AKC/UKC action to this list. While it is not a perfect system, we are confident that we catch most puppy millers before they get a chance to advertise in our
magazine.
We believe education is the key to solving many problems that lead to dog overpopulation, which is why we dedicate so much of our efforts to help people deal with training problems, give them tips on housebreaking, help them have a relationship with their dogs that is fulfilling for both.

I had never read your magazine before I subscribed to it and was very impressed until I got near the end and saw all the advertising for breeders. I realize that this makes money for you but do you think that maybe you could ask people to consider adoption. The breeders are all out for money - they don't care anything about the millions of animals that are euthanized each and every year. There should be a law banning the constant breeding. If only people realized that mixed breeds have just as much love to give. You can even find pedigrees at the shelters now if that is so important. I have had animals for many years and every one has been a rescue. Many thanks to those of you who care enough to adopt.

Lena, we are happy to report that your comments are based on outdated information. The city has lifted the longtime ban and dogs are now welcome downtown, even along the main drag of Pacific Avenue. There are a number of dog friendly accommodations and stores, and several dog-friendly beaches. We believe it is important to acknowledge when a city takes steps toward being dog friendly, and that is certainly the case with Santa Cruz.

Yes there are irresponsible breeders and people who do not spay and neuter and take their dogs to the vet. But you are missing the point of the story. The Great Dane finally ended up with an organization that recognized the problem and did everything in its power to remedy the situation. The dog had simply been passed from person to person before then. The Happy Endings column is to salute and recognize the good guys of the dog world. It is a way to celebrate the victories and good work done. To our knowledge no shelter was involved with this dog before it finally ended up truly getting rescued by the Birch Haven center.

My comment is regarding the deaf dane article in the Sep. issue. I was absolutely horrified that any dog with the potential of having hearing problems is being sold/adopted out without explaining to the adopter/purchaser of this
potential.

The article never explained where these danes came from and I just cannot believe that breeders are selling to people who have NO knowledge of
this.

This is why breeders should have to be licensed in every state which would subject them to unannounced visits. I just cannot believe something like this could happen by such stupid, stupid people and why isn't a vet looking at these dogs to explain this to these
abusers?

If these dogs are being adopted out after being returned even one time without realizing this potential, then those shelters should be shut
down.

This is just sickening!!!

How in the world could you choose Santa Cruz ,CA as a dog friendly city.Not a single beach allows dog, on or off leash. The beachside park has been closed to dogs. No dogs are allowed at all in their downtown shopping area. Only one hotel allows dogs and so far there are only 2 restaurants that allow dogs at their outdoor seating. It is a shame that your choice will lead people to Santa Cruz with their dogs, only to find out that there is no place to go with their pals.

We appreciate you being a longtime subscriber and we take our readers' opinions seriously. We oppose mandatory spay neuter but we do support and encourage low cost or free spay/neuter clinics, which is only one of dozens of aspects in choosing a DogTown USA city. We ran a clarification of the Ibizan item you mention on Page 6 of the October issue. Dog Fancy publishes more breed profiles, talks to more breeders and handlers and dog world people than any other leading dog magazine. Yes, we profile successful rescue, but we also feature many voices across the dog world and strive to represent the views of many aspects of that world, and to present the most useful information about training, nutrition, behavior and the many facets that are essential to educating all of us in becoming the best dog owners possible.

You have shown a shift toward the AR agenda. Nearly all your articles are about shelter dogs who were saved. Your allow writers to show bias (e.g., saying that "too many Ibizans end up in shelters," a fact shown to be untrue [5 in Rescue and that is not in Shelters}). Did you editors not check the facts? Apparently not!


You chose a dog-friendliest city based on a high percentage of spayed/neutered dogs. Hardly a parameter that makes a city dog friendly - forced removal of reproductive organs, maybe?


Your magazine is becoming a tool for the HSUS, not for the dog owning public.


I am a very longtime subscriber to Dog Fancy, but unless this trend reverses, I will not renew. If it continues, I may well cancel my subscription.


You have forgotten about balance and you no longer provide a magazine of value to the Dog
Fancy!

Hello,

My pup received his copies of the 2012 desk calendar... He loves it!!! He is August 23rd. His Aunt is sending him some sunglasses, and he is learning how to put his paw in his face and say, "please no autographs". He has requested a 'paw' stamp so that he can sign his page in everyones calendar.... Currently Higgins the Basset and Scout are serving as his entourage... We have created a monster!!!! Will the calendars be available in Europe... he has peeps over there as well.
