(Update) Breeds: Breeders & Rescue Groups

I have came up with a idea. To list all common breeds are asked every day "Where to find breeder for ___" Or "Where find this breed group___" It's all here for the noobs/newbies

Not all are listed everywhere just varieties I listed UK Kennel Clubs, Canada, USA and even rescue groups/Kennel Clubs from all over the world not just USA. You can always check your local listing at www.petfinder.com for USA Shelters. Also you can go onto any of these Kennel Clubs and ask for a breeder to referral you a rescue group or/and a reputable breeder in your area etc Australia Area to look for a reputable breeder http://www.dogzonline.com.au/breeds/list.asp
Herding Group
Australian Cattle Dog

I think that this is an excellent idea
if nothing else it would give people a good place to start......

I think lots of folks don't know where to start in order to find a well bred dog from a reputable breeder..... I know that before I got my dogs I had not idea there even was a golden retriever club or flat coated retriever club.....

so definitely an excellent idea

lots of work so good on your for doing it.
perhaps we can sticky it someplace

This is a great list. I was just wondering if you have ever contacted any of them??? I own a pet related business and donate a percentage of sales to rescues/shelters. I have tried to contact so many of them through emails and phone messages but I never seem to hear back from them? It's not like I'm trying to sell them something I'm trying to help them????? I would have thought that they would all be interested???

Maybe I'm not reaching the right people? Any suggestions on how I might go about getting in touch with the "right" people?

I'm new to the board and haven't checked all of the posts in this thread.
But of course one of best resources to find rescue groups is PetFinder.com.

Looking forward to coming back here from time to time, as I am the animal columnists for the Star-News, out of Wilmington, NC.

Thanks so much for this list, it's easy to get disheartened with all the dog abuse you hear about and see all the time, and all the puppies in tiny cages at the pet stores. It's so sad. This forum has shown me that there are plenty of responsible pet owners out there. You guys are great! If I ever get another dog I'll know where to look.
