Dogs Die After Being Left In German Judge's Car In Sweltering Heat.
The Skye Terrier community worldwide have been shocked by the news that two Skye’s have died, and a third fighting for life, after being left in a hot car.
It is alleged that approved FCI judge,Dr Wilfred Peper (Peppermint) , left the dogs in his car whilst attending an AGM of the Pinscher Schnauzer Club in Alsfeld , Germany.
It is understood that a vet who happened to be on site took care of the dogs that were still alive.
Born in Dortmund, Germany Dr Wilfred Peper is a successful breeder of West Highland Terriers with over 30 homebred champions. He is the author of several terrier books, an approved FCI judge & has judged in more than 18 countries worldwide, including, Europe, Australia & America.The club has completely distanced itself from the behaviour of the Judge. A statement from Club Chairman of the PSC Klaus Leutermann indicates that Dr Peper , a breeding judge of the German Kennel Club, was there to evaluate the dogs at the meeting. Dr Peper has now been suspended by the club with immediate effect and so will not be able to participate in Club events.
