    I've just been made aware of this on Facebook and would be interested to know if it's true. Another member on here has tried a test advert but wasn't stopped.
    @petforum can you shed any light on this?
    If it is true it would be a step in the right direction but not allowing breeds to be specified without pedigree registration would be better.

    I don't know but I think it was pets4homes I once saw a Yorkie saying it was registered with TICA as its pedigree.

    What will happen with dogs, which does happen will they will register the dogs/puppies on the activity register. Where they have to be registered for agility but don't have to be a specific breed.

    I am guessing people will just tick boxes too, and either say in the description or do the 'waiting' for papers

    Surely they can just say "purebred" instead?

    I so far haven't managed to find anyone who has actually received this, rather than a shared screen shot. Personally I think it's fake news, and also totally useless news. All it's doing is prohibiting the use of the word 'pedigree' in an advert for an unregistered cat or dog. Until they prohibit the use of breed names for unregistered animals nothing will change, and when that happens the BYBs will decamp elsewhere that's less fussy.
