Scottish Deerhound Petition 2 years 3 months ago #42885

Led by Charlie Spence and Claire Cartmell we have started a petition on change.org to re-designate the breed currently registered as the Deerhound to the Scottish Deerhound in recognition of its iconic status as the only native Scottish hound.

Please see the petition which can be found here .

There are further details on a new web sitehere including our letters of support to date.

Please support the petition. Thank you.

Great idea, afterall most of us call our dogs Scottish Deerhounds. Really annoying when visitors to our village meet us with our dogs the first question is 'are they Irish Wolfhounds?' And we reply that no they are Scottish Deerhounds. Strange everyone knows about IRISH Wolfhound.
I just urge everyone to sign this petition and share with as many people as possible.
thank you Charlie Spence and Claire Cartmell.

Ps my whole family has signed :)

Scottish Deerhound Petition 2 years 2 months ago #42896

First I must admit that I have not signed the petition, and will not. There are online petitions about everyting nowadays and they have lost effect long time ago. And it certainly will not convince the old folks in the FCI about anything at all. Their ivory tower is out of reach for everything.
But of course the name Scottish Deerhound is deserved and should be so. What I can do and will do, is to use the name troughout. That does not sound like much, but I hope it will be a little more than just that.
Last year Ironstone and Lieve from this forum talked me into writing a book about my SCOTTISH Deehounds adventures. I am writing on it, and have made sure it reads Scottish Deerhound now whereever the name of the breed is used.
If the term Scottish Deerhound becomes the most used term, perhaps even the old folks in the FCI will realize... in 100 years or so. But the Scottish Deerhound is an old breed, and they are patient..

Hello,

Of course it's each to decide whether he signed the petition or not.
The Petition is for the UK Kennel Club, not for the FCI.

Nice to hear, Kim, that you're writing a book.

Regards
Joerg and Yoki + Lucy dh:) dh:)

I signed the petition, because there are many deer hunting hounds, there are many Scottish breeds, but there is only one Scottish deerhound.

September campaign update
The Scottish Deerhound Support Group




1. Sep. 2015 — Campaign update from Charlie Spence and the Deerhound Support Group - thank you all ever so much for all your support. Keep the signatures coming. Developments are that correspondence remains ongoing with the Kennel Club (Breed Standards Sub-Committee) and the Breed Club as to the best way forward. The petition to date provides evidence to the Kennel Club and the Deerhound Club (who have to process the application to the Kennel Club) of the broad support for this campaign. Keep up the momentum - we are getting close to 1000 supporters!

Scottish Deerhound Petition 2 years 1 month ago #43009

Hello,

This information is from the FCI breeds nomenclature (not KC). In all languages except English, is Scottish in the breed name.
I also think this must be a name change in Scottish Deerhound for the breed name in English.

Citation FCI:
English: DEERHOUND
Deutsch/German: SCHOTTISCHER HIRSCHHUND
Français/French: LEVRIER ECOSSAIS
Español/Spanish: LEBREL ESCOCÉS

Scottish Deerhound Petition 1 year 10 months ago #43101



The Scottish Deerhound Support group wrote to the Deerhound Club Committee prior to their meeting on 21st Nov to request a postal ballot to establish a mandate or not from the club members for the re-designation of the breed by the Kennel Club. We have not yet heard back from the committee. We wish everyone a Happy Christmas and we'll keep you updated in the New Year.

Thank you all for your support - Scottish Deerhound Support Group
