Worthless Pedigrees and Bogus Companies continued
Following on from an earlier post covering fake pedigree certificates, showing that some owners of Little Rascals‘ puppies have ‘pedigree‘ papers from Kennel Registration (kennelreg.org.uk), those puppy owners might wish to know who supplied their fake certificates via Little Rascals—
Peter Jones and Julian King already had a ban on keeping dogs through a previous RSPCA prosecution several years ago and, if they had wanted to, Little Rascals could quite easily have discovered that information with a simple two minute search of the names associated with Kennel Registration via Companies House [link].
Banks, Jones and King have now been banned from keeping any animal for life, but their website is still active, taking money and dishing out fake pedigree certificates.
Anyone running a respectable, transparent business would ensure that other companies and businesses they deal with are legitimate and genuine. As Swindells and Dickens have 50+ years experience in the dog breeding business, it’s safe to say they’re not novices and certainly know a thing or two about business associations [link].
So when it comes to dealing with people who are publicly corrupt (and outright evil in the case of Banks, Jones and King), there can only be two possible explanations why Little Rascals do business with them —
—that it has never occurred to Swindells and Dickens to run a check on Kennel Registration, because they also lack honesty and integrity and couldn’t care less who they’re dealing with; or
—that Swindells and Dickens have always known exactly who runs kennelreg.org.uk , and since the information has been publicly available for years, it simply isn’t possible that they didn’t know.
Facts NO ONE Could Miss
It’s been common knowledge for years, especially within the dog breeding fraternity, that these three were puppy farmers and traffickers — Grace Banks (born Leah Rogers, also known as Lilly Cooper, Holly Saxon, Sarah Connor, Tracey Allan), her brother Julian King (aka Alec Rogers, Thomas Spencer) and Peter Jones (born Aneirin Skully, also known as George Cooper, Marco Emme, Michael Emme).
Jones and King (aka Aneirin Skully and Alec Rogers) were found guilty of animal abuse and received 10 year bans apiece several years ago—

More sordid connections
The Bolands — close friends and business associates of Swindells and Dickens and labelled the ‘largest puppy farmers in Europe’.
Gerry Smyth — Northern Ireland puppy farmer associate and friend of Dickens.
These conditions are regarded as ‘satisfactory‘ in Northern Ireland (UK) as far as issuing a breeding licence goes, so it doesn’t take much imagination to realise what goes on in Southern Ireland.
