Misrepresentation and Fraud
Kennel Club Secretary
It was some time before anyone noticed that the proprietors and directors of Little Rascals (Penny Swindells, Bridgett Dickens, Peter Dickens and Edward Swindells) were fraudulently using the name of Kennel Club Secretary, Caroline Kisko, without her knowledge and permission, to list her as a false associate of Little Rascals on the company database AIHIT.
Swindells and Dickens had attempted to make it appear that Caroline Kisko endorsed and was involved with Little Rascals Pets Ltd, and they did this by using a quote Ms Kisko had made in 2010 relating to microchipping, published in dogworld.co.uk :
Swindells and Dickens were asked several times why Ms Kisko was included in their company information, but they didn’t respond or remove her name until The Kennel Club became directly involved:
“Less than truthful”

Kennel Club Registered
The Kennel Club has confirmed that Little Rascals had never been registered as breeders:
Little Rascals advertised these German Shepherd puppies on several of their usual classified selling sites. They claimed the puppies belonged to a friend but simultaneously advertised the puppies on classified sites in the UK and on a selling site in Ireland, and they did not say where the puppies were located. Either way, they’re not advertised with passports.
“We at Little rascals now have available a litter of beautiful black and tan →German Shepherd girls and boys. They are pure bred but as both parents are owned by our friend’s we are unable to introduce you to them. These sturdy, inquisitive puppies are now 10 weeks old and ready to leave for their new homes”.
Little Rascals’ Pedigree Certificates
Anyone with a Pedigree Certificate from Little Rascals who has tried to search the kennel names and ancestry will already know that it’s a useless piece of paper, but by labelling dogs as ‘pedigree’, Swindells and Dickens are able to increase the price of puppies without having to carry out the health and breed-specific tests associated with responsible breeders [*Latest].
Dogs with genuine pedigrees are usually registered and traceable through authentic databases, and even a random Internet search of ancestry will often throw back a result. But with Little Rascals‘ pedigree ‘kennel’ names that isn’t possible, because the names they use are completely random and relate to absolutely nothing.
Knowing Little Rascals like to advertise on every available medium and classified site, it doesn’t seem likely they would miss a chance to promote themselves on established pedigree websites, such as the Pedigree Database and Champdogs if they were really selling genuine pedigrees themselves (actually, they do get a mention on the Champdogs discussion board, but it’s not favourable [→Champdogs Information Exchange]).
These are just two examples of pedigrees where the lineage/ancestry is fabricated, complete with spelling error for Lhasa Apso —
