    Default How They Have All Changed!!!!!

    YouTube - German Shepherd half dog half frog
    I was looking at different sites about the shepard & came across this clip about how many of the breeds have changed. It's a snippit out of the pedigree exsposed clips I think but very interesting.
    Why do we seem to do this to so many breeds?
    Why not just make a new breed if you want it to look so different?
    I know there are breeds like the TM that we are only now finding out what we really should be aiming at due to better communications with Tibet & China now.
    But old English breeds that have been the same for centeries, why would they change now?

    That's from Pedigree Exposed Doco.
    I hate what they have done to some breeds.
    I can't believe that people think it's right.

    I know & they just keep sticking their head in the sand.
    Look at the English Bulldog can not even breed naturally anymore & has terrible breathing problems due to their squished up faces. As if they could be the true working dogs they where once breed for.
    The Neo's are so over wrinkled that they countinuly have skin infections & low imune levels due to the inbreeding. And again where once great working dogs & now they can hardly lumber around the show ring 1 time without having a break.
    I could go on & on, very sad..................

    i think it is so incredibly sad what people have done to these dogs!
    Those poor German shepherds can hardly walk!
    A lot of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels now (thanks to in-breeding) have a skull too small for their brain! and it causes excruciating pain for them! :O

    My Father used to breed GSD's for the RAAF and Police Force. They were awesome sound dogs, of both body and mind. Us girls used to walk around our town with our four GSD's off lead and go everywhere. No aggression and climb cliff's round-up our cattle and even go riding for miles with them along. But now, they would be shunned in the show ring. They were too straight and broad in the head. We sadly put the last one to sleep at age seventeen in 1974.........I would love to own a GSD of that type

    It's my opinion that a lot of people don't really care about the animals they're breeding- not really. They're in it to "improve" the standard. If they're taking the standard as a literal thing (rather then a guideline) is makes sense that they would go to extreme lengths to follow it to a t, and other like-minded people (a lot of them, it seems) are of course going to spend a lot of money to continue the same line of thinking.
