    I was correct!

    There are three cephalic indexes. Dolichocephalic (long head), mesocephalic (moderate head), and brachycephalic (short head).

    The pointer and the clumber were the biggest surprises to me.
    I can't vouch for the validity of that link but it seems genuine, found the same study on multiple sites.

    They are a relatively new breed over here though aren't they? So there wouldn't be a lot of information about them originating from here.

    I think that you would be hard pressed to find a Boston breeder that doesn't show & completes all health testing & is an ethical breeder.

    Very true Mac, My concern is that way to often I hear breeders refering potential new puppy owners to find a registered breeder, not those bad byb people. This imparts a perception that "all" registered breeders are ethical. I have heard many people say "they were registered", thought we were doing the right thing? Your right when they say they should know better, but how can they when the popular misconception is that registered breeders are held up as the gods of puppy breeding world in the media, and sites like this one?

    The emphasis in media i believe needs to make people more aware that unethical breeders are the same as BYB, and when choosing a pup you need to physicaly see the health check documents on the parents and generations before.
    I have never seen anything that refers to 'all' registered breeders as 'gods of the puppy world'. I have seen a LOT of information given about researching breeders, what to look for in a registered breeder, how to find the breeder that suits you etc. Frankly the media is a lot more focused on bad mouthing all registered breeders than they are on promoting them as the place to go for a puppy. Look at that tripe "Pedigree Dogs Exposed", hardly paints any breeders in a positive light does it??

    There is no misconception. There are people who go out of their way to screw others over. The people who have taken their time and researched their breed, breeder & the health of their puppies parents etc do not fall for this. The ones who have rushed into it and not done their research have not fallen for the crap spouted by the bad breeders.

    There are too many ways for people to shrug their responsibilities off onto someone else. As a pet buyer you are solely responsible for doing your own research and ensuring that you are getting what you pay for. IMO If you can't be bothered doing that you have no right to complain when you get something that is of lesser quality.
