  • This is a huge problem.  But I'm not certain it can be repaired. The problem didn't start because they are purebred. The standard for this breed is not close to the original standard. The original standard was for a fully functional dog. Today's standard the dog has no function. Those breeders many years ago bred for an exegerated feature and messed up royally.  Then said this what everyone should want. This did not improve the breed. It made it much worse.

  • Terence Harris  it's taking the breed backwards but I see the exotics are fading away now so hopefully everyone gets back on the right track breeding correct dogs

  • The way some of these dogs are being bred is sad, health is taking a backseat for money.
