I think us humans have a lot to answer for....breed perfection is in the eye of the holder and in my eyes my mutts are perfect just the way they are.

It’s a bloody disgrace! :mad:
The problem is that the people who should be seeing this most likely don’t.
IMO – if there is no money to be made anymore and ‘breeders’ would not be able to sell there dogs and people would instead support breeders that put health and temperament before some ‘breed standard’ the situation would change very quickly.
The same goes for so called designer breeds. Personally I prefer mixes because I like dogs to look and move like dogs and find many of the extreme physical and behavioral trades that some single breeds display undesirable and hard to live with.
Spread the word – it is the only way anything will ever change.
