    Arrow 100 Years of Breed "Improvement"

    Purebreds are the worst! They are riddled with genetic disease. Not every mutt is made from purebreds, either. Breeding purebreds is just genetic manipulation. It's called eugenics. People made dogs with super short, ****** up faces. Kennel clubs don't ever let dogs mate with another dog outside their breed. Purebreds are inbred and it causes them serious health problems. Tiny dogs know there is something wrong with them. Bulldogs are total genetic failure. They can barely breath. Their tails can become ingrown. They shouldn't even be alive. Kennel clubs could fix all those problems if they just allowed outcrossing. People need to stop worrying about breeds.

    I'm sure the people that have and love their bulldogs wouldn't be to impressed with you or your opinions. The constitution guaranteed us freedom of speech.

    I have to say, I agree. Bulldogs are cute but a mess.
    "Freedom of Speech" is supposed to be *free*
    What's wrong with having an opinion, especially if that opinion is based in fact?

    We've owned many pure bred dogs over the years, pretty much Standard Schnauzers for around 25yrs. now, and we've been lucky, just had one pass at a younger age from cancer, but it wasn't breed-related. We also had a Doberman, Chow and Alaskan Malamute.

    There are health issues regarding particular breeds for sure, dogs like Pugs with the short face and protruding eyes can actually suffer from problems with their eyes popping out of their sockets. I have nothing against pure bred dogs or reputable dog breeders, but as noted in the article, over the years, to create certain breeds, people have definitely fooled with mother nature, sometimes to the detriment of the animal.

    well Wolf unless you have a bulldog and first hand experience with them you don't know what you are talking about. They are a high maintenance dog, are prone to certain issues more than other dogs but if people choose to own them its no concern of yours. No one said you have to get one, not everyone is enthralled with your choice to own reptiles but no one is telling you they shouldn't exist. People have a right to choose what they want, Actually no one cares what your opinion is.
