    Then why are they called "pureblood"?

    I looked up "pureblood" in the dictionary and it described it as "of unmixed ancestry".

    They don't call me "Captain Obvious" for nothing.

    [QUOTE=Captain Obvious;1057920958]First - if a pureblood pug has problems because it's face is flattened, I'd say that's an evolutionary issue - same for the others.[QUOTE]

    This year, the BBC decided not to cover Crufts, Britain's most prestigious dog show, after the network aired a documentary on the health problems caused by breeding for looks in some types of dogs, such as pugs, who have breathing problems due to the squashed faces required by their breed standard.

    David Frei, the voice of Westminster for the past 20 years, acknowledges that there is a "Westminster effect": Whichever breed wins experiences a spike in popularity. Unfortunately, those popular breeds often end up in animal shelters when people belatedly realize they can't handle a dog that grows to be 80 pounds or needs to be exercised five hours a day.

    I also posted a bunch of other links in this thread that talk about the topic of designer breeding. One link has pics of certain breeds from the turn of the century, and you can see how the breeds has evolved.

    I actually agree with PETA somewhat in this case there is no important reason to breed dogs into a debilitating condition just for the sake of some warped idea of dog beauty.

    Here's what looks like a decent source for dog breeding information, though I can't confirm the credibility of this source:

    Re: PETA dresses in KKK garb outside Westminster Dog Show

    Here's a doc by the BBC done last August that was the primary reason why the BBC will not air Crufts, "the world's greatest dog show."

    In response to the BBC documentary, Britain's Kennel Club undertook some aggressive housekeeping, warning breed clubs that the most extreme traits wouldn't be tolerated any more. It was too little, too late, however; the BBC decided they were going to stop airing Crufts, and the show lost the support of its longtime pet food sponsor as well.

    Are dog shows hurting dogs?


    Here's "Pedigree Dogs Exposed:"
    Documentary - BBC - Pedigree Dogs Exposed Video by Eric - MySpace Video

    It's an hour long, but quite interesting.

    People still take PETA semi-seriously?


    They should go back to their old uniform... you know... naked chicks running around protesting fur.

    I liked them much better that way.

By intentionally breeding a purebred dog, you're almost guaranteeing a dog will have some bad health problem.
    This is due to inbreeding. Purebreds are sorta like the royalty of times past, they would inbreed to "preserve the bloodline" sort of thing. Humans have been selectively breeding dogs for a long long time, that's why there are so many variants; we made a lot of different ones for various tasks. But there is a problem now with purebreds in that the way to guarantee them is through inbreeding and of course inbreeding produces greater chances of recessive genes being activated. Purebreds do suffer a lot of unique disease because of how they were bred. It's kinda sad cause dogs are meant to be happy and run around and play fetch...at least that's what I'd do if I was a dog.

As a side note, she hates "designer breeds" like labradoodles and cockapoos with a passion. Nowdays, you can breed any two dogs, and get people to pay out the nose for a "designer dog" that they'd pass over in a shelter. It's sad.
    Shelter dogs are the way to go, you can find many good animals there.

    The thing I hate are those hand dogs...not even lap dogs, some lap dogs are really cool. Hand dogs...and the people who own them.

    Middleground, did you not see earlier where everything British can be rubbished simply because of personal opinion?

    Anyhow - I'm certain the problems that affect some Spaniel breeds are just as similar in the US and in the UK and Australia, that the problems that affect some breeds hips (Alsations) are just as similar in the US as in the UK etc.

    But then we're apparently "PC" so that discounts the evidence we might produce.

    I just rubbished the word "rubbished" for that very reason. It's in the bin, next to the stale biscuits. Now I'm going to drink some Bovril.
