      This. All domestication comes only with physical deficits. Anything that doesn't resemble a wolf is genuiely fucked up. If aliens ever come to invade earth they will use this examples to justify genociding humans, if they still have the need to do so.

    I've seen too many hukies die of epilepsy, and too many labs die of cancer.
    dogs are not toys, and they are not consumer products.
    Whatever you think a dog should look like, recognize that's what the dog must live like.

      Show breeding can help to preserve endangered breeds of dogs. Additionally, show breeders are usually very careful about inbreeding and only breed dogs that are healthy and have good temperaments. Show breeding also helps to standardize the appearance of a breed, which can be helpful for people who are looking for a specific type of dog. Finally, show breeding is not necessarily elitist; many show breeders are dedicated to making sure that their dogs are accessible to everyone, regardless of socio-economic status.

        tldr: dog shows make sure dogs look the same forever or look increasingly ridiculous. they swear they’re careful about inbreeding and having to put your 7 year old dog down isnt a big deal.

      This is false. Italian Cane Corsos are not different than regular Cane Corsos. They are both large dogs that were bred for hunting large game.

      The only difference is that the Italian Cane Corso is a little bit more expensive because people believe in bloodline none sense.

      >Inb4 muh euro bloodline is better than ameribloodline

      Reality: Italian breeders breed their Cane Corsos for certain breed faults that can be replicated anywhere irrespective of the country.

    Disgusting what humans have done to dogs over generations. They shouldn’t have droopy wrinkly faces or floppy ears

    "but my dog came from le champion working line nothing could go wrong because those are bred to be healthy not to win shows"
    Well actually they are bred to win shows. Perhaps by working line, you meant farm dog mutts bred by people who can't afford the working line...

      Some of those "mutts" are worth 10 grand to the right bloke if they do a good job and he needs one in a hurry

          This is why wise farmers breed and train their own dogs. Some of them have teams of like 8. Might be 80 thousand if you went to run out and buy them. Not that many people need that many but they will be different ages different stages of training etc if they run a big team. I watch a guy pay 14 thousand for a good huntaway after his worker buggered off and took his dogs with him

          That's called having more money than sense. Things are valuable though if they can plug and play into a farm. And the funny thing is, if it was a farm/station bred thing, probably could have got it as puppy for 500 dollars. The value is the work it can do and a couple years training more than anything. At least that's the way it works in NZ. People don't go to "breeders" for working dogs they go to oh that's so and so's pup I saw him at the trials, he's one of old mates dogs who runs that big station hes got some good blood. I'll take one of those pups and train it. Unless they find themselves in the shit and suddenly unable to run their place because a key dog died or got injured or something, or their worker left and they realize he was doing all the heavy lifting on the dog work and had no other decent ones of their own, then they might have to spend some $

    huskies have learned to play football! funny! cute!

    they're still pretty much the same dog on the outside but show line inbreeding has increased the incidence of epilepsy, zinc malabsorption, hypothyroidism, four distinct eye diseases, and laryngeal paralysis. the only way to get epilepsy out of a bloodline is to cull the entire litter if it ever shows up and never use the parents again. breeders will never do this. if you want a husky as healthy as they used to be, you're free to ask some inuit fuck from siberia, or get one of the larger mutts from alaska that are no longer really huskies from generations of being crossed with every other sled dog breed and some that aren't even sled dogs. in fact, the ones in russia really don't look the same as the original batch the kennel clubs based their standards off of either.

    just a reminder dogs aren't ruined just by making them physically diseased. even if your dog still looks the same as they did 100 years ago, breeders have likely ruined it in other ways !SPECIFICIALLY BECAUSE THEY WERE TRYING TO MAKE SURE IT LOOKED THE SAME!

    show breeding is horrible even if the dog is still usable as a reference for your gay ass fursona
