I really liked this. Except for the very very end part with the wolf.
Its a good video that displays (in very basic way) what happens when you breed away from function ability.. Any breed out there thats being bred only for the show ring will eventually turn out this way.. Its already happen as you can see through just a few generations.. You can also begin to see this in American Bullies only after a decade and a half or so.what a disgusting video. i cant stand people who breed only for looks, especially when that look makes the dogs suffer
This is why you have working stock and show stock.. Show stock (bred strictly show or heavy on show with some go) is where majority of your issues come into hand where as your working stock is where the hound lays.. If you look at breeders many working stock hounds look far, far different than show dogs as they are still build for purpose.. A working neo is not going to have any where near the amount of issues as a show neo.. Now that is not to say these 'newer' health problems haven't tainted the working stock in some degree however a proper breeder will see these issues arising and stop it before it gets out of hand.. As a working hound that cannot work is useless.. Just as a show person, a working hound that cannot fit within the registry standard is useless as they are only concerned about show titles..It is very sad when we look at what we have done to the different breeds. I was considering getting a neo a couple of months back, so I did a bit of research into the breed: and what I read about their load of health issues was not at all encouraging! One guy on the neo forum made the comment that, honestly- they were lucky if they even got 4 years out of their dogs! Shocking!!!!!!!!!!!
But at the same time we see this type of extreme living every day. Our houses get bigger, our cars- our greed! Bigger, faster, beating this record, then that record. Where's the simple life?
