    I love how she's looking at the ribbons like "Wtf is this? I can't eat this. Can I have a real treat?"

    ^I'd like to see a pic of her from the side, to see how much of a slope she has in her hindquarters. German Shepherds are my fave breed, but they have been bred to such extremes this is often the result:


    The Old German Shepherd breed is trying to bring back the normal, straight, back again, so much better looking and healthier for the dogs, too.

    I wonder if the extreme breeding has led to the high rate of hip dysplasia in them? Mama and Daddy Bunny had one and had to have it put down because of hip dysplasia. It was horrible watching our pup suffer. I really want one, but I am afraid that would happen again.

    ^I don't know. Aside from the possible/obvious health issues, I think the sloping back is just terribly ugly. Makes the dog look like a mutant. At the dog park we go to, there's this one HUGE longhaired Old German Shepherd and it's gorgeous, with a beautiful straight back. Normal hind legs about the same height as the front legs. Gentle giant. Well, he appears a lot bigger than he is (which is not small or medium) but it's the GS's massive heads that make them appear much bigger than they are. This OGS is a dog and perhaps 1 inch taller than our Goldendoodle bitch, but because she kind of looks like a stuffed animal and the breeds that are in her (Golden Retriever and Standard Poodle) have much smaller heads, from a distance she looks much smaller.

    I watched the finals, the slope was comparable to that 2000's drawing above. The handler also had the dog stand exactly like the last picture, with the back legs looking like she was mid stride.

    I love German Shepards, but I fell I love with the Norwich and Norfolk terriers. So danged cute!

    I will never get that. Why would you want a dot to look like he can't walk properly, and on top of that, why do you want a breed with health problems? You don't need to be a vet to see how the back legs and hips will cause major problems later in their life. It's the same with many other breeds. Pugs and bulldogs who can't breath normally for example.

    I don't like the sloping back either. It looks like they are in pain. Why can't breeders just leave well enough alone?!

    There are other dogs who were changed for shows. I don't know breed names, but the Target dog's breed was changed. I don't remember the site I was on some years back, but there were many pictures of dogs who now look like mutants, but changed for show purposes. It's so sad, and some look deformed and in pain.

    Bull terriers? For the Target dogs, I mean.

    Yeah, not a breed I would choose, but like pits, almost every one I've met is adorable. I remember CharmedHour has bull terriers and they're so cute.
