When You Realize The Truth About Purebred Dogs, It Will Make You Sick. The Photos Say It All.
The wide variety of dog breeds that exist in the world can be attributed to selective breeding. It has influenced the shape and size of dogs for thousands of years. While many breeds have existed for a very long time, some are not what we recognize them to be today. Purebred dogs were bred to perfect certain characteristics. But eventually they grew to the point of now only resembling their former selves, basically becoming inbred mutants which are prone to genetic disorders. Many times these disorders can lead to severe discomfort and pain throughout the dog’s life.
The dogs on the left are images from ‘Breeds of All Nations’, a book published in 1915. Side-by-side we see the more modern versions of these same breeds. It’s a very surprising comparison.
Breeders will actually euthanize perfectly healthy puppies as an attempt to ensure their dog fits the so-called “breed standard”. Unfortunately, this is the true reality of dog breeding. And yet it is another reason why you should always adopt rather than buy a purebred.
Everyone needs to realize this unfortunate reality. Please share this with others.
