A book I read said short muzzles have to be continuously selected for because its against nature,and that person was pro Brachy dogs.
If you breed the most moderate dogs in a litter,and keep doing such, I think you can get a dog like this,but people tend to do the opposite and chose the most extreme in a litter. The hair may be cut also,not sure.
The Peke in this video isn’t clipped, just another example of what happens when you don’t select for ridiculous amounts of hair. She has long featherings but shorter hair that lays flat over the body without all that unnecessary undercoat. I have a Pekingese cross with hair like this although I shave him off completely for the warmer weather. Sadly he has horrible front legs that will probably mean he develops arthritis but he did come out with a nice coat & no excessive snoring or panting unless he has been exercising for a decent length of time. He is also quite an agile little dog despite his front legs.
I have a pedigree (so called) show quality Peke too, she is approaching 3 & already has spinal issues, she will also be undergoing surgery on her soft palate/stenotic nares in the coming weeks. So far the cross has not had any other issues besides his bowed front legs (touch wood).
I was brainwashed by pedigree snobs, like so many others I was told to go to a good registered breeder & you will receive a healthy dog, no matter the breed. 4 years on I’m no longer under these sorts of delusions through my own unbiased research. The picture of health for me now is the likes of a dingo.
A huge thank you to people like Retriever man, Chris from border wars & Jemima Harrison for spreading the message. I know sometimes it seems like an uphill battle but It’s had a huge impact me & I’m a better person for being aware of the atrocities that reign supreme within the world of pedigree dogs.
