A Century Of Breeding, The Shocking Results Of Dog Breeding: Before & After


The dog blogger MusMusculus published old and modern dog photos side by side, wondering if the hundred years of breeding improved or deformed the dog breeds. The common perception of purebred dogs is that they are more striking, beautiful animals than they would be without human intervention.
However, strong photographic evidence has emerged that shows how 100 years of breeding has actually warped the good looks of the original dogs.

1. Bull Terrier

Today’s dog looks like a statue representation of the original Bull Terrier. The skull has changed and the torso is thicker along with obsessive tail chasing and teeth problems.


2. Basset Hound

This dog is noticeably lower to the ground and it’s ears have grown to three times their size. They also have loose skin and droopy eyes that didn’t exist in the past.


3. Boxer

The Boxer’s face has shortened up and the muzzle is now turned up. This has caused the dog to have problems with temperature control in hot weather and has a high cancer rate.


4. English Bulldog

The English Bulldog has become very unhealthy, often not living much past 6 years. Their oddly large proportion make it difficult for them to procreate or do much of anything else.


5. Dachshund

The Dachshund’s legs have gotten so short, the body almost touches the ground, while their backs ad necks have gotten longer. This makes them susceptible to intervertebral disc disease which can result in paralysis.


6. German Shepherd

The German Shepherd is considered one of the most ruined dog breeds. They are bigger but a lot less capable.


7. Pug

Pugs have developed a host of problems, from high blood pressure and heart issues, to breathing problems, overheating and dental problems. And that cute curled tail could is actually a defect that could lead to paralysis.


8. St. Bernard

The terms “Super Size Me” should apply to the St. Bernard. The dog is overgrown while its face is shorter. They have excessive skin and are no longer working dogs because they easily overheat.
