The plight of the pedigreed dog

The BBC has done a wonderful job in exposing the genetic flaws found in many of today’s dog breeds. I know all about the Chow Chow and the German Shepard breed with their inherited flaws. In the USA many top breeders have their breeding stock tested before they are allowed to breed. In the video below it talks about “culling”, in Britain it means to kill while in the USA it means to remove from the gene pool via neutering. The video below is a long one and I highly recommend you watch it if you are a dog lover or are considering a particular dog breed for your next dog.
