Bernard years ago the st. Bernard was a very useful dog these dogs were taken into the cold mountains to find lost hikers and to help them home these dogs once wore kegs around their neck filled with something to warm up the people that he saved from the mountains today thanks to altered breeding these dogs are much larger than they used to be also they have pushed in faces and a great deal of extra skin sadly these changes in the breed have made him prone to a variety of problems such as eye and eye lid issues a spinal cord disorder called stockers paralysis and bleeding and clotting disorders also the changes made in breeding make these dogs slobber more than most breeds of dog the basset hound the basset hound years ago didn’t have such short legs they were short but nothing like they are today also his ears weren’t nearly as long as they are today finally there have been some serious changes in his eyes today’s basset hound has droopy eyes unfortunately these changes have opened up a whole slew of problems for the breed they have way too much skin which can lead to dermatitis in the folds the droopy eyes can result in severe eye problems and their short legs can cause spinal problems the English bulldog this breed has been changed through breeding over the years in the last 100 years of breeding changed this popular dog for the worst the major change was to make the dog larger there have also been changes made over the years in his appearance that make him look scarier and because of this the entire breed has had to suffer unfortunately these changes during breeding have made the English bulldog the most unhealthy breed of dog he lives on an average of just 6.25 years he’s prone to developing just about every disease imaginable subscribe for more

  1. Mutts are so much more natural than “purebreds” which are basically incest dogs. If people truly cared about dogs, they’d stop forcing them to fuck their family so they can have purebreds.

  2. Poor Basset Hound… They have mutated him to the point that he actually looks like he's is looking for someone to take him out of his misery.

  3. The closer the dogs look like to wolves, the less problems they have. It's sad, I rather just have a tamed wolf then have all of these dogs looking like that and going through problems.

  4. Here are the facts. The AKC is complicit in this. Nothing but a bunch of fat women breeding dogs in their back yards and telling every moron walking that they "are xperts with this breed". Nothing could be further from the truth. Operative word in AKC is CLUB..American Kennel Club. The AKC has ruined the GSD, Rottie, Labs and now that the Tibetan Mastiff is in AKC they will ruin that breed as well. On another note Vets are a problem, a big problem when it comes to nutrition…IAMS? Terrible. Hills Science Diet..Terrible. ANY product from Purina..TERRIBLE. Raw diet..Worse than terrible. Yeah, I know, wolves eat their food raw. Well a dog ain't a wolf.

  5. He didn't even mention that English bulldogs can't even give birth naturally anymore because the heads of the babies are too wide for the mother's birth canal.

  6. Are there any dog breeds that haven't been messed with as much or have their dog like instincts more? How do I make an informed decision if I ever want to adopt

  7. What most people don’t understand is that we haven’t had gene modifying technology until recently. This was going to happen either way.. it is only natural for species to change and/or evolve and adapt. This was inevitable. And I think this guy is blowing smoke… your dog can be perfectly healthy, trust me. But the only dog that looked different to be completely honest was the bull terrier

  8. What I took away from this video: every dog was the picture of perfect health 100 years ago and now they are all about to die in 5 minutes from breathing problems because every human being on earth didn't know to breed them.


  10. Not all German Shepherds have the sloping backs.
    Those look very weird to me, like dog hyenas. I see those kinds in police work quite often.

  11. There’s nothing wrong with mutts , people!! Think about it this way , you’ve seen how the offspring of people who are related come out…but the difference is when it comes to animals we just keep doing it , and doing it , and doing it until they look like a whole different species 🤦🏽‍♀️

  12. UNPOPULAR OPINION … i love dogs but not pugs Thanks to selective breeding we have Pugs .. i swear Pugs look fucking disguisting .. no nose bridge , oogly eyes thing looks like ET cross bred with a seal breathing with its mouth .. not considering all the gentic,muscular & cartilage issues it carries around.

  13. The changes that have been made, Just how have people affected the way these dogs have evolved? they would have breeded with or without people…

  14. Dog breeds begin to loose their natural traits when they get too popular with humans, and ignorant humans start to breed them incorrectly.

  15. Some of the breeds like the German Shepherd have now got health problems. One up the road had to be put down as its back legs went and it could not walk. Should have left them how they were. Very sad to see dogs suffer. Also the small breeds have breathing problems as their nose gets blocked up.

  16. The Older breeds aren’t coming back, German Shepherds needed that mixing to be saved, after WW2 they were near extinction due to use as War Dogs. There are not any more similar breeds to the original version.

  17. the same thing is happening to cats….. dear lord…. adopt from shelters for dogs and cats. adopt from a breeder only if you trust them

  18. I'd love to see your sources. (: while many of these are indeed genetic deformities caused by inbreeding, you also had problems with some of your information. The Saint Bernard never carried barrels of brandy around their necks. That was just something Hollywood made up.

  19. 1:40 broke my heart how humans could destroy dog like that just for our pleasure and satisfaction to how they look

  20. The pic of the "bearded collie" is actually a olde English sheepdog!!! They can't even get the breed's correct in this, let alone anything else!!!

  21. I have a jet black German Shepard working line with straighter back and it is an outclass guard dog. Cant stand the frog legs of show lines. Working lines are a lot more active and alert than the show lines.
    And I also have the genuine old breed of bull terrier. And man that dog is very very brave and has hunting instincts.

  22. Bullshit my dad has almost 25 saintbernards i grewed up with one and saintbernards are still used in the snowmountains and they have been super lovely

  23. Okay, after the first one I knew it was someone with no clue about dogs :he can get frustrated that he doesn't has a tail and get agressive. Wtf?!

  24. I have a German shepherd and yes he is very muscular and large but his back is not down like others, he has a nice up right back like the picture from 100 years ago, interesting

  25. I have a Old Boomer Dog (Shih TZu and Lha apso) and they told me they only could weight 10 KG ONLY, he is more then 20 KG IF not more 😱 and then I have a other Boomer dog (Maltezer and Shih TZU) whe only have him Friday 30 Aug A WEEK and he is like only 2 pounds DAMN he has more hair then his body, I find it so sad that people do that and I want the OLD dogs back

  26. The funny thing about the changes of the dog is that if you take a good look the dog just looks more disgusting. Especially the smaller dogs, they look like something out of a horror movie.
