    Default How dogs have changed in 100 years

    I found this while reading my morning news and it is quite an interesting little article (sadly not detailed enough) especially with much less wrinkly bully (compared to a heavily one) it always made my wandered how a modern bulldogs if put back in time be capable of bull fighting (it would be impossible) and the way boxers looked have surprised me quite a lot xx
    Anyway i thought someone might find this interesting (Lisa i hope it is ok for me to post the link xx)

    Interesting article...I am always conflicted about this issue and my love of the bulldog breed.

    I am glad poor breeding practices are getting some attention though. I think the New York Times article on how unhealthy our bullies have become really shed light on this important issue.
