The Bizarre Truth About Purebred Dogs

While surfing through youtube, I found a funny video call The Bizarre Truth About Purebred Dogs created by CollegeHumor. The video talks about how purebred dogs even though cute and good looking they have a very high chance of have a genetic disease due the why they are breed. This is caused by humans forcing dogs to inbreed because of popular demand from people who would pay good money to own one. By do so most of dog that are inbred are not healthy and have genetic disorders or disease. Unfortunately these dog don't have any say on who they want to mate with as the choice is made by the animal breeder/owner. To me creating purebred dogs is some what like animal cruelty or abuse.

  1. I really like this post. As a child I know my grandfather always kept purebred dogs. He was a hunter and kept Vizsla's. He told me how Viszla's where Hungarian in origin and where extremely loyal. They where sleek to and specially trained to retrieve birds for my grandfather when he would hunt. I always loved his dogs, but I think if I ever get a dog it wont be a purebred. My grandpa used his dogs for hunting. They where bred to do that. I'm not a hunter, so I don't need a hunting dog. I think that is where I stand divided on this issue. While the majority of dogs should breed to promote bio-diversity, some working dogs such as sheep dogs, Vizslas, and the like should be bred to fulfill their role.
