dog breed “improvement”

cuter dog, worse dog

為了讓狗隻銷量更好,繁殖場一直嘗試培育出樣貌更可愛的狗隻。若對比一百年前與現今的狗隻便會發現狗隻被不斷配種改變外觀,但各種的改變會影響狗隻的身體機能,為牠們帶來更多的疾病及健康問題。

breeders have been trying to “improve” different features of dogs.  if you compare photos of dog breeds of 100 years ago with nowadays breeds, you would realized human have been trying to change their physically appearances to “improve” how they look. but these changes would affect their health and cause different physical problems.
