    What's up with some of these Tex Mex dogs looking like they are part Dachshund ? Same as the Whitsell dogs. What causes a line to start throwing that ?

    Can't speak for the Tex Mex dogs but a large percent of the Whitsell dogs today are so inbred you sometimes see the traits you mentioned as well as worse. Now I am not saying there are not good Whitsell dogs still around, just saying those that got it good are keepin it on lockdown lol...and the rest is inbred to peddle. Just my thoughts.

    Seems counter productive. Breeding performance dogs with deformities


    Sadly making money is all that matters to some. I remember reading a thread on here in the archives where one man proudly bred only dogs with a sever under bite because thats what people wanted in his area and he couldn't keep up with the demand.

    I had to Google image Daschunds to see if the breed has changed somewhat then how I recalled it. I fail to see a connection between the Tex Mex dogs I have seen and Daschunds in terms of looks lol.

    There is however no one on this planet that will convince me Gr Ch Barracuda's actual sire was not a bloodhound ;)

    Bimbo is five dogs long and half a dog high. Looks like a dachshund to me. Please have a look at spanish bravebull kennels. They run tex mex dogs and their dogs all look like that. I am just stating the facts and asked a valid question. What is the cause of or mentality behind breeding short dogs with bow legs that look like they are part bully ? Maybe I am missing something ?

    I think your worries is looks and it should be on performance

    Function follows form. APBT are high on the leg for a reason. Yes, there are certain shorter dogs that are good but those are exceptions not the rule. Not downing the line at all I am aware of all the success they are having but I am asking what caused this shortness on the leg and in some cases bow legs ? I understand why people inbreed but I have been taught that you should only inbreed two exceptional animals with little to no health defects. In my book short bow legs are a health defect. So you inbreed to retain certain traits,but compromise on form. What happens if that shitty form gets carried forward and locked with all your desired traits. I think this is an interesting topic because if people are inbreeding for the sake of only retaining one trait (most probably mouth) but willing to compromise on other traits then that brings us back to the question of whether gameness is even a consideration for breeders anymore ?

    Brood stock is a term that is used too often when describing dogs that are inbred to the point of having physical deformities. I am aware of the fact that when outcrossed these dogs produce great individuals because I have seen this first hand, but there were dogs that retained some of the physical issues passed down from the brood bitch. I don't know about everyone on here but personally I breed to improve or maintain with structure and performance as the most important considerations.

    point taken pastorD but whos to say that these dogs do not display gameness now to be honest i have seen dogs with the long and short build down from afogutu and i was nothing less than impressed with the performance of said dogs sturdy strong dominating dogs and i actualy like the looks of the dogs but your right it can be over done to a fault also hip displasia(sp) weak ankles and some more things could be a problem but it doesnt pop up in every dog that looks this way

    what? the dogs that win get bred. obviously the dogs are physically able to perform. nobody cares how or why you breed.

    I've dealt with health issues before, a lot of times they look perfect until stressed. I only linebreed dogs that have complete workups. I run A SMA24 blood test then you have to have somebody that can read it right. Very rarely I get A dog 50 lb. CW. Most are in the low40's to 30's getting these bigger and bigger dogs is A problumn to.
