The Unhealthiest Pedigrees of Canines 

Our interference has resulted in a situation where not all dogs have the genetic health that they should have. 

Many different dog breeds have emerged in recent centuries as a result of selective breeding for desirable traits.  

Additionally, there are cases where these traits, or the inbreeding that produces them, pose a significant threat to human health.

There has been an ongoing effort by scientists, animal rights activists, and even some breeders to highlight the situation of these unhealthy dogs. 

Even while there are a lot of people in these groups who think we can still change 

breeding techniques for the better, several nations have passed laws that make it very difficult, if not impossible, to breed specific types of dogs.  

Public awareness campaigns targeting particular breeds have been initiated by groups like the Brachycephalic Working Group.
