This is Angel an ex racing Greyhound i bumped into a few weeks ago. She is very sweet natured and was having a wonderful time running all over the beach. How nice to have a dog like this with a noble ancestry than some of the inbred mutts i saw at crufts this week. Breathing problems , back problems , hip displasia , knackered kidneys the list is endless and for why ?? Oh yes to fit the breed standard, what a bunch of hippocrates some of these experts are. Sad

I'll agree with all of that Rod.
The rescue place where 'Sprocket,' my German Shepherd came from listed him as a 'cross' because he's got floppy ears and the Kennel club wouldn't accept him as being the real thing.
All his other paperwork has 'German Shepherd' written all over it.

This one's a beaut.

Well said. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel as an example has been bred to the limit that its head is too small for its brain, and more than 75% of them suffer terribly with head pain, seizures and vision problems. And people still buy them.

Greyhounds have looked just like this for hundreds of years.



A lovely shot.

As you know, I would love to adopt one, but HQ says no.

Agree Rod 100% both dogs I've had were cross breeds and the best animals going.

So the consensus about Bren is head, brain, ego and size are related.!
