Because what the world needs right now is a brachycephalic Rottweiler. :-(
These Rottweilers are from a top Serbian Kennel owned by Darko Veselic. This picture on his Facebook page has prompted a torrent of comments from all over the world - with much of the criticism raising concern about introducing breathing problems into the breed.
And, of course, these dogs' heads are asking for trouble - domed, with an exaggerated stop, and a crania-facial ratio (CFR) of under 0.5 (i.e. the muzzle is less than half the length of the cranium). It is below 0.5 that we start to see respiratory issues. They do, at least, have good open nostrils.
Their breeder Darko Veselic is a charming chap. After one female commenter on his Facebook page criticised his dogs, he came back with this - which was then endorsed by several women. They should be ashamed of themselves.
But I want to leave you with this thought.
There are dozens of breeds with far shorter muzzles than these Rottweilers and it causes little or no outrage. I'm sure that many of the critics on Darko Vesilsc's page will pass a Pug or a Frenchie with a smile and may even have short-faced dogs in their own homes.
It's a shock when you see a dog that normally has a decent muzzle suddenly robbed of it, isn't it? But sadly, most of us do not have the same visceral response when we see this.
But we should. It makes absolutely no difference to the dog if it was acquired over 100s of years or just a few.
It is an aberration and a burden.
