I think you're right, @BowheadWhale. Same for the English Bulldog, this one isn't as low and wide as the modern iteration. All of them seem a little more "moderate" than many examples these days, at least, which is an interesting observation.

I think the Funrise Bull Terrier looks a lot like what the breed looked a hundred years ago. At that time, Bull Terriers were used to work (like pulling weights) and their shape was very different. Their bridge (scission between the forhead and the nose) was very pronounced at that time, while it is almost unexistant today. Plus, the legs of the figure show very visible articulations, while the modern Bull Terrier has legs so straight they almost seem articulation-free. So, to me, the figure shows the former shape of the breed. No?

Yes, this is very true!! I have some books about this breeds and the earlier specimen of this breed look a lot like this Funrise dog! Much more like a dog should look like, very sound!

I restrained myself from saying it, but that is exactly what I also think deep inside: many dog breeds looked a lot healthier and better built than what they look today, poor creatures... Sad

I will join the bandwagon here. I much prefer the look of many breeds from 100 years ago, simply from a health and soundness perspective. I think it is amazing that we can manipulate the genetics of this animal so easily (research has shown wolves and the resulting domestic dog have unique markers for this amongst other animals) but we have taken this power and abused it in too many cases. Health and soundness is the biggest reason why when I decided to buy a dog I chose the Decker Rat Terrier as it hasn't been AKC accepted yet and still has many of its original traits and suffers very little from breed inherited health conditions. Here is an interesting comparative article of several breeds today and their century old counterparts:

That is such an interesting article and also a sad one too just showing what we have done to dogs Crying or Very sad . Luckily I think some people in the dog world are beginning to see the damage done and make more of an effort, I know that the Kennel Club here now disqualifies dogs that show features that are too exaggerated ( Like overly small eyes/ weak hind legs in the Rough Collie) but there is still so much to be done for our dogs and I really hope that their future will be a positive one. I love you
