Falando de raças e fenótipos, os criadores seleccionam as características que melhor vendem. 
Ambos os cães da fotografia são Bulldogues Franceses, raça pura de dois criadores diferentes.
Estranhamente em Portugal o comum é vermos exemplares iguais aos da esquerda. Tipicamente animais com problemas respiratórios graves (entre outros).
Fica a dúvida: Porquê ?!?

“Two very different French Bulldogs. Yes, the dog on the right *is* purebred, showing what you can do in just a couple of generations if you actively select for a more moderate phenotype..

The dog on the left is Arnie, owned by Heather Hanna. The dog on the right was bred by Chantal van Kruining.

Which one do you find the most appealing?”
