Do you know what the genetic defects are in your breed?
Since many of you know what your breed's original job was, do you also know what the genetic defects are? Did you look into this before you got your dog? Do you have your dogs tested for these defects, on the schedule recommended by the vet or national breed club? Did these potential defects affect your getting a certain breed?

No, no, no, no, it would if I knew of them. I think you should go for what breed interests you. If you know that a breed has been irresponsibly bred to the point of defects then you probably shouldn't support that, but otherwise what's the point of letting genetics taint your choice?
