It may be more pronounced, but they look pretty blocky to me.

I do agree that the extreme look is ever popular, with anything

Americans just seem obsessed with oversized things, including heads, paws, height, etc... Pretty much any extreme lol. Imho, extremes are rarely a good thing.
I agree, and many SL breeders are breeding for a big blocky head. Like the dog will be more masculine because of the size of the head. ha
