I'd like to chat about this element. Hips, testicles, and ears are all things that owners/breeders can provide human intervention to decrease or eliminate the problem. My question is after this manipulation is done, should we consider these dogs breedworthy. Suppose the intervention wasn't done, (diet and weight with hips, taping the ears, tacking down the testicles), would people breed to these dogs??? What is the difference in what the same dog will produce if the intervention is or is not done?
