How 100 Years Have Changed Your Favorite Dog Breeds

Dogs have been man’s best friend for thousands of years, and it’s been particularly obvious to discern the impact of human intervention in the last 100 years.


Some characteristics of our favorite pets can be amplified when breeders select canines with these desirable characteristics. Many of our favorite dogs’ qualities have altered as a result of selective breeding, and while they are still adorable, the alterations aren’t always for the better. What are you waiting for? Keep on scrolling down below to see these adorable dogs down below.

1. Dachshund

Our favorite sausages dogs have now longer faces and bodies, and due to much shorter legs their tummies have been lower to the ground.

2. Rottweiler


With a shortened snout and dropped shoulders, the red and black colours of these unique guard canines have changed considerably. Docking is no longer regarded a breed standard, so you might see them with more than just a wiggling bean on the end of their tails!

3. German Shepherd


Because many German Shepherds have a slanted back, they have lost some of their menacing appearance. Their fur is thicker and the colour is more apparent, and they have a larger chest, making them more intimidating.

4. Bull Terrier


These dogs have become a lot more stocky, with flat faces and very wide shoulders. Their back ends have dropped down as well, losing their square looking gait. Sometimes they have their ears clipped to be triangular, to give them a menacing look.

5. Boxer


The boxer’s face has shrunk significantly in recent years, and it is now acceptable under the breed standard to have unclipped ears. They are usually chocolate in colour with a dark face, and tail docking is still the ‘in’ trend.

6. English Bulldog, they have changed a lot


Over time, the English bulldog has grown shorter and stockier. Their faces are still short, but their skin is looser, primarily for the sake of cuteness. No bulldog can give birth spontaneously due to the way their hips are positioned, so every litter requires veterinary help.

7. Doberman Pinscher


With a sloped back and a pointed snout, these small canines have gotten even smaller through the years. Because they aren’t the same as enormous Dobermans, they haven’t shrunk nearly as much!

8. Basset Hound


This breed’s skin is much more sagging than it was 100 years ago, and its ears are also longer. Their legs are much shorter than a dachshund’s

9. Irish Setter


The devoted breed hasn’t changed much in the last 100 years, with their hair merely getting a little longer and thicker than before.

10. Saluki (Persian Greyhound)


The colour shift, as well as a light bone structure, are the most prominent features of this breed. There’s also a more feathery coat, but not much more.

11. Airedale Terrier

Not much has changed for the Airedale terrier, except the fluffier and longer face. You can also see that their stance is more upright near the back end, making them seem more proud.

12. West Highland White Terrier


This breed has no such difference 100 years ago untill now. But can you see the difference of the nose? It’s a bit bigger than before.
