Dogs really are “Man’s BFFs”. Let’s see how these wonderful and lovable creatures have changed for the last 100 years.
We, at MeowGag, have compiled “before and after” pictures of various dog breeds:
English Bulldog Now: The body has become more massive and stockier, and has more skin hanging on its body. The chest has become wider, the legs have become shorter, and the face is more flattened now.
Basset Hound Now: The body has become lower, the hind legs are shorter, and the ears are a lot longer now. The face, as the legs, has become shorter, and the skin has more folds now.
Boxers Now: Their faces are shorter and upturned. The proportions of the body have slightly changed too.
