I feel sorry for bracheocephalic breeds and think they should be modified, which I think some breed clubs are starting to do and I just don't find them very attractive. Most of the achondroplastic breeds I wouldn't seek out either. Not all, but most. But like it was said, if one fell in my lap, I certainly wouldn't dismiss him. I do have a "visiting" foster beagle. LOL. He's cute and sweet as can be, but just not my breed of choice because, I guess he can take or leave people.
I looked up what achondroplastic means, but I'm not really picturing any specific breeds...
