Health! Juno is pushing 5 years and I feel like she's entering her geriatric years. It's as if I'm just waiting for her to get cancer or for her heart to explode.

Popularity, the appeal to street thugs, and the huge variance in size and structure that has NOTHING to do with functionality (originally there was a variance because form followed function, but now big heads, big chests, floppy fleas, and rare diluted tricolor dogs reign supreme).

Longevity for Boxers. One of the only reasons we are even considering adding another ACD is that realistically Boxers don't live that long. They wouldn't all be seniors at the same time.

ACD's would definitely be structure. A little leaner for a lot of them and definitely a lot more rear angulation. Temperament needs a lot of help too.. too many byb ranchers breeding dogs who aren't the greatest with people.

Dog aggression, reactivity, and same-sex aggression, hands down.

Size. I wish Yorkies would come in a 10-20lb package from good breeders instead of the standard 7lbs and under.

oh and no docked tails.

BCs: The BARKING. And the reactivity.

Pit bulls: the extremely high number of very shy and very handling-intolerant dogs that I've been seeing lately. So many dogs screaming "bite risk" to me

As much as I love Merlin's bunny butt, I would like to see the breed go without docking.

Oh and Merlin is a very quiet dog but the aussie bark thing would probably make me hesitate on getting another. I was shocked when I went to an aussie meetup how many dogs were just barking non-stop and people were joking on how it was pretty normal.

Less shedding would be nice. Love the wash and wear dirt-resistant coat but don't love how it sticks to my leggings lol

Health/lifespan. I don't mind the drooling, I frequently use my sleeve to wipe his mouth if I don't have a drool rag handy. Buuut other people commenting about the drooling gets annoying. Especially when they see he's got a slinger and try to dance away from him to avoid being rubbed against. He wouldn't slime you if you didn't make yourself such an appealing target.
