Another "myth" is that somehow they were bred with a monkey, which explains the bowed legs. But that is actually found in a book of myths. The muzzle part, I have seen elsewhere & cannot actually find that in myths.

If you think about it, I suppose actually smacking their muzzle over all those years can indeed change the way they look. I mean, didn't the American Bulldog actually have similar when all the years of docking their tail, many are born without tails now adays?? Kinda the same, but not lol..
Oh lord are you serious?

What, you didn't know that dogs became merle because people used to splash them with bleach until part of their fur washed out? Over time they were just born that way. It's also why double merle is lethal...too much bleach in the dog's DNA and it gets in their eyes and blinds them.

Sorry to break it to you but breeding dogs doesn't work that way. If that were true then Dobermans would be born with cropped ears and short tails because many generations get them cropped and docked.

You can not slap a dog's face to get a shorter muzzle in it's offspring.
