Ugly Fellow





Now here is an ugly fellow with 1,612 babies on the ground. Its sad to say, but hopefully he was dropped on his head as a baby and his facial issues weren't genetic. If it was genetic, shame on all the breeders who used him as a stud dog. Racing greyhounds should at least have normal heads to pass food and air through. It doesn't matter how fast the dog is if he or she can't eat or breath. Heck, I even think they should be attractive.

What a mug this guy has! His sinuses must be a nightmare, and it's a wonder he could ever run. Apparently his looks never undermined his success with the lady hounds since he sired so many babies!

Maybe he's just not photogenic..;)! His head looks like a sculpture created by someone with an extreme talent deficit. Poor guy!!

It's sad that just anyone can call themselves a "breeder". I think you should have to work to get a license and proof of common sense. But, then again they let the dumbest of people have human babies. So sad.

It's genetic... seems to come from K's Flak (though he didn't exhibit the problem)...

See this one:

Yikes, Pam, he's ugly too! Glad the fella was loved though... roman nose and all. Thanks for the tidbit on K's Flak.

Pam, I just looked at the 2nd one you posted... "Won By A Nose" (how fitting!). I wonder what the insides of their mouths look like.

The ones I've seen were relatively normal with full dentition, etc.

Then there was Tom's Stepinhi:

She is missing the lips on one side of her face, missing teeth and is just sort of a mess. But, her adopter adores her!

Steve Buscemi Wants Me said...

probably a recessive gene. i have a friend who has two deaf sons. both she and her husband (born and raised in different states) have that recessive gene.

until i saw otis, i'had never seen these live. but clearly they're out. i bet it's just one of those things that pops out in births or maybe develops as they grow. some long faces o kids dev because they have adnoids. they never have their mouths shut and their facial bone btwn nose and top teeth grow more than on others.

i think he's handsome. but i want to have badasingood luvin with steve buscemi. i am not one to judge good looks.
