The originators in Australia have abandoned the project cause of inconsistences. Can you show me some articles/breeders who are getting type/standard in breeding 2 labradoodles together - something very consistent?
WELL though that is true - NONE of todays dogs look like they were originally bred to look.
The Standard Poodle of today is much too small and it has a muzzle like an Afgan hound. The original bulldog did not used to have such a big head with a squished in muzzle AND look what they have done to the Border Collies! THEY no longer (in a show) have the beautiful pricked or tulip ears but low hanging ears like the Aussie's used to have and the Aussie's ears look like they have been flattened to their head.
This is all done by most rich bored people who "need" to change what 'ain't broke'!
