Aww, is that dog ok?  Does it have some genetic issue?

daegog According to her facebook bio, her head tilt and her leaning towards the left is the residual effect of a brief illness she experienced called Vestibular Syndrome.

oobaka Although another poster has pointed out that Vestibular Syndrome seems to be the culprit here, I don't doubt that you're also correct and that inbreeding played a role in that disease occurring in the first place.

The amount of tinkering and twisting of dog genetics that man has done is extreme. Several breeds, if I'm remembering correctly, have been bred to have such small, narrow hips that the females can barely give birth to litters of puppies and often die in the process.

squidbush Or possibly fox. I recently read somewhere that DNA testing has shown that some of the smallest dog breeds were arrived at through domesticating foxes. Or maybe through a blend of fox and wolf genes. I don't know the details.

squrlz4ever That would make more sense. there's some seriously tiny dogs that are really good at (if not BETTER than) cats at hunting mice and rats.
