The breed was developed as dual-purpose, suitable for both dairy and beef production; however, certain blood lines within the breed always emphasised one quality or the other. Over time, these different lines diverged, and by the second half of the 20th century, two separate breeds had developed – the Beef Shorthorn, and the Milking Shorthorn.

Some of the effects of improper breeding in puppy mills can include epilepsy, heart disease, lung disease, musculoskeletal disorders, endocrine disorders, blood disorders, deafness, eye problems, and respiratory problems later on in life as an adult.

As puppies, they will arrive at pet stores, or in homes, with Giardia (a parasite that causes diarrhea), Parvovirus (A highly contagious viral disease that is life threatening), distemper (A viral disease in dogs that causes a fever and coughing), upper respiratory infections, Pneumonia.

In 1894, the Devon and Somerset Badger Club was founded by Arthur Blake Heinemann who created the first breed standard for this type of terrier.
They were bred to make a very athletic dog that was also very intelligent. Although they do not have the strongest bite force of domesticated dogs, they also do not have the price tag like the german shepherd or rottweiler.

A great alternative to BSL is to make it illegal to breed dogs without proper licensing.
bulls are among the most misunderstood and maligned breeds of dogs in many regions across different continents. Over the years, the media has been portraying them in a negative light. This kind of portrayal has largely been due to the misconceptions and myths associated with pit bulls. Prior to this negative depiction of pit bulls, they were considered, and rightly so, the “perfect nanny dog” by children (Holland).
