I have always heard and also noticed with my great Dane, that there are often differences between American and European dogs of the same breed. mainly , that European dogs tend to, at least in great Danes and possibly in other breeds, more stocky, shorter muzzle, than American versions, which tend to be longer face , more stylized and slimmer. Again, I have no idea if there is actual truth to this or if it is just myth.. It would make sense that dogs are bred according to peoples tastes and needs, and that those tastes and needs may differ from one continent to the next thus creating differences within the breeds.
if this is so.. Is there a difference between european and American basenjis? I haven't gone back to analyze this but I feel like european basenjis are stockier and have shorter muzzles and smaller ears??? Any thoughts ????
