Trade Me will consider banning other dog breeds Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome (BAOS) has been likened to breathing through a pillow. Trade Me would consider banning the sale of other dog breeds on its site if there were "compelling evidence" to support it. The online trader announced yesterday that it would ban Canine's Delight the sale of pugs, French bulldogs and British bulldogs from March 1 because they are prone to Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome (BOAS). "These three breeds have a stubby body and a flat face, and suffer their whole life because they can't breathe properly," Trade Me policy and compliance team leader James Ryan said. Some flat face breeds have been banned, but dog-lovers wonder about others with health issues. Reaction to the ban has been mixed, with many dog-lovers pointing out that other animals with exaggerated features such as long, droopy ears, bulging eyes and short legs also suffer health problems. * Fashionable dogs facing a life time of misery Basset hounds have problems with ear infections, shar-peis get skin infections, shih tzus get weepy eyes, and German shepherds are prone to hip dysplasia. "We agree that other breeds have negative health outcomes, but not to this extent and not something that effects them their entire lives," Ryan said. "However, if we receive compelling evidence that suggests other breeds are suffering like this we will investigate and consider extending our ban if we think that's appropriate." Trade Me said the difference was the extent to which pugs and bulldogs developed complications, with an estimated 90 to 95 per cent having BOAS to some degree.
