They have started doing research and try to make the genepole of pedigree dogs (not only dachsies, there are some breeds that are near extinction in UK, because of such narrow genepole) wider in the UK. I don't know the situation ie. in Finland, but there has been discussions about Cavalier king charles spaniels that have been breeded so far that their heads are so small that their brain don't fit there. They have constant headache. Of course, the dog-ppl want to do something about that. :) These dachsie websites are results of this make the breeds healthier -campaign and I think they're very good. There's good information and I like it when ppl take responsability. :)
