00 GMT Last modified on Wed 26 Jan 2022 21.08 GMT A litter of hairless French bulldogs has been branded a worrying example of “extreme breeding” by the British Veterinary Association, which has voiced concerns that some owners are prioritising novelty over the health of their pet.02 GMT For years company bosses have feared “doing a Ratner” when it comes to speaking their minds and have chosen empty platitudes instead. The dogs are believed to have been bred in Scotland and to be the result of crosses between French bulldogs, Pugs and Chinese crested dogs. Now a group of Britain’s biggest business names have come together to urge their boardroom peers to abandon dull corporate-speak in the national interest. They are thought to be the first litter of hairless French bulldogs in the UK. Senior figures including Juergen Maier, the former chief executive of Siemens UK, and Sir Charlie Mayfield, the former chairman of John Lewis, have launched an organisation to encourage business leaders to speak out about the UK’s biggest economic challenges. But the national body for veterinary surgeons in the UK has warned that while the puppies might be healthy, they could end up with myriad problems, including a susceptibility to sunburn and heat stress as well as breathing difficulties. Now he may have another, more dubious honour also held by his predecessor.

“Just because people like things to look a certain way it shouldn’t justify people being able to do things to these dogs that we know is going to cause potential harm and suffering and welfare issues,” said Justine Shotton, president of the British Veterinary Association. Maier, known for outspoken Brexit interventions on the BBC’s Question Time, said business leaders had to stop being scared of speaking in public and recognise that failure to talk openly about politics and economics harms public debate and leaves the field open to their critics.

It is not the first time hairless French bulldogs have been produced – one such dog made headlines when it entered the US after apparently being bought from China. We’ve seen them before: Ratner was probably one of the worst case studies. At the time of the report vets described the animal as a “monster” and raised concerns that it could be at increased risk of painful acne, dermatitis and skin cancer. So you go in with that fear,” he said. Shotton said the latest litter is just one example of extreme breeding, adding the novelty factor, “cuteness”, or chance to notch up likes on social media may be among the motivations for breeding and buying unusual crosses. “But I cannot see a way in which we can solve the challenges we’ve got without a much, much stronger relationship between business and society and public sector.

“We feel like a lot of these types of dogs that are being marketed as very rare or particularly unique, are just being bred as a sort of popularity thing to get people potentially attracted to these dogs, because they’re almost a status symbol, rather than thinking about the welfare of the dogs themselves,” she said. Shotton added that while crossbreeds have sometimes been thought to be healthier than pedigree dogs, that is not necessarily the case, noting that crossing breeds that have particular health issues can mean the offspring get the worst of both worlds.” The jeweller Gerald Ratner has gone down in British business folklore for describing his company’s own products as “crap” in a speech in 1991, turning him into a textbook example of why company chiefs should choose their words carefully.” The jeweller Gerald Ratner has gone down in British business folklore for describing his company’s own products as “crap” in a speech in 1991, turning him into a textbook example of why company chiefs should choose their words carefully. “Unfortunately, in some of the crosses, [vets are] seeing a multiplication of problems,” she said.
