    XGirugamesh: Yikes, that is weird. So the brain doesn't have enough room or it gets pressed against the skull? Do you have a photo example of what the head bump looks like? I haven't met enough dobies or ridgebacks to know what you mean...

    "intelligence" bumps are an old tale and are not true. If your dog has a knot on it's head, get that checked out. Lol

    When you go to look for a breeder, look for one who shows their dogs and health tests (hips and eyes and elbows, hearts, patellas etc. as for OFA certs on the parents. If the breeder is unwilling to show you health test results, walk off. This breed is prone to spinal issues, since the ridge on their back is a deformity, and a breeder should breed for soundness.
    Or go through a rescue. A lot of these dogs end up dumped because people get them then aren't equipped to handle them.

    Thank you!

    ETA: I just saw the cat question. If it makes a difference, we have four cats, one of which thinks that my dog is his mother... the worst he would do to one of the cats is run away, LOL.

    I believe KigerQueen was referring to dogs with "eggheads". My neighbor's boxer had one and it never went away because it was the skull.
