The breed standard for each breed of dog is distinct, giving a detailed "word picture" of the appearance and behavior of an idealized dog of that breed. Included in the breed standard description are externally observable aspects of appearance and behavior that are considered by the breed club to be the most important for the breed, and externally observable details of appearance or temperament that are considered by the breed club to be unacceptable (called faults). In addition most breed standards include an historical section, describing the place of origin and the original work done by the breed or its ancestor types.

However, breed standards DO NOT include testing requirements for health, requirements for genetic testing as required by ResearchBreeder.com, or requirements for specific types of training or work; breed standards are only intended to describe the breed's externally observable qualities. Breed clubs often make other requirements for health testing or work testing, but these are not covered in the breed standard itself.

Bullous Pemphigoid: This rare condition is an autoimmune disorder, meaning an abnormal immune response to a normal component of the body - in this case a protein in the skin. This results in blisters and ulcers in the skin and/or mouth. The disease is often severe, depending on how widespread are the affected areas.
This condition is very similar to bullous pemphigoid in people.
