chondrodystrophoid(redirected from chondrodystrophoid breeds)
having chondrodystrophy as a characteristic.
in dogs, e.g. Dachshund, Bulldog, Bassett hound, the features of chondrodystrophy are established as the breed type. Angular deformities of the limbs and degeneration of the mucinous nucleus pulposus of the intervertebral disk at an early age are unfortunate accompaniments of this trait.
