    Upon coming to America, which breeds changed quite dramatically from their appearance in their homeland?

    Akitas, as an example. The heavy, large-boned American Akitas are much different than the slightly less imposing, smaller Japanese Akita Inu.


    Any other good examples here?

    Collies got a little bigger, but it was very gradual. The early Collies (1800s, early 1900s) looked the same here and there.
