That is not true in the slightest because a St. Bernards heart and lungs are proportionate to its body mass, a Bully whippits, heart and lungs are proportionate to a normal sized whippit, its not hard to understand how this could be a problem, Im not an expert but after reading this its pretty easy to understand.
