Unfortunately, breeders deliberately breed these good-natured dogs to be deformed. As such, they suffer more than their fair share of health problems, not only with breathing, but also with eye diseases, joint diseases and a devastating (deadly) neurological disease called pug dog encephalitis. Although pugs are affectionate dogs with great personalities, being a flat-faced breed they can have many health problems. For this reason, if you have a Pug, you will need to keep a close eye on it when you exercise, especially in high temperatures, and be aware of the health problems you need to watch out for.
When thinking about buying a Pug, there are additional things you'll want to keep in mind to make sure your dog is as happy and healthy as possible.

So a mastiff is a flat-faced dog and basically so is a boxer. They don't grow up from anything else. That's right, didn't you read the article and see how painful everyday life is for pugs? I feel the tenderness of pugs more or less like I feel with my feet tied. Something that is not right and should be left in the history books.
And there are still Chinese women alive with their feet tied. I visited the Pearl S house. Buck from the Philadelphia area. There were foot-tie artifacts there.
It was quite disturbing, to say the least. I have seen pictures of tied feet, how the Chinese could see them as desirable is beyond me, they had to break the foot and bend it in half. The thing about the cuteness of pugs is that they can't help the smiley expression when they have their mouths open, even if they are simply struggling to get enough air. Just to add insult to the wound, when the Chinese decided that he was no longer attractive, any woman with her feet tied was rejected from society, came to love the Chinese and their barbaric, cruel and ridiculous ways.
In fairness, this would apply to more dog breeds than you think. Pugs have problems due to malformed skulls, dachshunds have back problems due to the long spine, virtually all large breeds (and the impressive and beloved Great Dane above all, there is a reason their average life generation is only 7 years) suffer from 450749 health problems arising from a body size too large (body too big) for the heart, legs become too fragile under so much pressure, guts are prone to tangling, etc.). if you spend more time thinking about it, it's pretty scary actually% 3DX Yeah, it's not just Pugs. German shepherds have also been completely violated by malicious breeders and pedigree standards over the past century.
And that also applies to many more races. Lassie was the death of a noble race. Before the show, the collies had wide heads and great intelligence. Afterwards, people decided that they looked better with narrow skulls, which squeezed their brains, which resulted in dogs like the one I encountered on my way to school, running to the fence, barking wildly and banging their faces against the fence every day at full speed, over and over again, with every passing person.
Pugs are cute, but this is sad; -; We are also on Instagram and tumblr. On the other hand, you say that intentionally breeding pugs is cruel because of the health risks, when virtually all breeds of dogs (except mongrels) have at least one health problem, such as hip dysplasia in large dog breeds such as the German Shepherd. Not feeding your dog is cruelty to animals, but no one seems to consider that overfeeding your dog is also terrible. .
