I’ll be talking about PUGS as the breed of the month!
Pugs make great companion animals but there are a couple of things to keep in mind about their health. Excessive breeding for form and appearance over function has left this breed with a range of health problems and complications.
Pugs are short nosed, flat faced (brachycephalic) due to which they experience breathing problems especially in warmer weather. They are also prone to a condition called proctosis in which the eyes pop out of the socket due to forward displacement of the eye.
It is therefore advisable to use a body belt over a collar for this breed of dog.
Avoid taking these guys out when it's hot and keep them cool and hydrated. (For more tips check out my post on how to keep dogs cool during summer-->https://www.instagram.com/p/BfQ7NNjAGsz/)
If you've made due consideration for the above, you're good to go with owning a pug.
