Please don’t promote pugs or shih tzus. They have a cursed life. They cannot breathe through their noses because of being brachycephalic, My patronus is a pug they have rheumatism as they get older, they are artificially bred for the amusement of humans while they suffer for life and also have a short lifespan. It’s not worth it.
New My patronus is a pug collection!
Where did you get the facts from? The internet? Sure. I have volunteered for an NGO for dogs. Unless you have published facts from reliable sources such as a paper or a competent provenance such as studying them yourself over decades, I’d think twice from making claims. we gonna say we shouldn’t adopt literally every other flat faced dog and cat breed too? In which case, what do you want us to do with the pups and cats that have no homes? My patronus is a pug Send them off to the pound to be killed or send them to a shelter to wait to be adopted and pray someone does after seeing your comment and thinking just because this one pug had this certain list of issues means my pug will get them too since not all pugs have major health concerns.
Loca here, had a condition called Cerebellar Ataxia and passed peacefully with her owners last year. Her YouTube channel is still up where you can find her little voice singing, ironically the last video was debunking rumors of her death posted in 2016. Here’s a disclaimer: just because this pug had this issue does not mean all pugs have this issue. You can have a pretty healthy pug that lives long and happy or you can have an unhealthy dog that needs to be put down, make the choice that makes the dog suffer the least, if it doesn’t need to be put down don’t put it down. You don’t get to decide what lives and what dies.
Have a good time and enjoy it!
I’m a pug owner and you have no idea what you are talking about. Mine are healthy not over weight and they can live to be ten years old just like other breeds. They are the most loving and loyal dog breed I have ever owned How ignorant people can be. Breeds like pugs and bulldogs are born with a plethora of health issues. Yes. They live a long life, but it’s not a pleasant one. The cuteness factor does not override the morally correct one. I’m pretty sure people can be aware of this if they want to u don’t have to point out the worst of things that are put in the positive way and ruin someone’s day like mine
