Breeding flat-faced dogs is damaging their health

Pugs, French bulldogs... Their short noses and protuding eyes might be cute. Their health problems not so much.

    I used to work at a daycare and we would often have to walk our short nosed breeds inside or they weren’t allowed out in temperatures over 70 degrees and if they did go outside they weren’t allowed to overly exert themselves playing. They cute “snorting” sound they make is from not having a clear airway, they also deal with dry cracked noses from not being able to lick far enough to reach the top of their noses. This was an extremely common occurrence unfortunately.

    Breeding these dogs is not fair to the poor little dogs..

    Retro pugs I hear are bred to be healthy

    Dogs are not and should never be used as tailor made fashion accessories. Dogs are meant to have a muzzle and not look like thier eyes are gonna pop out of thier heads or look like they ran head long into a wall.

    Good grief! The breeders need to stop it and be held at fault. But of course, there are no laws on the books for this kind of crime. Can you imagine your branial cavity being to small for your brain? That infuriates me.

    I am likely going for a golden retriever or Australian shepherd for my next working dog

    The less you buy these breeds, the less breeding will happen. Stop. Buying. From. Backyard. Breeders. Buy from people who genuinely care about the health and homes of the dogs they produce. Who guarantee health, and will be with you every step of the way.

    I have a Chihuahua and he looks a bit different from my other two he is three but he has always had breathing problems. I had to take him to a specialist it turns out he is part pug. I’ve just had to let him have a operation to shorten his soft palate and open up his nose it’s cost me three thousand pounds to get it sorted but well worth it . All of my three dogs are rescue dogs.

    My neighbors had Pugs. They started falling apart once they reached middle-age. One went blind (possibly due to the eye injuries that Pugs are prone to) and developed diabetes. She had to be euthanized due to her poor health. The other one wheezed constantly. I believe she passed recently. My neighbors are currently on their third dog...which is a Labrador mix.

    I had a pug and felt bad for her. She was clearly uncomfortable. She died young. My mix is so much more resilient.
