The Pug catches cold easily and is stressed by hot and cold weather and can suffer chronic breathing problems. Be careful not to over exert and expose a Pug to weather extremes. This breed is prone to allergies and skin problems. The Pug is not the easiest whelper; expect Cesarean Section if breeding.
There is a chance of keratites (inflammation of the cornea) and ulcers on the cornea. The delicate eyes are prone to weeping. This dog tends to wheeze and snore, but on the whole is a very easy-care dog. It is important not to overfeed the Pug, as it eats more than is good for it, quickly becoming obese and living much shorter lives. To minimize the risk of your Pug developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a puppy from a reputable breeder.Read more about breed
