Thread: I Think He's Too Skinny

    My vet loves skinny dogs

    I can't split his meal because it's already so small, but I have decided to give sardines in spring water for breaky in the mornings to make me feel better

    They won't eat vegies anymore, the buggers.

    He couldn't walk for more than 10 minutes without wheezing and needing to be carried home. His breathing has improved but he still snores like a bear

    I love skinny dogs as well
    This is my type of Pug.


    Ideal weight for a Pug is about 5-9 kilos (correct me if im wrong).

    Pugger, I think Ollie looks fantastic! Don't worry about the loose skin, Matrix has the same thing from his weight loss (he MUST have some pug in him somewhere the way he inhales his food!).

    Ollie is just adorable!

    I like skinny dogs too

    But I really admire how you've got his weight down. The neck wrinkles are very typical in some lines, I see them on some of the big winning pugs down our way.

    I was trying to find a picture to show you what I meant, this is the best one I found. See how he has a slight tuck-up and noticeable waist, yet he still looks cobby, chunky and has the heavy skin around the neck?

    But importantly, you can see clearly how he doesn't have any excess weight around his shoulder and back which would prevent him from moving so freely:

    If you can get weight off a Pug you've done a brilliant job, he looks fabulous.

    I think your dog looks great! I thought the neck wrinkles were normal.
