I have a lovely neighbour of kids gallore and a pug. Now this pug, plus 2 others i know are rather football shaped. Is this the norm for adult pugs? are they incredibly prone to obesity or something? Like labs for instance. You see a lot of dogs that once used to be a labrador and have morphed into square barrels.
My daughter wants to purchase a pug. she'd walk my dogs twice a year, whether they needed it or not touch, so wondering, if her's too will end up a football? How much exercise can you give a pug? what are they for? as in, what drives do they have. Clearly from my neighbours dogs, she loves the children, and company of my dogs, and pops over early evening to join in the dog play fights. But generally whilst excited to visit for 10 seconds, then sits in a safe place to watch them. Happy with the old dame position of wall flower.
Ive heard that black ones have the devil in them compared to fawn, is this rumour or real?
What health issues do pugs have, besides breathing difficulties. Can they deliver pups without C section, as the heads seem as big or bigger than the torso?
I know nowt about small breeds, but each pug ive met seems larger than healthy, and asthmatic sounding. Ive not seen a slim one yet.
would a pug be able to join us on a 2k walk for instance?
Homer, my friend's pug, was walked daily, but my friend would have to take a golf club, and drive him along with it, or he'd just sit down. So plently of sedate exercise, but fat as a wombat looks.
I said id ask folks on here, for info pug related for her. I would appreaciate any info, and any suggested breeders in melbourne. Also what would be a reasonable price for a pet pug. She'll not be showing. She'll rarely walk her dog if how she behaves here is anything to go by.
