For a lot of dog owners, the most important quality of a dog is its ability to reciprocate its owner’s affection for them. This is why, for those who are wondering, there are dog lovers who prefer to have dogs that the majority would consider unconventional. What other people may consider ugly breeds may actually be the most adorable ones around.
Pugs, in particular, doesn’t look that appealing. Sure, a pug costume can make them a bit cuter, but this breed of dog is usually an acquired taste. Not to mention that they need special care and attention. But it’s all worth it because they are amazingly sweet, even to other people. It makes them a bad guard dog for sure, but a great pet when it comes to relieving stress.
The special care and attention required for pugs aren’t that big of a deal. They’re extremely minor quirks that pug owners have to be aware of before getting themselves a pup. One example of this is that pugs ideally shouldn’t be put on a leash. A slight tug can cause breathing problems due to their unusual neck and skull structure.
Also, as funny as it may seem, their eyes may also pop out of their sockets if their forward momentum is suddenly stopped. The good news is that there really isn’t a need to put them on a leash because they are unsurprisingly docile. They’d sooner befriend another dog they meet than challenge it to a growling match. This quality is one of the reasons why their owners don’t really mind the unusual aesthetics of this particular breed.
There are different communities of pug owners around, most of which can be found on the Internet. It’s definitely a good idea to check them out to get more tips on how to take care of these adorable pups.
