10 curiosities you should know if you like Pug dogs
On International Pug Day we share some curiosities of one of the oldest dog breeds in the world …
Pugs are one of the most popular dog breeds in the world because their flat face and cute eyes make them unmistakable.
These little mounds have marked the history of emperors and princes, and they are so loyal that they even have their own International Pug Day, which is celebrated every October 15
Pug dogs are capable of melting anyone with tenderness, however, if you want to have one you must take into account that this breed requires more care and responsibility than any other.
This is one of the breeds called brachycephalic, which means they have a rounded head, with a very short snout and protruding eyes. Because their nose is very short, they often have difficulty breathing.
Being brachycephalic, they cannot bear the heat, and their windpipe is narrower than that of other breeds. Its tail has a very special characteristic, as it has a spiral shape because the vertebrae in this portion of the spine are hemivertebrae (disorder due to failure in vertebral development).

Pugs are prone to colds due to their small noses, so if you plan to have one, keep in mind that it must be indoors.

Because they have short legs, small noses, and trouble breathing, pugs are not good swimmers, so don’t try to get him into a pool, because you will only make him suffer.
Pugs have a short and very smooth coat, so they do not have to bathe very often, just brush them. However, you should clean the wrinkles on your face well to prevent bacteria from forming.
