This Tumblr Thread Will Change The Way You Look At Pugs And Why You Shouldn’t Buy One

Pugs are one of the most beloved dog breeds of all time!

And it’s all too understandable. I mean, who wouldn’t fall in love with pug’s small size, delicate features and overall cute appearance?! But, it appears we all have been appreciating something which is, in reality, nothing but the result of pure negligence.


A Tumblr user has shared some important findings of pugs. As it turns out, the shape of their skull, their wrinkled skin, and a lot more about them that we adore are deformities and health problems. The information provided below doesn’t only describe the underlying issues but also explains why are pugs so vulnerable.

Scroll on below and take a look.


This might sound harsh to you right now, but you will understand why “Pugs are not cute” soon enough.

What we love about them the most is actually a health concern.

That explains why we frequently get to hear about such health problems associated with pugs.

It’s indeed terrifying but true.

But, don’t worry. All of this doesn’t mean we can’t have pugs anymore. We most certainly can, just the right ones! Retro Pugs.

Inbreeding was the problem. By taking that out of the picture, Retro Pugs are not as susceptible to all the health issues as inbred pugs were.

Think of them as an “Alloy.” A material made out of two metallic elements but with properties stronger than both its parent-components.

What do you think about all this? Would you choose retro pug instead of the regular pug? Let us know in the comments below.
