Retro Pug – The Healthier Version Of A Popular Breed?
The health benefits of a pug are well known among dog lovers. Pugs have been popular since the late 19th century when they were bred from a pit bull terrier. Today, there are many different types of pugs including miniature pugs, big pugs, chihuahua pugs and even miniature chihuahuas. Some pugs are smaller than others. There are some pugs with short fur coats while other pugs have long hair coats. All of them look very cute and adorable. They all come in various colors such as black, brown, chocolate, cinnamon or red.
Pug owners love their pets because they make great companions and loyal friends. However, there are times when a pet may not be able to perform its duties properly due to illness or injury caused by another animal or human. For example, if your cat gets hit by a car, it will probably die.
If your dog gets hit by a car, it might get injured too.
But what happens if both dogs got hurt at the same time? What would happen then? Would one dog survive or the other one?
In this case, which dog survives depends upon how much pain the pet suffers first. The dog who suffers less pain from its injury is the one that will survive.

The Pug Is Not Just a Toy Dog
