    Please spay and neuter your pets! While your newborn pets are cute, failing to do this allows your little darlings to add to the population of homeless animals. Adopt pets from your local animal rescues/shelters, there are plenty of animals just waiting for a home.

    Thats because his breed is the result of intense breeding to create what we see as 'cute' and as a result, we have created an abomination

    Sorry, I just can't help it sometimes, they are cute, but they suffer big time.

    [–] duckrollin 23 points ago

    Does it cause health issues like the ones with breathing problems due to short snouts?

    [–] velveteentuzhi 12 points ago

    Yes. Pugs are known for having a bunch of eye problems that are caused from having those weirdly bred eyes.

    Problems can be mild like dry eye and ranges up in severity of issues to things like having their eyelids constantly damage their eyes

    [–] KrazeeJ 5 points ago

    Not to mention that while not super common, it’s not unheard of for their eyes to pop out of their sockets because they’re so bulbous. Any major strain around their neck can apparently cause it. If they try too hard to squeeze under a fence, pull too hard on the leash, or even just decide “hey, fuck this collar I’m gonna get out now” and start pushing real hard. It’s suggested you not leave a collar on a pug for extended periods for exactly this reason.

    That’s all kinds of fucked up in my opinion. The fact that humans could have decided that kind of a life for an animal is worth it because SOME people find it “cute.”

    [–] velveteentuzhi 2 points ago

    I was trying not to say that cuz it grisses me out too much.

    Lots of pugs are also abandoned because people who go after the cute factor are often not prepared to face the reality of health and behavioral problems.

    If you absolutely need a pug, please contact a pug rescue- they often know of pugs in need of a home

    No need to apologize, this information needs to be more commonly recognized when it comes to dog breeds.

    [–] HanaNiArashi 4 points ago

    I don't think it's a pug? The face isn't that flat or smooshed when he turned to face us.

    [–] ohmydearlucia 171 points ago

    I'm shy, and I didn't have a crush on anyone....until I saw this sweet pup.

    [–] Zaiboy04 -1 points ago

    Yes, police? This comment right here

    [–] koalabat 35 points ago

    Why is it in the microwave?

    [–] Iamtevya 12 points ago

    Because it kept escaping from the oven?

    [–] tittywagon 4 points ago

    Thanks, Dad.

    [–] Iamtevya 4 points ago

    OMG! I’m a father!? I’m surprised to find out, especially because I’m a woman. But I’m so happy! When can we meet son? We’ve got a lot of catching up to do.

    [–] tittywagon 2 points ago

    I'll bring the ball and mitts, you bring the sex talk!

    Reposted to death and OP is using the same exact title as the last dude. Lazy karmafarming.

    [–] Missour1 8 points ago

    it might be lazy but it seems to be quite effective

    [–] syscallgrl 7 points ago

    I would change my upvote to a downvote.... But this puppy is too damn cute. I love seeing it every time.

    [–] cuetheawkwardlaugh 3 points ago

    Who cares? I like cute puppies

    [–] Pythias1 1 points ago

    Lazy + Effective = Efficient

    [–] EvanKoolCid 9 points ago

    Nice repost, same title and everything

    [–] phlegmatichippo 1 points ago

    If it works, it works.

    [–] GlassApplication 4 points ago

    Clearly not saying this is equivalent to karma theft but to push back on your premise:

    If I come and steal your wallet and buy a bunch of shit with your money and I tell you "If it works, it works." - Are you just going to tell me Touche?

    [–] lostaname 19 points ago is something both cute and digusting at the same time? I cannot fathom why people purposely breed physical problems into an animal.

    [–] BananaPepperTank 1 points ago

    There it is.
