However, behind their ugliness, there seems to be a series of painful costs. According to a recent British study, modern red pugs may not be recognized as a breed due to their short lifespan and susceptibility to disease.

Red Pug Health

A study from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons reported that red pugs are more prone to respiratory, eye, and skin diseases than other breeds, and that this serious health condition could potentially lead to them no longer being considered a normal breed.

Here’s how the researchers explain it in their study, “The wide variation in health between red pugs and other dogs in the UK suggests that the differences between red pugs and mainstream breeds have become so great that the red pug breed is no longer regarded as a typical breed.”

Not only do red pugs have more susceptible diseases than other breeds, they also have a relatively short lifespan, and it was their unusually short lifespans that initially drew the attention of researchers to study them in more depth.

Veterinarians from the Royal Veterinary College assessed 30,563 dogs from 18 breeds to see how the dogs’ life expectancy varied. It was found that while the average life expectancy of dogs was 11.2 years, it varied greatly between different breeds.

The culprit for this short life expectancy and high number of diseases is none other than their ugly features, their flat heads and flat faces. This facial structure exposes them to a range of health risks. Experts point out that this feature did not evolve naturally, but is the result of selective artificial breeding by humans.

Artificially bred red pugs

Red pugs first originated in Tibet, China, also known as red pugs, and were introduced to Europe from the Netherlands in the 17th century. The English called them “Dutch dogs”. Red pugs didn’t look like this. They had longer limbs, were more like today’s medium-sized dogs, and had prominent noses and mouths.

However, the breeds we currently see were later artificially bred in England, and it could be argued that people deliberately bred red pugs with flat heads and flat mouths. Dr. Dan O’Neill, who was involved in the study, said, “Red pugs have become very popular in the UK in recent decades, and the breed’s flat face, which is considered by many to be very “cute,” makes it more susceptible to serious health problems. ”

Genetic defects in other dogs

In fact, in addition to red pugs, there are many other genetically defective animals forced into the world, such as the teacup dog, which we previously reported on. Teacup dogs are known as “teacup dogs” because of their small and cute appearance, just the size of a cup.

When held in people’s hands, they are as cute and cuddly as a simulated doll. But in fact, their birth is a mistake, because they are a kind of deformed dog, their super miniature size is caused by genetic mutation. And such teacup dogs have all sorts of health risks from birth, and this will remain with them for the rest of their lives.

In fact, this has very serious consequences for their health, as they often suffer from epilepsy, neurological disorders, and premature deaths related to the genetic defect. But these poor animals, which are bred in large numbers because they are loved and sought after by people who know that their fate is a disaster from birth, are only interested in making a profit and not in whether they live or die.
