    I am confused. Do you mean they should die out so no pugs will be left suffering?

    Good question Not as such no, if they are going to stay how they are now then i think it would just be kinder to stop breeding them. However all that is really necessary is cross breeding to increase genetic variation (10,000 pugs = genetic diversity of 50 individuals) and make their features less extreme. Pug crosses still look like pugs a bit but are healtier and can actually breathe etc like this one:

    It's not perfect but it has a longer muzzle and less stenotic nostrils. Ofc the KC wont do this tho bc of the 'breeds standard'

    See that's the thing, a lot of people find them cute because they are bracycephalic (short faces and large foreheads) as such human psychology tells us that it is 'cute' and needs protecting because they resemble babies. Tbh i find neither cute but i can see why people do however this is what is causing the problem. Furthermore people anthropomorphisise them (horrendous spelling i apologise ) i.e apply human characteristics to them. For instance 'snoring' isn't snoring at all it is the pugs soft palette getting in the way and them trying to suck in air because their airways are compressed. However people find this 'cute and funny' because it reminds them of people snoring
