Spotted today... a pug puppy with a totally flat face - in fact (if you take away that nose roll) a concave face. Also note the discharge and tearing from the pup's eye, probably due to medial entropion - a common-enough pug problem.
I have no idea of the provenance of this pup. Could be show-bred; could be pet-bred; could have come from a puppy farm. But it takes pretty determined selection to achieve something so unnatural; so terribly dysfunctional.
No one, anywhere, should be breeding dogs to look like this. The person buying it should be ashamed of themselves, too.
And if you're struggling to find it as horrific as me, just think back to where it all started; of where a wolf's nose is in relation to its eyes.
Then look again at this Pug.
We did this.
And here's what it looks like from the inside - Pug on the left; a typical normal dog on the right.
