My dog isn’t the best at going for walks.(r/aww)
My dog of 12 recently passed away from heart and respiratory issues.
Your pups harness is too tight, and especially for pugs who have difficulty breathing due to their snouts, this could compound breathing issues.
Pay attention if your dog literally flops down and refuses to move; this could be a sign of a heart attack or lack of oxygen.
My dog had several incidents, even after simply trying to get to his food and water. He was old and there was nothing I could do for his bad heart but give its owner a lot of love. It is still difficult for me, however he is buried with love in the Rose Garden now.
Look into possibly some supportive vitamins for small breeds, it could help your pups ‘get up and go’. Seriously. Normal dog food is lacking unless you splurge for the expensive stuff.
