We can’t deny how adorable this breed is, it seems that everyone wants a sausage dog. But, unknown to many this breed should come with a warning label and owners should be VERY aware of the pitfalls & risks.

If you are considering ownership (or if you already have) we implore you to do your research, it’s 2021 and there is ample information freely available for owners, there really is no excuse

Forewarned is forearmed.
