Please keep your pugs cool! They can overheat quickly to a life threatening heat stroke in less than 20 minutes in a warm apartment, home or yard. Even 80 degrees may cause a serious problem. Cool them down quickly if you see they are struggling to breath and having an event. Remember to cool down their paws, under arms and tummies with tepid water.

Please be aware of how warm your home gets during the day, when you are not home. Draw your shades, run fans, and even consider a portable air conditioner, especially if your pug is elderly or ill.

Don't walk your pug in the heat of the day or even early evening. When walking warm temps bring water, have your pug wear a cooling vest or collar, and walk in the shade and on trails (not pavement). Always watch your pug for distress.
