Pug Nosed Dogs Banned on Airlines

Aww poor guys! Pugs always have issues because of their smashed little noses, they have breathing problems. Cute little pups.

Pug-Nosed Dogs

Flat-faced canines can no longer fly Cathay Pacific. And their feline friends need to make other travel plans, too.

As of Monday, the airline has banned the so-called brachycephalic breeds due to concerns that certain types of short-nosed animals have an increased risk of breathing problems and overheating due to the stress of flying.

According to the airline’s travel advisory, the ban comes out of concern for the “negative health impact to the animal” caused by air transportation.

Banned are popular breeds such as pugs, bulldogs, and boxers, as well Himalayan, Persian and exotic short-hair cats.

Miniature Pinscher King of Toy Breeds

The miniature pinscher is described as a big dog in a small dog’s body. They are a very old breed, and an extremely energetic breed as well. Miniature Pinschers come in red, black, and chocolate. This breed requires a lot of attention to run out all of their energy, or they turn into little monsters! I have had three miniature pinschers, they are wonderful dogs.
