When a friend stops you from doing something, it’s probably for the best if you hear them out and pay heed to what they say.
While most people listen to their friends’ advice, one fella decided not to do so, even after their friend came up with solid arguments backed by some photos.
Imgur user NoNienNietNon shared the story on the social platform, writing how one of their friends wanted to get a purebred pug as a pet.
The user said they tried to convince their buddy to go for some other breed, arguing that pugs are prone to a number of health problems.
To back up their argument, the concerned user sent them the images of the skull of a terrier.
The user then sent their friend some images of the skulls of a pug, explaining how breeding pugs and taking them as a pet is nothing short of animal cruelty.
“Friend of mine really loves dogs with squashed faces, and he was talking about getting a purebred from a breeder,” the Imgur user wrote.
“I told him he should consider alternatives – even sent him some stuff for getting a french bull dog that has been bred to have a longer nose so they can breathe properly.
“He said he didn’t like it because the dog wasn’t as cute, and he still wants a purebred.”
Pugs’ history stretches thousands of years back to the Han dynasty in China (206 BC to 200 AD). The Han emperors valued this dog breed, and provided them with all the luxury they can.
According to some sources, the Chinese monarchs would even make soldiers guard them.
