    I got pretty lucky with mine, no noticeable health issues, she breathes well, her wrinkles are minimal. I’d never buy another that wasn’t a rescue, but she’s an absolute doll

    The health issues are the big thing - they breed them for cosmetic features that actually put their health at a greater risk - great documentary on CBC right now that touches on that.

    It’s the personalities I love; they’re incredibly sweet - they also have a much longer average lifespan than similar breeds, a Boston Terrier is a 9-11 year average life, as opposed to pugs in the 14-17 year range. Can’t believe mine is 7 already, if she was a Boston I’d be making end of life plans already :(
