A pug can’t be a ballet dancer. It’s not that they don’t have the heart for it (although a veterinarian would probably tell me that the DON’T have the heart for it), I’m sure there is a little pug brain somewhere just imagining themselves twirling in a tutu and finding peace. (Do pugs daydream in color?)
Pugs are notorious for having health problems. Mostly related to breathing. A pug wheezes nonstop. In order to be a ballerina, you have to have a good lung capacity and the ability to maintain a surface of calm. I’m guessing. I don’t know. I haven’t been in ballet for over fifteen years now and it was never professional nor did I have any false impressions that I was ever a ballet dancer.
Anyways, why did the ballet dancer thing pop into my head? Well, the pug is “standing” and using a fence as a rest. He looks taller and even a little graceful, but I’m not sure that is good for its hind legs. Dogs are built to be quadrupeds.
