I tend to agree with what Nina said in a previous post - that pugs (as with other breeds) to a certain extent become acclimatised to where they live. We just aren’t used to prolonged periods of hot weather that we are currently experiencing in the U.K. To us however, 88F is getting uncomfortably far too hot, dogs with dumb owners are dying from heat exhaustion and I can’t even begin to imagine how you survive in Arizona!
For Darwin even an early morning walk in the park staying in shaded areas with a cool coat on he’s starting to pant at 68F. By the same token he takes no notice and isn’t at all bothered when it’s 20F in winter.

Indy is doing well for this heat. He stays inside, he has his "business offices" to do his business in. I like that better than saying do you have to pee or poop. We play in the house. Twice a month we travel to the White Mountains to work at a car racing track for a friend. Indy has now become the "greeter & mascot" at the race track. He loves riding in the car. He's never gotten car sick but he won't sit anywhere but my arms. I've tried the back seat, the floor but I think I'm going to have to break down and get a car seat for Indy. He's not going to be happy with that but it's got to be done for his safety.
THREE HOURS?? Anyone thought it was ok to leave a pug out three hours????
"Whoever said diamonds are a girl's best friend never owned a pug."
Well we cracked 44c here today (just north of 110f) North of Melbourne, Australia. Both my Pugs are sprawled out like usual on the couch and have an air conditioned house for our Summers. Would be a struggle for any dog outside today, itís like a furnace out there...

Yes, it’s just stay inside on days like those. Thankfully we only get a handful each Summer that extreme so not as bad as places like Dubai, etc but still pretty warm. Up to 38 degrees or so is ok generally to be outside - I get a bit warm above that. Ideal temp is high 20’s to low 30’s IMO. :)
And what about the dog on vacation, if I take it on a yacht in Ispnia, ride for about a week, will it not harm the dog?
This is an old post and there are a lot of comments but I'm worried about my current living arrangement and I'm wondering if I should be.
My husband and I are moving in June but right now we are locked into our contract at our current apartment. It is an older basement apartment and there is no centralized A/C, we have a A/C unit that we stick out of the window but our apartment still gets VERY hot (72-78 degrees, but indoors so its crazy). Will this kind of consistent temperature cause problems? Or will Romeo be okay for a month or two while we're looking for a new place?
