If yes, they are more likely to suffer from certain conditions. Brachycephalic breeds are dogs with short noses such as Bulldogs, Boston Terriers, Boxers, French Bulldogs, Shih Tzus, Pugs, and Pekingese. These types of dogs have a higher risk of corneal ulcers, skin disease, allergies, ear infections, heat stroke and pneumonia.
