Short-snout dogs die more often on planes

If you own a bulldog or pug, beware that these breeds account for approximately half the purebred dog deaths on airplanes in the past five years.

Overall, at least 122 dog deaths were reported since May 2005, when U. S. airlines were required to start disclosing them says the Transportation Department. The dogs died while being shipped as cargo.
