Aw, what a cutie! I’ve never had one, but I’d assume it was just the breed rather than anything seriously wrong. Hopefully another bee can give you better advice though. She’s seriously adorable.

I’m not 100% sure about dogs, but I know that my cats do occasionally get colds. Just like with a person, the cold needs to run its course. Unless your pooch is very lethargic or her ears are very hot (indicating a fever), you probably don’t need to take her to the vet.

She is SUCH a cutie pie!!!

First, I have to say she is a cutie pie! 

Yes, dogs can get colds and even allergies. My puppy has a runny nose and sneezes a ton in the morning mostly. However I know a lot of bulldogs will have that stuffy nose sound. I would say to maybe have it checked out by the vet if you get too concerned. My labrador got a cough and we found out she caught something from other dogs at the dog park (despite having the bortadella vaccine – which is like the human flu shot – not always effective).

OMG that little frownie face is so cute!  Yes dogs get colds.  My pup had one during the winter. My inlaw’s dog has a runny nose all the freaking time because he has seasonal allergies!  Poor guy.  It will probably just run its course.

@futuremrsk18:  What a cute dog! My BF’s friend has a purebred pit bull whose nickname is Pig because she makes snorting sounds. I’m not sure if dogs can get colds, but I’ve never seen any of my dogs get one.

Our dogs have allergies which makes ones eyes water and the other gets a runny nose. They each get a quarter of a children’s benadryl, per their vet, when the symptoms get bad. Your dog may have allergies, but of course, consult your vet before considering any medication.

I have a pug and a boston terrier (or boston mix, they’re both rescues but we have no back story on the boston). They both have flatter faces, so they make more snorty sounds. They also do this thing that my dog groomer friend calls “backwards sneezes”. I have no clue what they technically are, but I think it sounds more like an asthma attack. My friend told me when they do that, to try to reassure them that they’re okay, and if I want, massage their throat. It seems to work for my boys. I do know taht dogs can get colds. When mine have colds (not often, but it happens), they have more of a runny nose, their nose is sometimes crusty, their eyes sometimes water, and they just seem a little tired.

Also, your girl is so cute

My dog had a really bad “cold” when we first got him, but he picked it up from the shelter. He was super sniffly, but it was really obvious he was very sick. He had a fever, didn’t like walking around much, and was dropping snot EVERYWHERE. He clearly looked miserable.

It sounds to me like for you, it might just be the way your dog’s nose was made. Doesn’t sound like a cold!
