My boston had pinched nares that had to be surgically fixed while he was neutered. His breathing is still noisy and he snores but he can breath a lot easier. Some dogs have an elongated soft palate that has to be surgically fixed as well. Sometimes though these conditions are normal for the breed and there is nothing to be done but keep them out of extreme weather conditions, don’t let them get overweight and avoid too much activity.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  

The recovery wasn’t too long. A couple weeks I think. I take him on walks all the time, just not when its hot and I will take a break every now and then along the way.

There are different aspect to bracycephalic airway syndrome, some of which can be fixed and others that cannot.  I wouldn’t really expect it to be a problem in your pup based on pictures.

The nostril is one part that they can determine from looking at her if they are a problem, but to know if the palate is an issue they need to look under heavy sedation/anesthesia.

Have your vet look at her before you start getting too worried.  In dogs where this is a big problem they are almost gasping for breath, which it doesn’t sound like your dog is doing.
