I have to agree with Jaime on this, since breeds like pugs are essentially a
special form of parasite that we call "pets" (and therefore not symbiotic in
my understanding of the word: the cooperative, mutually-beneficial sense).

Parasitism is a form of symbiosis. See www.cals.ncsu.edu/course/ent591k/symbiosis.html.
