The Pug and Boston Terrier Mix Guide: Bugg
What Is A Pug-Boston Terrier Mix?
The Bugg is a crossbreed of the Boston Terrier and Pug breeds. The mix comes from crossing two different purebreds to create a new breed. The Boston Terrier and Pug are both popular dog types, so this mix has become increasingly common in recent years. Buggs are usually small, weighing between 13 and 18 pounds. They have a short yet muscular body with long legs that end in large paws. The head is longer than it is wide, giving the Bugg an adorable appearance with its round face and floppy ears.
- The Boston Terrier has been bred for centuries by crossing European breeds to produce a dog similar in size but different in temperament from the Pug dogs of China and Japan. The goal was uniformity while preserving traits such as intelligence, gentleness, loyalty, courage and ease of training
- Pugs were originally brought to Europe during the nineteenth century where they became popular among wealthy people because they could be kept indoors all day without too much exercise - their flat faces made them prone to breathing difficulties
- The Bugg is an example of a designer dog breed, which are often created by crossing two purebreds together. As with any mixed dog there can be some undesirable traits passed on from both parents

Now that we know what makes these dogs so adorable and endearing, let's explore the physical attributes associated with each parent breed in turn. Let's start off by looking at one of their most distinctive features - the long legs they have inherited from their Pugs side. These make them natural runners just like their father who was originally bred for endurance racing events! This means that these energetic and athletic dogs can keep up with you on long walks or even more strenuous activities like hiking.
Pug-Boston Terrier Mix Body Type
The Pug's short but stocky build gives the Bugg a compact body, while their flat faces make them all the cuter for those who are looking for something low-maintenance when it comes to grooming. Their coat (which is typically black in color) will need some upkeep though - at least once every six weeks if not sooner! The Boston Terrier side of things brings in two colors into this equation: brown and white as well as a curly tail which makes them stand out from other mixed breeds. This also means they may end up shedding more than your average dog too so be prepared to clean fur off of your furniture and clothing.
Pug-Boston Terrier Mix Personality

Tail-wagging hearts are at the core of these dogs with almost no mean bone in their bodies! Who can't love a dog who always wants to play? The Bugg is smart - they learn tricks quickly, enjoy learning new things, and don't have problems understanding instructions even when you're not using words that the pup understands from day one. They also rank high on most people's "cutest mix" list so what more could you ask for?!
How much exercise do Pug-Boston Terrier Mix require?

As long as he's getting enough exercise from all that playing outside, bedtime should come easy for him because even though he'll want to keep exploring after dark, his body will have had enough of everything else by then. The average Boston Terrier lives 13-14 years so if you adopt one today it may very well still be there when your grandchildren arrive!"

A few things to bear in mind if considering the Bugg:
- They will shed quite heavily and are prone to allergies like many mixed breeds
- Their playful nature means some training may be needed from an early age not just for house-training but teaching good behaviour around cats or smaller furries (if these beasts aren’t already part of your family) - this could prove challenging especially while still little themselves.
But we know that dogs always seem to find a way of making their humans love them, no matter the bumps and scrapes!
The Bugg will need to be taken for walks each day – not too much distance early on but as they grow they’re sure to keep up with you. The Boston terrier mix can live happily in an apartment or house, so long as there is plenty of playtime allotted (and I mean lots!)
A word about appearance : take care when grooming this dog because it has very short hair which means that any knots could become tangled quickly if not brushed regularly. You may also notice some light shedding around the home before your pup begins a major brush off session - just try and remember that they always look better afterwards ;)
