The Bugg is a cross between the Boston Terrier and the Pug. These dogs will likely be very small, as both of the breeds that come together to make them are! You can expect them to be flat-faced and they may come in a wide variety of colors (though if they take after the Boston Terrier, they’ll be black and white).
The main thing you should watch when taking on a Bugg is the potential health issues. As these dogs are brachycephalic, they’re prone to a whole host of things that can happen, such as respiratory issues. Warm weather can be a problem, and they often aren’t allowed to board flights due to the risk of the pressure changes. Make sure you’re well aware of what you’re taking on, and purchasing pet insurance is always a very sensible idea for dogs like this.
Bugg – A Smart Dog
Since the Boston Terrier is so intelligent, your Bugg likely will be too. They’re an ideal pet for some because although they learn fast, they don’t need much exercise. You’ll still have to provide stimulation and enrichment to keep them happy, but they’ve got nothing on, say, a Border Collie!
They tend to get along well with the whole family, including small children. However, you should still teach your children how to interact with the dog to ensure smooth introductions. They can live with other pets, but some Buggs do like to be the center of attention. The best way to introduce them to other dogs is on neutral territory before bringing both into the home. As long as you follow the proper methods, as well as training and socializing your pup well, they’ll be fine. They love attention, and they love to play!
This could be the perfect dog to share your life with.
