Other Names
  • Buggs
  • Bug
  • Pugin

The Bugg is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Pug and the Boston Terrier. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

He loves sleeping in, going for jeep rides, bouncing off the walls while playing. He is Very playful and loving it's never a dull moment with him. Constantly getting into stuff. Some of his bad habits are chewing and licking everything.”

"This is our fabulous Lucie, our Bugg at 3 years old. This is a picture I took in a park in Laval, Canada. We instantly fell in love with this 20-pound athlete 2 and a half years ago. I just said athlete because this dog can jump up 4 feet high. I also teach her to play dead, high five, dance and speak. Very intelligent dog, for sure. She is perfect for children, even if I play rough with her, she completely switches her playing ways when children are around.”

"Butch is a Boston Terrier / Pug hybrid shown here at 7 years old. Many breeders call Butch's breed a Bugg or Buggs, although Butch's breeder called him a Pugin. Butch has been a service animal for almost 4 years and he is very good at it. Butch doesn't do naughty things. Most of the time he is a perfect little angel, but daddy makes sure he doesn't forget! Butch has added so much love to not just to our lives, but the lives of our entire family. We could not ask for more from Butch, he is just a little ball of love and peace."
