It's a mutt, not a breed. Search for Boston information and Pug information, and from there, your guess is as good as anyone else's on what the dog will turn out to be like. Mutts are not predictable and can even be the complete opposite of the breeds in it.
Dogs cannot sin; that is a privilege exclusively for humans.
Hope your enojoying your new puppy! I have a Boston she is great! Very hyper and snores a little, my friends has 3 pugs and they snore and snort around a lot. They have made great pets for her, but she has spent a lot of money at the vet! Good luck with your new puppy!
I have a solid black male Pug/Boston Terrier mix. He wasn't bred to be that mix, just simply an "accident" from a relative who has both breeds. His father was a Boston Terrier, and his mother was a black Pug. He is now 11 1/2 years old. He is a great companion. Even though your post is older, I thought I would tell you a little bit about my dog for others who may have this mix. I was given my dog when he was 6 weeks old. I tried the kennel for training, but he broke my heart when he whined at night (I was young, only 20 years old.) He then became my sleeping partner. It took a lot of work to potty train him. Being a male, he's very territorial and likes to make his mark. When he was younger, he even liked to mark the furniture. He was very hyper, too, and still to this day is very enthusiastic. His energy is more like the Boston Terrier. He is excited when people come over, and he is always eager to go places. He loves to run and jump, and can jump very high. He was very easy to train for tricks. He can sit, shake, speak, jump, lay down, and roll over on demand of course for a treat. He is a very smart dog, too. He knows what it means when I put my shoes on, pack a suitcase, and he even understands many words that we have to spell in his presence. Most people do not recognize him as being part Pug. However, like a Pug, he does shed very much. He has a few allergy issues....mostly itchy skin during certain times of the year and he has flea dermatitis. During his older years, he has grown a few moles, but the vet says that comes with old age. Sometimes his eyes water and his nose runs, but I assume that many dogs do this. I remember the vet saying he wouldn't have those eye issues that the Pug has because of the position of his tear ducts. He did develop a cataract around 8 or 9 years old. He can still see very well, though. I read that Boston Terriers have hearing problems. He can hear VERY well, and is a pretty good guard dog. It is hard to sneak around him. My vet seems to think because of him being a mix of the two breeds that he may not have many of the health problems that the two breeds have. He does not have breathing problems like a Pug, but he does occasionally snore while sleeping. It is not annoying, yet rather cute. He does tend to pass gas, but who doesn't? I did fail to have him around small children (about 7 and younger) when he was younger (never thought about it), so he does not like sudden movements that they make when they around me and my husband. He is very protective, and will snap at someone if he thinks they are trying to hurt us. However, his bite is usually harmless, and with a quick pet he's your friend. The older he has gotten he does tend to be a little grumpy at times. If he's comfortable, sometimes he'll growl a little (harmless) if you try to move him, and he does not like to have his feet or toenails bothered. But like I said, this all came with old age. Even though he's older, his health has been remarkable.
I had no idea that people purposely tried to breed this mix, and I had never researched it until now. I always thought my dog was a one of a kind!
I hope this helps anyone that was curious about the mix, but I assume that with genetics these mixes will vary depending on what genes they inherit from which parent.
Buddy, 11 year old Boston Terrier/Pug mix. His father was a Boston Terrier and his mother was a black

Hello.Congrats to you i'm glad your little one is doing well.I have four pugs myself and they are a great little dog,mine are seniors but,you wouldn't know it,they are active little ones.Pugs can have health issues as well as other breeds but,if you take care of them then your vet bills won't be all that bad,it's all depending on how you care for your pet.
This is my one pug noah,my other rescue,he is blind and deaf but a love.
I have to take exception to that. Taking good care of your pet won't eliminate patellar luxation, hip dysplasia, skin allergies, genetic heart conditions, liver shunts or any other hereditary health condition. All these issues are costly and buying from a irresponsible breeder (like those producing crossbreeds) increases the risk.

I've read everyone's responses about the "bugg". I too, have one and even though there are those who would call them mixed breeds or mutts, they are in fact what breeders call "designer dogs". Peekapoo, Goldendoodles, Schnoodles, the list goes on and on. There are also people who take advantage of this. Case in point,a lady in Myrtle Beach has Maltese/Poodle puppies for sale at $1200. That's right $1200. These dogs can be registered at CKC. There are dogs registered there that can't be registered at AKC. They have standards don't you know. I had a beautiful black & white boxer, that AKC wouldn't register back 10 years ago. They do now. I got my Bugg because at the time I didn't know if I wanted a Pug or a Boston Terrier. Then there was an ad in the paper for Buggs. I got the best of both dogs. She's been a treasure from day 1.
