I am Susy, i found this message board while searching the web. I searched pug/boston terrier mix on google.com and this message bored came up with a thread all about how alot of you have them! Well i have a pug/boston terrier he is 5 months old. I purchased him fr $450.00 in December from a breeder 45 miutes away from me and he is just a little devil! He chews on everything including me and my parents and gets into everything. Does anyone have this problem with there bugs? I am also glad i found the thread because i don't know anyone else personally who has this dog breed. My dog's name is Shadow he is a brindle color. He's about 15 pounds by now. He's not bad all the time. But if i'm sitting at the dining room table and i leave for a minute he gets up on my chair so i have to push my chair in all the time.
Hi! Congrats on your new puppy. Puppies at that age are just like babies. They explore by putting things in their mouths. But when a puppy does it, it's usally quite painful. It's best to set some ground rules with the pup and let him know that "mouthing" is something that doesn't please you. Then make sure he has a lot of chew toys of his own to replace your arm and hand with. Be consistant with letting him know this is unacceptable. Pups pick up the word "NO" real easily. This is the time to mold that little guy into a really great companion.
Would really like to see some pictures. Love brindles!
i have a bug and he just melts my heart his name is cody and he is 17 pounds and he is also a brindle color and is a little over a year. when i first got him he would always bite he had tiny sharp teeth but i new he was teething when ever he would bite hard id yell be easy and give him a chewy toy instead. now when we play and he play bites he is very easy. i love these dogs. he is very smart he can roll over sit down crawl give high five and a few other things. he also loves to cuddle and sleep with me at night.they love to be babied. i think your going to love your dog. especialy when he gets older. he is like my little angel he has the cutest llittle face his nose isnt to pug like and he has big brown googly eyes and a curly tail i absolutely love him. give the biting thing time all puppies do it. P.S i found this site googly their breed to lol.
Would one of you post pictures I have never seen one before. They sound adorable. As a matter of fact I want a Boston Terrier real bad but the only people I found local didnt seem like good breeders well I know they were not. For some reason the mom only had 2 pups and the mom looked unhealthy and the dad was only like 8 months old. Also The pups had 2 different color eyes. Anyhow a picture would be great.
Immunique, the Boston 'breeder' you went to sounds like the typical ignorant byb, with absolutely no standards, or knowledge. You never breed an 8 month old male, and the eye colour, is actually giving me goosebumps. Too bad you were'nt closer, I know a few really good Boston breeders. To the op, there are a few people on here with your mix, although I'd say more with a Pug/Beagle cross. Your dog will probably be a high energy little terror for the first year, and you'll have to take him to obedience, and puppy kindergarten. It's hard to say which traits he will have, but my Bostons are easy to train, very intelligent, and so affectionate. I hope you enjoy your dog, and welcome to TP.
