Also known as a mutt. Lovely breed.

Hanna Thompson

You and your “mutt” comments!! I’m quite surprised this mix got a “lovely breed” comment though, Frenchtons surely didn’t.

Tiffany Looney

I love mutts I have three 🙂 just call them what they are.

Tiffany Looney

I meant a mutt is a Lovely breed. Lol.

My Fig is 3/4 boston 1/4 pug. I think his pug shows through his stockiness. He’s almost 40lbs!

Jamie Palesh Pagels

He’s almost 40 lbs…wowza. Lewis still clocking in at 30 lbs.

Holly Christine

Sarah Elizabeth

No way he has pug in him?

Amelia Jeffery

Sarah Elizabeth yeah just looks Boston to me

Holly Christine

Yep. His mom was half pug, half boston.

They are cute, but what is the benefit of the hybrid, or are they a case of ‘why not?’
Similar size, similar temperament… Does the pug primarily give different coat variations? Does the pug tone down the activity level or mischievous curiosity of a BT? If so, not sure I would be interested… Those are very endearing qualities of the BT to me.

Pugin and Patoot ❤️

I don’t like them, sorry to say. Prefer just Bostons.

Sandy Hyde

Lol that wasn’t the question but each to their own. I’ve had a pug and currently have a Boston and I prefer them also. My pug had allergies and shed hair a lot. Do the bugg dogs shed much?

Elyse Campisi

I don’t feel like ours shed much
