Looking for a Bugg (Boston Terrier/Pug) puppy.

Hey there. I am from Minnesota and I recently lost my first and only dog. She died at age 12. She was an amazing Pug that had our whole family completely in love with her. After debate, we have decided we would like another dog. We have seen pictures of these Bugg puppies and I must say, they are so cute. I am willing to drive a long ways for this, and any help anyone has will be appreciated. I would prefer a young female. Thank you so much. -Kyle

Please check a shelter, im sure there are many Beagle Pug mixes there.
A topic similar to this has come up on here recently , not to scare you away i would like it if you were to read it, just so you can get a better understanding of "Designer Breeds"

I know it is really long, and there are many good points about what you are about to support by buying a "Bugg" from someone who is calling themselves a breeder.
I truely hope you will consider a rescue, check out Petfinder too there is alot of dogs and puppies on there looking for homes!

I've heard that beagle/pug mixes can have problems, as they have the beagle desire to howl but a squashed pug nasal passage. Please don't support greedy backyard breeders by paying hundreds of dollars for a mutt! There are already so many wonderful mixed breeds in the shelters!

This is actually the first time I have heard of a Bugg (which by the way is not a breed, its a mix)...I have heard of Puggle's before but never a Bugg.

I think it is unwise to get a dog just because it looks cute.

Here's a link to a pug/boston terrier called Lola in Oklahoma City: http://search.petfinder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=4812142

I am not sure if you have owned any other breeds aside from a Pug, so I think its important to note what the description of the above mentioned dog says: "Lola was relinquished because she was more high energy than expected and sometimes would not like going in her crate when her family went to work each day." You need to be prepared that a Bugg will probably have more demanding needs than a pure Pug.

I guess everyone else missed this, but he is looking for a Boston Terrier/Pugg mix, not a Beagle/Pugg. Regardless, all of the above advice applies. (minus the beagles specific stuff. ie. howling, but as BT's are pretty yappy, the dog will likely still be a noise maker)
