Feeding

Health issues

The Bugg can inherit health problems from either the Boston or the Pug, or they may be healthier than either parent breed. Both of these parent breeds are given to Brachycephalic issues due to their mashed faces. They could face respiratory issues or eye issues because of this.

You can easily have your play time inside if you don’t have a fenced yard. Because of their faces and breathing issues do not let them get overheated.
