Are Buggs Good Guard Dogs?

His stint will likely be remembered for his final appearance as a Tiger. Martin’s trust in Buggs peaked in MU’s first-round NCAA Tournament appearance against Oklahoma, and the guard wound up playing more minutes than starting guard Xavier Pinson, a controversial decision that left fans questioning Martin’s expertise.

Are Buggs Aggressive?

When it comes to other pets, Buggs can get along with other animals if they are introduced slowly and calmly, and early socialization will help this go smoothly. If not, your Bugg might show off their Boston Terrier-inherited territorial streak and become aggressive with other animals, especially other dogs. Buggs like to be the center of attention, and they may prefer to be the only pet in the house.

Buggs Background

Because the Buggs is a hybrid breed that hasn’t been around for too long, there aren’t many details pertaining to his origin. Despite the lack of details, we can still get a good idea of what kind of dog the Buggs is based on the origin stories of his parent breeds; the Pug and the Boston Terrier. The first breed on the list, the Boston Terrier, is fondly known as the American Gentleman due to his friendly and jovial personality. He is believed to be a mix between the Bulldog and the White English Terrier, which explains the breed’s coloring and small body type. The Boston Terriers were once known as the Bull Terrier, but eventually took the name “Boston Terrier” in 1889. Originating in the United States, the Boston Terrier was bred to be a best friend and has a happy-go-lucky personality. The second breed is one that everyone knows and loves’ the Pug. This fun-loving little dog originated in China and was brought over to Holland by Portuguese traders in the 16th century. This breed eventually became very popular in royal courts and was favored by English royalty when Dutch traders brought Pugs into the country around the year 1689. It took quite some time for the American Kennel Club to recognize the Pug as a breed, however they eventually got around to it in the year 1889 and the Pug has grown in popularity ever since; most likely due to its small size and super loving personality. By combining these two breeds you end up with a companion dog that loves to cuddle but still has enough energy to keep him from blending into the background of your home.

Family and Bonding

In 1988, Mr. Buggs discussed with William Perry a plan to establish a narcotics distribution operation: Mr. Buggs would provide Perry with cocaine and heroin to sell. Unbeknownst to Mr. Buggs, Perry was acting as an informant for law enforcement officers. On June 16, 1988, Officer John T. Jones accompanied Perry to a house in South Bend, Indiana, to purchase heroin from Mr. Buggs. While these three individuals waited in the living room of the house for the heroin to be delivered, Mr. Buggs became nervous about the delay. After placing a telephone call, Mr. Buggs went into a bedroom and returned to the living room carrying a large pistol. Both Officer Jones and Perry observed Mr. Buggs carry the firearm into the room. Mr. Buggs then placed the weapon next to him on the couch and proceeded to measure out two to three ounces of cocaine into individual packets. Eventually, an individual arrived with the heroin; Perry then purchased approximately one-half ounce of heroin from Mr. Buggs. Perry and Mr. Buggs also discussed arrangements for a second transaction, and Mr. Buggs agreed to provide three to seven ounces of heroin at $800 per ounce.


Just like their parents, Buggs can be incredible companions. The mixed breed tends to be outgoing and friendly, even with children. They also tend to pick a favorite human and stick by their side, which makes them ideal pets for one-person homes as well as families.

Bugg Nature

Professor Richard Buggs is an evolutionary biologist. His research group analyses DNA sequences to understand how plants evolve in nature. His group designs strategies to accelerate plant evolution in response to climate change and new pests and pathogens. Richard has published on a variety of evolutionary processes including: natural selection, speciation, hybridisation and whole genome duplication. His largest research programme is on the genetic basis of ash tree resistance to ash dieback and the emerald ash borer. Richard is a Christian, and sometimes blogs on issues where biology and Christianity intersect.


"This is our fabulous Lucie, our Bugg at 3 years old. This is a picture I took in a park in Laval, Canada. We instantly fell in love with this 20-pound athlete 2 and a half years ago. I just said athlete because this dog can jump up 4 feet high. I also teach her to play dead, high five, dance and speak. Very intelligent dog, for sure. She is perfect for children, even if I play rough with her, she completely switches her playing ways when children are around.


Buggs as a Pack Animal

Then he remembered the two Flats Buggs he had picked up at Pack & Paddle at the insistence of Scott Bienvenu. He tied one on and started catching fish. He told me it made the difference between catching 1 or 2 fish without the Flats Buggs and catching 9 or 10 with them! I thanked him for calling me, and told him it never gets old to hear stuff like that.

Physical Traits

Flats Buggs are miniature versions of our top-selling Curl-Tail Jigs, tied on our bonefish jig heads. They’re the most effective and versatile bonefish and light tackle jig in the Buggs arsenal. Every saltwater gamefish that feeds on small baitfish, shrimp, and crabs will readily eat a Flats Bugg. They come in two sizes – 1/16 oz. and 3/16 oz. and can be fished in three different ways. They’ve already gained a reputation as “trip savers” in certain situations.
