The Box-A-Pug is a fun-loving attention-seeking dog inheriting the Pug’s cheerfulness and Boxer’s playful, energetic disposition. These companion pets are strongly protective of their family. They may not be an aggressive barker but vocalizes upon sensing any threat towards themselves or their kith and kin. Leaving them alone for prolonged periods is not recommended since these dogs tend to suffer from separation anxiety.
