Full Answer

Puppies bred by crossing purebred parents from different breeds can have any combination of the parents' traits. Because both pugs and boxers have short coats and faces with wide foreheads, short muzzles and a marked break in the profile, pug/boxer puppies are likely to have these traits but may vary considerably in size. They are likely to be prone to the eye, dental and respiratory issues common to both breeds.
