Is the Boxer / German Shepherd Dog Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Boxer Shepherd

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Boxer Shepherd is a cross between a pure Boxer and a pure German Shepherd Dog, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. Whether this mix was created by accident or design, thanks to its guarding heritage on both sides, it can be socialized and trained as an excellent watchdog by the consistent, responsible owner. An abused dog could become a problem animal.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the Boxer Shepherd is likely to be large and quite powerful in appearance, although whether it looks more like the Boxer or more like the GSD or just a mix-up of the two breeds can be a matter of chance.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, if you invest the time and training to properly socialize this mix, you should expect a fine watchdog who will also enjoy participating in activities with you such as hiking, obedience training, or jogging. A bored dog could be a destructive or even a dangerous dog.
