Species group: Mixed Breeds
Other name(s): Bullboxer Staff
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 Bullboxer Staff is a cross between a pure Boxer and a pure American Staffordshire Terrier, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. The reality is that not all of these mixes are being created by ethical breeders with good intentions. Know your breeder or rescue-- and know yourself. Properly socialized, these protective dogs can be loyal companions. But an improperly or irresponsibly trained dog could be a hazard to the neighborhood. Also check local laws as well as your insurance coverage to be sure you are allowed any AmStaff mix.
