Is the Boston Terrier / Boxer Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Miniature Boxer, Mini Boxer

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 Miniature Boxer is often a cross between a pure Boston Terrier and a pure Boxer, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This so-called designer hybrid is intended to create a smaller, more manageable Boxer type that fits into more families. There are other ways that breeders attempt to create the so-called Mini Boxers, but on this page, we'll focus on the Boston Terrier / Boxer Mix.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the entire purpose for many breeders is to create a dog that looks much like a smaller Boxer, and often that's pretty much exactly what you get from many Boston Terrier / Boxer Mixes.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, some breeders believe that the Boston Terrier / Boxer form of the Mini Boxer retains more of the Boxer's guardian abilities in a smaller, apartment-friendly package. The smaller size lets less experienced owners feel more confident in their abilities to properly train and socialize their pet as a good guardian as well as a devoted companion.
