Is the Boxer Mix right for you?

Species group:

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 purebreed Boxer is a highly regarded family pet and a loyal watchdog. Originally developed as a working dog that apparently did everything from pulling carts to police work, this breed is strong, energetic, and intelligent. Some individuals can be stubborn unless you know how to be a leader, so bring your best dog training skills to the relationship.While the character of your Boxer mix can be influenced by the genes from other dogs, it's worth knowing the basics about Boxers to get a general idea of what to expect.

Appearance / health:
Often the justification for creating the mixed breed dog is to reduce the odds of the dog inheriting a genetic disorder linked to inbreeding. However, if your dog is obviously still mostly a Boxer, it's worth knowing about the problems that sometimes impact short-faced dogs. This animal probably can't be expected to thrive in very hot or very cold climates.

Behavior / temperament:
It's said that a Boxer's temperament is as much a matter of training as it is of genetics. You should expect your Boxer to be alert but gentle, loyal and obedient. While they are usually a rather easy-going breed, some can be stranger-aggressive and potentially overly protective of their family. That's doubly true of the Boxer mix, since you may not know the other elements that went into your pet's DNA. Be prepared to provide top notch training if you want a top notch pet.
