So what are boxer mix dogs? To all extents and purposes, there are two types of dogs that exist outside of the breeding classifications – pedigree dogs or purebreds and cross breeds or mutts, as they are colloquially known. This distinction largely affects the way in which people view every single dog and leads to many misconceptions. For example, if any individual mentions mix dogs then the likelihood is that most people with think of mutts. As a result, they may think of the Boxer mixes as those crossed with Staffordshire Bull Terriers or any other similar breed by pure attraction of the father to the mother. This is not the case.

In fact, Boxer mixes are the result of a carefully selected breeding process that actively looks to breed Boxers with certain breeds to create a more desirable dog. This may sound a little odd but it is based around the idea of breeding undesirable characteristics and genetic traits out of the dogs in question. Given the fact that the Boxer has suffered the development of several illnesses, ailments and diseases as a result of in and over breeding throughout the years, breeding Boxer mix dogs is now an accepted route for breeders to take. There are several types out there today, some of which are mentioned below.

The first of the Boxer mixes is the Bull Boxer, or the Bulloxer for short. This is effectively the result of the union between the Bulldog and the Boxer, although the name can also refer to breeding with a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. It is actually a recognized breed because the ACHC, or the American Canine Hybrid Club, accepts it. However, this breeding does have many critics because the two breeds most definitely have a lot of undesirable genetic traits between them, thus making it impossible for all of them to be bred out.

The Chow Chow Boxer is another of the Boxer mixes out there today. It is obviously a cross between a Chow Chow and a Boxer. These are not as common as other types of Boxer mix dogs as a result of the unique appearance of the breed. The body is long, the head is large and the coloring of the breed can be varying. They are significantly lighter than Boxers though for the most part. Another smaller Boxer mix is the Bogle, or the Boxer Beagle cross.

The two most popular Boxer mix dogs available through breeders today though are crosses with the Golden Retriever and the Labrador. The Golden Boxer and the Boxador are both beautiful dogs and neither have very many negative genetic traits as a rule. They are the most successful crosses, as well as the most popular amongst owners. Neither is recognized as a breed in its own right just yet but the popularity of the two may just result in them both being recognized in the near future! They are certainly leading the way in terms of the Boxer mix breeds and you will no doubt see more of them in the future.
