There are a lot of breeders breeding what they call the Miniature Boxer. While many breeders have their own version of what goes into the genes of the dog, they all seem to have one goal in mind and that is for the dog to look like a smaller version of the purebred Boxer. Some have been more successful than others in their attempts.
There are even cases where the dog does not even have Boxer in it at all, for example some are crossing the Rat Terrier with a Pug and calling it a Mini Boxer. Others call this mix a Puggat.
Another example is a cross of the Pug with a Toy Fox Terrier. Others call this mix a Toy Poxer.
Still others are more seriously working on creating a new purebred, writing a breed standard and registering it. These particular dogs are stated to have at least 50% Boxer. 25% Boxers can be considered as breeding stock as well, as long as they are being used to breed for higher percentages. They can have up to 25% Pug, 25% Beagle, and up to 50%Boston Terrier, not to exceed 50% total Pug, Beagle and Boston combined. Other breeds may also be included in the future to broaden the gene pool.
So many people think there’s no cuter puppy than a boxer puppy.
But many of us wish they could stay that small.
Toy Boxers grow up to be the size of a Boxer puppy between 5 and 20 lbs.!
Ideal for the person who loves the AKC Boxer but doesn’t have the space or energy to keep up with one. You are going to love the smaller alternative, the Boxiebear. He fits in!
