Information and Pictures

This is Leo the Bullboxer Pit at 4 years old. His dad was the Pit Bull and his mom was the Boxer. Leo was the runt of the litter. Leo looks like a mix of Spencer the Pit Bull with Bruno the Boxer, who are both neutered male dogs, but hypothetically speaking. :)

Description

The Bullboxer Pit is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Boxer and the American Pit Bull Terrier. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in any of the breeds in the hybrid. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

"This is Jaxson at a little over a year old. His dad was a brindle purebred Boxer and his mother was a fawn purebred Pit Bull. He took over his mom's traits for the most part. He is a great dog, and great with children."

"Raj and Danielle are the proud owners of Marco, a Pit / Boxer / everything-else mix. He's 11 months old (soon to be 1) and enjoys chew toys, meat sticks, long walks on the beach (literally) and generally giving everyone love."

Pharoah the Bullboxer Pit at 1 1/2 years old—"Pharoah loves the water. He was a bit shy at first, but once he got to know me he came around. He has a high dislike for other dogs from being attacked at a young age, but he is a good dog all around."

Kabo the pure white Bullboxer Pit as a puppy at 4 months old in the back of a red pick-up truck—"Kabo's father is a Boxer and mother is a Pit Bull. He is a energetic little guy who is constantly pestering his mom to play with him. He loves his treats and is starting to learn basic commands very quickly. When the day is over and it's time to call it a night he's the first one to cuddle up with you and is off to dreaming (most likely of chasing his mom around the yard) within minutes. He has been a great addition to the family, and unlike his parents when they were his age he has been great at not chewing on things other than his chew toys. I've only lost one hat to his playfull chewing, which is considerably better than countless shoes, cords, hats etc that his parents had destroyed by the time they were 4 months old. I look forward to watching him grow up and turn into what I'm sure will be the most popular and handsome dog on the block."

Kismet the Bullboxer Pit at 1 year and 7 months old ready to play—"Kismet (Kiz) was given to me by a stranger when she was only a few weeks old. She is the most loving dog I have ever met! She loves giving kisses and being the center of attention. She loves babies and other animals (even my temporary pet pig) she enjoys chasing fireflies and cuddling up in my arms to sleep. She is a goofy pup who brings a smile to anyone she meets."

Rocket the Bullboxer Pit (American Pit Bull / Boxer mix) at 2 years old—"He is a very energetic and hyper dog. He is very fast, hence his name. Rocket is a fast learner. He learned many tricks including high five, shake, sit and lie down at only 4 months old. Rocket loves to learn! He loves Meaty Bones. He is a loving dog like a Boxer but also strong and muscular like an American Pit Bull. I rescued Rocket from people who were feeding him raw meat and kicking him just when he was about a month old. He is the best dog I have ever had."

"This is Walter Mellin (get it?) at three months. His mother was a Pit Bull and his father a Boxer. He's very sweet and sleeps a lot. He's a climber! He's also very smart. He already knows sit, stay, lie down, come here, his name, go potty, as well as a variety of other words that indicate where to go (crate, bedroom, outside). He is so gentle that he can attack a balloon playfully for 35 minutes before popping it...with his nails, not with his teeth! Everyone loves him and he's changing everyone's attitudes about Pit Bull type dogs (or Pit Bull mixes)."

"These pictures were taken when Seven was about eight months old. She was about 47 pounds (22 kg). She should peak at about 60-70 pounds (27-32 kg), which probably won’t be reached until about two years of age! If you look at this picture you will see both Pit Bull and Boxer, she really shows the Boxer in her when she is excited and wags her tail. It moves her whole hind end it is really funny! She also is a lot like a Boxer with other dogs she is not very aggressive at all, but she is a lot more mellow than a Boxer or even most Pit Bulls. She is truly magnificent!

"This is Rude Dog, usually we call him Roo. We found him on a golf course almost a year ago and since then he has grown from a very shy and timid 7 pounds to a brave and playful 70-lb "lap dog" (or so he thinks!) We estimate him to about a year or so. His favorite things in the world are doggy treats and going for a walk every night, especially in the snow. He is very well behaved and responds very well to new people and other dogs he meets; he wants to be friends with EVERYONE!! He knows his rules and boundaries but every once in a while he slips up and may chew a wire or destroy his blanket, but, hey, if he can't upset you, he can't give you his adorable puppy dog eyes! Here he is on his bed waiting for a treat, it took at least 15 minutes to get a decent picture."

Tango the Bullboxer Pit at 7 years old and about 73 pounds—his owner says, "I think this photo shows off the outstanding physique that Bullboxers often have, between the width of the Pit Bull or Bulldog and the dogline and longer legs of the Boxer. Every Bulloxer I have met displays these traits (although I have admittedly only met a handful)."
