Brandon the Bullboxer Staff (Boxer / Staffie mix) at 1 3/4 years old
The Bullboxer Staff is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Boxer and the American Staffordshire 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.
"I have a Bullboxer I am very proud of and would like to share her with you. Her name is Kali and she is American Staffordshire Terrier and American Boxer mixed. Her father was the Boxer so she has strong Boxer genes. She's very loving and affectionate and will wrap her arms around anyone who is crying and bring them toys. She's incredibly docile, even after being attacked by a German Shepherd who was off leash, she did not fight back but ran between my legs for help. She's very gentle with children and small animals, nurturing them the best way she knows how. She is also very dainty. Doesn't like wet grass or mud unless she is in a mood and then she will wallow like a pig. She loves swimming and will go out in the river or lake and swim in circles for hours. She loves sticks and logs, squeaky toys, and tug of war. She only drinks running water from the tub as well. She refuses bowl water. She loves hot foods like curry, cayenne or wasabi. She salivates, happy snorts, and dances the most for them."
"Olly Bear is about four years of age. He is fairly mellow, and loves to cuddle and just hang out with his favorite people. He is low-key, does well on the leash and knows his basic commands. Olly Bear is treat-motivated so we can see him learning all sorts of tricks. He is crate-trained and leash-trained. Olly Bear is great around other animals, as long as they don't try to mount him and show dominance. Olly Bear occasionally mounts other dogs, but a quick "get down" or "no" will get him to stop. Right now, he is being fostered with another mini Schnauzer and Poodle. They do wonderfully together. Olly Bear is friendly to people, and allows others to pet him. He often curls up on patio furniture to take a nap while we take him out to adoptions. It's quite a cute scene to watch:). He is a charmer. He has a sensitive personality; he will cower and bow his head down when he senses that a person is upset or angry. Perhaps this arises from his past when he was completely neglected, chained up, and left to die on his own. The Fuzzy Pet Foundation rescued him after he was seized from his original owners by law enforcement officers."

"Here is a pic of my 11-week-old Staffordshire Terrier / Boxer mix puppy Bella. She is very calm and LOVES kids. I am a nanny and she just loves all ages. She loves to cuddle and give you kisses. She has very bad puppy breath and flaunts it LOL. She is very proud and loves to play with my two cats. She is very receptive to her training. She is just a joy to have. I look forward to our life together...."
