The Bulloxer is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Boxer and the American Bulldog. 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.

Mia the Bulloxer as a 6 month old puppy—"We brought Mia home at 9 weeks. Never had this mix breed before. We've had two Keeshonds in the past 24 years. Mia is absolutely adorable! She loves everyone, loves sticks, rocks, old lemons from our tree (she barks at those). She loves walking, playing with other dogs and traveling. She is spoiled and knows how to manipulate us already. She is like our first grandchild. Easy to train both tricks and potty. We just love her."

"This is a picture of our Bulloxer puppy Kap’n Khaos when he was about three months old. At 6 months old he was about 65 lbs. and still growing. Great personality and very smart. Too smart if you ask me. His father is a registered American Bulldog who weighs about 110 lbs. and his mother is a beautiful registered brindle Boxer, a little on the small side at about 45 lbs. He’s being trained as a therapy dog to go into hospices to visit people who need a little smile. I think he can do it! I know he makes me laugh."

Khaos the Bulloxer at 7 months old—"I don’t think he’s going to be a small dog like the lady we got him from said he would be. He’s already up to 72 lbs. and he’s still a growing boy. He’s completed one of his certifications for obedience and has two more to go before he can be certified as a therapy dog. He’s a great dog and is very smart and very gentle. Sometimes he’s a bull in a china shop when he gets to playing in the house but he calms down when he’s called on. He thinks he’s a lap dog like our little Jack Russell mix."

Sam the Bulloxer Puppy sitting on a rug with a pillow behind it

This is Sam. He is an American Bulldog / Boxer mix. His dad is a 140-lb. American Bulldog and his mom is a 90-lb. Boxer. He is 4 ½ months old and a wonderful puppy with a lot of personality. He loves to play catch and he runs faster than any other dog at the dog park. He is very loving and has a sweet demeanor but definitely has a lot of energy and is a bit hard-headed. He is a wonderful addition to our family."

Sam the Bulloxer at 3 1/2 years old—"He's every bit of 110 lbs. He's still the fastest dog I've ever seen, and has grown to have the best personality. He watches television with us and plays with everyone (friendly to him) any chance he can get. All he wants out of life is the thrill of playing in the shallow waters and cuddles."

"Tahoe, my Bulloxer is 2 years old in this picture and he is at his favorite place, the beach. I’ve had about 5 dogs now and he is by far the best dog yet. You can just look at him and laugh…he’s loving, dorky, smart, protective, and a friend to everyone and everything…including cats! Some of Tahoe’s hobbies include getting buried in the sand, chasing flies, hanging out with everyone and barking at objects he views for the first time…fake plants, fire hydrants, and parked motorcycles!"

"Roxy the Bulloxer at 8 months old is such a loving dog and protective of us all, including my kids and my three other dogs. All small breeds... Japanese Chin, Cockapoo and a teacup Shih Tzu. And I have 2 small kids. She is around 55 pounds or more in this picture. We just love Roxy. She is a sweetheart."

Close Up - Roxy the white Bulloxer with its mouth open

"Roxy the Bulloxer at 4 years of age—We are so happy to have her and she is happy to have us. She currently weighs 65 pounds. If all Bulloxers are like Roxy I don't think I would get any other type of dog again. She is so loving and kind to all of us."

"Her favorite pastime is chasing lizards around the yard. I think the lizards enjoy the game as well. I have yet to see Roxy actually hurt one once she catches it under her nose. Most of the time the lizards get away at the last second before capture."
