Abby the Boxador (Boxer / Lab mix) at 2 years old—"Abby is a half Boxer half Lab. She loves to run and play with other dogs and she loves water. Abby is great with my 4-year-old son and they have been together since she was a puppy. Abby has no problems with cats or goats, but likes to chase sheep and eat chickens. She loves to dig and has dug a hole deep enough that she can disappear into it. Abby is a big sweetheart and thinks she is a lap dog. She wants nothing more than to be loved and to give all her love in return. She has such funny coloring everyone is always surprised she is a Boxer / Lab."
The Boxador is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Boxer and the Labrador Retriever. 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 either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breedmulti-generation crosses.

Her fur looks like a Boxer fur but is a bit thicker and longer. Very friendly towards children and people. She makes everybody feel special so we don't tell them that she like that with everybody. A very energetic, playfull, strong and happy dog. She has some issues with insecure dogs but good with all others. Fairly obedient when she wants te be. Still working on that."
Duke the Boxador (Boxer / Lab mix) at 1 year old—"Duke has the sweetest personality, he loves everyone. He is a 60-pound lap dog and is at my feet wherever I go. You definitely know he's part Boxer because of the way he uses his front paws for everything! He is also very clownish, making him very entertaining to watch. Everyone comments on how handsome Duke is and they always want to know what kind of dog he is.”
"Hi, my name is Moose. Here is a picture of me when my Mommy and Daddy first got me when I was 6 weeks old and a picture of me at 6 months old and weighing 65 lbs. I love to play fetch and ride in the car. I learned that I shouldn't go potty in the house in only two weeks, though I did have a few accidents, but now I remember to tell my parents that I have to go outside when I feel the urge. I am very affectionate and play well with other dogs and grownups. Mommy and Daddy think I will do well around children, once I realize my size. I sometimes think I am a lap dog, which is OK for Daddy, but I can get a little heavy for Mommy. I do have a bad habit of shredding newspaper when given the chance, but come on what puppy doesn't? My daddy says I have a great personality and show it with the funny faces I make, and my mommy is always calling me a character and a ham. My parents say that they can't believe how lucky they were to get such a smart, easy to train puppy."

Annabel the Boxador (Labrador Retriever / Boxer mix) at 5 months old
"This is my puppy Faith. She is a 30-lb., three-and-a-half-month-old Boxador puppy (Boxer / Lab mix). She was the only puppy in the litter that had a chocolate brown nose and hazel eyes, so I just had to pick her. How could anyone not love that cute face?! She is a bundle of energy, always up to something. She loves to swim in the local pond, go for long walks in the woods, play with her toys and run around the yard with our little mini Dachshund."
"She walks on her leash like a pro now and has already learned her basic commands like sit, stay, come, down, off, shake, speak, quiet, etc. She is turning out to be one of the best dogs we have ever had, and I am looking forward to her company for years to come."
