The Boxer is a mixed breed of dog, a cross between the Boxer and Labrador Retriever dog breeds. Medium to large in size, intelligent and totally devoted to their families, these puppies inherit some of the best qualities of their two parents. Boxers are also known as Laboxers, Boxerlabs and Boxerdors. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these mixed-breed dogs in breed-specific shelters and rescues, so remember to adopt. Don’t buy! Boxers aren’t a great choice for novice pet owners, but if you’re looking for a furry, social family companion, reach out! Large homes with yards are ideal, but not necessary, as long as these dogs get exercise and plenty of love and attention. Boxers are protective of their loved ones and are gentle with people, children and other dogs. However, they should not be left alone for too long, or they can become bored and destructive. AniMall24 recommends a good large and spacious cage for your big Boxer to have a place to rest and relax. You should also buy a dog brush and massager for your short-haired puppy.


Boxers are mixed breed dogs. They are not pure breeds like their Boxer or Labrador Retriever parents. The main colors of the Boxer are: black, brown, brindle and white. They are rarely solid, their coats usually have a mixture of two or more colors. They are generally not considered allergy friendly. Fortunately, their coat is very easy to brush. One good brushing a week will suffice. The Boxer needs a 30-minute walk, a walk or a game of fetch, plus an hour of active running around the yard each day to help burn off pent-up energy. Boxers love children and make great playmates for kids of all ages. Always supervise interactions between dogs and young children. Make sure you have time to care for this active puppy, as he doesn’t like to be left alone for long periods of time and can suffer from separation anxiety. Boxers can get along well with other dogs and cats, especially if they have been raised with them.


The Boxer breed may have existed naturally over the years, but designer breeders began intentionally mixing Boxers with Labrador Retrievers in North America, probably in the 1990s. Breeders began mixing the two parent breeds to create an active, protective, family companion and guard dog. Mixing these two breeds also helps to eliminate some of the health problems that are common in pure breeds. Breeders continued to create Boxers as the demand for mixed breed puppies increased. Although the Boxer began as a designer breed, some have ended up in shelters or in the care of rescue groups. Consider adoption if you decide this is the breed for you. Check local shelters, look for Boxer rescues, or check with breed-specific Boxer and Labrador rescues, as they often help rehome mixed breeds.
