The Bullboxer Pit is a mongrel dog, a cross between the Boxer and American Pit Bull Terrier dog breeds. Powerful, faithful and energetic, these puppies inherit some of the best traits of their two parents. Bullboxer Pits are also sometimes called Pixoter or American Bullboxer. You can find these mixed breed dogs in shelters and rescues, so remember to always adopt. Bullboxer Pits can be loyal and protective companions, and they often get along well with children. However, due to the dog’s natural strength and sometimes stubborn nature, it is imperative that they are socialized from a very young age and throughout their lives. Reward-based training works especially well with this mixed breed. An attentive and responsible parent will bring out the best in the Bullboxer Pit.
The Bullboxer Pit is a mixed breed dog. It is not a pure breed like its Boxer or American Pit Bull Terrier parents. Bullboxer Pit dogs can tend to overeat. Owners must be diligent in controlling diet. Bullboxer Pits have often been used as farm or guard dogs, mostly due to their loyal nature and powerful strength. These dogs are often referred to as “nanny dogs” due to their protective nature with children. The Bullboxer Pit’s coat has been seen in almost every color imaginable. The most commonly seen coat colors are brown, tan, yellow and black. Although their coat is easy to maintain, Bullboxer Pits shed throughout the year. Brushing can help. Because of their exercise requirements, physical strength and need for training, this breed may not be best for novice dog owners.
The parent breeds of the Bullboxer Pit have a long and interesting heritage. Boxers appeared in Germany in the 19th century; the dogs were often used to transport supplies and carry messages to troops during the first two world wars. The American Pit Bull Terrier was first used in blood sports and was used as bait for bears and bulls. The earliest Bullboxer Pits can be traced back to a German breed of dog called the Bullenbeisser, which is now extinct. However, some breeders continue to mix Boxers and American Pit Bull Terriers to this day. Because of the care and attention Bullboxer Pits require from an owner, many of them can end up in shelters. Therefore, consider contacting local rescue groups and shelters if you are thinking of adding the Bullboxer Pit to your home. There is no need to rely on a breeder if you want to bring home one of these mixed breed dogs.
