Today is Boxer (mix) day at GaPundit.com in honor of several of Dolly’s favorite play buddies who are Boxers. What stands out to me as someone who is not an expert in the breed is that they seem to always want to play and I’ve never seen a Boxer have any problems with other dogs. Of course, any dog is an individual, but that seems to be part of their makeup. Part of what makes them great playmates for Dolly is that they love to run and tussle, and I suspect they’re best for an active family or owner who can ensure they get plenty of play and exercise.
A brief look through the shelters shows me that they look to be a frequent component in randomly-bred dogs that end up in shelters will little hope of being adopted. I also suspect that when Boxer mixes have a broad snout it often leads to their being labeled as “Pit Bulls,” further decreasing their chances of making it out of the shelter alive.
I love the look of this dog – she looks sweet and affectionate. Bingo is such a sweet girl! An adult female Boxer mix, she is a little shy at first, but she warms up quickly. She seems like a very calm and gentle dog who would make an absolutely wonderful pet. Bingo is available for adoption from DeKalb County Animal Shelter in Decatur, Ga.
