Default mini boxer??

So i'm not sure if anyone else has come across this but.. a mini boxer?? To me they just look like a large pug.. they completely take away from the standard and I cant believe people are actually doing this??
Sorry if i'm not supposed to put up this site, but you have to see these things..

Experienced, responsible, knowledgeable breeders of Mini Rottweilers (aka Carlin Pinschers) and Mini Boxers. This is a very recent undertaking and there is much work to do to develop these strains/types of dogs.

If you are like us, you love the qualities of the Boxer and Rottweiler, but for whatever reason, don't want to have a 75 - 140 pound dog to house, feed and care for. You would like a smaller dog, but don't want a "Foo-Foo" type dog. Imagine, the handsome good looks of the large dog in a much smaller, more manageable package!!

Just look at our gorgeous dogs!!






What is a Mini-Boxer?
Thank you for your interest in this excellent hybrid breed: a mix between a select male pug and a choice female toy fox terrier. For a slightly larger version, a male pug is bred to a female Boston terrier, which also produce what some folks call a” bug”, pugston, or mini-boxer. The pug X toy foxes are tan with black muzzles. The pug X Bostons can be similarly-colored, but also can be brindle or black /white. We work mostly with 3 local small-time breeders to produce these dogs. Shortly after birth the pup’s tails are docked, resulting in a hardy dog that has striking resemblance to a normal-size boxer both in physical looks and temperament, yet about ¼ the size! Mini-boxers end up weighing 12-18 # as adults, 11-13” high at the shoulders, have straight short coats (normal shedding), with a short snout that allows normal breathing. They make excellent little house dogs: well-tempered, alert and full of play, and yet cuddly and responsive. They are eager to please and train easily. Mini-boxers are excellent with children and other animals. Although this breed has been bred only about 4 years, the record thus far has been good: no known congenital defects, and full of hybrid vigor.

It's just another mixed *breed; this particular mix does not include any Boxer blood, so calling them "mini-boxers" is misleading at best.

Hybreds - my favorite not only do you have to worry about health/temerment issues of one breed, but another!!!

wow, those are weird... Murphy looks like a boston terrier... I think this is a bad idea. I have heard of this before though. Someone asked me before we got Oscar if we were getting a mini boxer since boxers are so big (most places in our area want dogs that are smaller). I was like "WHAAAAAT???" so I went home and researched it, but what I could find were mostly boxers crossed with english bulldogs or something, and that classified them (at least in google) as 'mini boxers'.

I personally hate the idea, and think there'll probably be some problems with this type of breeding.

And this comment worries me "We work mostly with 3 local small-time breeders to produce these dogs"... Yikes!

Murphy looks more like a boston terrier than anything.

we get asked allll the time if Kaci is a mini-boxer, we just have to laugh, say there is no such thing and explain to them that she's full blood boxer, just tiny.

thanks for the heads up. *I am so tired of the whole "designer" dog thing. *People need to stop playing "dog god" like this guy is doing. *Using two breeds that aren't even boxers to create a "mini boxer". *I think it's absolutely disgusting. *eww.
