Default Is my puppy a Boxer mix?

This is my first post on this forum, but I thought it would be a good idea to get some more opinions about my little dog. I recently was given a puppy, named Remmy, from a good friend of mine. She said she'd gotten it from another friend and she was told it was Boxer Terrier. We didn't' know what kind of terrier, so I did a little research and from pictures kind of figured she was maybe Boxer/Rat Terrier. I've been considering getting a dog DNA test done to figure this out. I don't' know exactly how old she is, but I know she's only a few months old. I was just wondering what you all thought and if she is Boxer, what kind of behavioral things should I look out for and are any tips for training her? I've never owned a boxer, but I've had a few friends that have had them, but I still don't know that much. Also, if you know anything about Rat Terriers or whatever else she might be it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

She is 100% mixed I can see it being a Rat Terrier. Boxers ears dont naturally stand and she has a pointed nose. She sure is cute though

So cute do her ears always stand up like that?

Not always, but they never lye back like a Boxer's. If she's in trouble, scared, or sleeping they go back pretty far.

Yeah, That's what I thought too. I'll just have to do one of those DNA tests to find out for sure what she is. Thanks though!

After seeing pictures I agree. That's gotta be what she is. I don't know why I didn't consider that before, but now that I see it, it's obvious! Thanks!
