First off welcome to the forum! I hope you can post some pics of your little guy!

Three months is still very young. As I discovered boxers mature late so this means they take a bit longer than most breeds to become adult like! Most boxers do not become potty trained until around 6 months of age. Some quicker some slower! You still should get in a habit of taking him out every 45 min. or so and keep praising him when he goes outside. I think it
Very good suggestions  :) I really can't add much to what Derrick said..Boxers are slow growers and they do play rough, as puppies, other dogs may or may not understand that, so it's up to you to know when to intervene...Watch the body language, learn your Boxer and how he acts...There is a great Sticky topic in the General forum about body language that you may find helpful...And don't think vocal is a bad thing or that it's aggressive, these guys are "talkers' as well.... :)
3 months is not that old so I think I would expect a little whining when lonely.  When you say he does not play well, I assume he is very very hyper towards the other dogs possibly?
Sorry I think I may of misworded something booker is and 1 and half... but we have only had him 3 months....
