Hi! Welcome. What a cute puppy! In the first photo, I definitely see a boxer puppy, and in the second, it looks like as if the boxer isn't a purebred.. I may be wrong. Perhaps the angle is not good and the photo is not clear. Anyway, I recommend that you go to a veterinarian or dog handler who will accurately confirm the breed of the dog.

Looks boxer like to me are you being thrown off because of the tail? You can check the puppies genetics with a kit that will tell you what breed is in him I don't think they are very expensive and its a cheek swab I think. He is very cute.

Hi! Probably it’s because of the tail. She turned 2 mo yesterday. Till when can we dock the tail of the little one? Thankyou for your recommendation.

She is a cutie and looks boxer to me. Maybe not from a reputable breeder but cute none the less. You can no longer dock the tail, she is too old already, it would be a painful major surgery. Lots of boxers, especially the Euro's have tails as many find it cruel to dock tails and it is unlawful in some countries. Personally I like the docked tail look but it must be done when the puppy is 2-3 DAYS old.

Its way too late to dock the tail so she is just going to have to be a cute boxer with a tail! Just enjoy her she looks like she is very smart.
