I attached 2 pics one at like 8 weeks the other at 10 weeks. I can get more recent ones if necessary alright I have heard that there is no such thing as a mini boxer. What do you think? How big are we looking at? I know for a fact the mother was a type of terrier but i was told the father was mini boxer. His paws are HUGE he eats way more than any small dog I have ever seen About 7-8 cups puppy chow a day and drinks tons We have big water dishes and he drinks more than the other two dogs and cat combined. Vet said let him eat as much as he wants for now. He is now 17 weeks and 11lbs. He is my third dog still have them all so I know most things. Like cost, training and all that but new to the boxer though. I know this women was a BYB he had parasites, round worm, tape worm and fleas when I got him. She was going to dump them on the street! So my mom took one and I took one. Her female weighs about the same and eats the same amount. The breeder took him and his siblings away from his mother at 4 and a half weeks Because she says the mother was suffering from being big from milk and the babies were hurting her! I know that is bull! I got him at 5 and a half weeks and she was feeding him raw eggs and adult dog food. Gave him shots from feed store at 4 weeks. Vet wasn't happy cost me 100s and had to do shots all over again But do you think he has any boxer at all in him? Like I said before his paws are huge Twice the size of my rat terrier cocker spaniel mix and bigger than my affenpinsher I love him no matter what but am worried about temperament and further problems! What should I look for?

There is no such thing as a purebred "mini boxer".

The truth is... these so called "mini boxers" that people are trying to breed and pass off as something special, usually don't even have boxer in them. They are usually a mix between Pugs or Boston mixed with Fox terriers.

Cute as a button but not a boxer. What did this person do? Just cut the pointy ends off the ears with scissors. ? If she did I would report her.

The ears look floppy to me, doesn't look like they have been cut at all. As far has being a mini boxer? No such thing. Usually some terrier type such as a rat, jack, fox....mixed with bostons or pugs.

Looks like there's some Beagle & Terrier in that baby to me, sure is a cutie - glad you & your mom have them out of that situation for sure. I agree with Rolemala on the ears but hard to tell in the pictures...for sure report that monster for doing it though and admitting it openly to you like that.
