Hi everyone,

First off, I know this is a Boxer forum. That said, I just wanted to share some pictures if our little guy Spot. Boxer X Mastiff!!

Fancy Fawn X "Tiger Stripe" Brindle

With the help of our vet and lots of love and care we saved his life from a puppy mill raid. He had a pretty nasty bacterial parasite when we got him. Anyway I wanted to share a few pics of him 8 weeks(supposedly) until now 6 months.

Thanks for looking!! Please share any breed info if you have any.

Well he seems to be a little "narrow??" And I can see the Boxer in him! But we usually get Boxer/Pit's and they tend to be a bit more stout! What is he exactly and Welcome aboard in any case. :)

He is very cute what ever the mix is, thank you for saving his life puppy mills are some of the worst ways a dog can come into this world doesn't surprise me he had a bad bacterial infection I am surprised he didn't have more things wrong. He will be a handsome dog when he is done growing and you did a good thing for him!

Thanks everyone. Here is a picture of his Dad, supposed French Mastiff? Mother (Boxer) unfortunately had to be put down for a long life of neglect and pushing out litter after litter. Like I said, when we got him he was was skin and bones only 4.2 lbs. at 8 weeks. VERY SMALL for any med./lrg. breed. I think he may be true to what they say, just didnt get a good start to life, hes been playing catch up since day 1. He's now roughly 60 lbs.

Well heck if that's dad?? Then you are correct! We'll have to see what he look's like this time next year ... so stick around. :)

And yep, "thank you" for rescuing him. It sucks about his mom though. My current Boxer/Pit is a rescue also but her circumstances were not quite that dire although we are her (third are is it forth (and last home) in about a year. She is a bit of a "Dork," at times but she's no going anywhere.

Yes that appears to be a French mastiff type they usually have a more pushed in face but I can see that I am sure a puppy mill would not have a well bred dog or a correct looking dog just one that appears close enough. Have fun with your new pup and just love him and he will grow strong.
