Default Little guy

Im in need of some input for my little guy Ozkar, I recently rescued this little boxer pup that was left abandoned by some renters and left him locked up in the apartment when they left...
I’ve taken Ozkar to the vet and had a full workup on him and the vet thinks he is approximately 6 months old but he only weighs 20.2 pounds and he’s still intact (for now) and he’s so sweet and smart but I’m concerned about his size...
Can anyone tell me if there’s a mini boxer breed???? If not why is he so little?

I am glad you rescued this lil guy. No there is no official mini boxer breed. Though I have heard some referred to as such. He may be a mix and probably wasn't well cared for with proper nutrition, perhaps his parents weren't either. At 6 months he still has some major growing to do and boxers will out over 2 years. My guy gained another 20 lbs after 12 months. though I think he could lose a few right now. If you can keep him controlled you may want to check into the benefits of neutering him later 12-18 months. Good luck

Could be a boxer mix. Could be lack of nutrition at critical growing phases. Can't really tell from the pic.

Welcome, and congrats for saving this little guy!

The little boxers are sometimes referred to as pocket boxers. I agree with Matt and Linda that they are likely a mix.
There are a few different threads on here about puppies and weight. If you go to the home tab, on the upper right of that page there's an advanced search option. You can put in a key word and to search by thread title.
You should find more data that may help you.

Some of it is their line. We have two boxers from the same parents and another boxer from totally different lines. The two brothers are more broad and a bit taller than our other boxer and their faces are little different.
