Since your Boxapoint is a new hybrid, you have to consider the histories of the Boxer and the German Shorthaired Pointer. The Boxer has many stories about their history which include being relatives of the Tibetan Mastiff, the Bulldog, the Bullenbeisser, and some even say there are Terriers in their past. The Boxer was originally known all over Europe since the 16th century but was perfected in Germany in the past hundred years. In fact, the modern Boxer and original Boxer do not look much alike at all. They are known to have Molossus blood and are related to all Bulldogs in some way. They were used in bull baiting and dog fighting until those sports were outlawed, and then they were mainly used for hunting large game like stag and bear. Eventually, the breed was chosen for police training because of their bravery and strength. In 1904, they were accepted into the American Kennel Club (AKC) and are now one of the most popular dogs in the country. The German Shorthaired Pointer originated in the 1600s in Germany and was used in hunting as a pointer, retriever, and gundog. The German Shorthaired Pointer was mixed with a Spanish Pointer and a Hanover Hound to create a dog that had a good nose that was able to detect, track, and retrieve birds as well as other animals. However, it was a bit noisy because it had a bad habit of baying while trailing, scaring away the animals. Some say that it was crossed with a Foxhound and Hound of St. Hubert to evolve into the German Shorthaired Pointer of today.
