Boxerman Pinscher

The Boxerman is a large dog that was bred from a Boxer and a Doberman Pinscher. This breed is very social and friendly but can also be a great guard dog due to their bravery and loyalty. At about 60 pounds and 24 inches high on average, the Boxerman makes a pretty intimidating guard. However, the Boxerman is a gentle dog that is excellent with other pets and children (with supervision) and likes to play as well as work. Their coat is short and fine and can come in just about any color but is usually brown and white; black and white; or black and brown. Their fur is not weatherproof so they should not be left outside in extreme temperatures.

Boxerman Breed History

The Boxer originated in Germany in the 1800s as a guard dog but was used as a fighting dog and bull baiter before those activities were outlawed. Many believe that this breed is from a line of European dogs that were used in dog fights in Tibet. Others believe that is a relative of the Bulldog and the Tibetan Mastiff and that all European dogs have some relation to the Boxer. Their relatives were also used for stag and boar hunting during the 16th and 17th centuries. The Boxer is a strong and fearless dog and was the first breed to be used as a police dog. They were registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1904 and is the 10th most popular dog in America. Another guard dog, the Doberman Pinscher has been around since the 1800s and originated in Germany. They were named after Louis Dobermann of Thuringen, Germany who developed this breed to guard him on his door to door job of tax collecting. This is one breed that was so popular that they were already registered with the AKC when they crossed the Atlantic Ocean into America in 1908. They are now the 15th most common dog in America. It is thought that the Doberman Pinscher is a product of Manchester Terriers, Greyhounds, Great Danes, and Rottweilers although some say there is also some German Shepherd, Weimaraner, and Schnauzer in the breed as well. During World War II, the breed got the nickname Devil Dog because they were used to flush out the enemy. Your Boxerman should have a mix of these wonderful characteristics in both of these breeds.

Boxerman Breed Appearance

The Boxerman is a large dog with a strong body and long, muscular legs. They tend to have a square head with a long muzzle, short coat, floppy triangular ears, and a wise expression. This breed has large feet and a long tail that is usually wagging unless they are on guard. Their features look more like a Doberman Pinscher but have the stockiness of the Boxer. They are usually about 21 to 25 inches tall and between 50 and 70 pounds. This smart canine can be any color but you will usually see them in brown and white; black and white; or black and brown.

Boxerman Breed Maintenance

Since the Boxerman has short hair, their grooming needs are minimal. You can brush them with a soft or hard bristle brush or slicker one or two times a week and bathe when absolutely necessary. However, do not shampoo too often because it washes away the important oils that are needed for healthy skin and hair. Brushing is also important to keep shedding to a minimum, which can be quite heavy during the summer season. Their nails need to be trimmed regularly and you should brush their teeth several times a week to prevent dental disease. Clean their ears once a week and watch for any redness or irritation.

Boxerman Temperament

This breed is exceptionally intelligent and can be trained easily, although they may be stubborn so you have to be consistent. Positive reinforcement rather than discipline is recommended just as with all dogs. They are known for their alertness and loyalty and make great family pets as well as guard dogs. Although both parent breeds were bred as fighters, they have no aggressive tendencies. The Boxerman likes to play with children and other pets but, just like with other dogs, they should not be left alone with small children. They love to run and seem to have a bit of a humorous side to them like the Boxer.

Boxerman Activity Requirements

Although the Boxerman likes to run and play, they are just as happy to lay around and hang out with you. They do enjoy a long walk or jog or a lengthy game of fetch but they do not like to be outdoors long when it is extremely hot or cold due to their short coat. Having a fenced-in yard so they can run around during the day when it is nice out is a bonus because they can get their pent-up energy out while you sit back and relax. Visits to the dog park or the beach are also great ideas for your Boxerman.

To family and other "Pack" members she is very friendly. To people she does not know she is apprehensive at first but when she understands there is no threat she is friendly but not overly so. She feels she has one job to do and that is protect me and other family and pack members. She is always scanning looking for potential threats but not in an aggressive manner. She just needs to keep an eye on everything just to make sure! She is an athlete like I have never seen before. Coordinated and agile with strength and stamina like no other dog I have been fortunate to have. She has the intellect to figure things out easily and train quickly and the obedience to follow commands. She is not stubborn and aims to please. Her only issue right now is that she does not like other dogs much and see's them as a threat. She is getting better about it and this may be a result of learned bad habits from another dog that we had. She is the the most cuddly dog we have ever had always needing to touch you and you to touch her. That can be annoying when you need to do things but rewarding when you are relaxing because she will be right there face to face with you showing you nothing but love. She is a big sweetheart love bug. We get complements and questions from people all the time asking what she is. If I was a wealthy person I would buy the best breed Boxers and Dobermans and start breeding this dog out to be an accepted and recognized AKC breed. The most interesting and amusing dog I have ever had.

He is very friendly, easily trainable - when he wants. He loves all other animals, children & adults. His personality is a cross between Pluto & Goofy. But that’s just his gimmick. He’s very intelligent-when he wants- and can problem solve. He’s gentle, wise and loving. Dhug is loyal and protective. His communication skills are impressive. Great family dog. He does have a tendency to be a little high strung. When he has an idea, he won’t settle until his goal has been accomplished.

My Boxerman, Indy, is very loving and smart. He has been easy to train and catches on to things very quickly. He can be stubborn at times, but loves to show affection. He can be completely content hanging out and cuddling, but loves running around and going on walks and hikes.
