Boxador - Information on the Dog Breed, Puppies, Breeders, Size and Temperament

The Boxador can be defined as a crossbreed between a Labrador retriever and a Boxer.

Both of these are purebreds.  Labradors and boxers are both known for their playful lively demeanor and their fierce loyalty. The Labrador is known for its pleasant personality, for its hunting and retrieving skills. It does not have any aggressive tendencies and takes delight in the company of children. The Boxer is wary of strangers and is most comfortable with its own family. Thus when one crossbreeds a Boxer and a Labrador, you get the perfect family pet.

The Boxador is easy to train, can get along with small children and is great with families. They are found to be loyal, non aggressive and loving in nature. The Boxador is energetic but is not uncontrollable. Hence it makes an ideal companion for a human. Boxador puppies are born with coarse and short hair.

They do not shed too much and can live for about 13 years.

Boxador Puppies, Breeders, Size and Temperament

The Boxador temperament is easy going. Before you consider getting yourself a Boxador you should be aware of some basic Boxador information.
