Boxer Mix? You just have to check it out!

I know this boxer has to be a mix, or somewhere in his line there was a mix up but he is an unusual looking guy, but oh so pretty!

http://search.petfinder.com/petnote/...?petid=5399751


I'd say he looks like a Boxer/Weimaraner mix. What do you guys think? Oh and he does need a great home if anyone in the area would be interested.

Sorry, just had to share since he is so pretty! Wasn't sure if this would be the right place.

Yes, I'd guess weimaraner to get colouring like that and I note the light coloured eyes too, which is typical of that breed. Certainly he has to be a mix with some breed that carries the genes for that coat colour anyway (because the boxer breed doesn't - despite the shelter's assertion that he must be purebred with a "rare" colouring ).

Pretty boy! I hope he finds a good home.

Maybe

But mixed breeds don't always look like bitzas Sometimes they take after one parent more than the other. Take a look at this dog, for example: http://www.boxerworld.com/photo/show...0/ppuser/25197 If it were not for the long hair, you'd swear that was a purebred boxer too All it got from the hairy parent was the hair LOL

What a cute dog I bet Odin wishes he had that coat in the winter.

Dusty is gorgeous, I could look at him all day. Whatever he is I think he's adorable, and a face that's expressions say it all. Too cute!
