Miniature Boxer Breed Standards
THE MINIATURE BOXER
A Miniature Boxer should strongly resemble the larger version of the breed. They should at least be 50% Boxer. 25% Boxers can be considered as breeding stock as well as long as they are being used to breed for higher percentages. They can have, up to 25% Pug, 25% Beagle, and up to 50% Boston terrier, not to exceed 50% total Pug, Beagle, Boston combined. Other breeds may also be included in the future to broaden the gene pool. The size must not exceed 20.75 " at the shoulder. Which is just under the breed standard for pure bred Boxers. The preferred size is between 20-40 lbs and 14-18" tall. The miniature version of the Boxer should have all of the positive traits of the standard Boxer such as gentle disposition, playful, family friendly, fun, outgoing, loyal, willing to please, easily trainable, and of course those big beautiful brown eyes. Careful selection of good tempered, healthy lines should be chosen to eliminate any negative health issues. Also dogs with the preferred Boxer traits should be used to keep this a calm but playful mix that not only "looks" like a Boxer but is in essence a Boxer in every sense of the word except for its size.
