Bulloxer

There is little historical information available for the bulloxer. This dog is a cross between the boxer and the American bulldog. It does not matter which parent is which breed for the litter to be considered bulloxers. The designer dog is recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club, the Designer Dogs Kennel Club, the Dog Registry of America, Inc., the International Designer Canine Registry, and the Designer Breed Registry.

The bulloxer is a well-muscled, strong breed with wide chests, blocky heads and short muzzles. The bulloxer is a fantastic athlete. Both boxers and American bulldogs have a tendency to gain weight. Bulloxers need a proper diet and plenty of exercise in order to maintain an athletic appearance. A well-built bulloxer will have a wide chest, a tucked stomach and well-defined muscles. Personality: The typical bulloxer is a friendly, happy dog. Both American bulldogs and boxers are loyal family pets. Like with any mixed breed, you get a combination of traits. American bulldogs and boxers have very similar personalities. Both breeds are excellent guard dogs, good with children and fabulous athletes. The bulloxer is happiest when given a job to do. A bored bulloxer can quickly become ill-behaved and destructive. If you want your dog to be a friendly, pleasant member of the family, it must be given a good deal of exercise. Training is a must with these dogs as they can be quite strong as adults.

Coat Type
Dense

The bulloxer requires minimal grooming. The dog has a short, tight coat that needs weekly brushing. A rubber brush or curry comb is all that is needed to maintain the coat. Dogs that have overly-wrinkled faces will need the wrinkles wiped out daily to avoid skin irritations.

The floppy ears of the breed can make it prone to ear infections.

Care should be taken to not let water sit in the ears, and the ear canals should be cleaned once a month. Toenails should be trimmed about every six weeks so that the quicks do not grow too long.
