He definitely has some boxer in him, and probably some Pitt to. If there i sever a Pitt bull ban in your area, he can pass as a boxer.;p

I would say he's an American Staffordshire Terrier [a 'variety' of the 'pit bull'] and Boxer. :)

Best Regards! =D

His profile definitely looks like a boxer but he does have a pit bull face. He's very cute.

He looks a lot like Bianca.

We don't know for sure what breeds she is, but based on her looks and temperament, we guess her to be a boxer/pit bull mix, probably intentional, we have several irresponsible breeders here who are breeding that mix. She has physical and personality traits of both types of dogs.

If I had to guess, I would say Saint is also a boxer/pittie mix.

Pit bulls are awesome dogs, you should not be ashamed to own one. They are not the right breed for everyone, but they are excellent pets in the right situation. Just do your research and prepare yourself to be a responsible owner.

Not many people recognize Bianca as a pit bull. But those who do, often say "She looks just like my pit bull, XXXX, and that was the best dog I ever had."

Markings, ears, eyes, google Red Boston Terrer. They are known for bat ears and the model for a Gremlin? Mixed with some Pit. You have an awesome dog!

A red nose pit bull is NOT a breed. An American Pit Bull Terrier is a breed. Red nose is just a color same for blue nose, brindle, red, white, etc., it's just a color of dog.

Saint looks like an American Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer/Boston Terrier mix.

My friends boston was bred by boxer. She had four pups and they looked like yours their size varied. Her mom has a girl thats boston size she kept the boy whose boxer sized. One other girl is a middle height porker and one tall lanky gal i haven't seen since she was six or so months. They all are a tad hyper but i would bet thats what Saint is.

I would suggest paying for a genetic test, which can be done by a simple blood draw at your veterinary clinic. They run about $170 but the info you receive is invaluable. We've had our two mixed breeds tested. The test not only reveals what breed(s) your dog is (and the percentage of each breed), it also shows any possible medical predispositions. Knowing the breed(s) can also help you understand your dog's personality traits.

Boxers have deep chests , while pits have strong stocky muscular bodies. Boston terriers can either be black or chocolate. Your dog definitely has Boston due to its deep dish face and the dead giveaway the ears. Those type ears are not definitive of either the boxer or the American pit bull terrier.Tthe reddish color can come from either being a "Red pit" or from the Boston terrier Chocolate coloring. If your dog has a deep barrel chest tapering into a slim waste it is a Boxer/Boston mix. If there isn't an Obvious deep chest, i would then say Boston /Pit mix. But there is no mistaking the Boston in your dog.
