Is she a boxer pitt mix?

I just adopted a 3 month old female "supposed" boxer puppy. when i got her, i knew immediately that she was not full boxer.... but everyone that has seen her has said boxer pitt mix. she has VERY long legs, & definitely has the boxer stance... at 3 months, she is VERY smart & SUPER affectionate. all she wants to do is give kisses & she loves nothing more than to be carried every day, or curled upon my chest. she tends to lean into me a lot (its actually cute), & i read that boxers do this?

look at the pics... any opinions are appreciated :) thanks!

My guess is Boxer)/German Shepherd actually. Most people cannot correctly identify a Pit Bull to save their lives because there are 25 different breeds that look quite a bit like Pit Bulls.
But, it is a possibility that your puppy has Pit Bull in it. Very lovely dog.

I think your puppy looks like a mini-Zack. And although I don't know for sure what breeds Zack is, most people guess Boxer x German Shepherd Dog or Australian Cattle Dog. I think Zack might have some Lab in him too.

Your puppy is very cute though!

She looks like our baby- Miley is a boxer mix- (she's a year on Mar 22nd) they're not sure of what, some people say Shep, some say pit, some even say Ridgeback..who knows??? She's a great dog. Good luck with your little one. We plan on doing a blood DNA, I'll keep you posted as what the results are :)

I have the exact same dog. We rescued her back in December, after someone tossed her(underfed and malnourished)over a friend's fence. 5 months later, she's a happy healthy 61 lbs bundle of joy. Regarding the breed, everyone keeps telling me pitt, but, I disagree. The body is definitely boxer. I owned several of the aforementioned, and her build and temperament are dead on. Her jaw, however, isn't very menacing. If she really bites me while playing, it might hurt a bit, yet she doesn't possess that ability to tear someone up. Boxers are known to have a dental deformation that causes some of their teeth to be nubby like a pebbles. Hers, however, don't match that trait either.

See if your dog has webbed feet. Mine does. If so, she's probably a boxer/lab mix. I've owned both breeds, and this one reminds me of each, ie lab snout+webbed feet coupled with a boxer frame and overly playful attitude. Bing or Google the word Boxador in their image section. It seems to be a popular breed.
