~Miniature Boxers~

LSC's "REAL" Miniature Boxers

How did you make a mini boxer? What are the crossed with? I want a Boxer Boston cross is that what these are? I have heard these and SO MANY other questions, & looking online doesn't help as everyone makes up their own definition or thought process of what a mini boxer is and ultimately it comes down to its just a "Mutt"


Lets start at the beginning....

It all started with my love for animals, ALL animals, I wanted to be a veterinarian.  I studied and even spent my senior year riding with a vet and assisting with surgeries and doctoring animals. I have always loved the boxer, and I started studying genetics and how everything works, from horses and their colors and coat patterns to dogs and where they all came from.  What I noticed the most was that ALL dogs  were "Man Made" they were not a natural breed that was here on their own, no, SOMEONE MADE THEM. So taking what I had learned ( I learned so much along the way as well, and am STILL LEARNING ) Left me with an Idea  which has turned into a life long dream. To create a TRUE Pure bred Miniature boxer, that was EVERYTHING we love in the full size boxers, but smaller & HEALTHIER!


I studied different dog breed and where they originated and what dogs were used to create those breeds, I found breeds that were already closely related and had some of the same history as the Boxer. 


Our first two litters were out of small standard healthy boxer females. Roxie and Valentine.

Val was bred to a Boston terrier, and Roxie was bred to a pocket puggle.


Overtime and endless searching we found another small standard boxer, then we added a couple more, a new Boston male.


At this time we now had 75% boxer mini boxers that were breeding true! We were now crossing the lines and breeding back in the boxer blood and have 87.5% to 97% boxer mini boxers.


one thing I learned is Genetics do not split evenly after the first generation cross. That's why you can end up with perfect puppies and not so perfect puppies within one litter. Some may be pure, some 50% some 75% etc etc. One cross would turn out perfect meanwhile same exact breeds but different dogs did NOT work out at ALL! It was Trial and error over and over and OVER again. One thing that I will say. THE MINIATURE BOXER WOULD NOT BE HERE WITH OUT GOD. Without His help and guidance and HIM making the genes works and the crosses turning out, Mini boxers and Myself would not be where we are today.


More I researched the Boxer as a breed, Creating a HEALTHIER version was & IS ALWAYS  my first priority.


But I learned that Boxers use to come in the Black and Tan color, Or genetically have the Agouti gene, AT.

It was culled off as it wasn't preferred in the boxer breed when being created. Because it is a recessive gene meaning BOTH parents must carry it to produce it every now and then a standard boxer will  pop up that is Black and Tan, same with long haired boxers!


I personally LOVE the Black and Tan look and wanted it in my Mini's.


I also Noticed out of ALL the bully breeds, ONLY the Boxer doesn't come in Dilute. Or "Blue" So I have also added that gene to my lines which was fairly easy with a blue Boston.


We have lines that started with Pocket puggle, Boston, bulldog, Frenchy etc. HOWEVER we have ALWAYS bred back in the boxer blood to create a Genetically pure boxer miniature boxer.  Now MOST of our lines are either Pure bred or almost pure boxer miniature boxer. With the occasional first generation cross when we need to start a new line that's unrelated. Due to the fact that we are the only ones doing what we are doing to make the miniature boxer a recognized breed, we can't just go out and get a new stud dog when we need unrelated lines. we have to create them ourselves. 


OUR BREED STANDARD.

Is nearly the same as the standard Boxer, with a few exceptions to color and size. We also have a percentage guideline of what  dogs can be registered as Miniature Boxers.

Our dogs are currently recognized with CPR and NAPR registry.


Many ask us, are they AKC registered? The short answer is NO.

The long answer is, It use to be my goal, then I realized, that AKC does not care if the dogs are actually pure bred or not, and only if you have a club of people and have bred a huge number of these dogs to get them recognized. SO for myself, I prefer to breed for purity then numbers to get AKC recognition.
