Five Things You Should Know Before Adopting a Boxer Great Dane Mix


Boxers and Great Danes are both very grand dogs – both literally and figuratively. These are not tiny, small dogs by any means; in fact, they are actually some of the biggest dogs you can have! While they are great on their own, they have been known to be bred into a Boxer Great Dane mix, best known as the Boxane. Boxanes, just like their parents, are great dogs that are tall and have a strong build. They often have brown eyes and a short coat, but are packed with personality. They live to be about 15 years old, which is great when you own the dog and want to spend a number of years loving it and spending some quality time and memories with them. They are a good dog to have as a pet, but of course, since they are not purebreds, you have to really pay attention and find out what their parents – Boxers and Great Danes, respectively – are like to get a gauge on how they will grow up to be.

Here are some things you should know before adopting a Boxer Great Dane dog:

1. If you have a family, you’re in luck: Boxanes make for a great family dog.

2. You don’t have to worry about annoying the neighbors (or yourselves) with incessant barking at all hours of the night, as the Boxer Great Dane mix dogs are minimal to moderate barkers.

3. Because of their big bodies, they require exercise and walks on the daily.

4.  If you’re looking for a quiet, subdued dog, this may not be for you, though – Boxanes are friendly, curious and humorous creatures.

5. These dogs shed a lot, so if that’s a concern you can either look into another breed or get to covering your furniture on a normal basis and investing on a lint remover or two!
