    No one has questioned this and everyone that meets her says she is clearly a boxer. I got her from some people that could no longer keep her. They got her from their neighbors who owned the dad. The mom lived a few houses down. They told me they were both boxers and very big. Dixie seems so small but from what I am learning, boxers are a medium sized breed. To be honest I did not know much about the breed when I took her otherwise her coloring and longer nose would have stood out to me. So what do u guys think? I'm assuming she was just poorly bred. But id like opinions from the experts as I am not. Pics are in my gallery.

    She looks boxer to me! But you are right, her longer nose indicates she isn't from a line of show dogs....sounds like she came from one of those 'oh you have a male, I have a female, lets breed them and you can have one of the puppies' type of arrangements.

    I wouldn't be surprised if she's not pure. You can do a DNA test for $80 if your really curious. My neighbor did it and it was really cool to see.
    She's adorable either way.

    She does have a long nose, but she also has the nice black mask that boxers are supposed to have (most often when mixed with other breeds they lose that mask). My guess would be purebred, just not well bred :) But beautiful regardless!
