How to know if a Boxer is purebred? (2023)

Strangers at the dog park, veterinarians, or trainers sometimes tell owners that their Boxers "don't look like purebreds" or "are not complete Boxers."

While you can't rely on appearance alone, you can usually tell whether a Boxer is a purebred or a mix by examining the dog's characteristics and seeing how well they match the breed standard.

Sometimes the characteristics of a Boxer can differ from the classic Boxer look, not because it is a Boxer cross, but because it has been "regularly bred" or comes from a lineage unknown to the person taking the test.

If you got your adult Boxer from a shelter or from a breeder that wasn't registered and didn't give you any papers, your best bet might be to try a DNA test.

What Characteristics to Look for in a Boxer Dog

Boxers are highly recognizable dogs, not least because they are among the most popular breeds in the United States each year (ranked #14 by the American Kennel Club in 2020).

Why You Shouldn't Own a Boxer: 12 Breed Cons

They have distinctive qualities that set them apart from other dogs and are consistently found in Boxer after Boxer, defining the breed.

If the dog in front of you is a Boxer, you will see:

  • A deep chest that tapers to a narrow waist.
  • A lean, muscular physique that exudes athletic ability.
  • A square, “square” head
  • Nose cuts the “brachycephalic”
  • Large, dark eyes with an alert, intelligent, kind expression.
  • Short, tight coat, fawn or brindle, with or without white markings
  • A height that puts them at the top of the scale for technically "medium" sized dogs.
  • A friendly and inquisitive attitude with a fun approach to life and a definite sense of humor... combined with a fearlessness when challenged.

What It Might Mean If Your Boxer Doesn't "Look Thoroughbred"

If your Boxer doesn't look as expected, possibilities include:

  • Your Boxer is purebred but has "poor conformation" - i.e. he is not bred to standard and does not represent classic Boxer characteristics
  • Your Boxer is purebred and well bred, but not a "show quality" specimen.
  • it's a boxing cross
  • Are you noticing the difference between European or British and American bloodlines, e.g. American Boxers tend to be leaner and more graceful with longer noses, while German Boxers are more stocky with shorter snouts.

  • You might be looking at a photo of the dog that distorts its features or colors.
  • It's a development phase and your Boxer will grow in its features.

  • How your dog's care has influenced its physical condition, e.g. Neutering or spaying a Boxer under two years of age makes dogs taller by interfering with the closure of the bony plates, abnormally prolonging the growth phase. Spayed/neutered dogs are also more likely to be overweight

  • Your dog sports one of the less common but still acceptable coat color variations within the Boxer breed standard.

  • Your Boxer has natural ears and a long tail, which may not seem "right" to those who are used to seeing their Boxers with their ears surgically cropped and tails docked, as is the norm in the US, but illegal for animal cruelty reasons in many from the rest of the world, including the homeland of the German boxer

Signs that a Boxer dog may not be purebred

There are many "safe ways" to supposedly tell if a Boxer is purebred.

Some people have the idea that the roof of a purebred Boxer's mouth will always be pink, not black.

Others insist that the small lower front teeth will always be crooked in a true boxer.

The most reliable indicators that may suggest that your Boxer is not a purebred include:

  • Absence of black mask on the muzzle.
  • "Very long" nose, i.e. no "squashed" face (although American boxers have longer snouts than European bloodlines)
  • The muzzle angle is too high or too low
  • Head shape without "box"
  • Lacks Boxer temperament (character is as distinct a Boxer trait as appearance)

What is the boxer's temperament?

Signs of an "ill-mannered" boxer

Your Boxer can be 100% genetically pure but have one or more "flaws" as a result of being "poorly bred" by a non-professional breeder.

Flaws in boxers include:

  • A tongue that protrudes from the mouth when at rest, i.e. not just when panting
  • An overly pronounced bite or lack of bite
  • Teeth visible when mouth is closed
  • Blue eyes or brown eyes but “very light”
  • Incorrect head placement, i.e. "flying" ears instead of ears that sit in perfect triangles against the side of the head
  • Too much forehead wrinkle ("wet") or too little (wrinkles should appear when ears are erect)

Technical failures don't always mean the puppy came from an irresponsible breeder.

It could simply mean that this particular dog is not "show quality", i.e. it does not represent the breed at its best and should not be bred.

These boxers probably still have the personality of the winning boxer, although bad breeding can extend to temper.

These dogs may lack stability and are more likely to develop behavior problems.

Proper reproduction does not begin or end with genetics.


  • maternal nutrition
  • Wean the litter to a fresh, natural raw diet
  • Special attention to the initial development and socialization of puppies in the first weeks of life.

…everything that prepares dogs to reach their full potential as Boxers.

DNA Testing: How to Tell if a Boxer Is Purebred

DNA testing is available for owners who are wondering about their dog's lineage.

(Video) BOXER! 5 Reasons you SHOULD NOT GET A Boxer Puppy!

It can also indicate whether a dog may have an increased chance of developing some of the illnesses seen in boxers.

What diseases are boxers prone to?

In partnership with Cornell University's School of Veterinary Medicine, Embark calls itself "the world's most accurate DNA test."

How to know if a Boxer is purebred? (1)

Embark's Health + Race Kitdetects more than 200 genetic diseases, as well as race and ancestry.

You'll also get a "wolf score" for your dog and a family tree, allowing you to potentially connect with your Boxer's relatives.

No blood work or vet visit required, just a swab you can do at home and send off.

Results are usually available in two to four weeks.

Please note that while a DNA test may satisfy your curiosity, it is not a substitute for documents provided by a registered breeder.

Without this documentation, a dog has no traceable lineage and will never officially be considered a purebred.

Commercially available DNA testing is also not a substitute for proper health screenings that are performed as part of any reputable Boxer breeding program, as described in the next section of this article.

Does it matter if your boxer is purebred or not?

It's tempting to think that it doesn't matter if a boxer is purebred or not.

After all, most of us don't want to show our dogs or breed them.

On one level, a boxer's purebred statusesirrelevant: once brought home, the dog is a member of the family and will be loved regardless of its pedigree or lack thereof.

However, education is very important when it comes to health.

It's not so much about the dog's appearance and whether its nose is too long or too short to please a ring judge.

More worrisome are the bad breeding practices that tend to accompany boxers of uncertain lineage.

The value of getting your Boxer from a breeder who is not only registered but reputable is that this person has likely devoted his entire life to breeding, gaining valuable experience and specialist knowledge.

And if this breeder is truly ethical, the focus will have been just as much, if not more, on breeding long-lived, vitally healthy dogs, as well as good-looking dogs.

Breeder registration introduces a greater degree of liability and increases the likelihood that every effort has been made not to breed dogs that carry hereditary disease genes.

Rigorous testing and careful selection of breeders and breeders help to mitigate the health risks created by the reduced genetic diversity that necessarily occurs in purebred dogs.

Purebred dogs, unlike mongrels, are produced by repeatedly breeding the same relatively small number of dogs (inbreeding) to provide uniform, desirable traits.

A reputable breeder will have run a battery of tests on your Boxer's parents and several previous generations to ensure that dogs with hip and elbow dysplasia, various heart abnormalities, and genes for degenerative myelopathy are excluded from breeding programs.

This is what the expression "breeding" means.

As Kaco Boxers told, “Articles are not just for those interested in showcasing or creating. They are so much more than that. They help protect the breed we all love."

A poorly bred but purebred Boxer is more likely to end up with one of the diseases the breed is prone to, as a result of the breeder not bothering to perform a health check.

Boxer Health Check

A Boxer cross is usually the result of random matings, but it at least benefits from what is known as "hybrid vigor".

Hybrid vigor refers to the protective effect of the increased genetic diversity created when dogs of different breeds are mated.

How to Be Sure to Get a Purebred Boxer Puppy

The best way to ensure that you get not just a purebred Boxer, but one that is as healthy as possible, is to do your research and find a reputable, ethical registered breeder.

This type of breeder will provide you with documents detailing your puppy's pedigree that goes back at least five generations, naming the specific dogs your puppy is descended from.

These documents will allow you to register your dog as a purebred Boxer.

Remember that a "limited registration" just means you don't have the right to breed your dog, something many breeders stipulate to maintain control of their bloodlines and prevent "backyard" breeding by illegal owners.

Without documents, a Boxer can be purebred, but will always be considered officially mixed, in the sense that the dog's offspring will not be able to register as a purebred Boxer.

After choosing a breeder, the next challenge is choosing the right pup from the litter.

5 Steps to Choosing the Right Boxer Puppy

The presence of a pronounced "clever bump" or "egg head" in a young Boxer puppy is believed to lead to better head shape in the adult dog.

"Other" types of boxers

There are a variety of Boxers that look a little different from the standard fawn or brindle specimen.

The extensive Boxer family includes dogs that are still purebred Boxers such as:

  • White Boxers (they do not meet the US breed standard which requires no more than one-third of the body to be white, but these dogs are 100% Boxer)

Are white boxers less healthy?

  • Bobtail Boxers (produced by crossing Boxers with Corgis to introduce the gene for a naturally short tail)

  • "Black" briefs (actually just very dark "reverse" or "seal" tabby

It also includes some dogs that are firmly in the Boxer crossbreed category, such as:

  • "Mini Boxers" (produced by crossing Boxers with a smaller breed, often a Boston Terrier)

And then there is:

  • Longhaired Boxers (We're as intrigued as you are by these luxurious anomalies. Their owners say DNA tests show they're 100% Boxer, but they can also arise from crossbreeding.)

Reasons sometimes confused with boxers

Sometimes a boxer "doesn't look purebred" is due to observer error.

Breeds that are sometimes confused with Boxers by those not familiar with Boxers or other breeds include many of the "bully" breeds such as:

  • bull arabs
  • american bulldogs
  • pit bulls
  • terrieres de boston


If something doesn't feel right with a Boxer and you don't have papers, you might start to wonder if your dog is a purebred.

Often a fairly reliable conclusion can be reached by comparing the dog's characteristics to the breed standard, but a DNA test is the closest thing to certainty.

Anyway, there are many things worse than not being a purebred, and a Boxer cross may well be healthier than a bratty purebred Boxer.
