Boxer German Shepherd Dog Akita Mix

From Captain Homeslice: Malcolm passed away in 2007 at age 13. He was a fantastic companion dog. In his full bloom, he was 105 lbs of pure muscle. His mother was a boxer. This is known because she came into the shelter with him and his litter mates. One can only guess at his father’s heritage. Many people hazarded he was crossed with a Mastiff or Great Dane, but his coat was much too thick. I’ve always assumed he was crossed with either a German Shepherd Dog or Akita. His tail and hips were set low like a shepherd, but his size and muzzle set were more similar to an Akita. Either way, this was a very loyal companion, wonderful with other dogs and children, loved to play like a Boxer and displayed excellent judgment of character upon meeting strangers (another Shepherd quality). He had a deep barrel chest like a boxer, rarely barked, was remarkably easy to train and was the very definition of “mellow.” Great, great dog.

    I have a dog that looks exactly as Malcolm, but his fur colour is more of a german shephard. I don’t know exactly what he is, I was told Boxer/German Shepherd and I didn’t really believe it until now..
