Boxer Whippet Mix – Named Franklin

Boxer Whippet Mix

From Winnie: Franklin looks and acts a lot like a boxer- until he stands next to a purebred boxer. He is very fine-boned with long legs and very dainty paws for a dog his size. At a year old, he weighs around 55 pounds and is not expected to get whole lot bigger. His figure is much more like that of a whippet than a boxer.

His head is an interesting mix of boxer and whippet- he has the square jaw and broad forehead of the boxer, along with an endearing underbite. His snout is much longer that a typical boxer though. He is VERY attached to his people and while he is a very high energy dog, his favorite place to be is snuggled up next to you on the couch or in bed. He loves running and he LOVES other dogs.

    Hello! Franklin is a beautiful doggie! May I ask, how did you learn he was a whippet-boxer mix? It was recently suggested to me that my boxer puppy is also part whippet, and now I’m super curious 🙂

    Hi Emma!

    We did the Wisdom Panel DNA test to determine his mix- highly recommended! He’s also got some retriever and staffordshire bull terrier. He’s adopted from a pitbull rescue so we initially thought pit-boxer, but as he grew we suspected part whippet becuse of his shape- very long and lean- none of the stockiness that one expects from a boxer or a pittie. The DNA test confirmed!

    Again- highly recommend the Wisdom Panel DNA test. It’s a little pricey but it’s really awesome to find out their mix!
