Boxane Characteristics

The Boxane is a hybrid mix between the Great Dane and the Boxer breeds. These dogs typically retain the best characteristics and traits from each parent, resulting in a kind, smart, energetic breed.  If you are looking for big, friendly dog who loves to be affectionate, the Boxane may be the choice for you.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Large
  • Trainability Willful

The Boxane hasn’t been around as a breed for very long, so they’ll definitely be different and vary depending on their parents. As a result, you may meet a Boxane that is 22 inches tall and 60 pounds, 34 inches tall and 140 pounds, or anywhere in between.  The Boxane is most commonly found in black, brown, or white.

Luckily, mixing the Great Dane and Boxer has resulted in a hybrid that shows far fewer health ailments compared to its parents.  Boxanes are considered relatively healthy dogs and typically live longer than the purebred Great Dane. Both the Boxer and Great Dane are breeds who love to please their people, which makes the Boxane a breeze to train, even for novice pet owners. It is advised to have someone around who is physically big enough to contain the dog, however - these dogs have a lot of energy and can easily pull someone down accidentally.

Both these breeds, but especially the Boxer, are known to have an abundance of energy. As a result, it is advised to raise them in a house with a backyard where they can run around and burn off some energy. If your Boxane is left inside and bored for too long, they're likely to act out or attempt escape.

In general, these “gentle giants” are incredible pets to lavish love onto and will return the affection with gusto.

How dog-friendly is Alabama?

Alabamans are dog-lovers! The state has high dog ownership and several pet-friendly destinations. However, it doesn’t rank well compared to other states when it comes to animal cruelty laws and protections. We hope to see some changes to that soon! 

 

Here’s what you should know about Alabama.

 

Two major studies for pet-friendliness ranked Alabama in the lower half of all 50 states. Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, ranked Alabama 43rd. Safewise, a consumer safety review site, ranked it slightly higher at 31st in the country.

 

Both studies evaluated all 50 states by several factors, including animal welfare laws, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, dog parks, and hiking trails. In both studies, the state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.

Are cities in Alabama pet-friendly?

Yes! A study by Wallethub reviewed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how Alabama’s biggest city stacked up.

Birmingham

Birmingham was ranked 5th overall of all 100 cities! This pet-friendly city scored 9th in pet budget, 15th in pet health and wellness, and 77th in outdoor pet-friendliness. We blame the heat and humidity for the last ranking, but Birmingham does have beautiful parks and outdoor space.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Alabama

BringFido lists Alabama as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,700 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels.

 

Forty-seven percent of Alabama residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%. 

 

What kinds of dogs do Alabamans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Alabama are Labradors, Basset Hounds, and Beagles. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Retrievers, and Collies. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Alabama

Alabama saved 75,761 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 16,825 animals were reported killed over this same period. 

Thirty-one out of 93 of the animal shelters within Alabama are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 74%. This is pretty far below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Again, animal protection is an area where Alabama can definitely improve.
