Boxane Characteristics

The Boxane is a hybrid mix between the Great Dane and the Boxer breeds.

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.
