In Victorian England, Pit Bulldogs were said to have been "nanny dogs" because they were thought to have done just that: watch over very young children. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) claims that Pit Bull breeds are not naturally aggressive. The group states that so many have been bred to fight while so many more have been abused and abandoned that the widespread, unregulated breeding of the many hybrids — coupled with the stories of dog attacks — have contributed primarily to the current stigma. The Journal of Forensic Science tends to corroborate PETA's claims, basically stating in a 2009 study that vicious and criminal dog owners are to blame for these problems. The American Society to Prevent Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) flatly states that "Pit Bulls often attract the worst kind of dog owners."
Regardless what you believe or which side you take, there's no denying that the Bullboxer Pit is an extremely intelligent dog. Some say that this dog's superior smarts are what prompts the seemingly unwarranted attacks, as the dog is simply waiting to get rid of the household's alpha. Others claim that the dog's remarkable thinking is manipulated to exploit his equally deep loyalty to make him into a vicious dog instead of allowing him to be the loving companion he's meant to be.
This dog's devotion to his adopted family and their property and well-being is not to be disputed. The vast majority of these dogs are believed to be playful, loving and protective. This devotion, however, can sometimes be to a fault — and if the dog is not properly trained, constantly socialized and managed well, he may be prompted to attack if he feels those to whom he is devoted are threatened. In the case of an attack, there is rarely a warning, for while these dogs make good watch- and guard dogs, they tend to attack without barking.
Part of keeping these dogs in check is exercise — lots of daily exercise. They can easily and quickly become obese and bored if neglected, and this will result in a bad situation. How bad? The obesity will most likely lead to hip dysplasia and other health problems while the boredom will almost certainly lead to bad and even dangerous behavior. It's all but mandatory that you get as much Pitbull Boxer mix info as possible before even considering getting one of these dogs, as there is a lot of responsibility in living with Bullboxer Pits.
