Boxane History

The Boxane is a Chinese toy and miniature Spitz-type of a dog. The history of the Boxan, also known as the Shiba Inu, dates back to the 13th century, when the Chuko, or Japanese black bear, was introduced to Japan from China. The Chuko became extinct in 1932, but the Japanese Kennel Club officially recognized the “Boxer”, a now-extinct hybrid of a Japanese spitz and a chihuahua, in 1936. The first “Boxer” was shown in 1937, and in 1946 the “Shiba Inu”, a now-extinct Japanese spitz, was recognized.

Boxane Temperament and Behaviour

Boxane Activity Requirements

Boxanes are a fairly new hybrid that is a mix of the Boxer and the Boston Terrier. They are loving and loyal companions that are also playful and energetic. While they can live in an apartment, Boxanes do best in a home with a yard. They love to play and run around, so they do best in a home with a fenced-in yard where they can get out and stretch their legs. A daily walk is also a good way to make sure your Boxane stays healthy. If you are looking for a dog that doesn’t need much activity, a Boxane may not be the right choice for you. They do enjoy walks and playtime, and they do need regular exercise, but they don’t need high energy levels.
