Sparticus is a Boxer-Doodle

At a craft fair in Missouri, Sparticus, who hadn't yet been named, popped his head out of the box and came to me. He was one of 10 OOPs puppies from a Labradoodle breeding farm. Apparently the Poodle got out and mixed with a boxer. The ten puppies as evidence were being sold at a craft fair for $30 a piece. I bought one and gave one to my contractor Juan and his family.

What does a boxer doodle look like as a puppy? As a grown dog? Here is a photo I found online if a boxer doodle family, and ones I've taken. A boxer-doodle is a mix of a Boxer and standard Poodle. Now that Sparticus is several months old, I realize just how large he'll become.

With the smarts of a poodle and the muscular build of a boxer, he looks like neither, but has such a playful disposition. My two Scottie dogs had no surprise what they were in for last September. He was so small then!

As you know, I don't like dogs as they slobber and shed and poop in your house.

But this Sparticus is pretty cute, as dogs. go.
