    Years ago I got this dog magazine, and in one of the pages it appeared the most weird dog I have seen...

    It really looks like a Daschund - boxer mix. :confused:
    Boxer head and dashund body XD

    Here's a scan of the page

    Look at the short legs, it seems is an adult because it dosen't look like he/she is a puppy etheir.

    I just hope the mother was the boxer :(
    I wonder if any the dog siblings where a dashund head in a boxer body XD

    That it is just a normal boxer laying at just the right angle that he looks like he has short stubby legs. Considering he is laying next to a Daschund, you already have the thought in your mind that the Boxer must be small because the Daschund is. In fact, you can see the butt end of the Boxer sticking out in back of the Daschund showing that the boxer has a normal boxer sized body.

    It's all about Perspective.

    Generally there'd be more shared characteristics. Not just height but coat, features etc. They both look normal.

    I agree...the Boxers legs look of normal length to me.

    Could it be a dwarved(sp?) boxer? Can boxers be dwarved? I've seen a dwarved newfie before (looked like a newf with basset hound legs!), and a dwarved lab, but don't know if boxers are ever born this way or not...

    Yup, they both look normal to me. The picture was taken at a funny angle.

    He's in front of the Boxer but IMO he still looks much smaller than the Boxer. Most of the Boxers I know are under 60 pounds, they're not big dogs, more medium sized.

    And that is a standard not mini Dachshund, so that needs to be considered also.
