Question Boxer, Bullboxer, Bullmastiff or Boerboerl

About a year ago a friend gave me a nice loving dog who was around 9months old at that time. I was told he is a fawn boxer and there are many dogs around exactly like him and are said to be fawn boxers. However after some research I found out that my dog is no boxer at all. There's nothing to be disapointed about since I love him a lot. However it is unfair that the people who sell these dogs claim they are boxers. After having done much research on the above 4 breeds, my conclusion is that my Rock is a Bullboxer . I have attached pictures of him and would like to have your point of view on his breed, even if it may not be a purebreed.

I'll have to do some research on Bull Boxers, never heard of them before.. But if he's a mix? I see APBT/Amstaff in the eyes and ears, maybe some boxer in the snout and the set of his eyes. No Boxer or APBT structure, though.. so if you guys think he's a Bull Boxer, I bet you're right!

He DEFINITELY is not a Boxer, and if he's a Bullmastiff his breeder wasn't very talented. Off to do some research on Bull Boxers now..

He doesn't look like a full Boxer to me and he definitely doesn't look like a Bull Mastiff. It's so hard to tell what the exact mix is. We found a stray Boxer mix that could be a Bull Boxer. Here is what she looks like.

No, not a Boxer, but a real cutie though! I am seeing a combination of several dogs that are common to your area. He has the very typical undershot jaw of a Boxer/Bulldog combination. He has the depth and width in his chest, plus elbowing out slightly, as a Bulldog would. Yet he has the the body, angulation in hip and hock of a Boerboel. Could be more than just 2 breeds in this pet. A mix and a purebred, two mixed breeds, you never know. Certainly not fair someone is trying to sell them as purebreds but looks like you ended up with a happy, healthy companion.

I suspect that if the dog was purebred, the seller would have been clear on that point. I looked at the link above, it seems to indicate that a 'bullboxer' is a mixed breed (pitbull/boxer)?
