Sorry - what erwins said. I thought that the Boxer part was instead of the cattle dog part.

So this proves that the Boutros isn't just a "mixed breed" dog, but a "multiple mixed breed" dog, and that even if it was by accident, that the result is a new dog breed of extremely high intelligence, friendly and serene temperament, moderate energy, good with children and other dogs, highly loyal and protective of family when necessary. Most importantly, for a friendly dog, he doesn't jump and he doesn't bark incessantly - and maybe that isn't all environment.

Would the AKC recognize a new breed based upon the cloning of this exemplary specimen?

Just to clarify, the name came after we adopted the dog. I chose him based on his temperament. He has always been a very sweet calm dog, even in the pound. And I had wanted a big goofy dog for awhile. BBD is, therefore, totally made of win.
