|That could be possible then, MO has a bad rap when it comes to back yard breeders (and the area we live in is prime dumping grounds because we live close to the animal shelter). I did post that back photo in case someone could tell what he was from that angle, though I would have no clue! I was interested in Tollers in the past, but never really studied them. Now that I am reading about them, it does resemble him quite a bit! The neighbors said he likes to swim, but one thing that sets him apart from Tollers is he apparently does not retrieve. He likes playing with toys and balls, but he would not run after them, the boy said he just doesn't chase them (now, I don't know if they have tried playing fetch with him much, but it sounds with Tollers that should be a natural trait). I will try something to test that later though, if he will chase when other dogs are not around. Echo loves to chase balls, but will not do it when Twister is around because she knows he runs faster. So I am wondering if he is used to the Boxers always getting the ball so became like Echo 'eh, it's not worth it, I never get the ball first' kinda thing. His ears seem quite a bit different too, so definitely would still be a mix. Thanks for the insight! If anyone else has any ideas, keep them coming!
Eta: Sita, thank you. I will probably make a grooming appointment for him, I am sure they will be able to get it all out. I may still try washing him beforehand so he isn't bringing live fleas into the place. We do have Oatmeal shampoo since Twister has sensitive skin.
