We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Boxapoint is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.

Boxapoints prefer to live indoors. They don't do well with extremes of hot and cold. They will become cold very quickly in cold weather because they have a very short coat.
