Our boxers live upwards of 12 years, but the overall breed average is much lower than that. Taking into account that boxers are known for heart problems and sometimes die before the age of 2... in my personal experience, I think the average lifespan for the breed is 8 years.
However, we have all of our dogs' hearts screened prior to breeding, and would therefore put the number for our dogs at 11+ years. Some live to 14, and that's about as old as you'll ever hear a boxer be.
