Awe. Best thing to do is separate them then. Leave one outside or just take them to a trainer. The gsd will need to learn how to socialize.

As for the toys haha yeah. You cant take that away.

This is exactly why they shouldn't be allowed to have toys together... play drive isn't a bad thing and can be used for your benefit but can cause trouble for sure with other dogs around. It may be also that your boy is so obsessed with the toys that it feels out of control for the boxer and she's trying to snap him out of his frenzy. And just to clarify, since apparently taking toys would be equated with taking someones child, this only means no toys when the dogs are together, not no toys period.

I tried to read your message and, maybe it is just me, but I found it very hard to follow. Maybe a little punctuation might help folks like me to better understand what you are trying to say?

Here's what I am reading, you have two dogs, both top dogs in their respective households, perhaps coddled and spoiled a bit - it happens in the best households, putting them together with resources - something they have never shared before and expecting them to share. It will not happen naturally. Not without vigilance on the part of the humans and possible bloodshed on the part of the dogs.
Dogs should work it out, but sometimes they cannot. You have to teach them. Keep them separate, establish for them a pecking order. One dog always receives it's toy first, always receives it's treat first. You or your gf are the leader, you determine which dog is Gamma, you or gf are alpha, next human is beta and then which dog is Gamma. When thedogs cannot do it, we do it. Beyond that, rotate until they can or will learn, young dogs with much older dogs always requires human intervention, same aged dogs, they just need guidance.
