First find a puppy training class. You can both socialize and learn basic commands together. There are also some excellent printed training guides, I like Barrons. Their books are breed specific and have detailed info for raising a bully or bully mix from puppyhood to old age. They have command learning and troubleshooting with photos.
Mouthy is a normal behavior in puppies of all breeds and hyper excitement is common in terriers. Your job is to teach the puppy that mouthing people is not acceptable at all-bite inhibition. The dog also has to learn-" Okay I am way way WAY excited here but now I have to bring it down several notches". There are many training techniques to change this behavior. You'll do fine.
Good idea now is to get into a good puppy training class, get some books too or look up internet reading, get a collection of toys-sturdy chew toys...a boxer/bully mix is going to be one happy chewer, and get in the habit now of at least a half hour, an hour or more as puppy grows, of daily exercise-walking/running/hiking/chasing a ball or stick. It's great bonding time and healthy for both of you.
