Boxer Dog Breed Essential Info And Facts

Jun 14, 2008
If you plan on getting a boxer for a pet, then you should know that the American Kennel Club ranks the canine at number seven for the most popular dogs in the United States. If you are sure that having a boxer is the way to go, then keep in mind a few things.

When you are ready to buy your new family addition, make sure you buy from a professional reputable breeder. If not, check out the pet stores for your new family member. However, be sure you find out if your pet store uses reputable breeders to purchase their animals. Pet stores are known to deal with unidentified breeders. By checking out the pet store and who they deal with, you'll know if you are getting an authentic boxer puppy/dog.

If you deal with a reputable dealer to purchase your puppy/dog, you can be certain that the one dealer you do business with will abide by the boxer dog standards set forth. They know the recommendations for breed, traits, colors, size and health. Reputable breeders can give you documents and pictures about the parents of your newly acquired boxer. Finding out about the parents, gives you an idea of how your boxer may or may not act.

Some breeders have been in business for quite some time. For this reason, they will have tons of experience. If you have questions that need to be answered, they should be able to answer your concerns. These dealers are usually involved with respectable dog breeding clubs or very active in the organization of dog shows.

If you are buying a boxer to place in shows, then these breeders can help you find a boxer that has winner "written" all over it. They should know what judges will look for in these animals.

If you aren't looking for a champion but just want a family dog, then your best way to get one is through an animal shelter. Be aware that a quarter of these homeless dogs are purebred. You also pay less through an animal shelter than a breeder. Remember when you go through an animal shelter, you also save a canine life.

Purebred does not always entail a dog's pedigree but how it looks too. Most boxer dogs have a fawn or brindle colored coat. However, there are some that have white flecks which are called "flash". These should not cover the pup any more than one-third of its body.

If you aren't looking for a boxer to put into shows or breed, then you may want a white boxer puppy. These pups, however, can be deaf and/or blind.

If you want a boxer dog that is quiet and forbearing, then you want a male boxer dog instead of a female one. Female boxers can be hostile towards other females. For this reason, you need to be choosey about the one you bring home with you.
