Hi Everyone, thanks for stopping by! :)

Gail,

Hi, believe me, if you have a male dog with no intention of breeding (obviously) then getting them castrated is the best thing to do.

It's not something I liked asking the vet to do but.. It can save you big problems should some unfortunate meeting occur with someone else's dog. And it certainly makes male dogs a little less boisterous/aggressive if that's a problem.

I wish it wasn't necessary, but it mostly is for responsible dog ownership.

Actually I'm a bit of a hypocrite as Jason only got his removed when he was quite old because the vet said it was needed for his health. It was a preventative measure and one of his testicles had never dropped and there was a danger of cancer.

Hi Paul yeah not too bad thanks and yourself?
My boy seems to be good he had a histiocytoma in March which was removed and thankfully totally benign. He walked out of surgery like nothing had happened!! I wanted to ask have you got any remedies for acne, he has had antibiotics twice and i am using a face cleanser from the vets, but they seem to be flaring up again!! And i don't really want him to have a face scrape, thanks alot!! - David

Hi Michelle! :)

Is it just me, when I follow your link, I get this message -

"Our records show that the account you're attempting to connect to either does not exist or is currently inactive."

David,

Yeah I'm not bad thanks, very busy at the moment though. Been planning for about half a year to change this part of the site so it's more usable. But one thing or another (Including the script I want to use not getting out of beta yet.) means it hasn't happened.

Acne, I've had a couple of dogs with it on their chin. However either the treatments you've already tried have worked or it's not been enough of a problem to worry about.

Face scrape? Sounds awful, what exactly is it?

Hi Paul

Basically he went on 7 days worth of antiobiotics and anti inflammatory's, while using a face scrub from the vet and it healed up within a few days. However i then tried a different raw meat and the spots emerged again, however the vet said this could be coinsidence. Again 7 days of antibiotics and face srub - healed up in few days again. The spots are not as bad as yet however they are slightly swore on the chin (bleeding). So i was wondering what you used? A face scrape involves a sedative and then a scrape of the skin to determine what it is. But i want to stick it out see if it goes. Cheers Paul

Sorry I'm being so lax in replying of late. As I mentioned very busy right now.

Hey David, I'm sorry to say I can't remember any of the product names, but I remember they were antibiotic based like the things you've already tried.

The scrape doesn't sound as bad as I thought, perhaps, then again it requires a sedative so I guess it can't be that nice.


Hi Tania!

Welcome and thanks for bothering to comment. I was sorry to read about Poppy, especially since My first Boxer was called Poppy too. I'm glad you've still got Posh to keep you happy. :)

Becci,

Hi there, nice of you to drop by. Maybe someone else can get you some good information because. I'm afraid I don't know enough about any of the ins and outs of breeding. I leave that to the professionals.

You could try the forums at http://www.boxerworld.com/ There's bound to be people in the know there.

The only thing I would say is be very careful to check out who you are getting involved with and know their reputation when getting involved in breeding.

Hey there,I found your site whilst looking around online at the weekend.I think its wonderful,you have owned some beautiful dogs in your time!As if by chance,a friend of the family who breeds boxers,had one puppy left for sale out of a litter,that nobody wanted due to him being white.However,last night we decided to be the ones to give him a good home,and he is fabulous!He's 9 weeks old,and our first boxer,as we'v generally been alsation owners.Anyways,I saw the picture of Lily,and wondered if you wanted a picture of little Deuce?He's white,with a brindle patch over his ear and eye.Any advice would be great too!

Hi Rachel!

That's wonderful, it's a real shame no one wanted Deuce, but it is not unusual. I think it's becoming far more common to see white Boxers now though.

They do seem to be gaining more acceptance. As well they should because other than colouring they are just the same as any other Boxer, at least in my experience.

Same character, fun, lovable huggableness. It was good luck for you and your family that no one else wanted Deuce!

I'll email about the picture thanks! :)


Hey there Andy!

Welcome, nice of you to stop by. I'll be honest with you Andy, I'm not sure there are different types of boxer.

You do get Boxers with different colouring/markings though. There are three main groups.

White Boxers are not considered breed standard. Which is probably in part why nobody seemed to want Rachel s new puppy. This is simply because they have a predominantly white coat.

Nearly all Boxers have some white though.

Brindle Boxers are most common. They have a mixture of browns and blacks and reds. Like most of the dogs in the pictures here.

You also get Red Boxers of course. Both Poppy and Jason, in the pictures here are quite red.

Added to this you get some Boxers with long natural, uncropped tails. Some with pointy cropped ears. The ears don't get cropped at all in a lot of countries. Like here in the UK, which I'm glad about but the tails are almost always cropped.

A good little basic guide is here >> http://en.wikipedia.org/w­iki/Boxer_%28dog%29

Yo­u­ couldn't do better. In essance they are all the same dog type they just look a little differant. :)

What a lovely website! I have always grown up with dogs, namely Bassett Hounds, so when myself and my fiancee decided to get a dog it was a big suprise to come home with a white boxer puppy. I agree, those who don't accept white boxers are crazy, Tess is the most beautiful (and troublesome) boxer I have ever met, we love her to bits!

Hello, Just popped in to have a look as I'm hoping to 'adopt' our first Boxer from a rescue sanctuary. The photo's on here are really wonderful and your comments about the 'boxer' have confirmed that I'm making the right decision. Our new addition is white and about three years old...we've already got a list of names and a warm bed and lots of good food ready. Thanks again for a wonderful site! All the best. Annie

Hi Kim,

Basset hounds are so cute, I remember when i was at school I used to pass one every day. Always thought they'd be great pets.

Still I do think Boxers beat all comers so Tess was the right choice for sure. ;)

Hi Annie good for you,

Taking in a rescue dog is great. Sometimes they have problems but then don't all dogs and don't we? :D It's nice to hear about people getting an older dog rather than a puppy too. :) Though they still act a lot like puppies at 3 :D Sounds like your dog will have a great home. :)

I've just popped onto your site for a wee look - it's superb but then I don't know anything about the tech'i side of things but as a user and viewer I know what I like.

ABOUT YOUR DOGS!
What can I say? No wonder you are proud, all of your dogs are the best they are beautiful, handsome, loving and caring. I should know - all boxers are a familys bestest friend in the whole wide world.

Which of your dogs are best looking, I can't comment as I think they are all fabulous

your pic of lily reminds me very much of my white boxer Lulu, who also likes to blow bubbles in her water dish with her nose! She is 3 this year, and a right little monkey, jumping up at anyone who comes close!! She is the sunshine in my life, always wagging her stumpy little tail (and the rest of her back end!!). She helped very much when i was suffering with depression, better than any antidepressant. All hail Lulu, the queen of my heart!

Hi there

Wondered if you can help me with my Boxer. Kovu will be 2 years old in October and I have so many problems when it comes to walking him. He constantly pulls all the time and I can't stop him. He almost goes bliue tongued when walking cos he pulls so much. I've tried so many different types of leads - now using a choke chain but I can't keep him from pulling.
We took him to puppy training classes when he was little but even the trainers couldn't handle him.
What can I do - any suggestions?
thanks
Sarah
