    Help naming a non-Boxer dog

    Thanks! He's been pretty great so far. Some anxiety in the crate still but hopefully that gets better at some point. Still miss our boxer boy though, he was pretty close to perfect angelicon

    Help naming a non-Boxer dog

    Hi we've been so busy I haven't been back on to update. We ended up going with a racing related name.. Nitro. Seems to fit him and his personality. We had him for about two weeks without an official name... I think I might get a DNA test kit to see if I can find out if he's a mix and if so...

    DNA Test Results

    Thank you! The one I was looking at wasn't expensive either so figured what could it hurt and has mostly good reviews, but then there were the crazy ones too. I guess that's expected with anything though! I think I'll probably give it a shot, I'm curious to know what he is a mix of.

    Our newly adopted dog!!

    Thanks! Ideally I'd like him to not use a crate in the long run. Our boxer always had to be crated because he would get into trouble as soon as people weren't around but he loved his crate so it didn't matter much. I definitely can't leave this one out at the moment because I would assume from...

    Our newly adopted dog!!

    Also, as I mentioned he's not crate trained. He's having separating anxiety which is understandable given he wasn't taken care of by his original owners then was at a shelter for about a month and a half before coming here. He hates the crate. Does not want anything to Do with it. We had a...

    Our newly adopted dog!!

    Our boxer boy who we got as a puppy sadly passed in July and although we were planning on waiting longer to get a new dog, this one kind of just happened. Well, more like I have a petfinder problem! Anyways, I fell in love with him as soon as I saw him and just knew he was meant to be ours...

    DNA Test Results

    What kind of test did you use? Blood or just a mouth swab? We just adopted a dog and Im curious to know exactly what he is. I looked online at the mouth swab ones and the reviews were mixed.

    Help naming a non-Boxer dog

    Thanks for all the replies so far!! Keep them coming! I agree I think he definitely needs some sort of tough manly name and he's probably going to be a big boy! His tongue is pink. They think he is some sort of mastiff mix but who knows. I would love to find out at some point though. We are...

    Help naming a non-Boxer dog

    I have always loved this site, although haven't been back in a while due to life just getting so busy. Anyway, our Boxer boy passed back in July. I was far more devastated then I thought I would be (he was our first dog). We had planned on waiting another year and half or so to get another dog...

    AKC Announces Most Popular Breeds

    Boxers were tied for #4 in 2010 in Boston, MA and got bumped down to #6. Although I live about 30 minutes south of Boston I will say there are quite a few boxers in my little town and I see them all over the place around here.

    Feeding multiple cats

    We keep the cats food under an end table cornered between two couches so there is no way for the dog to get it because he definitely would if it were out. I had planned on feeding our cat now two seperate feedings be he just doesn't eat a lot at one time so this is what has worked best for us...

    Feeding multiple cats

    Last year in November we got our first cat and in a week or two we will be getting our second one. We would have loved to have gotten another dog but there's a possibility we might have more kids in the very near future and with my history of bedrest a 2nd dog probably isn't the best idea yet...

    Boxer/ Mastiff confusion any thoughts

    You know what I've noticed and I don't know if this is everywhere or just around my area.. but when I'm looking around on petfinder I tend to look at boxers and mastiffs and not as much with the boxer but definitely with the mastiffs almost all of them look like pitbulls. Now I have no problem...

    Hobbies?

    Whoa! You just shaved all your hair off?! :eek: I'm commenting on this one because for one I'm a little shocked and two I have also been messing with my hair over the summer. I've always highlighted it for years and years and years and I finally got sick of the same look so I wanted a drastic...
