    Difference in German Boxers?

    "Your dog is hideously ugly!"

    Stunned and I would be speechless too! Wow, I was really laughing at the last person's entry, but I too would have been a little taken back. Doesn't this person know that beauty is only skin deep! Good Grief! Even the ugliest of uglies are beautiful! Look at Prince Charles, now that takes a...

    Difference in German Boxers?

    Euopean Boxers do look very different! Here in Germany, there are very stick laws about what you can do to your dog even if it is a pure breed. For instance, you may not crop the tail, ears or even remove the duclaw (hope I spelled that right). I saw the cutest male boxer, but his jaw looked...

    I just joined today- Here is Stella!

    I have two and they are best of buds! Even though Alexandria is a Boxer and Buster is a Cocker (and about 11 years older) they are best friends. I won't tell you that you will have twice the work, but they will occupy each other which helps when you want to do something.
