    Cropped Ears

    I think either way is ok. Is it cosmetic, yes. Could you possibly have less problems with your dogs ears, yes. It goes both ways. I think when anyone throws out there cropping is cruel, it's just an opinion and not a fact. Both my dogs have cropped ears and the vet always comments how good...

    Very IRRITATED!!!

    Why would she ask $150 for the boxer then? She adopts animals then sells them? Sorry if I don't understand.

    Ears: Cropped or Natural?

    Both my boxer and dane had their ears cropped. I went through so much when my dane had them done (they were taped), but when by boxer got them done (he had them cut then glued to a crown, so no tape was involved and the wound was not covered) they healed in no time and we had no problems! So...

    I would like to know, how do people train their dogs to be alone in the home and not make a mess. A mess would be anything from making a "mess" on the rug to chewing on something "off limits". Personally, I did this for my dane, and now for my boxer..I have a crate they are in until they are...

    Boxer Attack

    Now we just got a letter in the mail from the Police Dept advising our dog needs to be quarantined for 10 days then brought to the vet to assure he doesn't have rabies, and I have to have the vet sign this form and send it back to the township. Also, they have Yoda noted as a "pit bull". When...

    Boxer Attack

    Yoda had a very traumatizing experience last weekend, and I wound up in the ER! Myself and both my dogs (boxer and great dane) were all in the kitchen by the table. My kitchen chairs are metal and the backs are made up of poles that are wide at the top and extremely narrow at the bottom...

    Great Dane & Boxer

    They are best buddies. When Yoda got neutered a few weeks back, he had to stay all day at the vet, and Zero was just so out of touch. Moped around, and just layed in the room we keep Yoda's crate...that he stays in during the day. Although, Yoda just can't help but bother Zero ALL the time...

    Boxer Traits

    I'm sure Jack has no problem jumping the gate! Boxers jump very high. Whenever I blocked Yoda in somewhere he jumps the's when I'm there shampooing the rug or mopping the floor, and he'll do it right in front of me. If you continue to have a problem, you may want to get a crate. I...

    Boxer Traits

    My boxer does have the common traits, like: *Laying on carpet with legs back like frog *Jumping like a nut with his paws out in front, like a boxer! *Hating puddles *Eating the dust broom *Drags his feet *Likes to lay his head on the pillow at night *Puts paws under door and wines when we...

    Boxer Traits

    Good luck with getting a boxer. They truely are a joy, although when they're puppies, like most puppies, those horns seem to come out a lot more than when they're adults. I find my boxer to be extremely affectionate, which sometimes can put you in a better mood. My boxer doesn't bark much...

    I think my Yoda understands, but just doesn't listen. Lucky for you to have a well trained dog! There's nothing like it!

    Multiple Pictures

    Ok, I did a little exploring and figured out how to get my picture just right to attach to my profile. Now, how do I add more than one picture, or have one picture flip to another back and forth? Does any body know?
