    Gums overtaking front teeth

    Harley Girl is about 7 now and I've noticed that her front teeth are starting to disappear. Her gums are overtaking them. I know there is a name for this and I was hoping someone could remember it for me so I can research it. Also, if anyone has had this happen did the vet recommend anything...

    Decribe your Boxer in one word.

    Well, my male is known as, Titan the Terrible. He eats everything, counter surfs, jumps on people, acts like a lunatic on walks. You name it, he does it. Harley Girl is "fatty". Since getting Titan, she will shove him out of the way to eat his food and has put on a few pounds too many.

    Testicles

    It is not going to drop. It is too late for that to happen. The canal has closed. A dog with undescended tesicles needs to be fixed due to increased health risks. My Titan had this, one didn't drop. Don't let people saying it's a bigger surgery scare you. They just mean it is not as simple...

    Breeder insisting that we take him at 6 wks?

    The highlighted statements contradict each other. Find another breeder. Xmas sounds like the perfect excuse to push the puppies out the door early. If it was January I wonder what excuse they would use to get you to take the puppy early. And I thought it was illegal to send a puppy...

    I swear I feed him...

    As someone else suggested, there is a pill that can be used. But beware, it can give your pup the squirts. My coworker used it and 2 of her 3 dogs stomachs were rolling with the worst gas ever and then started leaving even worse presents all over the house. (she has 3 puppy mill dogs)...

    chest and body improvement

    My male is going to be 2 in December. He still has the young dog chest. I don't really expect him to fill out until next year. My female didn't fill out until around 2.5 years old. Like Cami said, all you can do is wait and see.

    hair loss behind his ears

    I don't think it would be ring worm. There is no border, and it isn't circular looking at all. I suppose the thyroid thing seems most logical of everything I have read. I swear if I don't find a normal vet's office I am taking him to our old vet that is an hour and half away. These people...

    hair loss behind his ears

    About a month or more ago, one day it seemed that the fur behind Titan's ears looked a little light in color. I didn't think much of it at first, because his fur is lighter in color on his shoulder blades than the rest of him. But a few days went passed and I still thought it was lighter in...

    Rescued boxer won't listen to male!

    This is the most horrible thing I have ever read. This is honestly my worst fear when it comes to my dogs. I fear this more than any illness they are prone to. This is just so random, and it could happen to anyone. Sweet Hank will run free at Rainbow Bridge with all our other babies who...

    Small?

    I brought Harley home when she was about a year old. She is now 5ish and her best weight is 53 pounds. She always seemed short to me, but my male isn't that much taller at almost 2 years old. But he is thicker. I had a neighbor who had got a female boxer who was the runt of the litter...

    Do Undescended testicle (Cryptorchidism) eventually drop sometimes?

    No it is not going to drop. Generally if it doesn't drop by 8 weeks it isn't going to. The "maybe" period ends at 6 months old, some say 4 months. But either way, you are way past both. You do need to have him fixed. Undescended testicles are prone to cancer and can have testiclur...

    HELP PLEASE - My 2 Female Boxers Are Visciously Fighting Each Other :(

    This sounds like maturity has come and they do not want the other female around. Boxer females have been known to fight to the death. It is not about being dominant, it is about being the only one. This is the reason no boxer rescue I have ever heard of will adopt a female to a house with...

    alpha fights? 2?'s and long...

    My dogs are going through something similar. Harley is about 5 years old and Titan is almost 2 years old. Shortly after he turned one, he suddenly became less submissive to her. The best way I can describe it is that he was challenging her. There are never any true fights, but it is...

    Neuter question . . .

    Yes my boy has an empty skin sac hanging down too. It is supposed to shrink a little, but I expect it will always be visible. I think when the surgery is done when they are younger it goes away more than when they have surgery when older. When extremely overweight people lose hundreds of...

    Neuter question . . .

    I had Titan neutered at 18 months. He didn't calm down one bit! He is still a psycho! What I have found interesting is that now that I got him nuetered, he is constantly trying to hump Harley! What gives? Actually, I think it is a dominance thing due to age. He has been more brave during...

    So do you think he's a mix?

    I love pitties. But many people don't. I would be very careful who you are telling that your dog has pit in it. This includes insurance companies. Is he short or tall? If he is on the tall side, I would tell people he is a boxer/dane mix instead. The first time I saw him I thought dane...

    Puppy play??

    Boxers sound like vicious beasts when they play. I have 2, and if someone ever walks past my house when they are playing while the windows are open, I am sure the police will be called to come bust up the dog fighting ring! You will need to watch the reactions of the other dogs. Sometimes...

    If you put up a dog run or get a long leash make sure it does not reach the fence at all or he could try to jump it and strangle himself!!!
