    In your honest opinions is this a bad topline?

    I've seen that little dip a lot in Boxers, and was wondering if it's bad. His hair on his withers is thicker an it makes it appear as though there's a dip. But honeestly, have you seen this before?

    Thank You,
    SaharaNight Boxers

    Of course I am not a judge but it would appear to be very minimal (to my untrained eye). Is he under two years old? I've seen a bad top line correct by or just around age two. You mentioned "dip"....I could be totally off base but when I think "dip" I think a roach back and a top line issue is more so just behind the front shoulders and (in my mind) a bit of a hump. Again, I am not a judge or a breeder so could be totally off base. Others with far more experience will be able to offer up a more experienced opinion.

    The "dip" is not at all bad. Actually it is fairly common.

    Thanks everyone! I get a little paranoid over things like this because he's not completely from show lines. His father is, but his mother is just well bred dogs.
