The A K C "gazette" published the Dog & Litter reg. stats. for the yrs.,2000 & 2001. The number of Boxer litter's reg.,2000 - 965, 2001 - 928 ,dogs reg.; 2000 - 2,592 , 2001 - 2,324 . I hope the stats. continue to go down, I can't help but feel there's alot of irresponsible breeding going on . I fear that Boxer's will go the way of Retrievers if we aren't carefull !
