    I know that per the breed standard a boxer should have a short, single coat. But would it be possible for a purebred boxer to have a double coat? Or would that indicate a mix?

    The reason I ask is, I think Creek has a double coat. Her coat is short, but it is THICK, and the bottom layer of hair is soft and fuzzy. Recently I borrowed a Furminator from a friend to see how it worked on Creek, and it was incredible to see how much fuzzy hair it got off of her. (I've heard that this brush usually doesn't work great on boxers because it is primarily for removing the undercoat, which boxers do not have.) Just for kicks I decided to try the Furminator on Caney too... I don't think it removed a single hair from her. :LOL:

    Just curious ;)
