    I was wondering if my boxer is what you call a flashy boxer. She is dark brindle, with white on the paws, the belly, the neck and around the nose, with a line going up to the top of her head. She has the chest and a little part of the shoulders white too, and the only white she has on the back is a very special and well form P. That's why her name is Pénéloppe! :) And how do you know if your boxer is standard and has show qualities? I don't want to participate in showing, but I'm curious...

    Thank you for your help! After my reading, I can say I have a flashy boxer and I think she don't have big apparent fault to be a standard boxer. It hard to judge, but I tried the game You be judge on the site you send me and I had it pretty well... except I didn't know the British boxer type, now I know why I don't like as much the boxer on French (Europeen) sites as those american...:)

    I just look at your pictures and my Pénéloppe looks a little bit like your Layla, with a little less white, more dark brindle on an almost red background... but she is very young for now, it's hard to say if she's gonna look like yours...

    I think Penelope is a fine looking dog, she is almost a full flash. I too like the natural ears, and dont like the cropping thing.
    I am trying to achieve a full flash brindle with my girl.
    she is as what I call a black brindle, like penelope, but not as much white. she produces very large boned puppies.
    avg wt 80 lbs and a huge mastiff type head.

    Good luck if you show

    Thank you Chickie, but I don't want to show, I was just curious! As you can see, I didn't know a lot about boxer standard when I bought my baby, I didn't even know if she was what you call flashy! I though I was well informed, but since I'm coming on boxerworld, I have learn so much! Although, I knew it was the kind of dog that fits with me in caracter, exercises and all, I search a lot on that and it tooks a long time before I made a decision if I was ready for a dog and what kind of dog. I bough her from a breeder, but I don't even know if she shows! I saw the parents and I though she was beautiful and the parents too and they were all nice dogs so I take her... Full flash, it's when they have a full white large "collar" on the back of the neck with shoulders white too? You seems to have beautiful boxers, I like them large boned...

    Flashy Marked

    Actualy, the real term is Flashy Marked. Just a way to describe the markings on a Boxer. We also say Semi-Flashy marked and Plainly Marked although I prefer that to be "Classic". Markings do not make a show dog for those wondering. They can enhance a dog but can also be a bad thing. Improper placed markings can make a neck look too thick, a shoulder too straight or draw your attention to a chicken front. Too much white on the face can ruin the lovely black mask expression our dogs are supposed to have. My preference is a lesser marked Boxer with no white collar. Of course, as a pet, it really does not matter their markings as long as you love them :)

    Boxers are a medium sized breed and should be bred as such. A correctly proportioned Boxer is a lovely thing to see!
