Arrow Long nose or am I just Paranoid?

Buster is 10 weeks old today and as he grows his nose appears to me to be kind of long. I was curious if anyone else thought that or had any thoughts at all. I wonder if he will grow into that thing. He did come with papers but that doesn't always mean anything. To be clear, I love this dog even if his nose is huge, just wondering what you all thought. Here is a link to some pics:

I think his nose looks cute. Looks all boxer to me. I have never had a boxer from such a small age but our 15 month old boxer has a fairly long nose right now. You can also see his egg head sometime's depending on the angle. I am really thinking he is still growing into everything. He is under weight right now. Were working on getting him to where he should be.



This is our 15 month old. I do have a strong feeling he will grow into it. He is all boxer though no doubt.



You can clearly see his egg head still in this picture.

I am hoping someone else chimes in with there opinion though

BTW Welcome to the Boxer Community.

He looks normal to me too. Jaxon at 6 months had a longer snout but is normal now.

They both look to have a slightly longer snout but that doesnt necessarily mean he will when he grows into it! My Roxy looked just like him and by I think 7 months she grew into hers.

Not long at all. I've got a 11-week old female with the same snout. It will all come together in time. Does he have a egg bump behind his ears?

Does look a little long to me...Deacon's is also a little bit longer than I would like, but I think he and your pup both will grow into their noses as they age

From the breed`s std,nose should be 1/3 of the head lenght...looks to be right on the money there.

Granted,the break doesnt seem to be a perfect 90 degres but there is a lot of growing left to be done!!!

A LOT!

Okay, good. Thank you all for your input. He is definitely all boxer in attitude. We already had a female and this little male puppy is completely different. But AWESOME.
