Vashau; I'm sorry but I have to agree with most of what is being said here.

You should not breed Apollo. He does not even look like a boxer in some of those pictures. He would do nothing to promote the breed. He should not be bred.

I don't understand why you would even attempt a question like this; it's almost to the point you trolling. Just posting to stir the pot type of thing.

I sincerely hope that you come to your senses about the whole idea of breeding. Besides the obvious fact that he is such a poor representative of the breed, you did not have him health tested either. Even if you did, and it turned out well, I still would not breed him as he does not look like a boxer. His snout is waaaayyyy to long, the shape of his head is all wrong. He doesn't have the characteristics of hte boxer chest in addition to the fact that his topline and neck are all wrong as well.

You have a poorly bred dog. Although he is very handsome in his own way he does not represent the boxer breed in the least. I don't mean to sound harsh but please take an honest and hard look at the differences.......

American Standard: (Winner last year)

16 Dogs to Watch at the Westminster Dog Show in 2012

UK Standard: (winner in Crufts in 2011)

Photo Gallery

These are just a few examples of well bred; health tested dogs. I don't mean to be cruel or harsh but face facts. Does your dog look like them?

If this is the case, then besides owners, and rescuers you should know better then anyone that it's wrong, and not blow it off so easily, because it's something someone wants to do..That's the problem, issues like this are taken far to lightly because it might hurt someones feeling?!?!?

Bosley does not look like any of those dogs either, so I guess he's not a breed standard. You may need to have him health tested. Btw Apollo is health tested, very well behaved and a great companion. Do what u wish with your dog and ill do the same. I would like to stud Apollo before getting him fixed.-imageuploadedbypg-free1362827130.515724.jpg

I don't think Bosley's mom is planning on studding him out. Many of us own dogs not up to breed standard. All eight of mine look completely different from one another. I can't say a single one is even close to breed standard, but then I'm not looking for breed standard. I'm looking to adopt boxers dumped in shelters about to be euthanized due to age/health.

What health testing have you had done? Just interested to know.

I understand the passion, but it was a honest question. Thank you for the feedback but I've found a blue pit to breed Apollo with and we are calling the pups Pixers. Taking deposits..lol
Apollo is scheduled to go under the knife in two weeks. Seriously, to the folks that really broke down the pros and cons respectfully, thank you!

FYI: the topic was supposed to be eye catching. The question was: has anyone else felt that urge.

I believe they're called bull-boxers and they already exist. Sad.

And no I don't have that urge. While I got Moxie from a byb I refuse to contribute to the large genepool of poorly bred and unwanted 'mutts'.

I think, and hope, that the part about breeding Apollo to a pitbull was meant as a joke. Although, not a very amusing one.
