Default Why does my puppy snore so loud?

I have a almost 4 month old male Boxer and he snores so loud! I had a Boxer in the past that didn't snore like this. Is this normal? He also snorts a lot while licking himself... we call him "our little piggy" Just curious if I should be worried.

He could have pinched nostrils. Can you post a picture of him?

My Serena snores loudly too. She's 18 weeks old. And she snorts occasionally when washing herself.

Mine do this too. I'm guessing its because of the smushed snouts. Maybe your other boxer's snout wasn't quite as smushed?

My girls are huge snorers! I've had to turn the volume up on the tv many times in order to hear it over them.

Destiny snorts at everything!

I love all the noises they make (except the farts) and wouldnt want it any different.

Pheona & Murphy both snore but not all the time. I think the more tired they are the more/louder they snore.

Dempsey snores so loudly we don't even let him sleep in our bedroom. I feel bad about it, but we literally can't sleep when he starts! Dempsey's gotten used to sleeping in the living room, and he just goes to his bed when we go to our bedroom. I'm not sure why he snores so loudly; his nose isn't as smooshed as a lot of boxer's noses are. His nostrils aren't pinched either.

As I'm typing this, Serena is across my lap snoring up a storm. She gets extremely loud sometimes, to the point where she can be heard a room away! I think the more tired she is, the louder she snores.
