I am moving to switzerland and taking one of my Boxers with me, and my partner who i am going to be living with has a female Irishwolf hound which is the same age as my Amy, year and 3 months.

lil history from back home, I have 2 boxers my male is turning 5 this year he is not fixed, Amy my female is fixed, and Amy lets bruno know shes the boss, Amy will scuff down her food fast and if you talk to bruno and distract him from eating she will scoop in and start eating his food and he will just walk away, Another thing lol bruno will be chewing on his bone and amy will come and take it and he will just walk away and go lay down and lets her walk all over him its kinda funny, But i mean they get along and play alot, but now and then if bruno gets pissed at her he will let her know whos the bigger one lol.


But i am really curious as to how she will be with her new friend. Azzra ( irishwolf hound) just finished her first heat and she is a really independant dog and just do her own thing, And i mean i play rough with my boxers just cause they have so much eneergy and can handle it, but wen i try to play rough with Azzra she just walks away and goes and lay down or whatever just goes away from me, So i am a little worried that they might fight alot because Amy being fixed she is really dominant and Azzra is really passive, I know dogs show their boundaries and let the other now where they stand. But i just hope they dont fight cause amy is a shit disturber.

sorry for spelling mistakes kinda typed this fast.

I wish you luck on the move. I would say introduce them slowly - if you can send something with Amy's sent on it before you go that might be a good idea.

Just curious: why are Bruno and Azzra not neutered?

Best of luck.

well Bruno was my first boxer and it was kinda of a long discussion with the family to neuter him, and by the time he was 2 or 3 we figured it was to late to neuter him because he had his balls for so long we thought it would be cruel for him, But Bruno is just a house dog he goes for his walks and paly in the backyard sometimes take him to the dog park, But hes really just a house family dog and have no intentions of breeding him. And when we got Amy first thing that came to mind was getting her fixed since bruno was already 4 at the time.

And Azzra well since she is my Partners dog its really his decision to get her fixed or not, But he strongly believes that if you let your female have or go into their first heat and then breed her ONCE(when she capable of), then she will be fully matured and grown up and know their sex and who they are kinda thing, So we decided to breed her once and then get her fixed after.

Also a little FYI, if any of you move to Europe make sure you have all the paper work, Alot of the countries in Europe banned tail docking and ear clipping, So when I move here with Amy, As soon as she gets in switzerland i have to take her to a goverment building and they write up a certificate stating she did not get it done here because she is from Canada, And im curious but wont know untill i am here but i think alot of the people look down upon that stuff, so it will be interesting hearing the comments from people about her docked tail once shes here.

Just an FYI, breeding her once won't make her grow up stronger. And they don't have that fulfilled mindset. It's a longtime myth. Pregnancy is very hard on their body (look at bitches that have recently had litters, they look pretty rough most times) and can possibly kill them.

If you are set on breeding her make sure you complete all her health testing before. Echo, holter, hips, and thyroid at least.

I hope he changes his mind on the litter before fixing her there are too many unwanted dogs in the world already - let alone he is doing it for a reason that is a myth.

I personally dont want to breed her but since she is not mine i can only put my 2 cents in, But if i cant convince him otherwise i think we are going to breed her. And it wont be any byb, i have been flamed to many times and upset about talking about breeding because of being flamed and trolled. All of the proper steps will be taken towards breeding her and should be by every one who want to breed their dog.

Other than talking with his vet about it, there are a ton of resources online to use as references and very knowledgeable people to give there tips about it, like you sarah. So I kindly appreciate you sharing that about at least what tests should be done before breeding her.

Katrina you can also say the same thing about humans, there are so many unwanted babys ( orphans ) so why have kids of your own when you simple adopt a baby already with no parents or family. I asume most people like to carry on their bloodline and same with their dogs, and why not? as long as its done proper.

Breeding is not a bad thing unless you are doing it for all the wrong reasons, I admit his reasons are a bit based on " myth " sarah said but I on the other hand , take into account on how to go abouts making sure its done properly and not because of all the wrong reasons.

Not going to argue with you about this it is your partners decision of course, but I fail to see the logic of puropsely breeding an animal in comparison to a child.

Guess I am abit jaded as I foster for a rescue and see so many dogs needing homes immediately because it is no longer wanted and I feel the frustration of not being able to bring another in as I am at capacity.

Good luck with whatever decision you make and hope the pups have stable lifetime homes in the future.

Oh most certainly they will, I like to do screenings of people, and ask lots of questions to make sure they go to the right home and be forever loved and not just dump them off.

were not talking about toys, were talking about living Innocent animals who needs to be with the right family and people and treat them with respect. This isnt a childs game.........
