Yes, and with Dodger they can certainly be overwhelmed, he's 80 lbs of pure muscle saying "there's a new friend, can I meet him, can I meet him, can I meet him". He thinks EVERYONE is a new friend, dogs or people. LMAO.

Ha ha. Yep. That was Winnie. Poor Winnie had such a live adfair with little dogs. I figure he must have been paired with a small breed before he came to us. He would see themcing a mile away and get all prancy, head up and start pulling to get to them. They usually wanted nothing to do with him. LOL

This is what I was going to say, I went to an amazing seminar a few years back They went into this topic. A boxers stance alone (more so on a leash) can be threatening to other dogs, combine this with a cropped tail, which takes away one of the physical (communication) signs that people and dogs normally look for. It makes it much harder for other dogs to read them. If only they would do their boxer wiggle from a distance lol. I know with Breeze, she goes right into that full "on alert" stance when she is curious, the wiggle butt comes after she has had a full sniffing exam of her new friend lol.

Poor misunderstood boxers

they are so misunderstood and very true about their natural ways of their stance and muscularness. lol

dually was playing with her bff zoe one day at the park and of course they are loud and rough and this other dog apparently was not ok with this and went in after them and got ahold of Dually. She is fine but more weary towards that kind of dog. just an example of another dog not understanding our beloved babies.

i feel like i am constantly letting people know they are just playing, i know they sound vicious but its how they are "Vocal" and she isnt biting she is "corn cobbing"

Pheona did 2 sets of training with an airedale terrier. When the owner & dog first walked into the class she (the owner) was taken back with Pheona in the room. She was cautious with Pheona in the beginning. I guess they'd been to the dog park & there had been 2 or 3 boxers there that went after her dog. She said after that boxers were iffy on her list & that her dog had been iffy with them as well. Pheona & her dog got along great, played after class in the classroom and everything.

I think boxers' play style is very misunderstood by most breeds, and that they present themselves in a very "in your face" manner when they first meet another dog. For this reason, I think boxers play best with their own kind. I rarely take Dempsey to the dog park, for this reason. I agree that the lack of a full tail is definitely a problem, and if the dog has cropped ears, it's even worse.

On another forum I'm a member of, someone started a "What's A Breed You Wouldn't Have" type thread. Boxers were listed by many people as one they can't tolerate, b/c of the hyperness, in your face demeanor, and general rudeness, with the ones they had come in contact with. I can't say I disagree with these opinions. You have to have a certain personality type to "get" this breed - lol!

I agree that you have to have a certain personality type to "get" a boxer. My mother-in-law has been here visiting & you hear her constantly yelling about the girls doing this or that. She's not a fan of being licked & Pheona is our licker. But she'll yell at Murphy for licking and she doesn't. What she's getting is a wet dog nose touching her. My mother-in-law used to yell at Maggie for licking her too & Maggie was never a licker either. I did tell my husband the other night that the girls aren't listening to her cause she's using the wrong command words & confusing the heck out of them.

Yes I see your point. The natural stance of the boxer and lack of tail could definitely be scary to an insecure dog.
