Exactly Molly - jealous they can't be as fabulous as a boxer! lol

But seriously, DH had his first experience with this at the dog park the other day. Some lady was there with some kind of mastiff mix. Apparently the dog was very aggressive towards Duke (he was the only other dog there at the time) and kept trying to bully Duke into running away so that he could chase him and tackle him. He was very mouthy (as in biting at Duke) and the lady kept apologizing saying she was sorry that he was so aggressive. At one point DH said he had to physically get the dog off Duke because he wouldn't back off and Duke was actually afraid and coming to sit by DH's feet to get away from him. The lady had no control over him! And then she asks DH what kind of dog Duke was (Duh!!!) and goes on to state that was the reason her dog was so aggressive - because he didn't like boxers. Really? Seriously? I'm sorry but I don't think dogs are capable of "breedism"!

Depends on the other dog. I do see it more with older or less active dogs a lot. I think boxers may be to jumpy or hyper for them to deal with. I know that Cooper tends to ignore the 'leave me alone' signs from other dogs because he's, well, rude, and wants to play.

sometimes but it's mainly because Lucy is an over whelming kisser and the other dogs do not appreciate her love, silly dogs dont know how special it is to be loved by a boxer.

I think it has something to do with the way Boxer breed. Head up, very vocal, and cropped tail. Hard for other dogs to read them.

Yes and I find that other dogs can often misunderstand the way Boxers play. They are not used to how vocal and how physical Boxers can be in their play. The way Boxers play can be read by other dogs as aggression.

Yes most definitely. Other dogs often do no relate to the kind of play that our boxers want. It's hard and almost harder getting owners to know its ok.
