I remember when I first adopted Tucker someone said he looked stacked and I had no idea what they were talking about.

So, is this stance natural to Boxers and if so is it only Boxers?

These two pictures are from Tucker's first week with me. Not much chance that he is a show dog so I have assumed that it is natural.







Thanks

It's basically natural. You do have to train it. It's basically just having the front legs slightly under them and their hocks ( kinda like their ankle) parallel to the ground. It is hard to explain. it's natural for most dogs depending on angulation. If you were to look up "German shepherd stack" you'll see they actually move one of the back legs up and their hocks aren't parallel. It all depends on the angulation of the breed, but on the whole it's natural. It's like "parking out" for horses.

This might sound strange, but unless you got permission to use that picture you might not want to just post it everywhere. I'm guessing you found it on google maybe? Some owners get possessive over their dogs photos because some miss use them or use them for advertising falsely. Of course you aren't though. Especially because that dog, Sabre, is pretty famous.

Yes I only though about that after I posted the picture,but as you said I didn't intend to mis-use the picture. Just wanted to show a great example of a boxer

Thankyou for tell me what the proper name is,been learning everyday on the forum,will go edit the first post.
