Default My boxers parents

Hi, I'd like to know your opinion on my boxer Dempseys parents, do his parents look mixed or pure(last picture)? I'll include pictures of my boy as well. He's 9 months and do you think he'll grow more or stay the same? Thank so much.

They don't look mixed to me, but I don't know how "well bred" they are. Your boy at 9 months still has growing to do. Mine got bulkier and added 10 lbs after one year.

What does "well bred" exactly mean?

Check AKC standards and compare other boxers being shown. I'm not sayng they are not I just don't know...
I would think a good indicator would have been their pedigree and if they were health tested prior to breeding.

Well to answers your question directly ... yes those are Boxers. But there is more to being a "Breeder" than because I have a Male and Female Boxer ... I am going to have puppies and sell them. Just because one has two nice looking Pure Breeds ... that does not automatically make them "Breed Worthy."

A lot of factors go into that ... and if we were speaking of GSD's I'd say "Temperament" is key.

But Boxer's you know, I've met many worked with a few over the years ... always males ... boring.

And I have only seen one Boxer ... that you would not want to meet in a dark alley! A Flashy Female behind her fence, Rocky and I (Over Size Workingline GSD) the (neighbor said we have a Boxer. Safely behind their front yard fence and straining on her leash, the neighbors brought her out. And the Boxer ... never made a sound but she was staring at Rocky like he was raw meat!! I'd never seen that look on a Boxer before ... I was stunned??? I'd chalk that up to a failure in training ... Rocky by contrast ... paid her no mind keeping dogs out of his face ... is Daddy's job.

But back on point ... and narrowing scope ... JQP generally just wants a "healthy example of the Breed we luv. And real Breeders Health Test Their dogs.

The top three things that take Boxers out are and I can't remember the order ... Heart issues, Dogs just drop over dead in the 6 month to 3 year without warning??? Cancer ... Boxers are referred to in the medical community as "Cancer in a Box." I heard that one by our vet ... he looked at me and said "Oh Sorry" ... I said no problem.

And neurological ... that one claimed Struddell "degenerative myelopathy" struck Struddell down at age 8, she could no longer walk/run.

A quality Breeder health test their dogs and you stack the odds in your favor of not having those things happen, early on at anyrate. Dogs don't live forever ... saddly.

70 percent of all Breeding Pairs carry the gene that causes DM. If it's only a gene in one or the other parent, you can skate but if both carry the DM gene ... your dog's gonna go down at some point. One can at least avoid that risk with health tested parents. At Risk, Carrier and DM Clear (that last one is ideal.) If you were to ask your dogs Breeders about DM ... I doubt they would have any idea what you're talking about???

You could have your puppy tested to see if he is at Risk to develop DM later in life if you want to know. It won't change anything but then you would know what symptoms to look for ...

Kari, is a member here and most likely she will chime in but what you want to look for ... next time is something more like this.:

I'm not forecasting Doom and Gloom for your puppy ... just trying to answer your question, Welcome Aboard in anycase.

They aren't looking mixed bred. As far as your concern. Your boy will grow some more. And after completion of an year, he might also put on some weight.
