Put simply, the price sounds too low for these to be well-bred puppies from a responsible breeder, and ConKC registration pretty much rules out "responsible" as far as the breeder goes.

Please do post the results of the tests, that will clear up much of the confusion.

DNA testing on the puppies means they needed to verify who the sire of the litter was - there are no DNA tests for the genetic conditions to which Boxers are prone.

she decided not to buy from them.....too much *problems from breeder's wife....sound too fishy to me. i told her to get one from resue in new orleans instead, and i will help her get one that way...

she is only 16 yrs old and wanted a boxer for her child...and she is in a wheelchild...

i care for her...

thanks for the great advice...

I would definitely go with a rescue rather than a puppy..I was amazed to find out that there are STILL dogs available that have been in shelter since Katrina! Unbelievable...With the situation your'e describing I would think a puppy would not be a good idea...An older dog that has already been housebroken and possibly had some training would be a lot better for her....

I agree with samsonsmom. A rescue organization would be more than willing to work with you in finding a perfect match for your sister.
Good luck and keep us posted. *:wink:

In light of all of our new members, I thought it would be good to bump this for anyone considering breeding....PLEASE READ THIS WELL AND SERIOUSLY CONSIDER WHAT YOU ARE DOING! NOT ONLY TO YOUR BOXER, BUT TO THE BREED AS WELL
