The fawn girl is from another breeder, I am considering not getting her, even though I really want to. I am in love with her already. The only resason is the the mother had non breeding registation, and obviously she was bred any way. I also have a non refundable deposit on her. Not sure, I dn't hav much money, but I want *a good dog
Esther
Ps do y ou think I could get my money back, because the mom is on nonbeeding contract??

I would try!!!!! In the end you will probably save way more money than your deposit if you wait and get a good puppy from a reputable breeder that health tests. Dealing with heart issues or other health problems will costs you plenty not to mention heart break!!!

Did you put down the deposit down after you knew about the mother having a non-breeding contract? * If so, then to me that is terms for a refund. *If you knew and then put down, you can try - but the fact they bred a bitch who was not supposed to would not want me to have any part of anything. *What happens if the owner who placed the pup in a non-breeding contract found out about the litter and thus had right to claim the pups or something like that ? *IMO not a situation I would want to get into either.

However you have to make a decision that you are comfortable with, and one that you feel all information was presented and verified. * Having lost two boxers as you have, taking the extra time and combing thru everything making sure you are getting the best pup for your dollar, is totally worth it IMO.

Good LUck!!

I'm like Heather, I like to look at pedigrees, trace a line and see which ones I am familiar with...I don't see any of that, or if any of these dogs have been shown( take that back, one male looks like may have been shown), no mention of finished champions....She says she health tests, I would also want to see hard copies....Too me, you cannot consistently breed from your own stock, you are not always going to have the perfect match all the time, you need to breed out, that also brings in a new bloodline as well

Thanks everyone for this insightful thread. I posted the link on our Boxer Club of Hawaii link-had 0 idea about the European lines thing. I always wondered how breeders got those dogs in from there. So many breeders here in Hawaii have dogs from European lines and I am glad more information was provided here. Of course, finding a dog out in Hawaii that has every health check that the ABC recommends is pretty much not an option. I am told by the top showdog breeders that the vets here don't even have all the equipment to run some of the tests. So, BYB is very prevelant in our region. I get 3-4 e-mails a week from people wanting boxer pups and many will get them no matter what. So, I just do my best to put out good information.

Sorry for the post hijak... hope you find a good dog and yes, if you put a deposit down on a dog that you thought was going to be AKC, you may be able to take legal action to get the money back if they won't refund it but you would have to prove that in writing. Did you have a contract?

I have knowledge of Landos Boxers. Most of their dogs are not hip certified. Also, they are not heart tested. They just have clearances from the vets. She occasionally uses another kennels stud dog to "improve" and add euro lines to her dogs. None of her dogs are imported. Last year she had approx. 75 puppies, this year I know of 6 litters that have already been sold and her site says she is expecting two more fall litters.

Personally, I think this is nothing but a backyard breeder. BUT.. I know several friends that have Landos puppies/dogs and they have never had any health issues with them. A couple of them are older dogs too. So all you can do is do your homework and proceed with caution.

All the talk about shipping worldwide and break downs in cost says it's a mix between a BYB and puppy mill IMO. I would expect to see a site like this on puppyfinder.com. No health testing mentioned and the amount of dogs being bred can't be good either.

I've just joined Boxer Forum. *I had a bad experience with Landos Boxers. I was told they test the dogs and we bought a beautiful boxer baby that ended up dieing 7 weeks later from immune mediated poly arthritis. We spent $2,500. in vet fees (which I would do again in a heart beat) and involved the breader with what was happening. *When my baby died calls were not returned and the health guarantee would not be honoured. *Good luck with your new baby and if you did purchase from Landos I hope you have a better experience.

Redd sorry for your loss. * I have seen way too many people as well as dogs experience sadness and unfort. loss of life due to sub-par breeding. * Its unfot that thru a bad experience people then learn what to look for in a breeder. * Hoping that if you have not yet found another boxer, that your experience will lead you to a responsible, reputable breeder in which you have a family pet that lead a long long life!!!
