Default FINDIND THE PERFECT COMPANION!!! HELP

Hi i just joined the forum after a few days of just surfing. Looks like a wonderful place to be. I will give you a little information on my scoop lol. A year ago my roomate wanted a dog and I told him get a boxer because I just love them. So it was a good experience because i got to take care of one without the $$ aspect even though there weren't many problems to take care of. My roomate moved back home and took the boxer with him. I have wanted my own for years but havent been in the best state to have one for my own. Im now 23 and am finishing my last semester of university in Toronto. I am from Bermuda so will eventually be living with the new boxer there. I have been looking around and have come across Lando's boxers which is about an hour and a half away from me. http://landosbxer.com/
I am going this weekend to take a look and have a chat. If ANYONE has any info or experiences with them it would be wonderful! also here is the stipulation. Ideally i would have loved to get the new pup/dog end of april when i will be graduating and will be going back to bermuda during the summer until oct. and will come back to toronto for about another year or two. I would have loved to bring up the puppy in bermuda where it would have a large yard to run around in and enjoy while i am at work and can take him to the beach etc. when im back home. and he will have been well socialized when i bring him back to toronto with me. ONLY thing is that bringing in dogs from north america to bermuda the dog must have two rabies shots which means they have to be around 10months.
This is just a little info about that.

Anyway I was looking at Lando's but a definately open to any suggestions of great breeders. So basically if i bring a dog in from America/Canada the dog must be 10months+ but i can import a puppy from UK as well as a few other countries mentioned in the link i believe. Ideally a puppy would be the best so we can bond from early as well as me watching it grow up to a handsome young man lol. so was wondering if anyone know anything about lando's boxers or any suggestions as in what to do (puppy vs young dog) (america vs UK) i dunno. just looking for some insight.

IMO, they have way too many litters a year, I see no sign of health testing either..A health test IS NOT having the vet check the dog out..This is a list of what health tests should be given, prior to breeding..Also if you are going to be traveling, you might just want to wait until you get back to get a pup or an adult..That's too much stress to put a dog thru...As far as Euro vs American, that's a personal prefernce, just ask tons of questions and get proof of testing on paper

Yeah never a good sign when the breeder site feels like you're shopping on ebay.

From what I have learned, this site is really not for advocating a particular breeder, but my advise is to go on the American Boxer Club website, find a regional club and then call them for suggestions. From what I can see (and the moderators can certainly chime in) Boxerforums does not offer any breeders free advertisement but have a lot of great information on what to look for in a reputable breeder. I find that when you start attending confirmation shows and find a AKC/ABC affliated dog club, you have a better chance of finding someone reputable than internet searches, craigslist, kijiji, etc.

Good luck finding a puppy. There are a lot of reputable breeders out there and it is completely worth it to find one, vice a dog with a bad temperment and health problems. It just may take some time, but well worth it in the end.

Well said Theresa, and yes the best place to start is with your local Boxer club and go from there...Attend shows and talk to the breeders, handlers and owners

Either that or attend some local dog shows or boxer club events. This way you can meet some breeders, their dogs and get to know them with hopes of getting a pup!

Well I just got back from Lando's and I must say I had a very good experience so far. It was a nice small home. We were welcomed by Linda the breeder and Ando a huge beautiful brindle boy and fawn pup. We talked and she explained some of her philosophies and she seems like she really cares for her dogs. There was one that she loved and wanted to breed but isn't going keep because of a small heart mumur so she seems like a very responsible loving owner.She does have a fostering program which I saw some people dislikes but her explanation for it was that she doesn't want to have all of the dogs she breeds in a kennel at her house because she wont be able to give them all enough individual attention which is very respectable. i attached a link with a few pictures. im torn between the two male brindles!!! what do u think haha cute huh?
