Default Looking for a pup -Northwest PA

Hello, I am looking for my first boxer puppy. I have seen lots of pictures of boxers and they seem to range in size and shape. How do I know what the puppy will look like all grown up?

I am looking for one that doesn't get enormous- one of the smaller ones. How do you decide between male or female?

Thanks!

There is no promises on how a pupppy will turn out, if there was breeders would be in heaven. Couple things.

Male v's Females - that is a personal choice most boxer owners will agree that they are very different but some like the females and some like the males. So if there is a boxer you fell in love with or have been around you that has helped you make the choice to get a boxer you may want to try to get that sex because if you fell in love with a large lazy male that sleeps all day on the dog bed and then plays with the kids at night before sleeping through the night you do not want to purchase a female that will colapse her crate and bounce off your walls running a hundred miles an hour lol..... There are exceptions to any rule. Males tend to be more protective and once they reach full age less hyper. Females Tend to get into a little more trouble they can tend to be too smart for their own good and sometimes can be shy.

8 weeks old is a good to evaluate a puppy to see what they will look like at full grown a puppy at 8 weeks can reflect how the puppy will look confirmation wise.

As for size at full grown you can tell by the size of the parents, and size of the puppy within the litter and size of the puppies paws.

Also females are going to be smaller then males if you are looking for a smaller puppy and maybe get the runt in the litter. Good luck...

What I would do is have a look at breeders near you, maybe go to a few shows make a note of what kennels are doing well and what lines you like the look of. Then look into whether they have any champions this will give you an idea if their dogs are true to type. Then look at the health testing. If they don’t health test run a mile.

Whether you want a companion or show pup the above is a good way to start your search.

Good luck
