You can try this one...Home - Traore Boxers

I don't have any first hand experience with her dogs but I've known her since grade school and she is a great gal. Her dogs look gorgeous.

Most breeders don't x-ray elbows, since there's a less than 1% incidence of elbow dysplasia in the breed. (Many don't x-ray hips, either, since there's only a 10% incidence of hip dysplasia.) If you're looking at "Euro" Boxers you want to include testing for spondylosis in your criteria, as it's a bigger problem on the Continent than it is over here. (Also, if you're looking at health testing done in foreign countries, take a few minutes to run a translation of the results. I know of one breeder that used to be in WA who advertised her often-used stud dog as having "Good" hip results, when in fact he was rated borderline dysplastic in one hip -- the results were in German, and apparently no one ever ran a translation!)

You could try the Pacific Northwest Boxer Club for member referrals:

Or the Oregon Boxer Club, they also have members in Washington:

The fact that they're producing mixed breeds means they do not fit this forum's definition of a responsible breeder. A one-year health guarantee isn't especially useful for a Boxer, since most health issues aren't detected until after a year (or two or three) of age. While they say that the one male is apparently free of the ARVC-1 mutation, they make no mention of holtering (or any other health testing, of course) -- a negative ARVC-1 test result does not mean the dog will never develop ARVC, and routine holtering should still be performed on all breeding dogs.

They talk a bit about health tests and issues that can happen within the breed but I only see one male has been echo dopplered. What other health tests have the parents had is my big ???

I emailed about that and all the dogs have passed echo dopplered, Thyroid, Vision, & OFA Hips & Elbows. She is willing to show me the results on each one also. She also said none of them have Allergies.

You should also look at their goal for breeding. Are they breeding for the sole purpose to provide pet puppies to people who want to buy? If so, I would pass because they are most likely breeding to make money off the puppies (not a good breeder IMO). Or are they breeding because they participate in conformation or working sports such as agility, tracking, etc and breed to IMPROVE the breed? Are they breeding because they want to produce a future show puppy or working puppy for themselves and then rehoming the others to working, showing, and pet homes? Or are they just selling to anyone who comes and wants a puppy?

I know of one breeder off the top of my head in WA. But.. I don't think she has anything planned until next year? http://jesticboxers.com/index.htm
