I will say that all of the puppies I saw and adult dogs were up and moving well, and didn't appear sick at all.

They were supposed to be all gone by this week. He's rather old. So i don't know if he even up keeps his own website. Recon was never on the site. He says that all puppies are usually placed before they are born. He is close to a military base that recently sent troops out so thats why he ended up having available pups. The white pups were their along with 2 or 3 brown females. I will just stop saying that he is a great breeder and say he's the best that I've visited.

All I can say is WOW!

First of all its against the law in many states for a puppy to be placed before 8 weeks. Many people think because the puppy is not nursing, that its ok to go to their new homes. Thats awesome new for the breeding parents as they do not have to pay to feed them, give them their full shots, and or yet find out about their temperments before they place them with a family. They get yo' money and off to plan the next pocket lining litter.

I have been shadowing my mentors for three years;Owned boxers for a little over 4. There is SOOO much to learn about the breed as a whole before people even decide to breed. How can you breed for Health, Temperment and Confirmation when half the people breeding for it dont know what it is? They dont know why we holter dogs and or why it is very important to the boxer's health to have correct angulation?

But people keep buying their puppies so what gives them any motivation to learn???

Great point HannaBanana. I hope to learn a lot about more about the boxer breed and temperment, and how to raise the best dog possible, regardless of who the breeder is. I believe that it's more about nature than nurture, which is why I don't believe there is a bad dog out there, just the ones that were raised by irresponsible owners who have the wrong intentions and motives.

I see that you are a very experienced user, so I would greatly appreciate any and all wisdom and knowledge that you can share to help me achieve my goal of raising the best pet possible.

Thanks for your thoughts and opinions.

I'm not trying to flame you or your choice of puppy, but in my opinion none of their dogs meet the Boxer breed standard really well. I do not show Boxers.. and I don't judge them either, so take my opinion how you will. But even I can tell that some of their adult/breeder dogs aren't breeding quality dogs.. just by some of their photos. However.. the breeder even admitted that, at least in the case of one dog. Bandit wasn't show worthy. Show worthy, or show quality means breeding quality. That is the whole point of dog shows (AKC, UKC, etc). If he wasn't good enough for the show ring (meaning he didn't meet the standard well enough to compete with other Boxers), you have to ask.. why on Earth was he bred? Any "good" breeder should be concerned about bettering the breed.. which in short would mean breeding healthy dogs that conform to the breed standard. Otherwise you eventually end up with Boxers that, well, don't really look like Boxers. I would definitely consider that breeder to be a BYB. Just my opinion.. I hope you take no offense. Your puppy is absolutely adorable regardless of where he came from.
