Raw-fed breeders in midwest?

Hi,
I have had two boxers in the past, both shelter dogs. They were amazing dogs and definitely the reason I've fallen in love with the breed but they also had some heredity issues that I would like...

Hi guys,

I used to be pretty active on the forums many years ago.

I had two white boxers, Delilah and Felix. Sadly, they have now both passed away due to tumor related issues. Delilah passed 9...

Keep him on a leash or a fenced in area?

He'll have to be on a leash if you ever want to try to desensitize him to cows but from the looks of it- I don't think he can ever be trusted around...

Honestly, it doesn't look bad to me either. When I got Felix as a 3 month old puppy, Delilah (6yrs) did the same thing. Very snappy and overprotective at first. Eventually the rude little pup...

Personally, I would never agree to use a choke or prong collar again. I used a prong collar thinking it was better than a choke chain but didn't know at the time it would only reinforce her negative...

I would seriously consider raw, if I were you. I knew someone on another forum that had a dog with a carbohydrate intolerance. Instead of agreeing that a raw diet was the way to go, her vet wanted...

I used one a long time ago with Delilah because she is dog aggressive and really pulls and lunges when we see other dogs. The prong collar didn't stop her from pulling at all, it only reinforced her...

That's a great story. No doubt, Valant's calm attitude showed her that he was nothing to worry about. Yawning is a calming signal among dogs.

I think my next dog will be a Standard Poodle or a Blue Heeler. I have to be patient though because I will wait for a rescue and I'd like a puppy.

Once I own my own home and have some land I'd...

I think basket muzzles made specifically for boxers would be best. Many normal muzzles tend to cover the nose of boxers, since their snouts are so short.
There are many on ebay and you just have to...

Well, according to your ticker he is still 3 weeks away from being 4 months old... I really wouldn't have wanted it that early but its too late now.

When I introduced Felix, as a 12 week old puppy to my 7 year old Delilah- she acted the same way. She was snappy and overly "dominant". Eventually he learned his place and she relented.

First I think it's important to say that thin is much better than heavy for puppies. Boxers are lean dogs and it's very common for pups to go through "ribby" stages. As long as his spine or hip...
