As I said in my intro, I'm a brand new Boxer mom. He's actually Boxer/Pit mixed, but resembles more of the Boxer side of the family. I've done some research, but I'm still left with a few questions. Is it normal for a Boxer to be very thin? I've read they aren't very "beefy" dogs, but he's quite bony. If not, any suggestions on a good dog food? He's currently on dry Pedigree, since that was what his previous owner had him on. Also, he has the oddest coloring. I know brindle is a common color of both Boxers & Pit's, & I've recently read about reverse brindle, but he's orangish-red & black striped. I think it's gorgeous, just wondering if that's a relatively common coloring? Are Boxers more prone to allergies? He seems to have hot spots on his neck & tail. Just trying to be an informed mom. Thanks in advance!
