Hi there
I am quite anxious to hear if there are any other forum users who have more than 2 boxers. We have all males 7, 3 and 2 months and they get along famously , both of the older dogs have been neutered and we are planning to take the little one when is he old enough. Anyone out there have any words of wisdom.

Welcome to the forum and we'd love to see pictures of your fur kids!  We have two and that's enough for right now.  When these two get older, much older, we will probably get another - but that won't be for a few years at least.

I just recently got my third at the end of August.  Let me tell you, they are a handful.  There would be no way I could handle them all without my boyfriend.  I will say, however, that I love them all and I don't regret getting three.  As a matter of fact, next November or December, once Roxy and Astro are both at least 2 years old and I get all their health testing done (with the hopes that all the tests come back fine), I will be continuing the breeding of Boxers from when my parents bred them.  I am also planning on keeping a puppy from their first litter.

Welcome to the forum. We are planning on adding a third come spring as a play pal for Angel. Mainly as Samson ages (10 1/2) he can't keep up and I'm thinking ahead to the possibilty of something(god forbid) happening to him...If you have room, time, I say why not?  :)

Welcome to the forum.  Can't wait to see your babies!  

We had three for about 6 years but ours were a lot more spread apart in years.  We started with one, added a second who was a rescue and then added a puppy.  We got the rescue as a pal for the first and then got the puppy to help us transition if anything happened to our oldest (who was about 10 at the time).  Our oldest decided she had 5 more good years left so we ended up with three females.  It is a handful with three and the cost is higher but after you get them and fall in love with them there is no way to get rid of one.  We would probably never have three again at one time but they did for the most part get along well together.

I am not sure how it will be with all males but we did have some major fights among our girls with top dog issues.   These happened 2-3 times a year.  Never over food but we did have bloody fights over bones, the UPS man, etc.  When that happens you really need to have a plan to separate them.  If you have young kids you need to make sure they know to get away if that happens.  Our boxers NEVER went after us when they were fighting while we tried to separate them but if you put your hand in the wrong place you could of gotten bit.  We knew what set them off so we always tried to keep control over the situation but sometimes a fight would start out of the blue over a bone on the floor, etc.  If you have never seen full grown boxers fight it is very scary.  Of course they were best buddies right after a fight and went on like nothing happened.   Kissing each other, sleeping together, etc.  was amazing when just minutes before they wanted to kill each other.  Hopefully you won't have this happen to you.  I know that we found out AFTER we already had three females that it usually isn't recommended to put females together because of their dominence issues.   Since our rescue had been badly beaten before we got her that may have had something to do with it.  We don't know everything she went through before we got her, only that she was beaten, starved and abandoned.  She had also went through several adoptions and brought back before we got her.

I have three dogs right know, but i did at one point have 3 boxers. They got along fine, even though it wasnt for very long. I would have 937373 boxers if i was able to support them and had the room  :)

Hi , could not agree more , they are a handful , but they make everyday worthwhile :) I have not yet weighed the lttl one recently , but in attached pic , he was 8 and a half weeks and if you look at the size of his paws , I reckon he will be quite large. His dad was very big , so I guess he takes after his daddy lol
