I don't think that the North American Boxers are a joke :!:Moravian\";p=\"594 said:North American Boxer is the same joke as American Bulldog. Both breeds has nothing in common with original breeds as bulldog family or German boxer family.

Thankfully, we've progressed past such barbaric measures, and are able to place non-breeding puppies in homes where they will be loved companions.In my breeding era (many years back) white boxers or any boxers with a color defect (white mask, more white color etc.) was immediately put to sleep by veterinarian who was also an advisor for the breed.
You still don't, in North America. In the Group ring, each dog is judged on their own standard, not against the other dogs.Also ... You didn't compete with poodles or any other breed group in a ring.
I know that, and yet I know a few breeders of white Boxers in Germany, so obviously the system is not foolproof.Do you know for example that the rule has been to choose only the best six (or less) puppies will get pedigree and breeding rights to protect the QUALITY in Europe?
My point was, as I mentioned, it is inaccurate to say that all Boxers in Europe are like Boston Terriers. Obviously some are, but there some very correct Boxers in Europe, as well.Maybe from your point of view boxers in Europe seems to you like "Boston Terriers"
And how many Canadian or American National Specialties have you attended?Maybe you should try to attend any European show and than talk... We did and with a success!
That is not a correct Boxer head by any standard. The muzzle should be 1/3 the length of the head - the one I posted is less than 1/4 the length of the head. If you truly believe that head is correct, then I can understand why you are such a fan of the European Boxer.By the way you picked a very good looking boxer head. The muzzle should be proportional, short 1:1, high forehead and long cheeks.
Not a "dream" Boxer - their visualization of the ideal Boxer as described by the standard. Obviously, this is not the same for everyone, as the standard is not entirely specific and does leave room for interpretation on some areas. (And none on others, such as the head, though the dog I posted is a Champion and is far from the only one with such proportions.)each judge has his/her own dream boxer image in head while judging. If you are judge, you have to go by standard not by dreams!
Ah, thank you, so you do understand that the head I posted is not correct. And, as I noted, you can see that the FCI standard and the US standard (both of which I have examined in detail here: www.newcastleboxers.com/standards.shtml) are the same in regards to that head proportion.c) Length of bridge of nose: length of head: the length of the nasal bridge in relation to the skull should be 1 : 2 (measured from the tip of the nose to the inner corner of the eye, or, respectively, the inner corner of the eye to the occiput).
The beauty of the head depends upon the harmonious proportion of muzzle to skull. The blunt muzzle is 1/3 the length of the head from the occiput to the tip of the nose
I'm not sure what exactly this means, especially since there is tremendous variety among German Shepherds.You don't see much differences in English Bull Terriers or German Shepherds because breeders accept and respect the FCI standard.
Well, obviously, that is entirely untrue.THERE IS ONLY ONE STANDARD AND IT IS THE FCI STANDARD.
