What is the difference between a brindle and a reverse brindle?  I think I know but not quit sure.  Is the reverse darker?  I'm thinking I want my next baby to be a brindle with a black mask.  But right now I'd just like to know the difference in the two.

On a brindle you see the fawn or darker redish color with black stripes. On a reverse brindle the black stripes are closer together which make it look like the stripes are of a fawn color.

ha-ha! i know this one now :) i had the same issue a while back because what I was told was a reverse wasnt the case. A reverse brindle is a brindle that is so dark that you either A) cannot see any fawn stripes on the coat to make the appearance black or B) a coat that very little tiny amounts of fawn show through. Essientially it looks as if the boxer is black, but that isnt the case since boxers do not carry a black gene. The black appearance is strictly from such a heavy brindling that it overtakes the fawn coloring in the dogs coat. hope this helps :)

My first boxer Buck, was pretty dark, much more so than Angel. Angel is a true Brindle, much lighter....Here's a pic of Buck so you can see....Also Annette's gorgous boy Voltaire, I would consider a reverse...And they do lighten some as they get older, Bucks' baby pics, he looks soo much darker......

Thanks everyone!  I thought that was it but sometimes it's hard for me to tell the difference.  Sometimes what I think is a brindle others say is reverse.  And Willow, Buck was gorgeous!  Thanks again everyone!

Wow Buck is gorgeous.  I'm going to wait a couple years before getting another boxer but I have my heart set on a brindle, preferably kinda dark, that looks like buck/voltaire/odin.   So beautiful.

I love all the brindles, each time I see one I think that is waht I want next.  Its been 8 years since I lost Rascal but I think of him all the time, and sometimes will call Kiah Rascal by mistake.
