Hello everyone I am new to forums hehe and I was just wondering how long can a boxer puppy be left alone for, because in the mornings I am at school and my parents are working. So this means the puppy would be left alone for about 7 hours. Is getting a boxer puppy not a good idea until summer vacation? Someone plz help me.

a young puppy shouldn't be left alone for very long at all...They say 1 hour per month of life- so at 8 weeks, the most that puppy can hold it is 2 hours..and that's pushing it.  I would recommend waiting until summer vacation because then you would have more time to work on housebreaking and training as opposed to spending the day at school.

Okay thank you very much I guess I have to wait until summer :'(, but it's for the best.
It may take you awhile to find a good puppy from a reputable breeder often there is a waiting list.  Please do not get a puppy from a Back Yard Breeder or Pet Store.  There are a great number of Boxers that are in rescues also, so you may want to keep that open as an option.
