Hi, My name is Jeanene...and I am the proud mommy to two beautiful new boxer boys...my sil has had boxers for 30 years now and there are 10 in all in our extended(but geographically immediate) family...these two are sons of the best boxer I had ever known until I met them...their names are Mic and Indy...Mic is a check boxer...mostly white with two large brindle patches and lots of black spots...Indy is a classic fawn with a black mask and a few white flashings...I am here in search of helpful advice and to meet other boxer lovers and pick their brains!(So to speak) Other then the challenges inherent in raising two pups at once...we are raising two male littermates...which has been no problem thus far...and my sil had assurd me that they had raised two males close in age and after fixing the one, they were fine...of course, now I am hearing less positive things about raising littermates and especially of the same sex...I have seen positives, so far...what I am hoping to find here are some very concrete tips we can use to make this the best possible situation it can be...what to watch for...maybe how to figure out who is the dominant dog(they behave equally alpha right now, although Mic has always seemed more dominant...which poses another concern, as he would be the logical choice for neutering...since he's not eligible for full registration anyway...being a check.) We have read about how to support the dominant dogs authority and how that can lessen tensions...everyone knows where they stand...do you folks know anything more that could be of help? We are not aspiring show people or breeders...we just love our boys and want to do right by them...they are very differnent in personality, so far (12 weeks today!)
Any input is appreciated! I am looking forward to getting to know everyone!
