Hello from Northern Michigan.  We are a first time boxer family, but we have done a lot of web searching regarding boxers.  We have a couple of friends that have boxers and they absolutely love them.  We actually started looking at boxers a year ago and today we decided to finally get one.  His name is Trakkar pronounced like "Tracker".  He is a white boxer, mom is brindle and dad is fawn.  He's the only white pup in the litter.  We know there's a risk of deafness with white boxers, but we just couldn't pass him up.  He's so adorable and loves to snuggle with us.  We will start off, deaf or not by training with hand/sign signals.  I've heard that this form of training really works well.  We just can't wait until he comes home.

Here's our new family member.  We will be bringing him home in little while.

Oh, he's BEAUTIFUL! How old is he??  Welcome Trakkar and family!  He reminds me so much of our Mic when he was littler...what an angel! You won't be sorry...they are SO worth anything you have to go through...there's nothing better then a boxer in the family!

Congratulations!

We are about 40 minutes South of Traverse City near the town of Cadillac.  He's about 6 weeks old right now and already starting to eat puppy food.  He does still nurse off his mother, but actually prefers food and water out of the bowl.  He's quite big for only being 6wks old.  When I first saw him, I was thinking more like 10-12 wks old.

Well, since picking out Trakkar, we debated all night and even this morning about getting a second boxer, one of his brothers.  We feel that we will eventually end up getting a second one, so we are debating on just getting one of his siblings that he's familiar with and going through the potty training and other training at one time.  We would really like for them to be buddies with each other as well as our two boys.  Yes, that will really be a workout if we decide on two, but oh I'm sure it will be fun. :lol:  

Anyone have an thoughts getting two right away??????
