Hi, I'm new to forum. I had three boxers. Pyper, was the first. She was a flashy brindle female, 11+years and had Cushings' Disease and DM. She passed away in 2016. It was not long after I got Pyper, that I ended up with her daughter Tess, a fawn and white female. I had the two of them for many happy years. I just lost Tess to stomach cancer on Christmas Eve day 2018, she was 11 years 1 month. Then Chuck, a palliative rescue, just passed away on 25 Feb, 2019 - shortly after Tess. He was around 9.5 years. He had thyroid problems and Cushings' Disease. I had him for just over a year, but I am happy that I was at least able to make his last year one that was full of love. All three dogs were awesome.
I'm pretty heartbroken and have not been without a dog for over 12 years. So its pretty strange to be at home alone right now.
I would like to get another boxer, but for now, I am happy to be part of a forum where people know and love this great breed.

Hi there Tessamie,
I know, with Boxers big personalities they are sorely missed when they're gone. You've been through a lot of loss recently. I hope you're doing OK. Maybe talking with other boxer owners can help.

Welcome to the forum Tessamie. I am sorry for the loss of your boxers, they sound very loved. Our boxer is a flashy reverse brindle. He turned 5 y ears old in Sept. I can hardly believe he is 5. He actually belongs to my adult daughter who lives at home with us. I am older and wanted my own boxer for when she moves with him, so I started looking. HIs breeder no longer breeds and it was very difficult finding another reputable breeder. I also always wanted a standard poodle..no shedding no drooling. I did find several reputable breeders. While looking for both I was contacted by a breeder that she was faint to be in town visiting a friend and delivery a puppy so she would bring 2 along so I could see her dogs. Well you know what happened. I now have the boer and a standard poodle. He has been a chore for me to train, while very smart he is very excitable and that makes things much more difficult. He wants to please but can hardly contain his exuberance . He plays harder than the boxer so they don't play well. Our boxer is a very laid back guy. I hope in time you fill your house again with the love of a boxer....or poodle lol
