Well first welcome aboard. And second just "chill out!" Get her checked out by a vet if your really concerned? But if you worry is because she is quite and smallish ... LOL she is "faking!" Now time will tell of course but in my experience ... the most boring of puppies can often turn out to be a Great Dog! That would be my Struddell, White Boxer ... when I went to chose a puppy ... she climbed out of the plie od puppies climbed into my lap and fell asleep? WTH, I was not impressed but I took her ... and I had no regrets! She was faking being boring! :)

Thank u for your reply she has had a health check but I think I will get her checked over again she is so tiny and thin but in my heart I believe I can get her to be a happy healthy dog
LOL yeah I heard the exact same thing about Struddell! And growing up she was actually kinda bony looking for a bit? But I fed her an amount of kibble and canned that seemed appropriate and just ignored my friends that said ... "She looks too thin?"

As long as she is active and playful she is not starving! And once she adjust to her new surroundings ... you will wish she was sleeping! My Stru was a tiny thing growing up but at about year 3, I think? She was 65 lbs of solid muscle! Lean and trim she was actually pretty big for an American Line Girl but next to a Male Boxer (al the ones I saw) yeah they dwarfed her,.:)

Well I would definitely stay away from Grain Free. But I would not feed a "boxer," and certainly not this one any "Large Breed, Kibble." A 85 lb Male Boxer is a pretty dog ... granted.

However the Boxer is classified as a "Medium Breed Dog," not large. Large Breed Food has to much calcium for "smaller breeds. Large Breed Dogs are to name a few Great Danes, Bull Mastiffs, English Mastiffs, Newfies, Dogo Argentino's, American Bull Dog's etc, etc a small one of those is 100 lbs.

Too much calcium can interfere with the growth plates of smaller dog's. Boxer's don't need it and this cutie ... may get up to 55 lbs in about three years? But nowhere near 75 lbs much less 85? 65 lbs top and that would be a reach. But that is what my Stru weighted, although she looked like 55 lbs?

LOL well she sounds, par for the course for the girl's? My Stru, when I got her was pretty un -dynamic? She climbed out of the pile of puppies, crawled into my lap and fell to sleep? I wanted the male standing on top of the puppy plie barking his head off. But all the males, were chosen. So it was a girl or keep looking?

Well she was faking that calm and quite bit. That lasted about a day maybe two? And after that it was welcome to crazy town! And yeah she was on the thin side for maybe three month's? But I would feed her kibble and canned and there was alway's kibble in a bowl. So she ate what she wanted. And her and Gunther my ( Band Dawg) got along great.

I don't remember when she started to fill out? But she did and at some point just started to add muscle? In year three I think she was a solid 65 lbs? I was stunned cuz I swore she was a 55 lb'er? But she always kept her deep chest and tiny waist ... Open Desert Bunny Chasing Fit, and yeah she never caught one but she never stopped trying!

Congratulations and Welcome Aboard. :)

Hmm, I think I see how? At the bottom of the, Box where you input your response, there is a smiley face with 3 dot's, hover over the three dot's and it says, insert. Click on it and at the very top it opens up and at the very top it's say's media. If you click on that it opens up and say's "Enter media URL," past the file there from your PC and it should insert it into the text Box, I think?

But I am not sure? I just mostly post direct URL links from Website's and that seems to be a little different? Maybe someone that actually understands what they are doing, could help out? :)
