ok so i just recently got my second boxer baby - added him to my one and a half year old boxer :both are male- the new male will be one and is fixed & my other son is not fixed. My first son is a polite man does not hump etc- the new guy is a humper, all of a sudden yesterday my older son started humping the other????i have no idea is this normal?should i be concerned?

There are other threads in the archives here about this but basically humping is more often an act of dominance than a sexual one.  The older one is probably trying to establish his dominance, which I would take to be very normal when adding a second dog to the pack.

Oh its normal, just a dominance one or trying to establish postion in a pack.   I can turn on the webcam at Kash's daycare and he mounts everyone and everything, even the wrong ends.  The only time it is sexual is when a bitch is in heat and they give off an scent that the male picks up.

This is correct.  Dominance issue going on.  I don't approve of it in my house as my younger female does it to my older male. I am my pack leader (I think it is significant in this issue)  and I  tell her in a stern voice, "off of him" and she is starting to think about it when she tries it and I'm around I just give her a look and she quickly hops off.  It is getting less and less and rarely happens anymore.
