I dont think I have ever seen a Fawn with this much white. Almost looks like a cow. My girlfriend is considering getting her...

Re: Have you ever....

OMG -- I'd jump on the chance to own her! She's a beauty & what is known as a "checked" or "parti-colored" Boxer! :love:

But... what Heather says is true. Usually pups that look like this are a result of poor breeding. When you see pups like this... a lot of the times one or both of the parents have more than 1/3 body white (or one may even be a white Boxer - which is a no no). So... I'd let your friend know to be wary.

Re: Have you ever....

I love the flashy ones too!   My Dixie's mom was all white and not a white or flashy pup in the litter.  She produced three fawns, one reverse brindle, and the rest were brindle.

Re: Have you ever....

She's very cute, and perhaps she is a result of poor breeding (even though we have no evidence to suggest that) but there are a lot of boxers on this forum that are a result of irresponsible breeding that have made fabulous pets and are valued members of their households!

And yes I totally agree J&O 100% however shall someone be *purchasing* the dog from a breeder IMO best to really make sure they are legit - thats all.  If you look at my post I said *usually* a result.  Since there is no info on if the dog is a rescue, from two Ch. Parents or what not, its inconclusive.  However a sad fact that a majority of mismarked dog or odd irregular patterns are a result "most" of the time from one parent being white and poor breeding.   I dont get blinded by puppies, some do, I think I have heard way too many people battle health and temeperment issues that could have been avoided.   Yes regardless of  where they came from I am sure they make fab pets, but why support something (bad breeding) if you dont agree with it?   (if the said pet is being purchased)

On certain topics, I won't sugar coat things, but will put them in my perspective not to be critical or to attack, but informative - thats all  :lol:

I love this description  :)

Not sure of her background and her breeding...   I would tell your girlfriend to find out more info.

BUT she is adorable!  I love the "cow" look on her   :)

Re: Have you ever....

It is ok to say that she is a cute puppy..because she is. Here on the forum though what boxer puppy isnt cute though?  :wink:

We all have at some point not done any research when getting a puppy and most of us had tragedies happen due to health or other issues. It really is a catch22 b/c we want these dogs to have loving homes, but we dont want to put money in irresponsible hands. I would def suggest that your friend do her research on the breeder and the parents. I hope everything works out for the best for everyone involved and this little lady finds a wonderful home.

Re: Have you ever....

She is NOT buying Tink. She is doing a trial this weekend and if all goes well Tink will be given to her.

Re: Have you ever....

It looks more like a boxer then our Sammy.. Our Sammy has a long nose unlike Lexie who is 100% boxer.. :lol:

Anyhow, I'd go with the boxer, I think it looks cute!

Aww... she really is adorable! So is she previously owned or something? I say this b/c you say if all goes well, "Tink" will be given to her? That's cool. I hope everything works out for all those envolved. If I wasn't already bringing Nico home soon (I hope), I'd take her in a heartbeat! ;)

Im not to clear on the story. I guess this guy she works with has a male and female, obviously neither fixed. Anyway, they had puppies and there looking for good homes. They say there not trying to make money on them but I dont think this is the first litter. Maybe a BYB I dont know. My girlfriend is bringing her home for the weekend to see how things go. IMO I dont see what a weekend is going to do, shes only 10 weeks. Shes had alot of dogs before but never a boxer. Im trying to talk her out of it...I already told her that I see myself rescueing her in about a year...

Sara, I thought you were bringing Reeko home??

Hmm -- that's too bad. I'd hate to see the poor pup suffer b/c your friend was going through 'puppy fever.' I hope everything works out for the best for the little girl. If I could, I'd take her! ;)

*haha* Oh... I'm sorry - I should have been more clear. I am bringing Reeko home, but I've okayed it by Cindi that I'm going to be changing his name to, Nico (pronounced just like Reeko -- Nee-Ko). :)
