i been wondering through the forums and did a search to see if something came up to have my questions answered and i have not came up with anything or maybe im just missing it, i was looking in breeder feedback and don't see anything.


So my question is:

my dog is 1yr 4 months and im looking to breed him, what would be my first step
1. how would i locate another person to breed with
2. how much money does everyone charge for studing him out
3. he has papers and all that
4. is there a website or anything to contact people?

and if theres anything else i should know that would be helpful before i turn my dog into durty birdie.

Hey there, it's not actually permissable to breed Whites as they don't conform to the breed standard.  There are loads of other things to consider before you breed, which I'm sure people will point out, but most of them are pretty much waylaid by the fact that you can't breed MacDiesel anyway.

Tis the way of the world!

From the above link - ( and sure Jennifer (Newcastle) has other health related info)

(1) Some of the white pups, with little or no pigment in their skin, must be kept out of the sun because they sunburn. This is similar to a condition observed in Collies which is called "Collie nose."

Sorry to say... along with everyone else. Though he may be a wonderful companion and just all around perfect... he's not... as far as breeding goes. Please do the right thing and have him neutered. You are also suppose to wait till they are at least 2 yrs old so you can have all the proper health checks done to even see if your boxer is a good candidate for being bred. Unfortunately, since he's white... he doesn't even get that far.

Didn't read it all but there is good info on here too...

I read you say he has papers and all of that...what papers? I didn't think whites weren't able to be AKC registered because they are not the breed standard.
AKC allows limited registration only for whites.

The issue of breeding whites really isn't with the health of whites. It's the fact that they do not meet the boxer standard and since only those boxers which best meet the standard should be bred, whites should be excluded from breeding programs.
Standard??...Why is standard so important? The standard is a blueprint of what boxers should look like and if that blueprint isn't followed, boxers won't look like boxers. It's that simple. If you breed ANY dog that doesn't fit the blueprint of that particular breed you take the first step to irreversably changing that breed. If boxers are being bred without being to the breed standard, we are going to have two different types of boxers. We will have the "show" boxer that obviously will look like a boxer because it has been bred to the standard. Then we would have the "pet" boxer, which probably wouldn't look much like a boxer at all in the long run. We already have differences in the "show" and "pet" boxer as far as minor faults and color differences. I look at my Maddie and I can pinpoint several faults due to irresponsible breeding.
Responsible ethical breeders are concerned with improving the breed and will only breed those boxers that best represent the breed. White boxers are boxers, and other than a higher incident of deafness and the possiblility of sunburn, are as "healthy" as any other boxer. They are also susceptable to all the health issues that can affect any other boxers.
This is a "hot topic" but it's really rather simple:
Whites do not meet the standard therefore should not be bred.  :wink:
