This is a question for everyone with a white boxer. or anyone else who may know the answers.  We got our boy almost a month ago, he's a white boxer that we rescued.  My question is does anyone else's white boxer get pink when he's tired?  Since day 1 we noticed that at night before bed or just before he decides to go for a nap his snout and eyes get pink, he looks exhausted.  We've been to the vet since we rescued him and they said he seems to be in great health so I am not worried, I just thought it was a quirk and wanted to know if anyone else sees this.  During the day when he's awake and alert he's all white.  He gets pink with excitement too but I figured that's pretty normal, my friend has a white pit bull and he does that too. Just curious.

Templeton is the same way.  IMO you have nothing to worry about because (correct me if I'm wrong) I believe it has to do with the temperature of their body.  Congrats on the new addition.

OMG Blitzen is almost hot pink by the end of the day. Esp if we have had a long walk and a lot of play. Donner has a little pink in the nose area and that used to get real pink when he was a pup. I think he outgrew it caus I dont notice it anymore. IMO noyhing to be alarmed about. :D

LOL~~Even my white, chubby whippet, Angelina gets pink! Especially after playing grab-a$$ with Bibby!!  :lol:  :lol:  (I don't think she likes being referred to as "chubby"...)

If Sadie is active, he's definitely pink.  Around her eyes almost turns red.  A little rest and water always does the trick!

I have noticed even on Angel as she has a couple pink spots around her nose, when she gets tired, they get very bright..
