I did a search and didn't see anything, so I apologize if I missed somethig...  But why do some white boxers have spots?  Porter has several spots and my stupid neighbor saw us on a walk and was all "oh, you got a boxer/dalmation mix, how nice."  The vet said he's purebred, as did the people I got him from.  Plus i have seen other whites with spots...  Thanks in advance.   :lol:

Just pigmentation in the skin... Delilah has gotten more spots as she gets older.
Flashy colored boxers also have spots on their white patches sometimes too :)

I'm gotten the dalmation comment too... bah.

Ok maybe stupid question...I have had the same comment walking these two.  But the last lasy that came up to me said something about spots mean there is German in the blood.  Is this true?  I could not find anything to support this.  Sorry Laura I don't mean to take the thread over.

Cheryl, I have never heard about the "German" thing, I know Angel & Flick's pedigrees and there are no German's in their lines, so I think that lady may be wrong on that..Angel has a ton of spots on her belly as well...It's just  with our Whiteys they just show up more :)

I thought it was because my bf is a fire fighter and Lola REALLY wants to go to work with him everyday so she's pretending to be a dalmation :wink:

Guess I was wrong :oops:

Personally, I love the spots (and firemen)!! It seems as if Gus' spots on his white chest came over night!
