Boxer Pups

40 posts in this topic

White Boxers are sweet and loving dogs, but that's only part of the reason I want one. They just don't have the intelligence of a brindle or fawn.

Also boxers will go insane if neglected.

EDIT: I do think white boxers have less of a tendency to "bully" or be "stubborn" though.

My rescues were only about $100 each and they were about 3 months when we got them. They are both great and don't have any emotional damage, one is just super hyper (Chow/Shephard Mix) and the other is super lazy (Boxer/Rodesian Ridgeback Mix) so the whole getting them in pairs so they play was BS. When I looked around pure breads were anywhere from $300-$1000 and often times it's fake anyway. The first one I got was the last of his litter and locked up all day because he didn't have his shots so he couldn't play with the other puppies. The second one was wandering the streets of Mexico starving, sick, and nearly dead when the adoption agency took it to California. After I adopted the second one they even paid all the vet bills to get him healthy. This is going to sound terribly gay but it makes me feel really good inside when I look at them knowing that I saved their lives and I think they are happier, more loving dogs because they know it too.

I guess the moral would be not to rule out rescues because if you look hard enough you can find a puppy you'll like.

I have a brindle and a fawn. If you're in the Charlotte area check out Blue Ridge boxer rescue. We just got the fawn puppy for $250.

Yah I looked at Blue Ridge Boxer. Several of theirs were 325$ and a couple of mixes are 150$.

I agree most "purebreds" aren't purebreds. I've seen a lot that have pit in them, some that have lab in them. I'm going for something with heavy jowels and short back legs.

That's why I'm being very picky and looking for someone I can trust instead of just going by some papers because I don't want my boxer looking decidedly non-boxerish a year down the road.

But thanks for the help everyone. I may end up going with Blue Ridge if I can't find a good rehome. One thing on my side is I'm patient.

I want one badly, specifically a fancy fawn. Anyone know any good breeders that won't charge an arm and a leg for a purebred?

Papers and pedigree don't matter, I just want to be able to trust the people I get the pup from.

I know some good dudes in the Charlotte area.

I also said they make sweet and loving dogs, and wonderful pets. But they don't learn as fast.

I have a cousin in Goldsboro who breeds Boxers. I recall him posting on Facebook that he had some for sale. He's a reliable guy. I'll try to find the post and let you know how much he wants for them.

I have a cousin in Goldsboro, NC who breeds them and has 4 puppies left. Their tails are already docked and their vaccinations are up to date. He's asking $250. Let me know if you're interested and I'll put you in touch with him. I can vouch that he's very reliable and is square dealing.

Just in case woodcooked's cousin doesn't work out, you may as well fill out an application now for Blue Ridge. They have a waiting list, and the lady told us that getting a puppy can take upwards of a year sometimes.

Growing up, I always had AKC registered Collies. First a Female then a Male. Both were great dogs.

Now, I'm never buyin another dog or cat as long as I live! Breed, make model isn't as important to me as the pet itself. I spent big bucks for an Old English Sheepdog, because the ex-fiancee ABSOLUTELY HAD TO HAVE ONE! (Red flag went up when the Breeder said the Father was too mean to see.) But went I tried to tell her that, she was like "The dog has such beautiful markings, I have to have him!" I ended up having to take it to the Vet and have him put down. It turned vicious toward her. (Little did I know it had good taste!)

I had a neighbor who ran a Chow Puppy Mill out of his back yard!

Pound Puppies or Kitties are the only way to go.
