White Boxer Puppies: Our Policy

White Boxer Puppies: Our Policy

Since we just had one born, now is a good time to share our policy on White Boxer Puppies. B4 Boxers is white boxer friendly, but we actively work to produce dogs that conform to the current Boxer Breed Standard. We believe that a Boxer is a Boxer, and a white one is just as intelligent, beautiful and just as outstanding as a companion as a colored dog. On the rare occasions that we do produce white puppies, we allow them to remain with the litter and raise them with the same loving care as any colored pup gets unless there is a very good reason to remove them. Have I ever culled white pups? Yes, I have, and colored pups as well. The decision to cull one or more pups from a litter is always a difficult one, and must take into account all the pups, colored or not, in the assessment of overall health, confirmation and maturity. I do not believe in letting any animal suffer. When it is obvious that, despite my best efforts, a pup is not going to make it, I do the right thing and put them down. As a responsible breeder I accept that obligation and utilize the most humane means I possibly can to end that life. Do we support the breeding white Boxers? Yes and No. We do believe that there are some white dogs who can be of great value to the overall Boxer gene pool, but we do not advocate the breeding of whites as a rule but rather as a very rare exception. I believe that any...

Looking for Boxer puppies for sale?

Finding a quality boxer puppy for sale can be a real challenge, especially if you are looking for a dog that stands a chance of living more than the current US average of 8 years. Many times I have been asked why boxers die so young. If we take a look at how boxers are bred here in the US versus how they are bred in European countries, it might lend some light on the answer. Here in the United States great emphasis has been put into producing a dog that is beautiful, elegant and refined. Often times a great deal of planning goes into trying to produce litters with lots of “flash” – the white markings that offer such a beautiful contrast to an otherwise plain fawn or brindle coat. That is what the puppy buying population here in the US is looking for, so that is what is produced. There is very little consideration given to the level of intelligence that is being bred into a litter. Appearance is the prime consideration and even in the AKC show ring, judges evaluate everything from the color of a dog’s eyes, to alignment of the front teeth and everything in between, but sadly – there is no routine scoring system to gauge the dog’s intelligence or working ability. Also, the judge’s evaluation of the individual dog does not become a part of the dog’s registration records. The only thing that does is any points the dog may earn toward their championship status. In Europe things are much different. Top breeders are very aware that the Boxer is first and...
