I love boxers! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif I have a female, fawn, 1 year old boxer named Nikki. She is very skinny and we can't seem to fatten her up(probably because she runs so much). We got her from a boxer rescue program and when we got her she had kennel cough and infected lips from gettig into the disinfectent in the kennel. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/frown.gif What we didn't know when we got her was that she was pregnant! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif She had six puppies on June 28. They are gone now and I miss them so much! One of them lives down the street, though. Nikki is very healthy now and her coat is the softest I've felt on any boxer. I love her lips! She is my baby girl and I don't know how I ever lived without her!

How good you were to give her a home even though she was in such tough shape! I wouldn't worry about fattening her up! I have seen very few "fat" boxers, and she's surely a healthy girl now! Give her a tummy-rub for me, and I bet she loves you every bit as much as you love her!

Thanks Karen! I will give her a belly rub for you!

Hi, i love boxers too. i have 2 female boxers and one of them is real skinny like you said yours is. i cant help but think something is wrong but weve had blood work done that revealed no problems. she eats like a vacuum cleaner. lol. i love my girls lips too, they give such a sappy sweet expression.

BoxerLover

Raynie,
How old are your boxers? What are there names? Fawn or Brindle? Nikki eats like a vaccum cleaner, too! I love boxers and I want to breed and raise them. When Nikki had pups it was so fun and exciting!

Have you had her checked for worms?

hi again boxerlover, i have 2 fawn females.
lady victoria 111 (tori) is almost 9, we got her as a retired breeder when she was 4-1/2. she is the stocky one, very sweet and protective.
gazelle is 2-1/2. (the boney maloney) we adopted her from a lady who had allergies and i think she couldnt handle her. we took her to obediance classes and now she is mellow and so sweet that she has a pathetic look to her.lol
i'll look foreward to hearing more about your boxers as well.

Oh Raynie, how I do love these situations of "adoption". It just makes my whole day when I can read these turnaround situations. Bless you and thanks for sharing with the rest of us.

There are 4 boxers in the agility class I am attending now with my aussie. I never thought of boxers in agility but they are doing pretty good. Just thought I'd let you boxer people out there know that boxers seem to be gaining popularity in agility.

teena,
I have had Nikki checked for worms. She doesn't have them. It's probably just because she plays so much and runs so fast. She's not SUPER skinny, but just skinny.

Hi!
Nikki does not seem like an agility type of dog. I am going to try to get involved in flyball with her next summer. Me and my nieghbor (who is going to help me) went to a flyball tournament and talked to owners about getting involved in flyball. Well, every time we mentioned BOXER, they said, "Boxer? I don't think you want to start with your boxer, they aren't good flybal dogs." http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/rolleyes.gif http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/mad.gif I told them I guess they don't know Nikki very well then, do they? She would be perfect. You should see how FAST she is! I guess they'll be changing their attitudes when Nikki's team beats their dogs! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/tongue.gif

i think a sleek type boxer would be great for flyball or agillity. gazelle is just like nikki, she loves to run and jump. thats how she got her name!

BoxerLover
11-14-2000, 08:52 PM
Raynie,
That's awesome! Do you think you'd ever want to get involved in flyball? It is really fun! Well, I've never actually had a dog compete in a tournament, but I've been to some and I know a lot about it. Nikki's got a lot of excess energy, and I think flyball would be a great outlet for that energy. Is Gazelle like that, too? Anyway, you and me have a lot in common, so I'd love to hear from you again! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif

11-15-2000, 11:02 AM
boxerlover, it would be pretty cool to get gazelle and/or my boston terrier involved in either of those activities. they both have so much energy. unfortunately i dont think there is anything like that right near by where i live.
do you know about the "boxerworld" message board there are lots of nice boxer people there with loads of info. my name there is sweetpotato (thats what i call gazelle. i dont go there all that often though. here is the address, if it works, (it looks strange to me but i used copy & paste) if not just search boxerworld. talk to ya again. http://216.55.5.229/cgi-bin/Ultimate.cgi?action=intro&BypassCookie=true

Raynie,

Gazelle is a great name for a boxer...just wanted to tell you that I think it's SO fitting http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif There's an adorable little female boxer with floppy ears that meets up at the dog park I take my dogs to. Her name is Pheobe but I think she looks like and acts like a Gazelle.

My family also loves boxers!! We have 2; 1 3year old female fawn and 1 5.5 year old male brindle. And boy do they make beautiful babies. We can't imagine life without them even if they hog our beds and laps and chairs and couches and...well, you get the point.

Hi guys...

I have a flashy brindle boxer. Her name is Sassy Sara Leigh. They're sooo funny aren't they?! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif

Sara, however, has the grace of a bulldozer--I don't think agility is for her! lol

hi,
i have 2 boxers; a male named Castro and a female named Jojo.
my Jojo is pregnant and she should be expecting any time now. hopefully, she'll deliver right on 1st Jan 2001. any whelping tips and pretty names that u could suggest?

BoxerLover
12-26-2000, 11:01 AM
Hello Querida! Boxers are beautiful! Some whelping tips I have to offer are let the new mommy do all the work. It's kind of gross, but the mom will eat everything! The sacs, poop, blood, etc. It is gross, but that's what they do in the wild, so it's natural. Another thing is to get a whelping box. If you gan get a wooden one with guard rails thats great, but if you can't a carboard box will work. Dogs like to give birth in confined places so they feel secure. Also, dont let Jojo sit on the pups as she might do. After all of the puppies are out, you will need to take her out to go potty because the process of giving birth will take about six hours, depending on how many pups she has. there is alot of other very, very important things that yourvet will tell you, like how many pups Jojo is going to have. We named our pups Dotty, Buddy, Saide, Petey, Brooke, and Roxy. When they were adopted, there names were Cloey, Buddy, Saide, Tito, Maggie, and Abbey. as you can see, Buddy and Saide's names stayed the same and they live together. Good Luck and give both of your boxers a big hug for me!

Well-breed boxers are supposed to be 'lean.' They have a high metabolism - my female and male both are thin - 'lean' and the vet says that they are suppose to be. I feed them constantly and feed my female extra when she is pregnant and lactating - she is still thin but the pups are fat and plump -HEALTHY. Boxers are a high energy breed and should be thin. FAT boxers are more prone to Cancer, heart disease, and other problems. I find it hard to believe you got a pregnant boxer from a rescue - I thought they spayed and neutered all of the animals they adopt out. I know what you mean about the soft lips. Boxers' lips feel like a horse's nose to me - I don't know if anyone has ever felt one but it feels like crushed velvet. Hope you are enjoying your boxer. Go to my web page if you want to see some puppies - Look for June 2001 litter.
