My goal is to produce boxers that conform to the breed standard, with health and temperament being of equal importance (because they should all be long-lived house pets, regardless of quality). I have had only one litter thus far, of having produced white boxers, which tend to have more health issues than the boxers of color. Many show dog breeders produce white boxers which do not conform to the standard. Don’t get me wrong, I think the white boxers are beautiful dogs and they do make wonderful pets, which can be use in your sporting events also. I evaluate my pups at birth and as they grow. All these pups are certainly eligible to be shown in obedience, agility, tracking, and other activities! In fact, I encourage active participation in these sports, as it is a load of fun!
You can expect to pay more than what you see advertised in your local paper, and possibly more than the national pet store chain. (I have seen the pet store pups are extremely high priced) But you also have to keep in mind that, unlike the pups in the newspaper or pet store, I've put considerable time, money in vet services, quality dog food, and effort into the parents against health issues, and I stand behind the health of the puppies I produce. That is something you will NOT get from a puppy mill, pet store, or hobby breeder or a backyard breeder. I realize that the investment a buyer makes is nothing compared to the emotional one, and so I do all that I can, to make sure my puppies are as healthy as can be, so that their human family can expect to get a long lifetime of love and enjoyment.
I am advising you now, because some people expect to buy a Lexus for the price of a Kia. Therefore, please do Not support the puppy mills by purchasing a pup/dog from a pet store.
My vet checks each pup before I will release them to their new homes. They also will receive their first set of shots which is given by my vet. You will have 72 hours to have your pup vet-checked, per contract. This is like a second opinion, and for your satisfaction that the pup is healthy. Sometimes an issue may arise between those two vet visits which can be treated and general considered minor. Many breeders out there do not take their pups to the vet. Some puppies may only see a vet once before they leave their litter mates. Many breeders give dewormings and shots to their pups to save a “Buck”. But how do you know for sure what was really given to the pup? If the breeder is cutting corners to save money, how do you know they didn’t cut corners again by not giving a shot or diluting what was administered to the pup or may be not giving the full dosage? I take my pups to the vet because I care about my puppies and my dogs. A breeder may treat the pup/dog for the wrong thing where the vet knows what to treat.
Sometimes you could purchase a puppy from another breeder. You received a pup, sometimes very healthy, other times very thin, and may be with no vet issued shot/worming record. Watch the attitude of the vet when you bring that pup to him/her with or without a vet issued shot record. You can learn a lot.
My goals will increase as time goes on. So I can add to this later.
My purpose is to see the delight and joy in the face of our new puppy owners that receive an AKC healthy, purebred boxer puppy from us.
