INTRODUCING: Nova and Chevy, boxer mix puppies. They are 4 1/2 months old. Nova is mostly white and Chevy is a fawn color. They are still growing but should weigh about 40-50 pounds when grown. They are great dogs with wonderful personalities. They play well with everyone including other pets. They have short hair, so grooming will be a simple bath and brushing. They are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines and micro-chipped.
ABOUT THE BREED: The boxer is an extremely clean dog and is somewhat cat like in his or her self-grooming routines. They are incredibly easy to housetrain and, when given the opportunity to get outside, learn within a week or two. The short, dense coat does shed and regular grooming three or more times a week with a bristle brush or grooming mitt can help decrease any hair loss around the house. Some boxers are prone to drooling, so having a fairly large water area with the appropriate non-carpeted surface is recommended.
Another trait is his or her use of growls to show affection or to “talk” to the owners. Some boxers do this a lot, while others are less vocal. It is important to understand this is a contentment and playful sound, not aggressive or protective. Barking is generally not an issue with a boxer but when they do bark they are serious about protecting their space, family or property. Boxers can be trained to be guard dogs but will need little, if any, training to be very good watch dogs.
