Boxer Puppy

My fiancee and I are looking at dogs and I was curious if anyone here owns or has owned a boxer before. We would both like a dog that doesn't shed very much and is very playful and loving. We've also heard that some boxers have an issue with drooling. Any and all information on boxers from owners/previous owners would be appreciated.

Good breed. I would prefer an American Bully to it but they are still a good choice. Protective, smart and fairly low maitenance.

Great dogs other than the fact that they have horrible gas. So bad in fact that the pills that we bought for him had a picture of a boxer on the label.

I need some of those pills you mentioned. Tell me more about said pills, do they actually work?

High quality food = less gas. My boxer farts often but rarely stinks.

Thank you, everyone, for responding with your testimony. This is our first dog, so we want to make sure we get the right puppy for both of us.

Thank you sir, I have read the entire post. From what i can tell, all previous/current owners seems to think they are the greatest dog out there...of course, their opinions might by slightly skewed. I'm hoping the one we get will make us feel the same way about the breed. Thanks for finding that and posting it.

Just curious, what kind of "high quality" food are we talking about here? How much does HQ food cost compared to the norm...I know nothing more than the standard bag of Iams or Purina.

There are many threads here that discuss good dog food. I would give Innova, Canidae and Timberwolf a look. Bunnytrdr is an expert in this field, so do a search through his posts for some advice.

As far as cost goes, if you do your research, find a good food that your boxer can eat (some have allergies) and feed the correct ammount listed on the bag, high quality food will be similar in price to grocery store foods like purina or iams. The quality is so much better, you can feed less and in the the long run, you reach a cost equilibrium.

If you have easy access to a park and have the committment to taking a boxer out 3 times a day for a good work out, as well as all the trips to go potty, an apartment is OK (landlord willing). To avoid the housetraining period you can also consider rescuing an adult boxer.
