There are many myths surrounding the breed, especially whites, let me dispell those for you.
1) White Boxers are all deaf - WRONG
is a common mis-belief. White boxers can be prone to deafness, but this
also occurs in Reds or Brindles, or any other breed of dog.
2) White Boxers are not accepted as pedigree - WRONG
will often destroy Whites as they believe they cannot be accepted for
competitions. This is absolute rubbish. White Boxers are just as
accepted at events like Crufts if they meet the criteria, the same as
coloured Boxers. The German Police used to use Boxers as messenger dogs.
Due to the nature of their task, a dark dog was more preferable than a
white dog as darks were less visible when travelling at night. Sadly
this stigma has stuck and some breeders still destroy whites. There is
3) Boxers are aggressive - WRONG
is not a denominator of the breed. Any dog can be aggressive, from
Poodles to Great Danes, it is dependant on their treatment and
4) Boxers are
boisterous - this isn't strictly true or false, again it depends on the
dog. Be aware that the majority of Boxers weigh between 25-32Kg, and due
to their weight can be extremely strong dogs. Boxers also get excited,
and can therefore get a bit clumsey.
