While you are looking for that puppy to fill that empty spot, there are a lot of people out there that will help you. Some breeders are just great about helping you out and then some others are there to just sell you a puppy. There are people that will buy several puppies if not the entire litter from a small breeder and then sell those puppies at high prices to people by "false advertising". They will advertise that the pups have champion bloodlines but truly they don't. They can't produce or show the parents to you as the potential buyer, or they may give false information. Ask to see the pedigree papers and the registration papers on both parents. Basically, watch out for the puppy mills, pet shops, or large breeders selling lots of puppies of several breeds and always have puppies to sell. These people can also be licensed...for what or by who?
Know that your breeder is taking their puppies to the vet for shots, dewormings, removing dewclaws and docking tails. Some breeders do this themselves, even the shots. Some puppies never see the vet while they are with the breeder. Ask if the breeder will take the pup/dog back if you can no longer keep him/her.
As you know from your experience, looking for the right boxer puppy for yourself or your family is about as important as buying a house, a vehicle or picking out the college or making a decision about a career/job. This puppy that you choose should be part of your family. You will expect certain things from your pup, but he or she, of course needs to learn and be trained so both of you will grow together and be as one would say...be on the same page.
Your pup is like a child, and needs to be trained in the path you want him to go.
There are scammers out there that are trying to get your money, so be careful.

Not so "RARE" Boxers
Don't let anyone tell you that black boxers are "Rare", They aren't!! They have been around for a long, long time. Check out black boxers info website about black boxers. They just aren't as popular as the fawns or brindles. Sealed black boxers are actually reverse brindles where the black striping has blended together. They are classified as sealed brindles. They are registered with AKC as brindles. You can see that they are not rare by going into Google and type in black boxers, then click on Images. You will find a lot of them, just as you would if you did it with Yahoo or any search engine. Also you can find a lot of ads for boxers and many have the black boxers.
There are also a lot of boxer breeders who have litters of black boxers in many states: Alabama alone has at least 10 breeders that I know of. There are also some in Georgia, Tennessee, North & South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Missouri, Ohio and Mississippi, just to mention a few. So, you can see they are "NOT RARE".
As defined in the dictionary: Rare:
1. seldom seen or found 2. not happening often, unusual
Think about it!
Mahogany & Deer Red Fawns
Usually the mahogany fawns are a little harder to find, but they are out there and they are not rare either. Be careful of people claiming that their dog or dogs are mahogany. Also watch for breeders claiming that their puppies are mahogany. In order to have mahogany puppies, one of the parents would have to be a true mahogany. To have a full litter of mahogany puppies would probably be unusual or "rare", both the sire and the dam would have to be true mahogany. Don't be confused with a mahogany and a deer red fawn. The deer red is just a bit lighter than the mahogany- both are still fawns.
The white boxers are getting to be more popular. Very rarely do I have white boxer puppies. I do my best not to have them, but things happen to where I do have some in a litter. Some white boxers can have just the normal or average healthy conditions like all the other boxers. About 20% to 25% of ALL boxers are born white. White boxers are NOT Albino. There is a higher incidence of deafness when a boxer is white ( approximately 18% of white boxers), not all are deaf. Deaf boxers can be trained using a variety of methods, including hand signals, sign language, flash lights and more. Training a Boxer, hearing or deaf, requires time, patience and understanding. White boxers can sunburn easily and they should also be spayed or neutered. All white boxer pups are registerable and come with a LIMITED registration for AKC.
