Default Anbody Know if there is a K9 Boxer in the US...anywhere?

Title says it all. I'm a Boxer guy from way back and the Boxer is in the working dog group.

I loved my Boxer and am on the hunt for another one, cause my second baby is gone.

But today's Boxer's just don't strike me as K9 dog material, they don't much care to be spoken to harshly for one thing. And not European I mean in the US?

I've heard it said by a trainer of K9's that he could train 3 GSD's in the time it takes to train one Boxer! I would not argue with that assessment at all!

But I don't believe today's Boxers are the same dogs as the dogs that came over after WWII I believe it was, when they got big over here?

Yes there is the occasional IPO Boxr but I want to know if anyone knows of an active K9 Boxer in the US today

Their breeding females are K9s? Doesn't that make it difficult for them to work?

I have seen two Boxers directly from this kennel, and a litter from one of those two. Nice dogs in temperament. One lady I trained with got an IPO1 on her female and bred it to one of their males. Female and pups all tested positive for some genetic issue with Boxers. Not true working material for IPO even though she got through the title at a DVG club....the courage test, the dog ran around behind the decoy and sorta gripped the elbow from what I remember...if it had been a GSD it would not have been treated as generously for points....the dog did AWESOME in AKC obedience....if you want one as a pet or for ACK OB or agility - but IPO???????

I would certainly think so during her cycle. She works part-time I guess.

My girl was 100% American those are the clowns. But to be fair...she did tell me one night when someone was out in the yard. 11:00 pm she was looking out the living room window and went off! Loud barking and lunging at the window! I told her to be quite she sat back down and continued to watch out the window.

The next morning I got to the cars...the doors are open and both car radios are gone! That's what she saw! I asked her if she could describe the thieves but she was pissed and never did!

But to the point ,I had heard Boxers are still doing K9 work in Europe so of course they would use the Euro's. But I wanted to know if there was a Boxer K9 of any type anywhere in the US?

As I heard it takes three times as long to train a Boxer to do K9 work as a GSD. Time is money...just not worth hassle maybe?

Part of that would be because the Females are the Dominate sex in Boxer world.

I saw it one time in Struddell she went off on Gunther BullMasstiff/Pit mix male over kittens!
She thought he was getting to excited around them and wanted to put him in his place. I had to pull her off, I had never seen anything move that fast before!

No one got hurt but wow! Safe to say most Boxer people have no idea! Hence "Boxers and Buddies" no Females out to houses with a Female Boxers!

Your question was if there are K9 Boxers in the US.
Did you mean American lines?

American Lines would be a real surprise! But I'd settle for any US K9 Boxer!

I got close one time but the lead evaporated because the dog was retired. It was on a K9 dog site and Boxers got brought up in the discussion.

I was on a site reading about Milgard Mastiff's (he doesn't like the term Bandogge) anyway he was going down a long list of dogs and there pros and cons for use in breeding a Bandogge.

And when he got to Boxers one of the cons was...goofiness! I laughed my butt off!

Then I looked at my baby girl and thought..yeah I can't argue with that assessment!
