what's wrong with white doggies!?

:mischief:i notice in the parks a loat of rottweilers,doberman,german shepherd ,noone is terrified! when visa's in the park some people are terrified! in fact it is 50/50 some people love her or hate her!we know a few dog's owners they trust visa because she played with their dogs already! i think maybe she looks like a pittbull !

I don't think it is just her colour it seems to happen with Boxers in general. People just don't understand

Re: what's wrong with white doggies!?

when brewsters out walkin me i find that people wouldnt even come up to brewster as they say that he had got a mean look about him but then the people who will come up to him and you can see in that there still not all that sure about him so when he jumps up to say hello they still back off no matter how much you tell them he will slobber you to death so from what i can make out its just the way of the boxer that no one knows what there like untill they get to know one

I too find people just love Poppy but then she's still a puppy. I really cant see how anyone would think a boxer looks vicious, yes they're quite big and heavy chested but I think they have the cutest faces. I'd be more scared of one of those little ankle biter things who i find do tend to be vicious, usually the bigger dogs are big softies.

I am the opposite too. Both my girls get a lot of attention. When I just had Sasha, people still made a fuss of her and now I have Tizzy too, they both get completely fussed over!

I had my old girl when the DDA came out and I got a lot of negative comments then- people would ask me why she wasn't muzzled etc, but that was definitely ignorance.

We have a lot of boxers around here though :cheering:

Re: what's wrong with white doggies!?

I have gotten both kinds of comments.Some think she's wonderful on sight.Others are scared.I always make sure to tell people that she's a BOXER! I mean,some people don't even have a clue what kind of breed she is!Weird.I can see she's a boxer.Why can't they?????? I also tell them,she is NOT an albino,and yes,she can HEAR!!!Just like anyother dog,when she wants too.
People tend to assume they know stuff,when they don't.I would love Chloe if she was albino,deaf and a pitbull,so what difference should it make to them,right?! I like the lady we met the other day.She said Chloe was sooo beautiful.and how did I keep her clean?!She should see her today!She is sooo muddy.We will be needing a bath,but it's still raining.

Re: what's wrong with white doggies!?

I had a man at a Game Fair telling me White Boxers are rare aren't they "NO" I said, well they tend to be deaf "No ,
more than others" I said then he said well they are mad aren't they "SO are all Boxers"I said he then gave up. Gixer does get a lot of attention as people don't know what breed he is! We were at a fun dog show last week, he was the only Boxer there and the judge was scared of him!!!

Re: what's wrong with white doggies!?

Fancy having a judge at a dog show being scared of dogs...

We get a lot of looks and stares from people, some have said are they bulldogs???? :thud:ah NO!!! Boxers....

I do get some children asking of they can say hello, to be honest don't see too many people when we're out walkies and that's the way we like it! We meet up with some of our doggie friends who have known them since pups...I'm known as the lady with the 2 white Boxers!!!:lol:

Some times I'll go for the wind up, tell the unenlightened that Daz is an Arctic Boxer, he changes colour with the season. "But it's not winter" they say, "It is where he comes from" I say. :lol:

Re: what's wrong with white doggies!?

Yes someone at work asked me if Poppy was mad. I said yes and she said white boxers are. How can anyone think they are totally different because they are white? It doesn't make sense, its like saying brown haired people are completely different to blondes or redheads!

I was also told that Poppy was a proper British bulldog....What?

I quite often get asked what breed Katie is. They look at Rosie and say oh a Boxer, but whats the white one then when I say she is w white Boxer they look in disbelief and say "Oh I have never seen a white Boxer before" as if I am talking a load of cobblers!

Re: what's wrong with white doggies!?

I tend to get that a lot too... 'what kind of dog is that' they will say, then closely followed by 'ah, so she is deaf then'... Grrrrrr.... yeah she is but her mum and dad were both white and none of them were deaf, its pot luck!!

Anytime am out a walk people dont get the chance to run and hide for cover anyway, Heidi is off demanding to be pett'd, so they dont really have a choice lol...

Re: what's wrong with white doggies!?

I have had some people say want a beautiful looking dog Reg is and how friendly and how nice it is to see a white boxer and at times i see the horror on some peoples faces thinking that he is some mad aggressive dog because he is on a lead or is mistaken as another breed.

Talking about being mistaken for another breed we were out with Reg (before we got Ron) and this lady came up to us and asked how old was our dolmation (this is because of his black spots) and why he had a flat nose???? My partner says next time this happens tell them he was chacing a car then it stop thats why our dolmation has a flat nose.LOL

That worries me a little to be honest - I was under the impression that breeding off whites was not recommended, let alone two whites together? Perhaps I am mistaken :dunno:

Re: what's wrong with white doggies!?

white boxers are deaf, due to their lack of pigmentation and suppression of blood supply to the cochlea (inner ear). White boxers should not be bred since the genes responsible for deafness in whites are inheritable. Breeding dogs that carry the extreme white spotting gene (white boxers have two copies of this gene,) will cause pigment dilution in all offspring and increase the incidence of deafness throughout the breed.


So if breeding 2 Whites the chances of producing Deaf Boxers will be increased...While I personally have no problem with White Deaf Boxers, I cant understand why someone would run the risk of introducing a full litter of Deaf babes....How many people can honestly say they would love to own a White Boxer that is Deaf.If Whites are readily bred with Whites i can only forsee a lot of beautiful deaf pups ending up in Rescue Centres...This is only my opinion, but i have done a lot of reading on The White Boxer.

Re: what's wrong with white doggies!?

It's just lack of knowledge that's all. I get comments all the time like 'Their rare aren't they, white boxers?' or 'What breed is he, he looks like a boxer but he's the wrong colour.'

Breeding of whites is a big no, no because of deafness. Also if they have blue eyes also there is more chance of them being deaf.
Some breeders even today *cover your ears Casper honey* cull their whites. Apparently they are nearly always bigger than their coloured siblings and can hog most of the milk etc to the detrement of more money making pups and they don't fetch as much money as the brindles or fawns (reds).

The thing is the more flashy the parents the more likely you'll get white pups in the litter and most breeders that show prefer the flashy dogs so hence they'll never really eradicate (thank god) white boxers.
