I would like to get another boxer
« on: May 17, 2007, 02:28:51 PM »
I know I am way ahead of the game in looking now for a breeder when I won't be ready to actually get another puppy for another year or two.  But I found these two breeders in my area and I was wondering if anyone with more knowledge and experience could look at the pages and give me some feed back.

  I don't see any health testing info but maybe I am missing it or don't know what to look for....

Not much info on the breeding programs on either site. I guess you'd have to contact them & ask...

You really cannot judge a breeder by its website.  I would scan thru Jennifer (newcastle) website for list of questions to ask potential breeders.    I would first start to contact them via e mail and ask them about the health testing.  Just because they do not mention it on the site, does not mean they don't do it.

Also just because  they show, does not mean that they automatically health test.  So the questions and getting to know the breeder are your best bet.

Never to early to start.  Also I highly recommend attending a show to see dogs and meet breeders that you may be interested in.

Good Luck!!!

Just to note, the Georgia Boxer Club is holding their Fall 2007 in September.

I don't see any red flags on either site. Breeder #1 has a whole bunch of dogs listed, I'd want to know if those are all current, or if they are past and present, maybe some are co-owned.

Aside from that I'd visit Jennifer's site and start looking at the list of questions. Start considering what other kinds of information you'd like to know about a breeder.

It really is NEVER too early to start talking to breeders! Good job for planning well in advance!
