hello i have a black Boxer named susie. she came from a black male Boxer and a female brown and white Boxer. you know that the Boxers have a little nose but susie came out with a long nose and all the quality a Boxer has, but her nose. dose this mean is not a pure breed. oh she just had 10 puppys and they do not look like susie they look like an normal Boxer like her parents. IS SUSIE A PURE Boxer???????

<!--ToastEdit--><font face="Verdana" size="2" color="Black"><P>Not 100% of this,, but Is BLACK even a accepted COLOR?????</P>
<P>It may be that DAD was not purebred.. </P>
<P>About the only way you would know.. would if susies breeder had DNA proof on both susies dad and mom,, and you DNAed susie... </P>
<P>That would tell you if the dogs listed on the papers where actually the parents.. </P>
<P>Susie is most likely the result of the 2 dogs you saw that her breeder said where her parents.. DNA would only prove this.. but dad could have been a mix.. or there could have been another sire in there somewhere.. unfotunally.. you descirbe susie as having one, not a accpeted color..and was a result of a breeding of this..  so if that was not a big deal to her breeder then what makes you believe that susies breeder even was concerned that she actually cared that they she met the breed standard as far as head/body/nose shape?  Let alone any concerns over heath problems in the breed.. I would be worried more about that.. now having a litter.. if there are any issues it will likely show up in your litter BTW..</P>
<P>Since you decied to breed susie,  and had dobts she was purebred.. she may be a mix.. but her litter tells you NOTHING.. either she just did not whelp any black pups in the litter,, or the Sire did not carry black..(as it should be BTW)  so the fact she has a "standard" color of Boxer pups nursing now.. tells you nothing about her purebred status.. only tells you about the color genetics she carries.. not her breed.. as far as  her nose.. well if it is too long.. then she may pass that trait on to her kids too.. But thats the breaks.. odds are you may find yourself having problems with people beliving she is actually a Boxer..Wrong color, wrong head shape.. but that is something you have to deal with.. heck if you felt she did not look like a Boxer  or may not be a purebred.. then why did you breed her? </P>

Boxers do not carry the gene for a solid black coat color; if Susie is really solid black, there's another breed in the mix somewhere, which would explain the longer nose.
