Why do I have a feeling this is a bad idea??? My mom really wants a boxer. Now, this wouldn't have anything to do with me, but naturally guess who's going to have her (Mom doesn't like male dogs) when the parental units are on vaca, or work late ect... Everything I read contadicts info on the boxer. I heard they are high energy dogs, but one magazine said they're couch potatoes. Any boxer owners out there? What about shedding? Is it true their goal in life is to dominate the other dogs? I'm hoping this is just a faze, but she's going to look at one tomorrow and wants me to go along.
