History Quicks


The white Boxer is not rare, nor is it an albino. About 20-25% of the population of Boxers are born white which can be traced back to the introduction of stock imported from England to Germany during the development of the breed. Genetically, these dogs are either fawn or brindle, with excessive white markings overlying the base coat color. White boxers are no different than their colored siblings, however because of their lighter coat may be more sensitive to sunburn and a small percentage are born deaf in one or both ears. White boxers should be BAER (hearing) tested.
