We are looking to get a boxer and was wondering about male vs female. Also from my understanding some female breds when going #1 in the yard causes the grass to grow differently is this true with Boxers.
Male/female has nothing to do with the effects of urine on your grass. The grass will get urine burns where they go, doesnt matter what sex or breed you get. There are products to help that, bit INO it is part of pet ownership. If I was that worried about my grass I'd be in trouble with the clan I have here, lol.
I have had boy dogs and girls and have loved them all. So I think you should talk to your vet and decide. If you have them neutered or spayed before they reach sexual maturity--Either or would make a great pet. My dearest friend has had two Boxers, Bubu and Katie and they were both great dogs.
They are high energy though, so be prepared for providing lots of exercise for him/her!
Happy Holidays and have fun! (please don't cut off the ears. They look so cute with floppy ones!)

As you can tell by the name we have a BoxerBOY. When our female fawn boxer died my husband (who only had female boxers in the past) wanted a brindle male as a change. I asked a few breeders what the difference between the males and females might be. Many said that there's no difference. But the breeder we got our guy from said she found that the males were more "in your face". To be honest, I'm not sure if it's just a personality difference or a sex thing but she was right. Our female was more independent and easily crate trained. As a puppy her crate was outside our bedroom door but when she was allowed to choose her sleep spot she prefered to sleep on the couch in a different room. From the beginning our male has been a shadow. The crate was a disaster. He hated it. He is two years old now and okay in the house on his own. He follows me from room to room and at some point in the night he leaves his bed (which is in our bedroom) and sneaks up on ours. He's sweet natured and well socialized but we have had the occasional issue with some other males getting aggressive with him in the park. That male dominance thing. I would probably choose a female at this point since I never worried about fights when she was off leash. That's just me though. I think the boxer breed is wonderful and you will fall in love with either.
