Hello, I adopted a Boxer named Flloyd two years ago. He was 18 months old when adopted and 85 lbs. The gentleman who gave me Flloyd also gave us purebred papers. He is now almost 4, and he is 110 lbs, although he is not fat, he is also very tall. Are they suppose to get this big? He is great with my two small children, and loves the cat. Thanks for your help!
The only 110 lb Boxers I have ever seen have been overweight due to a thyroid problem. I have never seen a proportionately large Boxer anywhere near that weight category. I would love to see pictures of your boy. Alicat is a Boxer breeder. Hopefully she will see your question and be able to let you know.
I believe the standard weight of a boxer is 60-75lbs. Unfortunately, it seems the "average" person wouldn't know an overweight dog if the dog sat on them! (Same goes for overweight cats) I have had friends tell me that their pet isn't overweight-is just big boned, or extra tall, or all muscle (that seems to be a favorite). But when I actually see the pet in person-yeah...he's fat!
According the the American and Canadian Kennel Clubs, an adult male boxer should stand between 23 - 25 inches and the shoulder. There are of course larger and smaller dogs out there, as there is no size disqualification in the show ring for boxers!
You have enemies? Good! That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
I have a male boxer that is 2 1/2 years old and weighs 100 lbs. the vet says he is just a tall lean and long boxer. he is not overweight. In fact I took him to see the vet due to feeling like he was underweight. But the vet assured me he is a very health and happy full breed boxer but Yes there is a Taller longer boxer out there.
