Black 7/8 Boxer Hybrids

Our Black 7/8 Boxer Hybrids are the result of crossing our black and white 3/4 Boxer stud with our purebred Boxer dams.  in recent years we have noticed a lot of interest in the Sealed Brindle (AKA Black Boxers).  The original Black Boxers of history were found to be the result of an outbreeding to a Schnauzer X Bulldog cross.  The founders of the early Boxer show bloodlines elected to not accept these dogs to be shown as Boxers.  Therefore the black coloration of the Boxer is considered an unacceptable color by AKC and other such show breeder standards.  Therefore they have been culled from the Boxer bloodlines over the past century or so.  In more recent times people have developed a liking for the now unusual black colored Boxers.  The currently available "Black Boxers" are the result of continuous breeding of the darkest reverse brindle Boxers.  This practice has created what is called a sealed brindle coloration.  The sealed brindle color Boxers have so much black overlaying the base fawn coat that they appear to be black in most lighting.  It is our belief that this is not the best practice in maintaining healthy well bred Boxers.  Boxers already have a rather long list of known problems that are all to prevalent in the breed.  These problems were caused by the premature closing of the breed to outbreeding in the early development of the breed.  Excessive inbreeding and line breeding done by show breeders over the past century has left the genetic diversity of the Boxer far too narrow and the same negative genetic traits are inadvertently repeatedly bred back into the breed.  By narrowing this breeding to just the Boxers that carry the extreme reverse brindle coloring these genetics are tightened even more.  Upon coming across our stud Loki who looks and acts like a Boxer, carries genetics for the Black coat and is not a purebred boxer we saw an opportunity for change.  Loki is the result of breeding a purebred brindle Boxer sire to a Black Bull Boxer dam.  We plan to keep the best of Loki's pups that maintain the highest black coloration to breed back to unrelated Boxers and Boxer Hybrids to create a bloodline of Black Boxer looking and acting dogs that have more genetic diversity than the currently available sealed brindle purebreds.  We hope by doing so we can create a Black "Boxer Like" dog with better health and longevity than the "Black Boxers" that are currently becoming so popular.  Of course all the pups will not be the sealed brindle (black) color and there will be some that are more "normal" colors.
