I have a beautiful male boxer who is 1 yr old, and I have a pretty 7 month old female boxer, they are both full blooded but I do not have papers for them. I got the male pretty much from a rescue situation from amish people who said they didnt "bother" with his papers. The females breeder said she would send them to me and changed her number..I thought about breeding them in a about a year or so because they are both amazing examples of the breed and I know some people who would like puppies. BUT I had this lady b*tch me out the other day while I was talking about it, and she said no one would buy them bc they wouldnt be registered and went on to tell me how I am overpopulating the world with useless dogs and other nonsense...She seemed a little nuerotic to me so I didnt take it to heart really. But what do you think? I dont think one litter of puppies is going to overpopulate the world by much. What do you think?Answer Question

You would not be wasting your time at all. My mom used to breed Boxers and they are wonderful dogs. She sold all of hers without papers! My mom only had one Boxer that was AKC (one female) the male she used wasn't papered and neither was her second female. There was NEVER a problem selling the puppies . . . . EVER!. I would say "go for it"! You are alsways going to have people that bitch and complain about somebody who is breeding dogs, espcially when the dogs are not papered. I think they can just get over it! As long as you are breeding responciablly (make sure dogs have shots and what not) then you should go ahead and breed them. Finding homes buy selling these puppies isn't going to be a problem w/out papers and I am speaking from experience!

(CONTINUED FROM ABOVE) When we bred them, my mom made sure they all had shots, they were de-wormed and they were vet checked. She sold the puppies for $450.00 each. Again this is w/o papers. Just because somebody tells you : So basically if no ones bought the puppies you would be going into debt or if you would have to sell them for say 200 because people do not want to buy unregistered dogs. Doesn't mean you have to believe it! I also know of a lady who bred dogs and some of hers were papered (akc) and some weren't. She ended up in the end selling them all unpapered because she found that the Unregistered pups sold just as well (and for the SAME AMOUNT OF $$) as the registered pups!
