My boxer is about a year old. We have two children. One of which is actually big enough to play with him. I feel guilty that he has to be the only dog when he is so sociable and loves to play with other dogs. We have been communicating with a lady on craigslist who has a female boxer who is 2. I know the male/female dynamic for dogs is a lot better for them so they don't fight. My husband thinks it is just going to be another headache, but I think our dog would feel a lot better with a friend to play with when he is in the yard. We let him in and out during the day to keep him from overheating and so he gets some time with us. He seems happy enough, but I just want him to not to feel lonely. Does anyone know if the Boxer breed does better with playmates and what are the pros and cons of having two boxers. Thanks!
