I have a boxer; she isn't huge, but she's 70 lbs.  She's a giant lovebug who hides when somebody knocks on our door.

I am so sick and tired of hearing people call her a pit bull, say I shouldn't have her around my baby, say she's vicious, etc.

In a perfect world people would be a bit more educated about dogs.


Please, have a look at my big, vicious dog (who, by the way, is named Mushy because she has a mushy face lol):

Some people believe everything is a pit. So cute by the way! She looks like a lovebug.

I don't have a dog, SO was attacked by one as a child & refuses to let us have one. But I LOVE big dogs. If I could get SO to cave, I would probably get a Great Dane or something along those lines. :) 

And I HATE when people are uneducated about dog breeds. I used to have a Dalmation/Catahoula mix & everyone thought she was a pit. -_- I love pitties, but she was not one!

She is so lovable looking.  Boxers always have the best facial expressions.

awww....is she a full boxer? The one pic where she's looking directly at the camera, she looks like she has a mastiff face.

Totally looks Boxer.....Only the uneducated would call her "pit"....I think she's adorable.  Boxers are sweet dogs by nature, so why not have one around a small child.

Boxer are so good with kids. I have never met a mean one. I have known some wild ones but they weren't mean just a little extra happy to see people and get love. I don't understand why people confuse boxers with pits I don't see the similarity in them personally. Plus pits are usually great family dogs when they are raised with a loving family they typically become loving loyal family members.

Meh.  I don't care what people think/say about my dog (s).

I've had everything from pitt/shepherd mix to itty bitty chihuahua.  I only get irked when someone else's dog is being a complete asshole and charges me on my evening run and I get "I'm trying to tell you, he would NEVER bite!  He is a black lab!"  Wtf, then why did I move my arm up just in time, dumbass?  I guess he is a black lab so I imagined it?  Lol

 

Also, keepyour golden from running into my front yard trying to eat my chihuahua.  Or we'll be having words.
