Ready for a Boxer (I think)?
First post here, hope I'm following the rules.
Looking for some advise: strongly considering getting a Boxer. While I've never owned one before it has been on my list forever.
Have 3 kids in the house, ranging from 1 to 14 years old.
A couple of concerns:
* Compatibility: I have a 4 year old male (neutered) Boston Terrier. Completely friendly & good natured (although hyper as can be). Indoor / Outdoor.
Any thoughts as to how they are likely to get along, how to introduce them, etc.?
Would the Boxer being a Male or Female make a difference?
* Activity level: I'm hearing mixed opinions as to how active these dogs are. My yard is not that big, and not sure that I can do a lot more than walks / jogs on a daily basis.
Would the dog be miserable?
Thanks for any words of wisdom on these, and if anyone has any links to the proper procedure for crate-training, etc. - it's been a while, time to review the basics.
P.s.: and if anyone knows of a good breeder / source in the S. Florida area...
