my boxer just had puppies. Both parents are registered boxers. She had a litter of 6, @ of which are solid white. I have been told they are rare and to have them put to sleep. I do not wish to do this. Will they be able to have a healthy life and how rare is this occurance?

White boxers are not recognized by AKC so you won't be able to register them. However, I wouldn't "getr rid" of them. Just find them good homes and give them away. Good luck with your pups. Oh, BTW - oftentimes the white ones are deaf. As they get older keep an eye on them to see if they seem to be hearing.

AKC will register white boxer puppies. It is the Boxer club that fights it. You have to write in the number for white in the color area instead of checking one of the two boxes provided on the litter registration. I have forgotten the numbers but AKC will tell you if you call them. Or you can email me and I will find it for you. The reason it is said that the white puppies have to be killed is from the old stud agreements from the Boxer Club. The owner of the stud would require in the breeding agreement that the owner of the female would kill all white puppies born. If you did not sign such a paper, no one can make you kill the pups. Oh, and the majority of white boxers are not deaf. You can tell pretty early if the pups can hear you make a noise. The text books on the inheritance of coat color in dogs states that the white boxer ban is simply fashion. Boxers are much closer genetically to bulldogs than they are to dalmations. And bulldogs have a white variety that shows no measurable deafness over the colored variiety. Enjoy your pups.
