Boxer dogs are extremely unique when they come without markings. But some may confuse; what type of boxer that is? As mostly the boxers are favorite with marking or when they are with fawn or brindle colouring and having the white markings on different parts of their bodies.
Generally, the boxers are considered extremely pure when they are seen in fawn, brindle or white. These are standard recognition of the boxer dogs. In addition to this fact, the markings can be of numerous types, but Boxer dogs without markings are also there in some exceptional cases. Like cats, the boxer has a tendency to keep itself neat and clean so when a plain boxer is with a ravishing glowing skin, it really gives an impressive look.
Marking mythology on Boxer’s body;
Boxers without markings are known as Plain Boxers as well who are normally born with the SS gene. It might happen, if two SS gene holder boxers are bred together. The offspring will come plain and normally without any marking over their bodies. So it is to be understood that the markings are the result caused by the modifiers.
But in this case, there could be an exception and that is the domination of some gene in the genetics. This (s) gene has number of other cub-categories which results in many forms of the white colour coat on a boxer.For the reminding of our readers; the boxers are having an average height of 25 inches and weighing between 55-75 pounds.
The female boxers are slightly shorter than the males. The boxers without markings possess the same sparkling coat over their bodies like their counter-parts with a very nice look and strong muscular bodies. They become even more energetic and agile in their approach if they are groomed in an affectionate environment and are trained as the habitant of the exercise.
Markings are result of the inheritance;
For the general understanding, the markings on the boxer’s body are the result of the genes which are inherited from the parents. One gene is normally inherited by the puppy from each parent.
If there is the non-existence of the pigment cells, the result could be the white markings. The same principle is relevant in the cases of flashy coated boxers or the pure white boxers.’S’ gene is related to the dominant coat colour while the recessive (s) gene decreases the quantity of the pigment cells.
Breeding of Boxer with or without marking;
Sometimes when SSW gene holder boxer is bred with an SS boxer then there are chances that the puppy will be born with markings. It is to be remembered here; the SSW denotes the flashy boxer. Plain Boxer or a boxer without marking is sometimes named by the breeders as the Classic boxer . Commonly, there is a slight spot on the face or there is no spot at all on the facial appearance. Similarly, the toes, legs or the chest area is without or having a very small white coloured markings.
This process is sometimes may also be referred as the co-dominance which is by mixing the two verities of the genes. The recipient of once gene is called as ‘allele’ and if the alleles are not of the same kind, the allele which is dominant will be become prominent. The influence of the second allele will be known as the ‘recessive’ one. Some modifiers also breed in this way to get a very small or gentle white marking or traits resembling to a pure genetically born classic boxer. A genetically born boxer which is without marking if bred, with a flashy boxer will not give birth to any white offspring.
Plain Boxers are equally competitive;
When the puppies are born with smaller markings they can change the color or marking as they get older. AKC (The American Kennel Club) declares the puppy which is fawn or brindle and having now white marking as the fawn or brindle boxer. They’ll waive off the markings in this case. Obviously, the boxer without marking will be carrying the same playful characteristics in themselves; they are absolutely wonderful performers, stunning mates and fabulous fun-lovers.
A boxer without the marking might give a natural look of a real mastiff and if you don’t take it as the exaggeration; the boxer without marking really looks like feudally majestic.In recent years, the plain boxers or the boxers with no markings over their bodies have proved themselves really competitive and have won many prizes.
Although, still it is a bitter truth, the plain or classic boxers still come in minority in the rings. From a spectator’s point of view, a flashy one is usually paid more attention than a plain one. But if plain boxers are also given the proper training and their temperament is refined, they’ll be standing equal with other boxers. Gone are the days, when fawn or brindle colors with markings played vital role in show-quality boxers.
So we can say, this controversy has no footing; the plain boxer dogs face real difficulty in finishing the championships. But still the colour prejudice is needed to be eliminated from a judge’s point of view. This will ultimately flourish the liking of the plain boxer dogs among common boxer lovers. Even markings would become irrelevant.
Always go for pure Boxer breed;
In the end, a very sincere suggestion is hereby given to our readers and particularly to those who are interested in such an individual boxer having the coat without marking at all. There are some reported cases in which the dog sellers usually advertise that they have the boxer breed with rare one dominant colour. Especially, the black ones who are normally bred with another black dog to create whole black. Seriously, those are not at all pure boxer breeds. They are also desirous to sell it to you on higher rates,
so a careful approach is required for a buyer. There is no evidence of the gene of a pure black coated color of boxer. Apart from the genuinely recognized fawn and brindles, there is a trend nowadays as the boxer lovers are interested in tantalizing plain boxers for their grown popularity.
