My Lila is pretty petite for a Boxer - she's about 43lbs at ~9months. (It's especially funny 'cause she was the biggest in her litter by about 30%.) This works for her, though - it means she can find new and exciting places to sit!
My Tucker was the biggest of his whole litter. now he is the smallest. But he enjoys sitting in the baby's carseats, sleeping in the rocking chair or ontop of the other dogs which he may not get away with if he was bigger
Same with Lila! She really is just pocket sized. Here's a photo of her in my lap for scale - I'm 5'6". (NOT a flattering picture of me, but it makes the point. Please don't everyone think that I weigh 400lbs...)
We just rescued/adopted our first "pocket" boxer. We'd have 5 boxers in all in the past. Currently at 3. Tank joins our family and is the cutest, tiniest little thing! He's perfectly proportioned only smaller.
Cute! My first boxer, Duke, was a pocket boxer. He was a rescue and was 47 lb. on a good day. He was also fine boned. He ate well, so that wasn't the problem; he was just small. My current boxer, also a rescue, is very different. He's very long-legged for a boxer and weighs around 65 pounds. He's not at all heavy, just a bigger, heavier boned dog.
I'm learning more and more about them every day. I never knew about them, just thought they were smaller - but not THIS small. Haha! He's a perfect gentleman and loves to play and he's very smart! Like all boxers are!
