It’s been a while since we’ve made an appearance :). We’re back and I thought I’d give an update.

    Oscar is going to be 4 in June. I can’t believe it. He’s a big lug and spends most of his days sleeping and snoring and farting. He’s topped out around 205# and is healthy and happy. He’s made friends with a bunch of people and dogs at a local brewery. He’s still pretty skeptical of new people but they usually win him over with handfuls of pepperoni.

    We’re actually thinking of adding a puppy this summer!! I’m not sure if we will or not, but we’re talking about it. The breeder we got Oscar from is breeding currently a beautiful female I’ve loved. I’d love to have one of hers. Oscar is intact and I know there’s a lot of info on here, but any issues bringing puppies into a new home? We’d want to get another male.

    Glad to be back :)

    Awesome pictures! Oscar looks great. I have been following Oscar's growth chart on one of your previous posts, as it very much aligns with the growth of my boy (always withing a +-3 lbs range). Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks!!!! His parents were 220/175 so he really landed right in between. I think finally he’s pretty much settled with growth and hasn’t changed much in the last year weight wise but filled out in his chest and head.

    Good to see you! Oscar looks great. I've always had males living together, but mine have always been neutered. I think that you're biggest concern might be when puppy hits maturity. I know some people never have a problem and some people do when the dogs come into their temperament around two years old. I hope someone with more experience keeping intact males answers your question. I just know that in rescue we hedged our bets and suggested females to homes that already had males and males to homes with females. But again - those dogs were all altered and they were boxers. What is your breeder's opinion?
