THE MAJOR DIFFERENCES BETWEEN
NORTH AMERICAN, BRITISH AND EUROPEAN BOXERS


Let's examine the heads country by country....

UNITED KINGDOM


Typical heads of good type





Virtues in the best heads from the United Kingdom ...
  • Good rise of skull
  • Good width of muzzle
  • Good ratio of muzzle to skull
  • Well shaped expressive eyes
  • Correct lip placement
  • Good depth of muzzle




The British head is very typy and can be picked out as a British head anywhere in the world.

The best dogs have very good balance of muzzle to skull, well shaped expressive eyes and have good lip placement and enough chin.

The heads are much cleaner than they were a few years back and the skin over the head is tighter.

Departure from type in some heads...
  • Excessive loose skin on head
  • Excessive wrinkling
  • Heavy flews
  • Loose eye rims
  • Excess padding on muzzle
  • Too large a head for body - unbalanced
  • SMALL NOSES and pinched nostrils - (a BIG problem)
  • Narrow mouths & small teeth
  • Too undershot

The skin on many heads is not tight fitting, and some still have very loose skin on the top and sides of the head with deep wrinkling.

Some dogs have flews that are very heavy and deep and this tends to pull the eyes down showing the haw. This is acceptable if the third eyelids are pigmented, but would ruin expression if they were unpigmented.

Most British Boxers have a very small nose, often with pinched nostrils and subsequent breathing problems.

The muzzle although it can look wide, can just be covered with heavy thick skin, and underneath the bone is not as strong as you would expect.

Correspondingly the mouth is not as wide as it could be, and the incisor teeth are very small.
