 Jazz is the ideal boxer, aside from her coat color. She is the resident family dog and "puppy raiser". She is confident, happy, obedient, and the signature wiggle butt is made famous by her. I purchased her from a friend for my daughter's 1st birthday (that was my excuse anyways.) I had pick of the litter since it was a friend who had the pups, and through a very intensive selection process, I chose this white girl. I wasn't looking to show or breed at the time, just wanted a really awesome family dog with a super solid temperament, and Jazz fit this criteria to a T. Aside from her great outgoing happy personality, she is a stunning dog to look at. She literally stops traffic. Everywhere we go with her, people just have to stop and comment on her beautiful and unique looks. Jasmine is NOT part of our breeding program, and we at Everlast do not promote the breeding of white boxers, but realize that whites make AWESOME pets,  and couldn't imagine life without our little "Nem & Nem " (as our daughter used to call her).

When not taking care of the family, Jazz is my "Queen B" puppy raiser, helping teach and socialize puppies both at home with any babies we may have or at puppy obedience class. She is very fair and "educated" in the language of dogs, and keeps everyone in line. She is also my obedience demonstration dog. I have done extensive obedience and trick training with her and she puts on a show wherever we go; as well as in the classes I teach.

White Boxers

Boxers with white markings covering more than one-third of their coat - conventionally called "white" Boxers - are neither albino nor rare; approximately 20-25% of all Boxers born are white. Genetically, these dogs are either fawn or brindle, with excessive white markings overlying the base coat color. Like fair-skinned humans, white Boxers have a higher risk of sunburn and associated skin cancers than colored Boxers. The extreme piebald gene, which is responsible for white markings in Boxers, is linked to congenital sensorineural deafness in dogs. It is estimated that about 18% of white Boxers are deaf in one or both ears, though Boxer Rescue organizations see about double that number. In the past, breeders often euthanized white puppies at birth; today, most breeders place white puppies in pet homes with spay/neuter agreements. White Boxers are disqualified from conformation showing by the breed standard, and are prohibited from breeding by every national Boxer club in the world. They can compete in non-conformation events such as obedience and agility, and like their colored counterparts do quite well as service and therapy dogs.
