Yeah what part is "boxer" - I don't see that at all!

They are both longer haired dogs - if genetics holds true for dogs as in cats a Shorthair dog with a longhair dog produces all shorthair dogs (who are carrying the longhair gene). Boxer's don't come in longhair!

Anyone explain dog genetics?

well good thing you didnt give up. You finally got it! The mommma was a st. bernard and daddy was a boxer. Buddy looks almost identical to his momma MEELEE and BOB took his color and marks from His daddy Keiser. Sorry i didnt post last night but the storm knocked out my internet.
That is SO insane because I could have sworn they were at least half Pyrenees!

i dont begin to pretend to understand genetics, but thats the way it worked out, all 12 puppies had long hair, bob was the only one that was colored like the dad. The mom actually had light brown on her ears, as does buddy, but its so light that its hard to see unless you really look.

ummm...Boxers can't be white either...

This from the AKC Boxer breed standard

Color
"The colors are fawn and brindle. Fawn shades vary from light tan to mahogany. The brindle ranges from sparse but clearly defined black stripes on a fawn background to such a heavy concentration of black striping that the essential fawn background color barely, although clearly, shows through (which may create the appearance of reverse brindling). White markings, if present, should be of such distribution as to enhance the dog's appearance, but may not exceed one-third of the entire coat. They are not desirable on the flanks or on the back of the torso proper. On the face, white may replace part of the otherwise essential black mask, and may extend in an upward path between the eyes, but it must not be excessive, so as to detract from true Boxer expression. The absence of white markings, the so-called "plain" fawn or brindle, is perfectly acceptable, and should not be penalized in any consideration of color. Disqualifications Boxers that are any color other than fawn or brindle. Boxers with a total of white markings exceeding one-third of the entire coat."


I think the daddy was different than the one they 'saw' or 'assume' bred the mom...As somebody else mentioned, short hair IS dominant; out of a litter like this, maybe one pup would have come out with a medium length coat. And if dad was a Boxer, none of those pups would have been white, because White is a disqualification of BOTH 'said' breeds that these pups parents were!!!!!

It's not that they "can't" be white, it's that they shouldn't.

Boxers can have white puppies. Although they aren't up to the breed standard, there are white boxers and predominantly white boxers out there. A good majority of white boxers usually come out deaf.

Also genetics are just weird when you mix breeds. A client of our clinic did a breed swab test and her dog who is 28lbs [about 5-8lbs overweight] came back as Husky/Mastiff with some other breeds thrown into the mix. On looking at her she's black and tan and you'd think she might be a sheltie/dachshund cross or something. Not to mention she's tiny, compared the breed mix she's supposed to be.

However, as mentioned short hair is dominant over long hair in dogs. What does the rest of the litter look like? Is it possible the mom was bred to more than one dog? Because you can have siblings who have different fathers.

i never said the dad was white. I said bob took after the dads color, bob is brown with a black mask and white marks. and i dont care what genetics should be, i know what was produced with the litter. and the only other dog that was around the momma dog was a 12 year old spayed female rat terrier.

Well apparently there WAS another father and its not the one you think - since none of the pups were shorthair, no way can the father be a boxer. Has to be another long hair dog or a shorthair mix that is carrying longhair. If the father is a pure boxer, the pups would be shorthair.
