Arrival Story: The people who had Cyrus were building a home and had to move to an apartment. The lady at our pet store told us these people were looking for a good home. She said we may not like him as his ears were not cropped. Our first 3 all had cropped ears, done by the breeder, so we were delighted to see how beautiful the ears are when not cropped. In those days if you showed your boxer the ears had to be cropped. Now it is different. They do not have to be cropped and I am so glad. How can such beauty be tampered with. Needless to say, he was all over us, hoped in our truck and we had 9 good years with him. He was the reason my Son and Daughter-In-Law have 2 boxers of their own.
