JUDGING THE BOXER
Color

MARKINGS

  • 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.
