Champion Sired vs. Champion Bloodlines
What is the difference?
Our puppies are out of AKC Titled Champion Boxers. That
means that the puppies sire is an actual Show Dog. It is difficult
for a boxer to get their Champion title. For most it takes months
and months of showing with a professional handler, traveling all
across the country. It takes 15 points including 2 majors under
different judges, for a dog to get an AKC Title. If you do the math,
it has to be a very special dog to get their title.
In order for a Boxer to get one or two points in our Region
they have to beat out all the other Boxers competing that
day to win those one or two points. A Boxer may have to
beat out 24 other Boxer dogs in the show that day in order
to get a 3 point "major win". Second place gets NOTHING.
If the sire of the litter is an AKC Champion then, hopefully
more puppies in the litter will look closer to how a beautiful boxer
is supposed to look. Does that mean every puppy in the litter
will be 'show quality' or have potential to be a Champion?
No. Not every puppy will get every good trait from the parents.
What does Champion Bloodlines mean?
Not a lot. It can mean anything, and the definition is generally
left up to the breeder in question. If there isn't a Champion in
the parents first few generations then the first quality show
dog was probably great great grandparents so by the time you
have the puppies in question, it still doesn't mean that they are
anywhere near the standard of what a Boxer should look like.
Puppies change so much, it is hard for anyone to look at 6-16
week old puppy and say with absolute certainty that the dog will
turn out for show.
Many of the breeders advertising these "show potential" puppies
aren't trying to lie to buyers, most don't have a clue at what they
are looking at. Many have never even been to a dog show and
are just repeating what the person that they purchased their dog
from (as a puppy) told them.
Everyone thinks their dog is beautiful, and could "be a winner" and that is
simply not the case. That is also why in one litter we may have
two puppies that some may "think" look very similarly, priced very
differently. It is generally because we are seeing a physical quality
about one puppy that we feel is less desirable than the other.
With this being said there are price differences between
AKC Champion Sired vs Championed Lined puppies.
The time, work and monies put into a AKC Champion
Boxer vs a Championed Lined Boxer is tremendous.
The show expense alone is thousands of dollars. Then
the health tests that are performed on each Boxer is very
costly. Both sire and dam should have this done. For the
most part very few AKC Championed Lined Boxers
take the time or money to health test their Boxers.
When you ask most will say well the vet just did the
shots and that is all. Or the famous line of "Well we
haven't found anything wrong with any of our puppies YET".
"YET" what a key word. Well I guess they need to wait till
something does happen. How sad for the buyer.
