Este artículo se publicó originalmente en febrero de 2022 como parte de un proyecto para celebrar el legado y valiosa aportación de los deportistas afro latinos con motivo del Mes de la Historia Afroamericana. Hoy, lo volvemos a publicar siguiendo el mismo propósito.
Aún cuando Félix “Tito” Trinidad es considerado uno de los mejores boxeadores nacidos en Puerto Rico, es sin duda el más carismático que ha dado la llamada Isla del Encanto.
Trinidad conquistó múltiples campeonatos en tres diferentes divisiones de peso. Debutó como profesional en el 1990, a los 17 años, luego de una exitosa carrera como aficionado que vio conquistas de campeonatos en cinco diferentes divisiones en Puerto Rico.
Su fama y el amor de los fanáticos puertorriqueños hacia él creó el movimiento de la llamada “Titomanía”, en donde gran parte de sus compatriotas aficionados al deporte respaldaron los combates en donde Trinidad participó y las conversaciones giraban alrededor de sus logros en el boxeo en medios televisivos, radiales y escritos..
Su primer campeonato mundial lo conquistó en 1993, cuando noqueó a Maurice Blocker en dos asaltos y se ciñó el cinturón de las 147 libras, versión de la Federación Internacional de Boxeo. Defendió el título durante los próximos seis años y medio superando a boxeadores de renombre como su compatriota Héctor “Macho” Camacho, a quien superó por decisión unánime en su primera pelea en Las Vegas, Nevada.
Posteriormente derrotó al mexicano Yori Boy Campas, Oba Carr y Pernell Whitaker, previo a lo que sería lo que muchos consideran fue su pelea más importante y quizás la más controversial.

El 18 de septiembre, Trinidad enfrentó a Óscar De La Hoya en el Mandalay Bay Hotel. Durante este combate, De La Hoya mantuvo a distancia al puertorriqueño, evitando su ataque de combinaciones. Sin embargo, en el décimo asalto el mexico-americano aparentemente fue víctima del cansancio, lo que lo llevó a girar alrededor de Trinidad apenas conectando golpes.
Los jueces dieron los dos últimos asaltos al puertorriqueño, que unificó el título welter al llevarse una apretada decisión mayoritaria que fue celebrada por miles de sus compatriotas en la isla.
La pelea ante De La Hoya fue considerada por muchos años una de las peleas con más compras de Pay per View fuera de los pesos completos, con un total de 1,400,000 casas.
Esa sería su última pelea en la división welter antes de invadir las 154 libras en el 2000, conquistando el título de la Asociación Mundial de Boxeo al vencer por decisión unánime ante David Reid. Defendió la corona en dos ocasiones antes de incursionar en las 160 libras, agenciándose el campeonato de la AMB en el 2001 ante William Joppy.
Esta victoria prepararía la escena para la búsqueda de unificar el peso mediano en un combate de ensueño ante Bernard Hopkins. La pelea se pactó para el Madison Square Garden el 15 de septiembre de ese año, pero los ataques terroristas del 11 de septiembre forzaron que se aplazara dos semanas.
Hopkins tomó el comando de la pelea en la segunda parte del combate, conectando los mejores golpes hasta que la esquina de Trinidad, encabezada por su padre Félix Trinidad Sr., detuvo la pelea en el duodécimo asalto.
Esta sería la primera derrota en 39 combates profesionales de Trinidad, quien volvió al ring en el 2002 ante Hacine Cherifi, a quien noqueó en cuatro asaltos. Luego de esta pelea, Trinidad anunció su retiro del ring.

Trinidad decidió regresar al cuadrilátero en octubre de 2004, en donde superó por KOT a Ricardo Mayorga en lo que sería su última victoria en el ring.
En mayo de 2005 enfrentó a Ronald “Winky” Wright en un intento de buscar una nueva oportunidad titular. Aunque se vió en condiciones físicas e hizo el peso sin problemas, Trinidad lució lento y sin chispa y perdió por amplia decisión unánime, provocando un segundo retiro.
Tres años después, a los 35 años de edad, el puertorriqueño tomó una pelea ante Roy Jones Jr. en un peso contratado de 170 libras, pero al igual que en su combate ante Wright, lució lento y sin mucha energía y perdió por amplia decisión unánime.
Trinidad no volvió a pelear luego de esta pelea. Fue seleccionado al Salón de la Fama de Boxeo Internacional en el 2014, convirtiéndose en el décimo boxeador de origen puertorriqueño en recibir ese honor.
Sus logros durante una carrera que se extendió durante más de 15 años colocan a Trinidad como una de las figuras latinas destacadas en el Black History Month.

Ranking the 10 Greatest Puerto Rican Fighters in Boxing History
0 of 10
Richard Drew/Associated Press
When Miguel Cotto enters the ring at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night to face Sergio Martinez, he will represent a proud Puerto Rican boxing tradition. With a population of about 3.6 million, the tiny island nation is perhaps the greatest pound-for-pound boxing country in history.
Puerto Rico has produced top boxing stars in every decade since the 1930s. Carlos Ortiz was the top lightweight champion of the 1960s and Wilfredo Gomez emerged in the late 1970s as one of the great pound-for-pound punchers in the sport’s history.
In the past 20 years, nobody has sold anywhere near as many tickets at Madison Square Garden as Cotto and Felix Trinidad. «Junito» will pack the house again this weekend when he takes on Martinez.
10. Edwin Rosario
1 of 10
Edwin Rosario was a top lightweight of the 1980s, holding different versions of the belt three times during the decade. Like many of the top stars of the era, he went down against the great Julio Cesar Chavez.
The hard-punching «Chapo» lost a split decision to Hector Camacho and went 1-1 with Frankie Randall, Juan Nazario and Jose Luis Ramirez.
Other top fighters Rosario beat include Livingstone Bramble and Olympic gold medalist Howard Davis Jr.
For his career, Rosario was 47-6 with 41 KOs.
9. Wilfredo Vazquez
2 of 10
Wilfredo Vazquez was a three-division world champion during the 1990s. He held the WBA bantamweight, super bantamweight and featherweight titles.
Vazquez dropped the bantamweight title to Khaokor Galaxy by split decision in Galaxy’s native Thailand. Moving up to super bantamweight, he won the title by stopping Raul Perez in the third round.
The 122-pound division was Vazquez’s best weight class, although he did go on to capture a belt at featherweight. Vazquez is among the most talented fighters on British star Naseem Hamed’s resume. Vazquez lost to Hamed by Round 7 TKO.
For his career, Vazquez was 56-9-2 with 41 KOs.
8. Hector Camacho
3 of 10
One of the most colorful boxers in the sport’s history and one of the biggest stars of the 1980s and 1990s, Hector Camacho was tragically murdered by gunshot in 2012. During his 30-year career he compiled a record of 78-6-3 with 38 knockouts.
Camacho was a three-division world champion. He beat such stars of his era as Jose Luis Ramirez, Edwin Rosario, Ray Mancini, Freddie Roach and Cornelius Boza-Edwards. He sent Ray Leonard into permanent retirement and beat Roberto Duran twice late in Duran’s career.
Camacho stayed active until 2010, fighting until age 48.
7. Pedro Montanez
4 of 10
Pedro Montanez was an early Puerto Rican boxing star, emerging in the 1930s as a top-ranked contender at lightweight and welterweight. He is regarded as among the most talented fighters to never win a world title.
He came close to winning the lightweight title in 1937, when he lost by majority decision to Lou Ambers at the Polo Grounds. He had previously recorded a win over Ambers.
Montanez also fought all-time pound-for-pound star Hank Armstrong, losing by TKO.
His career record was 91-8-4 with 50 KOs.
6. Jose Torres
5 of 10
A silver medalist at the 1956 Summer Olympics, Jose Torres beat Willie Pastrano to capture the light heavyweight world championship in 1965. Torres’ 1966 victory over Eddie Cotton was The Ring’s Fight of the Year.
Torres was trained by Cus D’Amato, trainer to heavyweight champions Floyd Patterson and Mike Tyson, and he employed a similar, peek-a-boo style to close distance. He was a favored sparring partner for Muhammad Ali when preparing for Joe Frazier.
In addition to his Hall of Fame career in boxing, Torres was a noted columnist and author. He wrote important biographies of both Ali and Tyson. He also served as president of the WBO.
Torres’ career record was 41-3-1 with 29 KOs.
5. Miguel Cotto
6 of 10
This Saturday night, Miguel Cotto will pack Madison Square Garden yet again, as he faces off with lineal and WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez. A victory will make Cotto the first four-division world champion ever from Puerto Rico.
Cotto has been one of the most popular boxing stars of the current generation. He was a dominant champion at light welterweight and a top fighter at 147 pounds, where he beat Shane Mosley and Zab Judah among others.
Cotto is a skilled, versatile fighter and was able to give Floyd Mayweather some of his tougher rounds in recent years when they fought at 154.
For his career, Cotto is 38-4 with 31 KOs.
4. Felix Trinidad
7 of 10
Felix Trinidad was a three-division world champion, capturing titles at welterweight, light middleweight and middleweight. He never lost a fight below 160 pounds.
Trinidad was a durable fighter with a legendary left hook. At welterweight he beat such greats as Hector Camacho, Pernell Whitaker and Oscar De La Hoya. He moved up to 154 and beat Fernando Vargas for the belt, then went up to 160 and became a champion there by beating William Joppy.
Trinidad’s first career loss was a memorable one, by Round 12 TKO to Bernard Hopkins in a unification fight in Madison Square Garden. Trinidad ended his career with back-to-back losses to Winky Wright and Roy Jones Jr.
For his career, «Tito» was 42-3 with 35 KOs.
8 of 10
Wilfredo Benitez was the youngest fighter to ever capture a world championship, winning the WBA light welterweight title from Antonio Cervantes when he was just 17. At the time, Cervantes was a veteran of nearly 90 professional fights.
Benitez would go on to win world titles at welterweight and light middleweight.
One of the great defensive fighters of all time Benitez gets unfairly overlooked, in historical terms, due to the era he fought during. Fighters like Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns and Sugar Ray Leonard take higher acclaim than the Puerican Rican legend.
Benitez defeated Duran and lost in very competitive fights to Hearns and Leonard—by majority decision to the «Hitman» and by a TKO in the 15th round to Leonard.
For his career, Benitez was 53-8-1 with 31 KOs.
2. Carlos Ortiz
9 of 10
Carlos Ortiz was a light welterweight world champion from 1959-1960, then moved down to lightweight and became the division’s premier fighter of the 1960s, holding the world title from 1962-1965 and from 1965-1968.
A slick technical boxer, Ortiz recorded victories over fellow Hall of Famers Joe Brown, Flash Elorde and Sugar Ramos. He fought to a draw with junior welterweight champ and Hall of Famer Nicolino Locche.
Ortiz retired in 1972 after losing by knockout for the only time in his career to rising star Ken Buchanan.
His career record was 61-7-1 with 30 KOs.
1. Wilfredo Gomez
10 of 10
Wilfredo Gomez is the greatest super bantamweight and one of the top knockout punchers of all time. He started his career with a draw in his first fight, then went on to win his next 32 bouts, all by stoppage.
After a dominant run at super bantamweight, Gomez stepped up to featherweight to face Mexican great Salvador Sanchez in a superfight. Gomez suffered the first loss of his career but still went on to capture a world title at 126 pounds when he beat Juan Laporte by unanimous decision.
After losing his featherweight title to Azumah Nelson, Gomez moved up to 130 and became a three-division champion when he beat Rocky Lockridge by majority decision.
For his career, Gomez was 44-3-1 with 42 KOs.
Dogs, breeds, animal care
Adapts well to apartment life
Contrary to popular belief, small dogs are not always suitable for keeping in apartments. Many small dogs are too energetic and too «talkative» to live in an apartment building. Not every breed is suitable for such purposes. Quietness, low energy levels, fairly calm indoors, and courtesy to other occupants are all good qualities of an apartment dog. If you already have a dog, but he is hyperactive, then you should find a little more personal space for him in your apartment.
Suitable for beginners
Some dog breeds have a calm temperament. These dogs are easier than others, they are better suited for training, and are also quite stress resistant. This will help you if there are mistakes in education.
Dogs that are highly sensitive, independent thinking or assertive may be more difficult to manage. You will get the best result if you take into account your previous dog ownership experience when choosing a new dog.
If you’re new to dog training, learn how to train a dog!
Adopting an older dog can be a great option, he already knows how to interact with people and he is usually less demanding of your time and energy. But here’s the catch: It’s important to keep your senior dog active well into old age by giving him joint supplements to combat arthritis symptoms that can help keep joints healthy.
Some dogs are accommodating, while others may snap and react aggressively to the owner in the process of training. Dogs with low sensitivity, also called «accommodating», «tolerant», «hardy» and even «thick-skinned», are better able to tolerate noisy owners and inconsistent or inconsistent routines. Do you have young children, often host dinner parties, or lead a hectic lifestyle? Choose a dog with low sensitivity.
Some breeds bond very closely with their family and are more prone to anxiety or even panic when left alone by their owner. An uptight dog can be very destructive — barking, whining, chewing, and otherwise causing havoc. These breeds are best when a family member is at home during the day or if you can take the dog to work.
Tolerates cold weather
Breeds with very short coats and little or no undercoat or fat, such as greyhounds, are vulnerable to cold. Dogs with low cold tolerance should live indoors in cool climates and have a jacket or sweater for walking in cold weather.
Tolerates hot weather
Dogs with thick double coats are more vulnerable to overheating. The same is true for short-haired breeds such as Bulldogs or Pugs, as they cannot breathe to cool themselves. If you choose these heat-sensitive breeds, keep in mind that your dog will need to stay indoors with you on warm or humid days, and you will need to take extra care when exercising your dog in hot weather.
Affectionate with family
Some breeds are independent and aloof, even if raised by the same person from childhood; others are closely connected with one person and indifferent to all others; and some shower the whole family with love. In such matters, the breed is not the only factor influencing the level of attachment to households and people around them. But, keep in mind that dogs that have grown up in a home with people around feel more comfortable around people. Treats can help you form attachment, they will help make the process of adaptation to the family smoother, but be careful not to overdo it. Your goal is to help them see you as a breadwinner and a guarantor of safety, and also to keep them healthy!
Suitable for children
Being gentle with children, tough enough to handle domineering pets and the hugs they can give, and an arrogant attitude towards running and screaming children are all traits that make a dog friendly to children. You might be surprised who’s on this list: Fierce Boxers are considered good kids, as are American Staffordshire Terriers (which are considered Pit Bulls). Small, gentle, and potentially blunt dogs like the Chihuahua are not always suitable for family outings.
** All dogs are individuals. Our ratings are generalizations and are not a guarantee of how any breed or individual dog will behave. Dogs of any breed can get along well with children based on their past experiences and personality. Regardless of breed or breed type, all dogs have strong jaws, sharp teeth and can bite in stressful situations. Small children and dogs of any breed should always be supervised by adults and should never be left alone together, period.
Dog friendly and human friendly are two completely different things. Some dogs may attack or try to dominate other dogs even if they love people; others would rather play than fight; and some will turn their tails and run away. Breed is not the only factor. Dogs that have lived with their littermates and mother until at least six to eight weeks of age and who have spent a lot of time playing with other dogs as puppies are more likely to have good relationships with other litters.
Friendly to strangers
Stranger-friendly dogs will greet guests with wagging tails and noses; others are shy, indifferent, or even aggressive. However, regardless of breed, a dog that was exposed to many different types, ages, sizes and shapes of people as a child will respond better to strangers as an adult. Remember that even friendly dogs must be supervised so as not to harm others!
Health and care needs
Number of sheds
If you are going to live in the same house as a dog, you will have to deal with some amount of dog hair on your clothes and in the house. However, molting varies greatly between breeds. Some dogs shed year-round, some seasonally, some both, and some barely shed. If you’re neat, you’ll either need to choose a low shedding breed or lower your standards. To make your house a little cleaner, you should feed the dog in a balanced way, take vitamin therapy courses, comb its coat often and create a favorable atmosphere (the dog sheds much more intensively when under constant stress).
Dogs that are prone to saliva can throw ropes of saliva around your arm and leave large wet stains on your clothes when they come up to say hello. If you have a laid-back attitude to saliva, fine; but, if you’re careful, you can choose a dog that has a low saliva rating.
Some breeds — purebred dogs; others require regular bathing, haircuts, and other grooming to stay clean and healthy. Consider if you have the time and patience for a dog that needs careful grooming, or the money to pay someone else for it.
Due to poor breeding practices, some breeds are prone to certain genetic health problems such as hip dysplasia. This does not mean that every dog of this breed will develop these diseases; it simply means they are at increased risk.
If you are adopting a puppy, it would be a good idea to find out what genetic diseases are common to the breed you are interested in. You can also ask if your shelter, rescue facility, or dog breeder has information about your potential puppy’s physical health, parents, and other relatives.
Many health problems are related to digestion and bowel problems. Adding to your dog’s daily routine can help your pet feel better and improve their overall health!
Many larger dogs are prone to joint problems. Diet and vitamin/mineral supplementation can help keep joints healthy.
Ability to gain weight
Some breeds have a good appetite and gain weight easily. Just like in humans, being overweight can cause health problems in dogs as well. If you choose a breed that is prone to gaining weight, you will need to limit the amount of treats, make sure they get enough exercise, and measure out their daily food portions for regular meals. But in no case do not refuse food all the time.
Ask your veterinarian about your dog’s diet and what they recommend to feed your dog to maintain a healthy weight. If your dog has GI problems, a veterinary consultation and a switch to medicated and diet foods is essential, this practice will help your dog feel better and improve his overall health!
Dogs come in all sizes, from the smallest dog in the world, the Chihuahua, to the tall Great Dane. How much space a dog takes up is a key factor in deciding if they are compatible with you and your living space. Large dog breeds may seem powerful and intimidating, but some of them are incredibly sweet and unpretentious! Take a look and find the right size dog!
Easy to train
Some dogs, easy to train, quickly form associations between a prompt (eg the word «sit»), an action (sitting), and a consequence (getting a treat). Other dogs need more time, patience and repetition during training. Therefore, it is worth being more tolerant when training your pet, because people are also all different.
Many breeds are smart, but approach training with the question, «What’s in it for me?» and, in this case, you will need to use rewards and games to get them to obey your requests first.
Dogs that have been bred for work that requires decision making, intelligence, and concentration (such as herding cattle) need to train their brains, just as dogs that have been bred to run all day need to train their bodies. If they don’t get the necessary mental stimulation, they will do their job — usually even hacky, without much enthusiasm, and do things that you don’t like (digging, chewing on unnecessary objects). Obedience exercises and interactive dog toys are good ways to train a dog’s brain, as are dog sports and careers such as agility and search and rescue.
Desire to chew
Common in most puppy breeds and in retrievers of all ages in particular. Gagging refers to the tendency to bite, chew, and nibble (a mild, fairly painless bite that does not pierce the skin). Weak dogs are more likely to use their mouth to hold or «herd» their family members and need to be taught that chewing on chew toys is okay, but not people.
Dogs bred for hunting, such as terriers, have an innate desire to chase — and sometimes kill — other animals. Anything that rushes by, like cats, squirrels, and maybe even cars, can trigger this instinct. Dogs that love to be chased need to be leashed or kept in a fenced area when you are outside, and you will need a tall, secure yard fence. These breeds are generally not suitable for homes with small pets that may look like prey, such as cats, hamsters, or small dogs. On the other hand, breeds that were originally used to hunt birds will not usually chase other animals, but you will probably have a hard time getting their attention when birds fly by.
Propensity to bark or howl
Some breeds speak more often than others. When choosing a breed, consider how often the dog barks or howls. If you think about a dog, do you find their signature howl musical or driving you crazy? Can you tolerate it and how “talkative” is your potential pet. If you’re thinking about a watchdog, would a city full of suspicious «strangers» make your pup constantly on the alert? Will the local wildlife literally drive your dog crazy? Do you live in a house with noise restrictions? Do you have neighbors nearby? If the answer is yes, then you should choose a calmer dog.
Some breeds are more free-spirited than others. Northern dogs such as Siberian Huskies have been bred to hunt long distances and, given the chance, they can run away if something piques their interest. Many dogs simply follow their nose — or that rabbit that just crossed the road — even if it means the dog will disobey you.
Energetic dogs are always ready and waiting for action. Originally bred to do some sort of canine work, such as hunting game for hunters or herding livestock, they have enough stamina to put their strength into a full day’s work. They need a lot of exercise and mental stimulation and are more likely to spend their time jumping, playing and exploring any new sights and smells.
Low Energy Dogs is the dog’s equivalent of a couch ready to sleep through the day. When choosing a breed, consider your own activity level and lifestyle and consider whether you can cohabitate under the same roof.
Health problems can also affect your dog’s energy level. Adding the right amount of vitamins and minerals to your pet’s diet can help them feel better and improve their overall health!
A strong dog may or may not have high energy, but everything they do, they do with energy: they strain on the leash (until you get them used to it), try to overcome obstacles, and even eat and drink in large sips . These dynamos need a lot of training to learn good manners and may not be suitable for a home with young children or someone who is elderly or infirm. On the other hand, a low energy dog has a more reserved approach to life.
Some breeds are fine with a slow evening walk around the block. Others need daily vigorous exercise, especially those that were originally created for demanding physical tasks such as herding or hunting.
Without enough exercise, these breeds can gain weight and release stored energy in ways you don’t like, such as barking, chewing and digging. Breeds that require a lot of exercise are suitable for active outdoorsmen or anyone interested in training their dog to compete in a high-energy canine sport such as agility.
Even older dogs need exercise to help combat the symptoms of arthritis and other age-related conditions. You can give your dog the joint supplements he needs to keep active into old age.
Ability to be playful
Some dogs are eternal puppies and always ask to play, while others are more serious and calm. While a playful puppy sounds cute, consider how many games you want to play each day and if you have kids or other dogs that could be dog playmates.
You may want to adopt an older dog. Older dogs can remain playful into old age and have fewer demands than younger dogs. can help fight arthritis symptoms and keep your older dog active and playful.
More about this breed
- Boxadors — dogs of mixed breeds. They are not purebred like their parents are boxers or labradors.
- Basic colors of Boxadors are black, brown, brindle and white. Their coat is rarely hard, but usually consists of two or more colors.
- They are generally no considered safe for allergy sufferers. Luckily, their coat is very easy to care for. A good weekly brushing will probably do.
- Boxadores require a 30-minute hike, walk or play game, and an hour of vigorous yard running each day to help burn off pent-up energy.
- Boxadors love kids and are great playmates for kids of all ages. Always watch for any interaction between dogs and young children.
- Make sure you have time to take care of this active puppy because he doesn’t like to be left alone for long periods of time and may experience separation anxiety.
- Boxadors can get along well with other dogs and cats, especially if they are brought up with them.
Because the Boxador is a relatively new mixed breed, there are few standards when it comes to size. However, as a mix between Boxer and Labrador Retriever parents, you can expect Boxers to be in the medium to large category.
Most of them weigh 50 to 110 pounds and are 23 to 25 inches tall at the shoulder. However, being such a new cross, many of them can be smaller or larger depending on which parental genes are more dominant.
Males run slightly larger than females.
Boxadores have a high level of energy and love to play. A large family with a yard is ideal for this puppy. Lots of people who give attention and activities will stimulate this dog.
If you are considering adoption, make sure you have time to take care of this active puppy because he does not like to be left alone for long periods of time and may experience separation anxiety. If they don’t get enough stimulation, they can get bored quickly, which can lead to destructive behavior.
Like most dogs, Boxadores need exposure to many different people, sights, sounds and experiences at a young age. Socialization helps ensure that your Boxador puppy grows up to be a versatile, outgoing, friendly dog and stays that way.
Boxadors are smart and love to please their family, which helps in training. Make sure they don’t forget who’s in charge and give them positive reinforcement.
The Boxador mixed breed is prone to some of the same conditions that the Boxer and Labrador encounter. While most are generally healthy, some can be prone to some health issues, so it’s important to maintain good care and get regular veterinary checkups.
Some of the most common health problems are:
- Joint dysplasia
- Eye problems
- Heart problems
It’s nice to spoil our dogs with treats, but keeping your dog in check is one of the best things you can do for him. Sliced carrots or celery are a great little healthy treat.
As with all dogs, you should have regular veterinary checks on your Boxador to detect any health problems in a timely manner. Your veterinarian can help you develop a care regimen.
Boxadores love to eat and will quickly gain weight if they are allowed to feed for free. Choose quality dog food and stick to a feeding schedule; two feedings a day can be ideal to keep this dog happy. They also need an exercise schedule. A 30-minute walk, walk or play a game, and an hour of active running around the yard will help burn off the accumulated energy.
Check their ears daily for debris and pests and clean them as recommended by your veterinarian. If your Boxador has creases in the ears, they may be susceptible to bacteria and pest infestation, which can lead to ear infections. Keeping them clean and dry is the best way to avoid doctor visits. If your dog develops a strong odor or scratches his ears a lot, he may have an ear infection and will need to see a veterinarian.
Trim your dog’s nails before they get too long — usually once or twice a month. They shouldn’t hit the floor. Your groomer can help with this.
When it comes to caring for your Boxador, maintaining your oral health is your number one concern. You should brush your teeth at least three times a week. Your veterinarian can instruct you on how to properly brush your dog’s teeth.
Clean your dog’s eyes as you would your own. You can use a cloth or your fingers to wipe away any secretions or debris that accumulates in the corners.
The ideal Boxador diet should be formulated for medium to large active breeds. They tend to gain weight if overfed, so you should stick to a regular feeding schedule and don’t put off eating during the day. Also limit the amount of treats.
As with all dogs, the dietary requirements of Boxers will change from puppyhood to adulthood and will continue to change into adulthood. You should ask your veterinarian for advice on your Boxador’s diet as individual dogs have too many differences including weight, energy and health status to make a specific recommendation.
Coat color and care
Boxador coats are often a mixture of the coat and color of their Boxer and Labrador parents. Primary colors: black, brown, brindle and white. Their coat is rarely hard, but usually consists of two or more colors.
They usually have a short, shiny coat and are usually no considered safe for allergy sufferers. Luckily, their coat is very easy to care for. A good weekly brushing will probably do. They can groom themselves and are considered fairly neat dogs.
Boxadores tend to have shorter coats, so they are not particularly suitable for extreme weather conditions. You will most likely need a coat for your dog in the winter, and you may need to apply sunscreen to the ears, nose, and sensitive areas where there is less coat coverage during the summer months.
Children and other pets
Boxadores love children and are great playmates for children of all ages. Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always watch for any interaction between dogs and small children to prevent them from tugging on their tails or biting them. Teach your child to never approach a dog while it is eating or sleeping and never try to take the dog’s food. No dog should be left unattended with a child.
Boxadores can get along well with other dogs and cats, especially if they are brought up with them. Find out more about this puppy by reading about their parent breeds, about and.
