Tibetan Mastiff vs Boxer

Someone asked me today for a comparison of the Tibetan Mastiff head vs the Boxer head, since I mentioned it in my post on Tibetan Mastiff Breed Standards yesterday.

So, go HERE, for an explanation and photos of a how a Boxer’s head is supposed to look, they even have a skull for you to look at.

After you’ve done that, come back here and take a look at this photo of Apollo in profile.

Picture Apollo with a nose about half the length of the one he currently has.  Thats what they’re trying to do to the breed.

(note: no disrespect meant to folks who have Boxers, they’re lovely dogs, but if I wanted a Boxer I’d have gotten a Boxer, one of the things that attracted me to the Tibetan Mastiff breed was the comfortable length on the muzzle)
