Original White & Brindle Greyhound SANDICAST Dog Sculpture Artist Sandy Brue’s designs have set an industry standard. Every sculpture exhibits a stunning realism that is the hallmark of a SANDICAST piece. Hand-casting is a slow, methodical process that produces a piece free of flaws and bubbles. Every intricate detail is captured–be it a bulldog’s furrowed brow, the velvety texture of a Siamese cat’s ear, or a West Highland Terrier’s little, curled tongue. Following casting, each SANDICAST sculpture must pass strict quality control before it can be painted. Artisans use both bristle and air brush methods of painting. Multiple painting steps and techniques take longer, and cost more to produce. SANDICAST creates the highest quality, most realistic, and lifelike sculptures on the market today. The final step is the insertion of specially crafted glass eyes. Glass eyes give more sparkle and many are custom made for SANDICAST. Often people comment when looking at SANDICAST animals, It feels as if they’re staring right back at you!”Dimensions of White & Brindle Greyhound sculpture: 12″L x 5″W x 2″H”

The Boxer is an impressive, powerfully built dog of German origin. The breed was created in the 1800s and was originally a cross between the English Bulldog and the Bullenbeisser, a now extinct dog that was used to hunt wild boar. The breed was first introduced into the United States at the turn of the twentieth century, but did not achieve widespread popularity as a pet dog until after World War II. They are currently ranked as one of the most popular dog breeds by the AKC.
With its hanging jowls, undershot jaw and solid, powerful build, the Boxer looks very intimidating. The coat is short and can be fawn or brindle with white markings on the chest and the paws.
Standing 25 inches at the withers and weighing as much as 70 pounds the Boxer, has a strong barrel chest and a very strong, squarish jaw. It looks very much like the middle-weight pugilist that its name suggests.In the past the tail was commonly docked, and the ears were sometimes cropped. However, these practices have now been outlawed in many countries.
Despite their tough guy looks, Boxers are generally sweet-natured, friendly, and playful. They are particularly gentle with children and fiercely protective of their owners. They are however, cautious around strangers and ready to defend their human family against any threat. These characteristics make the Boxer an excellent guard dog.
Boxers are not the easiest dogs to train, because they have a decidedly stubborn streak. They are however, quite intelligent, and very eager to please, so with persistence you will succeed. Be aware though that they are quite sensitive and don’t respond well to harsh treatment. Use a positive, reward-based training approach if you want results.
Unfortunately, Boxers can suffer from a number of inherited health problems including, skin tumors, heart murmurs, digestive problems, hypothyroidism, progressive axonopathy, hip dysplasia and cornea ulcers. The average lifespan for the breed is between 10 and 12 years.
Grooming is an easy, low maintenance task, requiring a brush down a few times a week to keep the short coat looking its best.
You will also want to clean the teeth weekly and keep the nails clipped to a reasonable length. This last task is one that few dog owners enjoy, but your vet of a professional groomer can do it for you if you are squeamish.
If you’re thinking of adopting a Boxer you’ll need to be prepared to meet the dog’s exercise needs. These are energetic dogs, who need at least a long walk every day. You should also involve your Boxer in games, as they are quite playful dogs.
These loyal, affectionate, energetic and protective dogs are excellent family pets, and it is no surprise that they are one of the most popular dog breeds, world-wide.
Good dog names can be hard to find. The best advice is to try one of the online puppy names, sites. My personal favorite is Puppy Names HQ, a site that has tons of excellent dog names to pick from, including thousands of girl dog names.

If you want a dog that is a marshmallow with your children, but a strong deterrent to criminals, you may want to take a look at the Boxer. The Boxer gets its name from its habit of using its front legs to box when it is fighting. These powerful dogs were originally used as hunting dogs, although they quickly became popular as police and military dogs in Europe. As people began to discover how devoted and loving the Boxer was to its family, this dog breed turned into a companion dog, as well. Interestingly enough, the versatile Boxer didn’t become popular in the United States until men returning from fighting in World War II brought some of these dogs home with them.
Although Boxers are considered to be medium sized dogs, they have the strength of a big dog. A young, healthy Boxer is all muscle and energy and weighs in at fifty to eighty pounds. These dogs have a broad chest, a wide skull and a face similar to that of a Bulldog. Their big brown eyes are very expressive and these dogs are not above using a pitiful ‘poor me’ look to get their own way.
Boxers should be fawn or brindle with black mask like markings on their face. A dog with white markings is considered to be flashy. However, if a Boxer has more than one third of its body covered in white or is completely white, it will be unable to compete in the show ring. Also, white Boxers are prone to deafness, as well as other health problems.
If you live in an apartment, a Boxer may not be the right breed for you. These dogs are high energy animals and really need to be able to exercise frequently. A home with a securely fenced yard is ideal for a Boxer. You will need to be sure the fence is high enough and secure enough to prevent your dog from escaping, since a Boxer can easily jump over lower fences.
Although most Boxers get along well with other dogs, you may not want to buy a Boxer if you have a small dog or cat. If you do have other dogs, consider neutering your Boxer at six months to keep aggression toward other dogs in check. Small children and Boxers get along quite nicely, although your Boxer may be too energetic to play with toddlers until he matures. After all, a young, exuberant Boxer can easily knock an adult flat with an overly enthusiastic greeting.
Since Boxers are so high energy and so powerful, these dogs need to be enrolled in obedience training while they are still easy to control. Puppy classes can also help you socialize your Boxer and will teach him to play nicely with other dogs. These dogs are eager to please and should pick up basic obedience commands quickly. You may want to consider advanced obedience and agility training for your Boxer, as well.
Boxers require very little grooming. Simply brush through your dog’s sleek coat once a week to remove loose hair so you don’t have to vacuum it off of your floor. You should also clean your dog’s teeth and check his nails to see if they need to be trimmed.
Boxers are hearty eaters. You should consider feeding your dog a food formulated for large dogs, since Boxers are prone to hip dysplasia. These dogs have relatively few other serious health problems. You may want to check for a history of heart or thyroid disease before buying a puppy. Boxers also have a high rate of cancer as they age. Take your dog in for twice a year physical exams by your veterinarian to detect cancer early when it is easier to treat.
So, if you want a dog who will be a devoted friend and companion, then a Boxer may be the perfect choice for you.
