GREENEVILLE, GREENE COUNTY TN - A NEIGHBOR'S WHITE BOXER BROKE ITS LEASH AND ATTACKED A 14-YEAR-OLD BOY WHO WAS ABLE TO GET ON TOP OF A VAN TO GET AWAY

A teenager required hospital treatment Tuesday afternoon after being attacked by a neighbor's dog in the 200 block of Old Ridge Lane, sheriff's Deputy Michael Ball said in a report.
A relative of 14-year-old Joshua Norton told deputies that she heard "screams coming from outside and saw her nephew Joshua on top of her van trying to get away from the neighbor's dog," the report said.
The dog broke its leash and attacked Norton, inflicting severe lacerations to his right leg and arm, the report said.
Norton was taken to a Greeneville hospital emergency room for treatment, the report said.
The owner of the dog, described as a white BOXER, "contained the dog inside the residence after the incident," the report said.

I don't think I've ever seen a white boxer. Do they really come in white?

Maybe the owner of the dog was a white boxer. Like Rocky.

Used to be that white boxers were dropped in a bucket of water when they were born, the culling process due to the breed club only registering non-white boxers, I believe. Not a Boxer fan or know much about them, but I just verified that this was/is a common breeder practice. Some say it's birth defects, but I always thought it was breed color preference.

OMGosh! Those are the ugliest boxers I've ever seen! The ones on the top look like they may have some American Bulldog in them though...

LMAO ANON!

"White boxer" or boxer mix, is really code for American Bulldog, pit bull, pit bull mix, Dogo Argentino, or whatever other deadly dog the owner is trying to disguise.

Google "white boxer cull" and you'll learn something.

and "BOXER" is code for AmStaff, AmBull, BullDog, etc. I was not disputing that, just telling previous commentor why they used to be so scarce.

jeez louise, we ain't all stupid, some of us are just old and remember stuff before the pit bull plague.

Sorry anon,

I wasn't responding to your prior post. In fact, because the comments have to be approved, yours wasn't even visible when I wrote my response...

"'White boxer' or boxer mix, is really code for American Bulldog, pit bull, pit bull mix, Dogo Argentino, or whatever other deadly dog the owner is trying to disguise."

So don't get offended when no offense was intended. Especially when we're on the same side.
