    I have put with him eating all sorts of poo (goats,chickens,cats, etc) now tonight I had to ride the 4-wheeler to the back of the pasture where he was eating a dead baby goat.... the mother had miscarried....I am at wits end....he is a house dog and he cant stay indside eating all that

    I have often told my dogs to "stop acting like a dog"!!!

    Boxers are just like that. Ours is a rescue and a neurotic mess most of the time. [​IMG]

    He eats chicken poo, but I think most dogs will.

    Good luck. Boxers can be difficult.

    Yes, eating poop is disgusting and both of my dogs do it. I would worry more about my dog walking in all of that poop and tracking it into the house. This is why my dogs live outside. I also hate dogs who lick me just because of the fact of what they eat and the things they lick [​IMG]
