There is no such thing as "cheap boxer puppies," unless you go to your local rescue shelter and accidently find one. It's like saying, I need an operation and need a cheap hospital.

Cheap? No such thing. A well bred Boxer will be in the area of $400-$1000. Pet store Boxers and the dog from down the street may be cheaper, but chances are will come with health or behavior problems due to poor breeding.
