How do I add a Coat Color description to the items already provided?
The Boxer coat colors is not available as an option due to the fact that when RescueGroups.org exports data, it needs to match to coat colors available in the export accounts, such as Petfinder and AdoptaPet. If they don't match, the export will error out and the animals won't appear on those sites. Because those coat colors are very specific to Boxers, neither Petfinder nor AdoptaPet lists them as options, thus, RescueGroups.org won't as it would create the errors.
Petfinder and AdoptaPet tend to use simply Brindle and Tan or Fawn (which are options on RescueGroups.org) and then you an add the flashy, reverse, and seal to the description of the Boxer. With Seal, which is more tricky, admittedly, you can use the Brindle with Seal in the description (as Boxer owners know what a Seal is) or black if needing to reach a wider audience.
When wanting to add coat colors, we always recommend getting in touch with Petfinder and AdoptaPet first, as our coat color updates are contingent on the data being available in their systems. In this case however, because those are so very specific to Boxers, my guess is they will not be inclined to add them and ask that the information simply be added to the description.
