You can register a Boxer not of the accepted color with the AKC, I didn't do it because it was a waste of money since I wasn't going to breed him, but my white boy had the ability to be AKC registered. You just cannot show the dog if it isn't of the breed standard.
However BLACK Boxers do not physically exist. They do not have the genetic DNA to be black. They are either a dark dark brindle (but still brindle) or if they are truly black then they are a mix of some sort. It is genetically impossible for a Boxer to truly be black and if a 'breeder' is selling them as black then they are ignorant of the breed, which IMO makes them a backyard breeder and those dogs are either truly brindle or they are Boxer mixes.
Also white Boxers DO NOT have more health issues than any other Boxer, this is a huge myth/old wives tale. They have a higher chance at being deaf at birth, but that is the only thing that sets them apart from their colored counterparts, you know that by 8 weeks old and past that they are no different than any other Boxer.
