Boxer Information

boxer breedThe Boxer is in the top 10 for most popular dogs, and it’s easy to see why. They’re loyal, fun-loving and affectionate friends. Their turned-up nose, pointed ears and sweet eyes are hard to resist. Characteristically, Boxers are muscular and strong with a smooth and graceful athleticism – like the athlete they’re named for.

The breed descends from a line of dogs found throughout Europe since the 1500s. Today they can have a brindle or fawn coat with white markings. Patient yet playful and easy to train, this dog is a perfect choice for those with families that include children and other pets.
