Boxer Dogs Information - What Are Boxer Dogs?

Boxer dogs are great all around dog breeds, distinguished
canine and the coolest, most lovable dog out there!
Boxer Dogs are medium-built and strong breed that are
so named because of its habit of standing on the hind legs
to begin a fight and boxing with the front paws.

By nature, Boxer dogs are working dogs. Throughout
history it has been trained as:

- hunting dog
- police dog
- seeing-eye dog for the blind
- guard dog
- circus dog
- courier dog on the battlefields during World War
I and World War II
- fighting dog in the once popular sport of dog fighting.

The American Kennel Club (AKC) categorizes dogs into
7 groups of herding, hound, non-sporting, sporting,
terrier, toy and working. And the largest breed registered
in the working dog category is the Boxer.

No doubt the Boxer Dogs make for great utility dog but
the greatest advantage to owning one is that Boxer Dogs

and great source of personal fulfillment.

By the way, the AKC registered over 150 different breeds
totaling nearly one million dogs in 2003. To put that in
perspective, the animal shelters in America rescue up to
12 million homeless dogs and cats every year and 25%
of these are purebreds.

The Boxer Dog's history could be traced back to
feudal Germany, where it was a small hunting dog that
could tenaciously hold onto a bull, boar, or bear till
the master arrived. It was also a utility dog for peasants
and shop owners, and even a performing dog in circus.

The Boxer Dogs as we know it today is a bigger breed ?
a mixture of the German Boxer with a taller, more
elegant English import. The era of this modern Boxer
began in the 1880s and became really popular in the
United States in the late 1930s-1940s.

Handsome dog: Within the canine world, Boxer Dogs
are medium-sized dog standing at 21 to 25 inches at
the shoulder for a full-grown female, and weighs some
50 to 65 pounds. The male can be taller and 15 pounds
heavier.

It has a striking good look with chiseled head, square
jaw and muscled body that make for a very handsome
silhouette.

The ears are cropped and erect that enhance its hearing ?
the Boxer most developed sense. It is always alert and
vigilant, an instinctive guard dog.

The shortened muzzle makes hot and humid weather
uncomfortable for the Boxer Dogs.

The coat is short, hard and smooth, and possesses
a natural sheen that can be enhanced with rubdowns
with a chamois cloth (especially after a bath).

The short coat cannot protect him well from extreme
elements of the weather and thus Boxer Dogs should
definitely not be kept outdoors. It is a housedog,
sensitive to temperature extremes, does not enjoy
the draft, summer heat or cold.

Boxer Dogs come in attractive basic colors of fawn
and brindle. The fawn varies from a tawny tan to
an especially beautiful stag red. The brindle (clearly
defined black stripes on a fawn background) can be
sparse, in between or dense.

A beauty standard for Boxer Dogs is that their white
markings or "flash" should add to their look and may
not cover more than one-third of the entire body. Some
predominantly or all-white puppies (known as "check")
may be born in a litter.

In the US, however, the American Boxer Club members
are pledged not to register, sell or use these "whites"
for breeding so as to retain the beauty of the true fawn
and brindle colors in the breed.

Personality-wise, Boxer is a cool dog that will not bark
without cause. Its expressive face ? the furrowed
forehead and dark, soulful eyes - is a charming quality
that sets the Boxer apart from other breeds.

It can mimic the moods of its master and adopting one
could bring you 9 to 11 years of joyful companionship.
In exceptional cases the Boxer can live up to 15 years.

Boxer Dogs As Pet

Pet Boxer Dogs, although low-maintenance, require
your consistent attention, exercise, human interaction,
consistent obedience training and lots of love. You
cannot leave them to their own design for too long or
they get lonely, bored and into trouble.

Being a big and strong dog as well as a highly
intelligent one, Boxer Dogs need both physical and
mental stimulations to keep them even-tempered and
dignified while still keeping their impish spirit and
fearless courage in tact.


All the best!!!

Warm regards,
