What to Know About the Boxer Dog Breed
Self-assured and versatile, the Boxer is an easygoing, multi-purpose working breed with a big appetite for family fun. Part comedian and part athlete, the Boxer thrives on physical activities and, most importantly, human interaction.
The Boxer and his ancestors have worked alongside humans for centuries. Although the image of a Boxer standing up on hind legs boxing is mostly fable, the breed’s strength and work ethic is historical. Early Boxer forefathers hunted and held large animals such as wild boar and bear. In 19th century Germany, the Boxer was further developed to assist butchers, hunt, guard and perform in circuses.
