BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The Boxer originated in Germany near Munich in the 1880's, the breed was developed by crossing two German mastiff-type breed, the Bullenbeiszer and the Barenbeiszer. They were later crossed with an English Bulldog. In spite of its German origins the breed is called 'boxer', an English name that suitably describes the 'boxing' motion they make with their front paws. The Boxer is a stocky medium-sized dog who combines power and agility. Despite his imposing past, early Boxers may have been quite ferocious, the breed today is a loving family companion and utilitarian breed.

COLOR
The coat comes in such colors as various shades fawn, red and brindle with a white underbelly, chest, front and feet, some has a darker face or mask.

COAT
The Boxer has a shiny short close-fitting coat which is lying smooth and fits tightly to the body which cannot protect them from cold climates.

PERSONALITY
The Boxer are happy with a very positive personality, they have an extremely high energy level and are very clownish and willing to play. The Boxer needs lots of human companionship and do not like to be alone for extended periods of time, it may also become too possessive. Loyal and affectionate, the Boxer is considered a 'people dog' for the way they adapt to children and other dogs they have been raised with.

CARE
This breed has some major health concerns such as cardiomyopathy, digestive disorders, heart problems, hypothyroidism, cornea ulcers, epilepsy and possible bleeding disorder. They may also be prone to tumors more likely than other breeds and have tendency for allergies. The Boxer must have a proper diet due to their sensitive stomach and tendency toward excessive flatulence. The tight, short-haired coat requires minimal grooming. The Boxer is an average shedder that sheds year round, brush occasionally with a firm bristle brush, and bathes only when necessary.

TRAINING
This breed requires a dominant owner who will begin is training at an early age, because with is strong personality it can be harder to train when older. Highly clever and eager to please the Boxer love to learn and perform tricks. Some of the Boxer's talents are guide dogs for the blind, guarding, search and rescue, police and military work, they also do very well in competitive obedience.

ACTIVITY
They are fairly active indoors and if sufficiently exercised, the Boxer will do okay in a city environment, but do best with at least an average-sized fenced yard to roam in. They also enjoy regular outdoor plays like fetching a ball and long daily walk.
