Fawn, brindle and fawn in various shades from light yellow to
dark deer red. White markings are not undesirable, in fact, they
are often very attractive in appearance. The black mask is essential
but when white stretches over the muzzle, naturally that portion
of the black mask disappears.
Should be short and shiny, lying smooth and tight to the body.
Appearance: Medium sized dog, very muscular, sturdy
and deep chested. They have a short muzzle and a slightly upturned
chin. The head and muzzle have wrinkly skin, which gives the boxer
its unique appearance. When this dog moves it covers the ground
quickly. The gait makes it look very noble, and the movement shows
great energy in the powerful looking legs. The boxer is built to
cover many types of ground.
