Original Function: cattle and butcher's dog, companion and served in WWI

Temperament: They are fearless and very self-assured.

Characteristics: As a breed these dogs are very lively, strong and very loyal. They remain puppy like throughout their lives, making them quite a handful, and unintentionally creating havoc where they go.

Be Aware: Very lively dog. They can be very destructive if they are left alone at home for long periods of time.

Height: Bitches: 53-58.5 cm (21-23 ins)

Colour: 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.

Coat: Should be short and shiny, lying smooth and tight to the body.

General 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.

 

 

The Boxer was derived from two mastiff type dogs used as hunting dogs in the middle ages in Germany. These dogs were used to hunt boar, bear and deer. These ancestors of the Boxer were also used for bull-baiting when this became a sport. In the 19th century these breeds were crossed with the Bulldog and the Boxer was created. The breed has been very popular in Europe since early this century.
These energetic dogs are very intelligent and easy to train. They are extremely trustworthy and make excellent guard dogs. They have been widely used in the military and police work. They make great pets for all the family, adults and children alike.

Grooming- their short coat is easy to care for, only needing a brush now and then and bath at least once a month.

Exercise- very athletic breed, they need daily work and exercise.

Health- This breed is generally sound but some can suffer with sinus problems and breathing difficulties. They can be prone to skin cancer in old age and also serious hereditary heart problems but most breeders now heart test so this problem is being corrected.
