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.
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.
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.
