Owning a Boxer Puppy
The Boxer dog has been a recognized purebred by the American Kennel Club since 1904. The breed is of German descent and its origins date back to the late 19th century. The Boxer dog breed was originally developed by crossing the Bullenbeisser and English bred Bulldogs. The result is a dog breed that generally stands between 21 and 25 inches in height and weighs between 55 and 70 pounds.
The muscular Boxer is a happy, intelligent, and friendly breed that will grow close bonds with its human family. With a smooth and short coat, grooming of this canine will be more because it loves your attention than out of necessity. The same, however, cannot be said for exercise, as this breed of dog has a high energy level. The children in your family will love owning a Boxer, as it will never get tired of running and playing with them. You can also expect this breed to do very well with other family pets, and provide you with a lifetime of entertainment.
While this is a generally friendly dog breed, the Boxer does have a natural instinct to protect its family from unwanted visitors, so it will make an alert watchdog if needed. Training this breed is a necessary step towards a well adjusted pet. Given the energy level of the breed, it will be necessary to teach him/her not to jump up at people, even in playfulness. The great part is, this is by far one of the most trainable breeds out there, and will excel at any task you put before them. The Boxer is legendary for its ability to adapt to its owner, as long as their needs are fulfilled, like any dog breed.
