Boxer temperament

Courageous Watchdog: Boxers are very protective of their loved ones and will demonstrate incredible courage to keep them safe. Their bark alone is enough to scare away a stranger; however, they are usually not aggressive unless the situation calls for it.

Intelligent: Boxers, historically used in war and police work, are very smart. They need firm, consistent training because they can become sneaky and demanding.

Silly and Playful: Boxers love to have fun and are affectionate with their loved ones. They are known to be patient and gentle with children; however, they can be quite bouncy as puppies and may overwhelm small children.

Muscular and Athletic: Boxers have a striking figure: lean, muscular, and ready for action. Their short, tight coat shows off their smooth, graceful movements. They love to run and need vigorous exercise daily.

Great Family Companion: Since the 1950s, Boxers have been one of America’s favorite breeds because of their striking appearance, affectionate, playful spirit, and courageous watchdog abilities.

Playful Mouthiness: Boxer puppies might have a playful tendency to use their mouths during play. It’s important to teach bite inhibition and redirect their attention to appropriate chew toys.

Curious: Boxer puppies are intelligent and curious by nature. They have a keen interest in their surroundings and may investigate new sights, sounds, and smells with enthusiasm.

Remember that individual puppies can have variations in temperament and behavior, but overall, Boxer puppies tend to be lively, affectionate, and engaging companions that thrive on interaction with their human family members.

 

Boxer Breed history

The Boxer we know and love today comes from the German breed called Bullenbeisser, or bull biter. These Mastiff-style breeds were used for large game hunting in medieval Germany. In the 1800s, Boxers were used in bull baiting. Butchers also used Boxers to herd and control cattle headed for the slaughterhouse. 

In the late 1800s, a man named George Alt in Munich, Germany used his dog Flora as the foundation for the smaller, more refined Boxer we have today. 

Boxers are working dogs and were among the first dogs trained for police work and even served in the German military during World War l. 

In 1904, AKC recognized the Boxer as an official breed. However, the general dislike for German dog breeds in America in the early 1900s kept the Boxer from becoming popular until the 40s and 50s. 

Today, the Boxer is one of America’s favorite dog breeds, ranking eighth in breeds registered by AKC. 

Some breeds with traits similar to Boxers include Bulldogs, Vizslas, Rottweilers, and Dogue De Bordeaux.

Boxer Average size

Boxers are 20-24 inches at the shoulder and weigh 50-70 pounds.

Average Boxer lifespan

You can expect your Boxer to live for 8-10 years.

Boxer body features

Boxers are known for their charming wrinkled, worried-looking face and their beautiful, well-built, muscular body.

They have powerful yet graceful movements and have taken on the name “boxer” because of their strong physique and the forward push they often give with their front paws.

grooming Your Boxer Puppy

Boxers have short, flat coats. They are average shedders and easy to groom. 

Your Boxer will need to be brushed about once a week with a firm bristle brush. 

Boxers are relatively clean dogs and only need to be bathed when they get dirty. 

You’ll also need to keep their ears clean by gently wiping their ears out with a cotton ball and trim nails regularly.

Keeping Your Boxer Puppy Healthy

Boxers cannot tolerate extreme temperatures and should be kept inside.

Boxers are subject to a number of health issues. They are susceptible to heart conditions such as aortic stenosis and cardiomyopathy, thyroid deficiency, degenerative myelopathy, and certain cancers.

Boxers are also at risk for Gastric Torsion, when the stomach twists on itself and cuts the blood flow. Learn to recognize the symptoms so you can take action immediately, as it can be fatal for your dog.

  • Hip Evaluation
  • Elbow Evaluation
  • Thyroid Evaluation
  • ASSAS Cardio
  • Aortic Valve Disease
  • Boxer Cardiomyopathy
  • ARVC DNA Test
  • Degenerative Myelopathy DNA Test

Talk to your breeder about these health tests before you buy a Boxer puppy.

Like all dog breeds, they are susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia, two of the most common health issues among dogs.

Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or potential lameness if not addressed.

One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your dog from too much running on hard surfaces, especially when they are puppies.

Typical Boxer Allergens

 Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. Both humans and animals shed these skin cells. 

Boxers are moderate to average shedders; they have short, flat coats and will shed gradually throughout the year – not seasonally. Regular bathing and brushing can help to keep the shedding under control. 

Boxers are not considered hypo-allergenic, and if you have someone in your home with animal allergy concerns, please consult your family physician. 

  • Are Boxers related to Pitbulls?
    Boxers and Pitbulls both resulted from crossing bulldogs and terriers, but they originated in different places from different parent breeds. The Pitbull came from England and is descended from Terriers and Old English Bulldogs. The Boxer originated in Germany and came from Terriers, Mastiffs, and German bulldogs. So while the two breeds are not directly related, they are similar.
  • Are Boxers dangerous?
    A well-trained, well-socialized Boxer is not dangerous at all. They are usually great with kids, non-aggressive, and make excellent family pets. In fact, they are one of the most popular dogs in the USA. However, keep in mind that without enough exercise or without proper training and socialization, Boxers may become bored, destructive, or aggressive. They may also exhibit fear-based aggression toward strangers or children.
  • Do Boxers get overexuberant?
    Boxers are powerful, active, and playful. With all their energy, they do sometimes get overexuberant, often need to be reminded to “stay down,” especially when they are young. Because of their exuberance and power, they may not be the best choice for elderly, small, or frail people.
  • Do Boxers have floppy ears or pointy ears?
    Boxers are born with floppy ears, but sometimes they are cropped so they stand up. Boxers’ tails are usually docked as well.
  • Are Boxers hard to train?
    Boxers are very intelligent and have a lot of energy. They can have a stubborn streak and tend to try out rules to see what they can get away with. Because of this, they need a firm, consistent trainer who has time to spend with them. When you put in enough time and effort, Boxers train very well. However, an untrained Boxer holds a lot of potential for evil. They are big, energetic, smart dogs that can do a lot of damage if bored or left to themselves, so don’t buy one unless you are prepared to put in the work of good training.
  • Do Boxers drool a lot?
    Some do. Boxers are known to be moderate droolers, and some drool more than others. This depends on the shape of an individual’s mouth and lips.
  • Are Boxers friendly toward strangers?
    Well-trained and socialized Boxers usually do great with strangers. However, keep in mind that they do have the potential for aggression if not well-trained and socialized.
  • Can Boxers tolerate extreme temperatures?
    No. Boxers are not tolerant of either extreme cold or heat.
  • Are Boxers unhealthy?
    Boxers are not the healthiest dogs out there, and they are prone to certain disorders and diseases.
  • Do Boxers get aggressive toward other pets?
    Boxers usually get along well with other pets if introduced properly. However, some do have aggressive tendencies that may come out with other pets.

Mary WikaWe are so happy with our boxer we purchased last year from Infinity. I was very nervous sending him from Pennsylvania to California and they answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable in the transition. Of course, he is an awesome boy. His name was Butch, which we changed to Fynnegan.
