“I currently reside with two lab/boxer mixes. I prefer the lab part of the personality, but these little buggars are sweet. I loved my friends Boxer, Gunner, and her new little guy

“SO cute, I think of these as the friendlier Pit Bulls, in a PR sense- we'll get into that later. Boxers remind me of a Pit's body and they will act like a puppy for a long time

About this topic


Developed in Germany, the Boxer is a breed of stocky, medium-sized, short-haired dog. The coat is smooth and fawn or brindled, with or without white markings. Boxers are brachycephalic (they have broad, short skulls), and have a square muzzle, mandibular prognathism (an underbite), very strong jaws and a powerful bite ideal for hanging on to large prey. The Boxer was bred from the English Bulldog and the now extinct Bullenbeisser and is part of the Molosser group.

Boxers were first exhibited in a dog show for St. Bernards at Munich in 1895, the first Boxer club being founded the next year. Based on 2008 American Kennel Club statistics, Boxers are the sixth most popular breed of dog in the United States for the second year in a row—moving up in 2007 from the seventh spot, which they'd held since 2002—with 33,548 new dog registrations during the year.
