The Boxer is a high-spirited dog who loves to get physical when playing. Possibly named for his tendency to use his feet while roughhousing, the Boxer is brave and willing to take on any challenge. Despite his energetic nature, he remains a loving family dog who’s good with children, and adores his people. Because he can be suspicious of strangers, it is important to socialize him well when young.


The Boxer has ancestors known as Molossians; they were large, strong dogs used by the Assyrians in battle thousands of years ago. A cross between Bulldogs and the small Mastiff-type Bullenbeisser which was used to bait bulls, hunt and pull carts, the true Boxer was born in Germany in the late 1800s. Bred to be a capable fighting and hunting dog and protector, the breed is quite versatile, and was used as a messenger, pack carrier, attack dog and guard dog throughout World War I. Canadian and American soldiers were attracted to these brave handsome dogs and brought them home to North America. Today, they work well as service dogs and excel at obedience.
