Boxers are a distinguishable breed! These medium-sized and strong dogs got their name from the habit of standing on their hind legs and "boxing" with their front paws.
Boxers are working dogs! They have been trained to hunt, guard, work along side police and be seeing-eye dogs for the blind. Even the American Kennel Club (AKC) categorizes Boxers as the largest breed registered in the "working dog" category
Boxers make fantastic companions! Other than their heavy-duty capabilities, they can be a great friend.
Boxers are beautiful! The typical standing height of a full-grown female is 21-25 inches at the shoulder and weights between 50-65lbs. Males can be taller and on average 15lbs heavier. Physical characteristics of the Boxer include a chiseled head, square jaw and muscular body and come in a range of colors like fawn, brindle and white.
Boxers have distinct traits! They're always alert and watchful, the mark of an instinctive guard dog, but also a cozy housed that is sensitive to temperature extremes. They have expressive faces with wrinkled forehead and dark, touching eyes--a charming quality that sets the Boxer apart from other breeds.
