A Boxer dog is a medium sized dog with a compact and robust body, they normally have two tone fur colors, normally in brown and white.
Boxers Are A Working Breed
Boxer dogs are hardy dogs and have very high stamina and a docile temperament, not that they canít fight back if they need too. They are always young at heart but if you own a small house they can get up to a lot of mischief and knock things over.
..It is important when buying a puppy or choosing one from a rescue, that you donít just pick the boxer dog that looks the cutest. Make sure to check the condition of the other pups and the parents as well as other animals in the area to check for signs of disease or abuse.
Boxer Dog Breeders
Boxer dog breeders will probably ask you some questions and you should be prepared to answer them well. They will often ask you how big your house is, how long will the dog be left alone and how often you will walk it. Other things to remember are that female boxer dogs are often more aggressive then their male counterparts and are much more likely to start fights although normally boxers are docile.
What Boxer Dogs are best known for!

They can be very destructive if they are left alone at home for long periods of time. They love busy households and are commonly found in hotels and guest houses, where there is a lot going on around them.
