The Boxer was originally bred from the now extinct Bullenbeisser and the Bulldog and the dog is part of the Molosser group. Boxers are the seventh most popular breed of dog in the United States, according to the 2006 American Kennel Club statistics. Boxers have held this position since 2002.

Size

An adult Boxer generally weighs around 55 and 70 lbs (25 and 32 kg). Adult male Boxers are commonly between 23 and 25 inches (57 and 63 cm) tall at the withers and adult Boxers females are between 21 to 23½ inches (53 and 60 cm).

Temperament

Boxers are energetic, bright and playful breeds of dogs. Boxers also tend to be very good with children. Boxers are also strong dogs and it is best to supervise the Boxers around small children. It's always best to begin obedience training as early is possible since Boxers ar eknwon to have a strong personality and therefore can be significantly harder to train as the Boxer gets older. This fact, in addition to the dogs strength, could present a challenge for a first time Boxer owner. Boxers have developed a reputation of being "headstrong", which is often related to poor and inappropriate obedience training. Boxers are often found to be more comfortable with companionship, from people or other dogs. Boxers addiitonally are very active dogs that are best when getting plenty of exercise. In fact, lonely boxers often become stressed and engage in destructive behavior.

I have a flashy fawn female and she is just a joy to have. She is on the huge side..85 pounds of pure muscle but she listens to me. all I have to say is her name and she stops dead in her tracks and comes to me. she was a rescue dog. she loves to ride shotgun in the car. she loves bread and sweets..probably why previous owner named her candy-which I kept. She does NOT like cats.

I'm totally in love with them!! They're the goofiest dog ever. Can"t wait to get my house with a back yard so I could get more, one for each one in the family. We currently have two.
