Overview
The Boxer originated in Germany in the late 19th century. This breed's name was supposedly derived from the "boxing" motion they made with their front paws. Boxers are stocky and medium in size with strong jaws and a powerful bite. They are widely used in search and rescue, police work, and military work.
Character
Boxers are lively, strong, and extremely loyal. They have an exceedingly high energy level. They carry themselves with pride, but are never arrogant. They have a stoic stance, and are intelligent, loving, delightful companions.
Temperament
The Boxer is patient, dignified, and self-assured. They exhibit curiosity, but are wary of strangers. This breed is fearless and courageous if threatened. They are keenly alert and have a heightened sense of hearing, which make them excellent guard dogs. The Boxer adores children and other pets they have been raised with. They have an inordinate need for human companionship and do not like to be alone for extended periods of time. They are not well suited for a two career family. Insufficient attention may lead them into "bad" behavior in an attempt to be noticed.
Care
The Boxers tight, short coat requires minimal grooming. Occasional brushing with a firm bristle brush is recommended. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary to ensure the essential oils are not stripped from their skin. The Boxer is typically clean and will groom themselves. This breed has some major health concerns such as cardiomyopathy, sub-aortic stenosis, and hip dysplasia. They may also be prone to tumors, epilepsy, allergies, and skin problems. A proper diet is absolutely essential due to their sensitive stomach and tendency toward excessive flatulence. The Boxer is an indoor pet as their short coat cannot protect them from cold climates.
Coat
The Boxer has a shorthaired coat, which is shiny, smooth, and fits tightly to the body. The coat comes in such colors as fawn, red, and brindle, with "flashings" of white on their underbelly, chest, and all four feet. In some cases the "flashing" will appear on their face. The Boxer is an average shedder that sheds year round.
Training
The Boxer is clever and quick to learn. Obedience training is essential. They require a dominant owner capable of controlling them. They do not respond well to harsh treatment. Training must consist of fairness, firmness, and consistency. Boxers do well in competitive obedience and love to learn and perform tricks.
Activity
The Boxer enjoys regular play and outdoor exercise. They thrive on playing with their family and do best with a medium sized fenced yard. It is important to keep them stimulated and occupied indoors to prevent destruction brought about by boredom. The Boxer will do okay in an apartment if they are sufficiently and regularly exercised.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Boxer puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

In one word: No! Your Boxer will not be alright on her own. Your dog is your pet and your responsibility. You would not leave a toddler on their own with food and water, so you should never leave your pet in that situation either. Do the responsible thing and find a boarder, friend or family member to take care of your dog. There are many different types of boarding facilities, from kennel to home-boarding one's. Friends and family are also a thing to try and see if someone can either take her for the three days, or live at your house with her, or at least go and check on her, feed her, walk her, play with her, ect. Please be a responsible pet owner and do not leave your pet alone. If your neighbors realize you are gone and call animal control, your pet can be taken away from you, you can be fined and even go to jail now with the new animal cruelty laws in place.

Has anyone heard of Boxer heart disease? I lost a 6 yr old German boxer do to Boxer heart disease and I would like to know how often this comes up. Boxer in perfect health!

I'm sorry for your loss. Heart issues are actually quite common in the Boxer breed. Heart conditions such as Aortic Stenosis and Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (the so-called "Boxer Cardiomyopathy") are the most common. It is said that breeders that screen for heart problems can lessen the likely-hood of their stock having heart issues, but it also is up to the owner. Pushing the dog beyond it's limits as a pup, as well as over-feeding or feed a low-quality food can also lead to heart issues in the Boxer breed. On average, heart issues within the Boxer breed account for more then 20% of deaths within the U.K health survey done within the span of a year.

If you plan on getting another Boxer. Please make sure that you get one from a reputable, knowledgeable, and qualified breeder. One whom does all of the needed health checks, including eyes, heart, hips, elbows and teeth. Said breeder should also be able to give you all of the health records of his/her breeding stock and pedigree so that you can see if heart issues occur in the lines or not. Contacting other puppy/dog owners as well will give you a good insight as to how the breeder operates and if heart issues have come up for any of her pups.

Information about Boxers Are boxer dogs kid friendly & do they do well with young active families??

1 Comment

Anonymous

The boxer breed is a family oriented breed. Doing your research on any breed of dog is vital before you go and get a dog or puppy. The Boxer breed is an active breed, so an active family is best. They are lovable dogs and enjoy being with their family all the time. If they are left alone for a long period of time each day, they can get stressed out and/or bored and can become destructive. But a tired dog, is a good dog. Remembering that, as long as you tire out your Boxer and give them lots of toys, chews and maybe even a friend to play with, he/she will be a great addition to your family.

What exactly is your question? Is it a real dog? Well, yes, it's real. Can there be such a dog? Well, of course, there can - when a boxer mates with a lab. Are you asking if there is a breed called "boxer lab mix"? No, of course not. The word "mix" is your clue here - it's half one breed and half the other.

How. Long do boxers live My boxer is 9 years old she not as active as she used to be

I don't think it's good to lead people to believe Boxers will live to be 10 years. Of course, they can, but if you're buying dogs from a Boxer breeder that does zero health testing, one has to know that heart problems can take a very young dog, as can cancer. After breeding them for 15 years, based on the comments and stories I get from new customers, I'd say average lifespan for a Boxer is 8 years. This, of course, includes the ones that die very young, and the ones that live a very long time, which for Boxers, is 13 - 14.

How long after birth does a Boxer's eyes open?

1 Comment

All puppies eyes will open about 10-14 days. Though their vision is poor until about 3 1/2 weeks. You will notice the eyes will appear blue, but this a milky appearance, and this will clear up at 3 1/2 weeks.

I hope you've seen a vet. My 8 yo boxer also has cancer. We've chosen to let him run his course. He's been very sick his whole life, and we felt that putting him through a surgery would only give him a short while more with us. You'll know when it's time for him to go. It's not easy, they're our kids, but you don't want him to suffer. Speak with your vet and get options from them, then decide the best course of action.

i know its tough for you to have to go thru whats happening to him right now -cancer is one of the boxer breed gentic faults that some can be disposed to-theres not much you can do except make sure hes comfortable if hes haveing a seizure and make sure that he doesnt get hurt while hes haveing one-there are medications he can be put on to keep this under control- you need to discuss this with your vet-as much as we hate to make the final decision as to what an animals quality of life is-you are going to have to face makeing that decision for him sooner rather than later at this stage of his life if the seizures get out of control or his cancer gets any worse-dont let him suffer-

Have you tried allergy medicine? I have a boxer that has something similar, and it is allergies. If it gets bad enough, I get the allergy medicine at Walmart, PetSmart, any pet store, and give it to her for a week, or so. Most of the time, within a few days it clears up. I think she has some indoor, but mainly outdoor allergies. Good luck!

is it normal for a boxer puppy's belly skin (not coat) to change color from pink to gray/black? My boxer puppy's skin has changed color, around 3 and 1/2 months age, and I am wondering if this is normal. There is no thickening of the skin, almost just looks dirty, like he got "dusty".

Has it been gradual, or all of a sudden? I could just be the pigment getting darker. I don't know what color your boxer is, but that is my guess, without seeing your puppy.
