The well-conditioned middleweight athlete of dogdom, the boxer is a powerful dog with an intelligent and alert expression.
Although they are instinctive guardians, the boxer loves to be with his people.
This personality has allowed them to succeed as couriers during wartime and as seeing-eye dogs for the blind.
One of the breed's most notable characteristics is its desire for human affection, especially from children.
They are patient and spirited with children but also protective, making them a popular choice for families. American Boxer Club
