The Boxer Dog is a member of the Working Group. It is an alert, self-assured, fearless, playful and fun-loving dog. It gained its breed name because it strikes out with its front paws when it fights.
Often called the "Peter Pan" of the dog world, they seem to maintain that youthful exuberance until late in life. Their coat is short and only requires a quick weekly brushing in order to remove dead hairs.
His intelligence, loyal affection, and tractability to discipline make him a highly desirable companion. He is a medium-sized, square built dog with short back and strong limbs. His well developed muscles are clean, hard, and appear smooth.
