If you’re into dogs like American Bullies, Boxers and or Neapolitan Mastiffs, then it can be assumed that you are also quite fond of the Boxer breed of dog. Boxers are basically a cross between Old English Boxer and the now extinct Bullenbeisser. Sadly, the reason behind the extinction of Bullenbeisser was excessive cross breeding. Being founded in the year 1895, the Boxer breed has remained as one of the most famous and preferred dogs in the US for years, holding the position of the seventh most popular dog in the United States of America for four consecutive years as per the 2013 American Kennel Club statistics. Currently it holds the position of the 11th most popular dog in the US. However, Boxers not only enjoy popularity in the United States. They fall under the list of the most favourite dogs all around the world, India being one of those many countries.
According to the breed standards the head of a Boxer must be perfectly proportionate to the body and must never ever be lighter. The ratio of the muzzle to the whole head should absolutely be 1:3. A distinctive feature of the Boxer are the folds that appear around their nose and mouth and run down their muzzle. Their lower jaws often protrude more than their upper jaw forming a slight bend called the “underbite” or the “undershot bite”. Having their origin in Germany, Boxers were initially a docked and cropped breed. However, in recent years the cropping of ears and docking of tails have been prohibited in many countries. Boxers have a light short coat lying tight to the body that mostly come in colors like fawn and brindle accompanied by a white underbelly known as “flash”. These “flashes” are found to extend till the neck or even face. Boxers are also generally very good with children apart from being fearless, bright, energetic and playful.They even work well both as a domestic dog and a guard dog, making them much more desirable and preferable than a lot of other breeds of dogs.
All the above mentioned points help strengthen the fact that Boxers come with a lot of benefits. But like every other pet on this planet, nothing comes with only pros. Boxers have a lot of cons attached to them like their stubborn behaviour, frequent fits of boredom causing them to chew on stuff and so on.
