What Dog Owners Can Expect from a Boxer

An experienced pharmaceutical professional, Terry Herring enjoys a variety of hobbies outside of his work as the president of commercial operations at Mission Pharmacal Company. A fan of Harley-Davidson, Corvettes, and history, Terry Herring also enjoys taking care of his pets: a horse, a teacup Chihuahua, and two Boxers, Lola and Monty.The Boxer is a stocky and powerful dog breed that is German in origin. Originally developed from Bulldogs and Mastiffs, Boxers were bred specifically to be hardworking dogs. Averaging around 21 to 25 inches in height and 53 to 110 pounds, they were often used to hunt and pull carts. Since the Boxer’s introduction to America in the 20th century, it has become one of the most popular breeds in the country.Boxers tend to be very high-spirited and enjoy playing games. They are eager to learn and very intelligent, making the breed good for competitive obedience. Boxers make great family pets, as they are friendly toward other pets and children. However, certain health issues often appear in Boxers, such as sub-aortic stenosis, epilepsy, and cardiomyopathy. Boxers are also more prone to hip dysplasia, as are many large dogs, and have a higher risk of developing tumors.Due to the Boxer’s smooth, short-haired coat, the breed is relatively low-maintenance. Regular brushing and bathing are typically all that is needed to keep a Boxer clean. Boxers are also able to live inside apartments or small households if they receive ample exercise every day.
