Boxers were bred to be intelligent and noble guard dogs. While these dogs are definitely brave and smart, there’s more to it—the breed is also famously affectionate and goofy with their families, too!
Loyal and Loving
As a guard dog breed, Boxers bond tightly to their families and will love and protect you like you wouldn’t believe.
Despite being a guard dog, Boxers are absolute clowns and love to romp and play with their loved ones.
A Boxer feels that its job is to keep you, your loved ones, and your home safe from harm—and they take this job seriously.
Easy to Groom
While Boxers shed (as do most dogs), its short, fine coat is easy to groom and won’t leave a massive mess like some other breeds.
Despite their somewhat oafish appearance, these are smart dogs who crave learning new tricks, tasks and commands.
Boxers are energetic companions who need an equally playful owner. A well-exercised Boxer is a happy Boxer!
