Developed in Germany in the 19th century, the Boxer was bred for dog fighting and hunting large game. The Boxer thrives on human company and affection. Patient, spirited and protective of children, he makes an excellent family dog. He will exhibit wariness and curiosity with strangers and fearless courage if threatened. The Boxer needs little grooming but does best with daily exercise.
