The Boxer is a mastiff-type German dog with broad muscular shoulders and a short nose and an underbite. This look is fearsome for a guard dog, but they were actually used in hunting. There's some debate of where the name "Boxer" comes from, but one theory says it comes from the idea of the Boxer as a "prize-fighter" to highlight the breed's tenacity and bravery.
Styles and Colors
Boxers are usually cropped and docked for shows, but pets aren't always styled so I have featured both types!
