The Boxer is a breed that is known for being stocky. We like to consider them the big brothers of the pug. They are part of the brachycephalic family (breeds that has broad, short skulls) and also have a square muzzle. They have strong jaws with a powerful bite which is made to be able to hold on to really large prey. The American Kennel Club describes them as the seventh most popular breed in the United States.
Boxers are very intelligent dogs that will grow super big easily but will remain a puppy at heart for a while. They are bright, energetic, and playful as a breed which makes it necessary to keep them mentally stimulated and physically active on a regular basis. A bored Boxer can be problematic because he or she will start to chew on things, lick things and dig into things.
It is important to remember that while boxers are harmless to their family and to their loved ones, they can be very distrustful of strangers. While Boxer temperament can be friendly and bright during play, they can very brave and determined when they are aroused. They are intelligent dogs that should be trained well so that they know how to respond to their master’s commands.
