We have a dwarf boxer/German shepherd mix. Although Bella Dolce has the colorings of a shepherd, her personality and the rest of her looks are definately Boxer! I've owned many breeds over my whole life and I have never had such a playful breed! Bella is quick to play when she's not eating or sleeping and could play all day. If you have children, this would be a great breed for you. Bella is very smart, quick to learn, but very opinionated when she doesn't want to do something! She is a definate "people dog" and likes everyone. Although Bella went into a bit of depression when I was recently in the hospital for 4 days, she rallied once I came home. I am her pack leader and she reconizes me as such. My husband was home, but she obeys me better than him.

I have a 17 month old flashy fawn boy. He brings a smile to my face a hundred times a day. Every morning we join our friends for an hour of off leash running and playing. At night we spend an hour on leash in the park or walking in the neighborhood. Yes, he does require a good deal of exercise,but my family is rewarded with a fairly well behaved dog. He has the spirit of a child in a dog's body. I absolutely love the breed and wish I had not waited so long to get one.

Boxers are great big lap dogs. Highly entertaining clowns who bore easily. Their feelings are easily hurt. They look for jobs to do. Make sure it is one you want done. At one time the only dog recommended for small children, they were the first Seeing Eye dogs. You will get hooked if you ever have a boxer. My first Boxer came home when I was 6 months old-- 55 years ago. Today I have 3 and have been volunteering for boxer Rescue LA for 19 years. Leash training is a must as they distract easily and will pull you over to investigate that fallen leaf.

Excellent, and described my Boxer perfectly! I find Boxers to be one of the best-natured dogs, finding everyone his friend. His protective nature does come out occasionally,but at appropriate moments. I never thought I would have wanted a dog of this size, but I have fallen in love with the breed!

I think that this Boxer Overview does not do justice to the dogs breed. While they are people dogs and very affectionate it does not discribe well what it takes to be a boxer owner. You must have more than normal patients with these dogs and you must walk them 2 too 3 times a day. There is no budging on this. The people who do not walk these dogs send these dogs to rescuse or pounds. They are easily trainable but you must be more intresting than a falling leaf or a peice of fuzz on the floor. Your patience with them is a must. Your personality must fit the mix of fun loveing and Highly dominant.To own a boxer you must want a dog that will cuddel with you and one that you can keep indoors. They are not out side dogs.

Living with a boxer is like living with a 3 year old child for the rest of your life. They require many toys to keep there intrest. They keep these toys all over the house. These dogs tought me to over come my anxioty for a clean house. I was defeted at every attempt to keep a clean
The discription you have is one that fits any dog owner.

I love my boxers!!! They are not a dog for everyone
