Boxer

From Dog

The Boxer breed was developed in 19th century Germany from German Mastiffs and English Bulldogs.

Originally used as a hunting, fighting and working dog, it quickly became popular worldwide.

Boxers have a compact, square-built frame that looks equally elegant and powerful. Their lean, well-developed muscles are usually visible under the tight, unwrinkled skin, and they carry themselves in a proud and balanced manner. They have chiseled heads—in proportion to their bodies—with open nostrils and wide, blunt muzzles. They have strong necks, short backs, docked tails and straight front legs. Their taut, close-fitting coats can come in a variety of colors: beige, tawny brown, and shades of red with white markings.

A healthy Boxer can live as long as 14 years.
