The Boxer, an athletic and powerful breed of dog, is not known or marked as a particularly vicious or dangerous breed of dog. However, they are instinctive guardians and impose their force on any person who they think is a threat to their family members or domain.
The Boxer is a popular choice for families because of its desire for human affection, especially from children. They are a patient breed but also have spirited and playful personalities, perfect for active families. While the Boxer requires little to no grooming, they do require daily exercise to manage their exuberance and to burn off their high energy levels.
