HARD WORKING MIX: Known for their square-shaped heads and their playful, energetic temperaments, Boxers are a popular working dog breed. They are a cross between two now extinct breeds: The Old English Bulldog and the Bullensbeisser, a type of Mastiff.
THE TOUGH PUP – Originating in Germany, Boxers are prized for their strong neck and powerful jaws. The first officially recognized Boxer was “Flocky”, who was entered in and subsequently won a dog show in 1896. There is some confusion over where the name “Boxer” comes from. A They are known to “box” with their heads occasionally, using the muzzle as a kind of club.
