The Beauty of Boxer Dogs

Boxer dogs are an all around great breed, especially skilled in hunting and police work, and are always alert and vigilant, making for a very instinctive guard dog. Boxer dogs can bring you years of joyful companionship with a life expectantcy of about 9 to 11 years, but they could possibly live as long as 15 years!

The Boxer dogs most developed sense is his sense of hearing. His ears are cropped and they stand erect, enhancing his sense of hearing all the more. He has a medium build, and is a strong and handsome, distinguished and lovable dog.

Some of his most striking features are his chiseled head, and his squared jaw, and his muscular body, and his dark, and soulful eyes, along with the furrow on his forehead. Whose habit is standing up on his hind legs to begin a fight, and who boxes with his front paws. That's how the boxer dog got it's name, by the way. He also likes to mimic your moods, and he will never bark without a reasonable cause.

The boxer dog is definetely not an outdoor dog. He needs to be kept inside the house because he is so sensitive to extremes in temperature. He certainly doesn't enjoy the scorching heat of summer, or the freezing cold of winter, or sleeping in a drafty place. It's because his coat is so short, and it cannont adequately protect him from the elements.

Boxer dogs are also uncomfortable in hot and humid weather, due to their short muzzle, so if possible he should be kept in an air conditioned room when it's hot and humid outside.

The full grown female Boxer dog stands at 21 to 25 inches at the shoulder, and can weigh anywhere from 50 to 65 lbs. Whereas the male boxer can be somewhat taller and weigh up to 15 lbs. heavier. Boxer dogs have a short, smooth coat, that comes in the basic colors of brindle & fawn. The fawn color can vary from tawny tan to a beautiful shade of stag red. Whereas the color brindle, can sometimes be sparse or in between, or dense.

One of the beauty standards for boxer dogs is their white markings or "flash" and it adds to their look and usually doesn't cover more than one third of their entire body. Even though some all white boxer dogs may be born in a litter.
