Meet the Boxer, a unique breed. The boxer wants to meet you,
your children and other members of the family.
In fact, the Boxer's strongest characteristic
is his desire for human affection. This may come as a surprise
to those at first impressed by his striking appearance. The
spirited bearing, square jaw and cleanly muscled body suggest
the well-conditioned middleweight athlete of dogdom so fitting
for his role of alert family companion. Others, perhaps will
first be taken by his arresting beauty. The short, smooth coat,
handsomely chiselled head and square silhouette never fail to
excite compliments from passersbys as he trots jauntily by your
side with neck arched and cropped ears and tail held erect.
Yet the Boxer's greatest wish is to be with the children, watching
protectively over their play.
The ideal Boxer is a medium-sized, square built
dog of good substance with short back, strong limbs, and short,
tight-fitting coat. His well developed muscles are clean, hard
and appear smooth under taunt skin. His movements denote energy.
The gait is firm, yet elastic, the stride free and ground covering,
the carriage proud. Developed to serve as guard, working companion
dog, he combines strength and agility with elegance and style.
His expression is alert and temperament steadfast and tractable.
So we see the Boxer as a "DOG FOR ALL SEASONS"
- suiting the need for household guardian, attractive walking
companion and especially, children's playmate and protector.
