The Boxer dog was bred from the English Bulldog and the now extinct Bullenbeisser and is part of the Molosser group. The Boxer dog is a medium-sized, short-haired breed of dog, developed in Germany.

The coat is smooth and tight-fitting; colors are fawn, brindled, or white, with or without white markings. Boxers are brachycephalic (they have broad, short skulls), have a square muzzle, mandibular prognathism (an under-bite), very strong jaws, and a powerful bite ideal for hanging on to large prey.

The head is the most distinctive feature of the Boxer dog. The breed standard dictates that it must be in perfect proportion to the body and above all it must never be too light. The greatest value is to be placed on the muzzle being of correct form and in absolute proportion to the skull.

The length of the muzzle to the whole of the head should be a ratio of 1:3. Folds are always present from the root of the nose running downwards on both sides of the muzzle, and the tip of the nose should lie somewhat higher than the root of the muzzle.

A Boxers lower jaw should protrude beyond the upper jaw and bend slightly upwards in what is commonly called an underbite or “undershot bite”.

The character of the Boxer dog is of the greatest importance and demands the most solicitous attention. He is renowned from olden times for his great love and faithfulness to his master and household.

They are harmless in the family, but can be distrustful of strangers, bright and friendly of temperament at play, but brave and determined when aroused. His intelligence and willing tractability, his modesty and cleanliness make him a highly desirable family dog and cheerful companion. They are the soul of honesty and loyalty, and is never false or treacherous even in his old age.
