Boxers were the 10th most popular breed in the United States last year and it’s easy to see why: They epitomize everything people love about dogs. With the ultimate “puppy dog eyes” and their sweet, loving temperaments, they’re the perfect companion for people who prefer big dogs but want that lap dog kind of snuggle.
Boxer owners, similarly, have a list of characteristics that apply across the board. They may not be as straightforward as their dogs’ personality checklist, but they remain indisputable, no matter how esoteric they may seem. Read on, Boxer parents, because this is your truth.
