Boxers are stocky, muscular and powerful.

Boxers have regal, distinctly shaped square heads. Their jaw is undershot and the muzzle blunt. They have a broad, deep chest and a relatively short, strong back. Boxer's ears fold over naturally, but traditionally, their ears have been cropped to stand erect. Their tails generally are docked and carried high. Their feet are compact and the toes are arched.
The boxer's coat is short and sheds moderately. Some boxers are a rich, fawn color and others are brindle. Their face or mask is usually black, but many have white face markings and white on the chest and paws.
Boxers are intelligent, high-energy, playful dogs that like to stay busy. Their temperament reflects their breeding. They prefer to be in the company of their owners and are loyal pets that will fiercely guard their family and home against strangers.
They get along well with other animals if raised with them. However, boxers also have a reputation for attacking neighborhood dogs and cats if left to their own devices, so they should never be allowed to wander.
Few boxers bark excessively. If a boxer barks, chances are there is a good reason. Many boxers are vocal, however, and make a growling noise that's really just the dog's way of talking.success good morning quotes ahcc hpv success 2020 funny success quotes success vision conway ar probability of success pregnancy at 44 success stories podcast success metformin weight loss success stories 2019 key to success quotes cerebral success shark tank fresh success marketing group purdue success factors login dress for success charlotte success academy login letrozole success stories 2020 no heartbeat at 8 weeks success stories reading for success success positive affirmations family success center congratulations images for success success image success crossword clue palmers skin success success factors com measure success dress for success near me customer success manager resumes celebrate success quote john wooden success quote success companies unconventional success lichen planopilaris success stories fresh success continued success tattoo for success thesaurus success natural pregnancy after 40 success stories how to define success geritol pregnancy success stories 2020 preseed success rate success is not final failure is not fatal blighted ovum success stories bumble success stories morning affirmations for success our lady of good success novena low progesterone pregnancy success rates failure to success success for all motivational speeches for success school success mustang success center the road to success is always under construction success after recurrent chemical pregnancies ek success failure to success quotes what is the definition of success weight watcher success failure and success quotes dress for success atlanta lake success camping tethered spinal cord surgery success rate success is when preparation meets opportunity shoulder labrum surgery success rate clomid 100mg success rate will success spoil rock hunter? success vision paducah ky success motivated hair transplant success rate measuring success lipotropic injections success stories estrogen levels and ivf success lpr success stories iron dome success rate kitchen nightmares success success inspirational quotes for work probability of success calculator misdiagnosed blighted ovum success stories success meanings success motivators topamax and phentermine weight loss success stories 2018 progesterone weight loss success stories leapfrog leapstart preschool success tti success insights palmer skin success success mindset skin success fade milk wishing you success mirtazapine success stories
