A Boxer is an uncomplicated, upright and cheerful breed from Germany. His cheerful, friendly nature makes him very popular as a pet. Boxers are curious and eager to learn. They are also good guards but not heavy barkers. They are energetic and alert yet very sensitive. For example, they immediately pick up certain moods and are extra sensitive to rough commands or anger. These highly intelligent dogs are very attached to their roommates. They are forgiving and with a consistent upbringing are ideal family dogs.
A boxer male has an average shoulder height of 57 to 63 cm. The boxer bitch, on the other hand, is slightly smaller at 53 to 59 cm. As a result, the weight of a male is also slightly higher than that of a female. The weight of a Boxer is on average 30 to 32 kg for a male compared to 24 to 25 kg for a female. Boxers have a short, hard, close coat that can be smooth or brindle. The coat goes evenly from light yellow to deer red. Brindle, these dogs generally have a lighter coat color with blacker markings. In any case, boxers have a black mask.
You should brush the coat of a boxer regularly with a rubber brush. It is also important to regularly clean his skin folds. Adult boxers need quite a bit of exercise. They like games, with or without the ball, and romp with roommates. A boxer also likes to take a brisk walk. Dry it well in rainy weather because this variety is sensitive to rheumatism. Also protect it well in severe drought or heat. A happy Boxer can live on average 8 to 10 years old.
