ALL ABOUT LIVING WITH BOXER DOGS

October 20, 2019


– [Presenter] Dogumentary
TV, producing the best breed documentaries on YouTube. (dog barks) – For me, the boxer is the best breed, the most fantastic breed
because they are very loyal and intelligent and they
fit right into a family. My name is Susan Burnett
and I’ve been in boxers for over 20 years. When my husband and I
first got married we had Great Danes and started to
have our family with the Danes. And it went well, but our son
wanted to have his own dog. So my husband’s a
veterinarian and talked about what would be the best breed,
more of a medium large dog. And he very much liked the boxers because they’re very stoic when
they’re being examined. And they were pretty
trustworthy in the office. And he thought that
would be a good choice. So we got Amelia and she
was from a backyard breeder. And what I really liked about Amelia and picking her out was
when we went to pick her as a puppy, the father
of the dogs, the puppies and the mother were both on the property. And the father was playing out in the yard and the puppies were running loose and he ran and got a big beach towel. And he stood in the middle of the yard and all the puppies ran up. And he waited, he’s looking at ’em and they each grab a hold
and he ran through the yard, gentle for a dog and
they were flinging around and running, chasing,
barking, so he stopped and he did it again with them. I was very impressed that an adult dog would be that comfortable to want to play with the pups and have
a good relationship. So, we had Amelia and
from there, we went on to, Amelia lived to be 14 years of age. And I waited a year and then I decided I wanted to get into show boxers which might have been a mistake. No, it wasn’t, I very much enjoy it. And I got Biscuit and she’s
named after Sea Biscuit. I think a boxer when they
run are absolutely gorgeous. The stride when it’s correct is amazing. And to me they look like a race horse. So we had her for 10 years. For me the boxer is the best breed, the most fantastic breed
because they are very loyal and intelligent and they
fit right into a family. They actually make themself
a member of the family versus being a family dog. They’re great with children
and they enjoy being with a family either indoors or outdoors. They are very active and athletic dog, can go wherever the family goes. Which I would encourage
anyone who has a boxer if they’re going camping
or biking, hiking, walking whatever, they really
like to be with the family and be active. We’ve had poodles and we’ve had shih tzus and they were sweet little dogs, but they were very
comfortable going upstairs and laying on the bed
and being by themselves. A boxer has a tendency
to wanna be with you not necessarily right under your feet, but will follow you from room to room to really be a part of what
activity you’re involved in. Genetically boxers are bred from bulldogs so they have that
playful kind of attitude. And they’re from Germany originally and were involved in
police work over there. They are part of the working group. The big joke with boxers
is their work is playing which they enjoy doing. They are very prey
driven for the most part so you can do activities
such as a lure course, sheep herding, anything that involves
playing and having fun. What you have to keep in
mind with a boxer though, is that you don’t wanna over heat them. They always need to have water available. You do need to be careful
with how much water you give them because they
are a deep chested dog and you wouldn’t want to
have any problems with bloat or torsion with the stomach. The activities that I enjoy with my boxers is biking, and when I’m able
to, I do like to take them sheep herding. It is also a barn hunt
which involves them hunting for the rats that are
in little containers. They’re safe. It is amazing to see a dog be a dog. It’s a lot of fun to see
them have that prey drive, get very excited and act
like a dog out there. Very athletic, it’s
enjoyable to watch them. A boxer can be appropriate
for any age group. Any person who’s looking for
a dog that likes to have fun. What’s important though
is that you pick the right age of the dog for you. A puppy, up to the age of 18 months of age is very active, needs someone
who can exercise them. It’s very important if
you’re going to have a boxer as your pet that you’re able
to keep them in the home on a regular basis. They are very social, they
wanna be part of the family and part of what they’re doing. Our history, in our family
is that the dog always sleeps in bed with us or with the children. They’re very warm and they stay in place. A boxer is not the kind
of dog that you could put out in the back yard and leave alone. If you leave them out there
by themself for a long time and then you go off for a while. They will find ways to
keep themselves busy, And you’ll come home and be
disappointed in what they’ve done with the yard. They are very social and I
really can’t say that enough. If you’re gonna have a boxer
and you’re going to not be at home a lot, maybe
that isn’t the dog for you. Or, if you’re in and out, two
boxers are actually the best. The companionship is important to them. But being in the home is
also important because they are a good guard dog. But they’re gonna guard what
they think is their home, the family home. If you stick ’em out in
the yard all the time, that’s their home. That’s what they’re gonna protect. You keep them at home, you keep them in the
house, any kind of problem, they’re gonna protect you and the house ’cause that’s their home. Having a boxer in the house is nice, but you do have to be aware the fact that they are counter surfers. So you gotta be careful what
you’re putting out to defrost, you’re gonna have for
dinner or they will have it before you can get to it. They have a tendency to
jump on the furniture but can be taught that’s inappropriate as long as they have
their own chair that they can sleep on in the
room or one of the beds. As far as having small children visit, I would have the child sitting down before I have the dogs come in to greet them, because they do like to
get a little bit excited and joyful when they see someone new. With boxers, as with a lot of
large and medium large breeds, we have all hardwood floors or tile. If there’s any kind of
situation it cleans up easily and they don’t have a
lot, like the long hair like German Shepherd,
you’re not gonna have tufts of hair laying
around, but they do shed. And it’s much easier to clean up and keep the house clean that way. My husband’s a veterinarian
and we had discussions where I disagreed with him
on using crates for the dogs. It took a few years and a
few things being destroyed till I realized he was right. It makes for a much safer
environment for the dog when we leave. If we’re going to be gone
for any amount of time, to the grocery store, going to
the movies or out to dinner, the dogs are put in their crates. You do need to have a nice sized one where they can stand up, turn
around and feel comfortable. It leaves them in a safe environment, it leaves your house in a safe environment while you’re gone. As far as leaving the dogs outside, I never leave the dogs
outside if I’m going to leave the premises. I just don’t think it’s
a safe way to leave ’em. As the dogs mature, they
seem to be a little bit more trustworthy and at this
point, Charlie, who is six, he gets to stay on his
chair while we go out. And he does, he sleeps
there the whole time, guarding the house I’m sure. But he doesn’t get
himself into any trouble. I think it’s important
when you have a boxer that you do have them
socialize and have good manners because they do have a
tendency to get excited and jump around. So we try to have the dogs
not get on the furniture other than their chair and
of course their cushions that they sleep on. Since a boxer is such an active dog, it’s very important that
they have boundaries when they’re in the home. And part of those in our
home is that they stay off the furniture unless it’s their cushion or their chair that they can sleep on. They have to be invited
up to the bed at night. Well, the one who’s
going to sleep with us. And no counter surfing. And for that they will
be punished as far as being sent out of the kitchen. We don’t offer table scraps. Pancreatitis is something that you wanna avoid in all breeds,
especially in boxers. Our schedule is Buster Posie
wakes up at 5:30 every morning to tell us that it’s morning and that it’s time to
wake up and go outside. So the dogs are let out and then, I used to feed them at 5:30 but I thought that was a little bit early, so we’ve got Buster down to
seven o’clock in the morning, which he will start to
bark again because then it’s time to eat. We feed them twice a day,
at seven in the morning and five at night. And it’s important, because
they are a deep chested dog, as I’ve stated before, to
avoid bloat, you don’t want to over feed at one time. So we feed twice a day
and it is important also that when you feed them that
they haven’t been panting or working out. They need to be calm, in a
calm state when they eat. After the dogs are fed in the morning, I wait a period of time, about 30 minutes and then I will let them outback to play and run and do whatever they need to do. I like to take them either mid-morning and/or late afternoon
on a bike ride if I can. And then after dinner, we would wait a half
hour, let them out again and they are usually down
for the night between eight and 8:30. I live on a nice street and
it is amazing how many people walk by with their dogs in the evening, especially in the summer time. And when we first moved
here I really enjoyed walking the dogs too. But as I have matured, I’ve
got bursitis in my shoulder and I find that walking the dog, sometimes they pull and
need to be corrected, it does give me pain. So I’ve replaced walking
the dog with the biking. It’s very important if
you get an extension for your bike that you check it out, make sure it’s a good, reliable one. I have had some that have snapped off. The one I have now I really enjoy. And the dogs seem to enjoy
that kind of exercise. We’re also a household of multiple dogs and they do play a lot in the back yard and run off a lot of energy. And they’re very active and
get good exercise doing that. My friends come over, most
of them are boxer people. But I always encourage anyone who visits, when you have a boxer
out, that they not speak in a real high voice and get
the dog even more excited. Dogs are very social, they
are very excited to meet you so the last thing they
need is for you to get them even, ya know, more wound up. So talk in a normal voice
and to not wave your arms around a lot in front of
them even though I know you’re very excited to see them too. They will drool if you’re
eating and they’re sitting next to you, especially if it’s chicken or something they can really smell. They’ll build little bits. Or when I’m mixing up their food at night. They’ll look at me, I can
see bubbles on the side. But over all, they’re not
droolers, not like the Danes. According to the AKC, the
boxer breed is considered a clean breed because they
have a nice short, tight coat. They do need to be brushed
and you’ve gotta clean up after that. What I find is important is after they eat I always take a wipe and
clean underneath their eyes and around their mouth,
because they will hold, they have a bit of a jowl and
you can get food particles stuck in there. Keeps them a little bit cleaner. The reality of having a
boxer as a member of our home and in your house most of the time is that they are very protective so anyone who comes to the
door, rings the door bell, they are gonna bark. If it’s a male and I’m home alone, I will have to put the dog away because he will want
to be very protective. Of course, I’ll check first to make sure it’s a safe situation. As a family, if you’re
planning a vacation of course, what I find with boxers,
what works better is if you have a house sitter come
in if you can afford it. Or someone come by and walk them. They do much better if
you’re going to be gone for a period of time,
three days, five days, a week, they do much better if they’re in their own environment. They’ll eat better, do all that better. And for our family it works out the best. As a boxer breeder it
has been my pleasure to meet many wonderful people
coming to see the puppies. I try to get from the
people, the information on whether the activity
level is gonna match the activity level of the dog. Boxer puppies up to about
the age of 18 months are very active, they
need to be in a family or home situation where someone
can be active with them, walking them, playing
them, socializing them. And then as the dog
matures they might be more appropriate for an older
couple, which I was lucky enough to have come and visit. They stayed in our
apartment above our garage for three days, a couple from Oregon. They were in their early 70s. I had my questions about
whether they would be appropriate for her, but they
fell in love with Beebee. She was two years old and needed a home. And she is now eight years
old and she gets walked on a daily basis multiple
times by the owner. And she’s been on their fishing boat and had her own life vest with
her name embroidered on it. She’s had a wonderful life. A better life probably than
I could have given her. And I consider that a true
blessing as being a breeder to see a puppy go to a wonderful home and then seeing a mature
dog who you know needed more than you could give ’em. And you found the people that could do it. So what’s important with a boxer is that you’re matching the
activity level of the dog to the activity level of the person that’s going to have them in their home. In our household we’ve had
boxers with great Danes and boxers with toy poodles and shih tzu and we didn’t have any problems. Years ago we did have a
house cat with the boxers and that was fine. At this point in time, I would not choose to bring in a kitten or
a cat because boxers are very prey driven and that
might not end so well. But as far as starting with a boxer puppy introducing it to a cat or
kitten, there shouldn’t be a problem. It’s really important
to not over feed them. They will eat, many of them,
and eat and eat and eat. And they will get very large and it’s hard on their joints and their
life span will be shortened. So it’s important to watch the diet and to exercise them. It’s important that you have a diet, whether it’s raw or dry kibble that meets their nutritional needs. You don’t have to buy the most expensive, but you really don’t wanna
try to really cut corners on their diet and not meet their needs and then have other things come up. Obesity, conditions of the
coat, ears, allergies, whatever. All breeds have their diseases and the concerns with the
boxer breed are cardiac issues, DM, which is a neuro
condition of the spine, which is like ALS in human beings. And then cancers. As a breeder what we can check for and test for genetically are
some of the cardiac issues and also for the DM. When we go to breed a dog, we also do a cardiac echo on the dog and also a 24 hour monitoring of the dog. It’s important for people
when they are going to purchase a boxer puppy
that they ask their breeder if these things have been done. And then get the test results. Unfortunately, when DM strikes a dog, it is in their latter years,
usually over seven years of age, just when you think
they’re the best thing ever. And it debilitates them to
the point where you need to put them to sleep, put them down. They don’t get the longevity
or the quality of life. It’s very important,
it’s very important to me as a boxer owner and a breeder that anyone who purchases
a dog knows the DM status of the puppy. Puppies, boxers, whatever
dog, hopefully you make them a member of your family. And you should know that
you have a healthy puppy coming in and so that
possibly you’ll have longevity with that dog and an enjoyable experience for the whole family. I am a dog lover, and an animal person. And boxers are my breed,
they have my heart. I love their joy of living, their loyalty, their intelligence, their
activity, their athleticism, and what they bring out in me. I would encourage anyone
who feels that they want a dog that’s full of
activity and loyalty and love to look into a boxer. But what’s nice is, I
believe, that when you look at a dog or a puppy, they pick you. I really do believe that. And if you do your homework
and you look into it, you’ll know which breed is right for you. For me it’s the boxer and
all the things that I can do with them. The barn hunt, the rally, the
obedience which I don’t do but wish I did, the show confirmation, watch them run and turn. They’re beautiful animals. I just love boxers.

  1. A MESSAGE FROM DOCUMENTARY TELEVISION

    Hey guys thanks for watching the videos, to those of you who watch every video, double thanks. You all should know that it's my intention to film every dog breed. The order in which I film them is truly dependent on a lot of different factors, some of which are out of my control. I am a single person producing the content for this channel, so if I don't get to your request immediately, its not that your being ignored. Its a monumental task I'm taking on, please be patient and enjoy the videos as they come. Thanks!

  2. Your information is much appreciated. I previously owned a boxer and he became so very protective of me and he bit five people when finally he had to be put down. This devastated me for over 4 years but after doing some research I now am better prepared to be an owner of the special breed. I am currently looking for a boxer to enjoy and enlighten our lives. Thank you.

  3. I disagree with a boxer in A crate I have six boxer puppies at at home for an hour and they were same with the house

  4. Two words Bed Hogs. Had a boxer growing up and the running joke was my parents didn’t know which lump to shake in the morning, my boxer also loved to spoon.

  5. We have boxmass (boxer/mastiff) mix and he is the most loving & loyal dog we have ever had and extremely gentle for his size.

  6. best dogs in the world . owner of a proud boxer name June she's and the previous boxers I raised was nothing but love . Boxers rules

  7. Boxer mom to a 1 year old pupalup. Definitely still in his…umm..excited phases. Still learning his manners, specifically with strangers (people). He's so social and full of love he wants to jump and play and kiss everyone.

    Other dogs he's good, except when they bark at him (regardless of size) in a mean way.. he hides behind my legs (you ought to see him run from the yorkie up the street… comical.).

    Absolutely amazing dogs.

  8. Nobody loves Boxers more than me, but they're not particularly smart, as this woman alluded to early in the vid.

  9. I’m getting my puppy in 2 weeks and am super excited! Also, why do people not like their dogs going on the couch?

  10. Hi Susan. If getting 2 boxers whether be pups or young adults, which gender(s) do you recommend to get along the best?

  11. As a Boxer momma for 20 yrs. They are also not outside dogs do to their short muzzle. They cant take the heat in the summer. Also their coat dont keep them warm in the winter.

    CRATE TRAINING IS A MUST WITH BOXERS! Their Separation Anxiety is INSANE! Once trained and they know you're coming home. It eases….

  12. They're basically just a large French bulldogs. Identical personalities, just not as lazy as frenchies lol.

  13. Brace yourself for heartbreak when the time comes and old age strikes it broke our family and friends hearts when our George had to be put to sleep you never get over owning a boxer they are very special I now have a pomchi who I adore but wow the boxers are something else

  14. Boxer are the Best ‼️ I/we ( my family) have a Fawn color with Black mask , white foot ‼️ Copper is his name, We Love ❤️ him very much ‼️‼️

  15. Never been an animal lover, but while working in Bolivia one of our pilots upon the completion of their assignment and consequent return to the US they gave us a boxer dog they had …..Whisky (the dog's name) never saw himself as a dog…but rather another child…We had three kids and our maid has four more…..so whisky was the number 8 kid….I swear…that dog was human….loved the mutt….but my wife did not…..after my mission was done and we came back to the US…..my wife gave the dod to a local family….often I ask myself whatever happened to whisky….

  16. How can you pretend you love them when you cut their ears and tails like that. Cut yours instead and see if you like it!!

  17. Please stop Butchering Dogs Ears and Tails American Cousins , if You asked Breeders to do this it would stop the Ugly and Painful Practice for ever !

  18. I had my boxer for 13 years he was my boy miss him so much best breed I ever had, have a Mastiff now so similar blood line and alot of similarities

  19. I love boxers, they have a built in sense of fun and loyalty. My only negative comment is, I can’t believe in the 21st century that people still clip there ears. It’s unnecessary and although it may help keep their ears cleaner it’s normally done for aesthetic purposes, it’s done with other breeds to make them look more fierce ie guard dogs. Leave them how nature intended please👍❤️❤️

  20. Can't watch this,
    You do not chop dogs ears off or chop there tails off because you YOU think it looks good.
    You evil Satanist.

  21. I don’t believe in crates if they are grown,,, how will they protect your home if someone breaks in?? It happened to a friend of mine,,,,also if an emergency happens then they are stuck

  22. My saying has always been, a boxer is 3 months old till it dies.. They just keep that puppy-play all life 😀 <3

  23. She's so right about Boxers needing to be in the same room as you all the time. I have a dog bed in almost every room in my house! The only time my boxers aren't within sight is when they are outside zooming around and knocking each other into the dirt! But I don't agree with crates. I think that if you build a good relationship with your dog and train them well, they will stay out of trouble. Especially after the age of two. With every one of my boxers the destructive behavior stops almost completely once they reach full maturity. And my boxers free roam outside. They could easily take off and never come back, but they've been trained to understand what is our territory and where they are supposed to stay.

  24. Do you need to have a backyard for them? Can they live in an apartment (for when I go to college).

  25. Well done, agree with it all. Boxer's have been my kryptonite for many years. I can't image my life without one or two in my life at any given time. Another true bit of info. you ad 10 years to your life with each boxer. If you love to laugh, smile, cuddle and exercise, and if you have the time & space a boxer is for you.

  26. My cousin has a dog just like that and I got so scared of it , they had to put him in his cage 🤣 he kept jumping everywhere

  27. I have a boxer pit mix and he had anxiety if we leave him home alone we keep I’m in one room make sure we has water and food but make sure there’s nothing he can get into . So me and my bf are going to get a new dog so his not alone if anyone gets a boxer or boxer mix I would recommend getting two or another dog because they will get lonely if you leave them by there selfs

  28. My boxer killed chickens and an armadillo. I have a cat so I’m a little uncomfortable about keeping her around my dog. I think she knows not to hurt her though. All dogs are pretty much prey driven. She’s not an Assassin lol. I expect the same from any other medium to large sized dog. Other than that, she’s a great dog.

  29. I have boxers boomer and jude but sadly jude died because of my dad he kicked him and it killed him cause of death possible ruptured spleen so pls 1 like for jude RIP JUDE

  30. I don’t like the fact that some of the boxers had cropped ears. They can get ear infections easily, it may look good, but it’s not good for the dogs health.

  31. I am interested in acquiring another boxer. I owned several over the years. But, I’m in an area of the US where I don’t have the same contacts. Can you recommend a good breeder in my area.? [ Gulf Coast]

  32. I have a boxer named rockey :3
    He's about 4 or 5 years old. He has a food aggression problem but that's just one of his little kinks. You go to the bathroom he'll stay outside the door waiting there all sad. His tail is docked and its shorter then other boxers with docked tails but its cute i call him my stubby. He excapes though and he attacks dogs…but it's ethier because he doesnt like them or its because of food…he fights my other dogs lexi (american bulldog) and trinity (jackrussle/poodle) but lexi has been fighting back and putting him in his place and since shes been fighting back so he has realize that she wont take his shit anymore

  33. Lol none of the boxers I’ve had, worked with and met have never been barkers. Nature vs nurture. I worked with boxer show artists and breeders and I love this breed. Most of what she said is true, but it’s also how you teach at a young age.

  34. Nice, but none of the things she talks about are boxer traits lol She talks as if they are, but I'm seeing they apply to all breeds… even cats, so I think this is just more about her personal limited experience.

  35. I have always had Rotties, but, this is my 2nd favorite dog. I just loss a 10 year old rottie, and I want a companionship dog for my 6 year old rottie, and I might consider a boxer, simply from watching the intense love this lady displayed for her boxers, and the wealth of knowledge she shared.

  36. Sorry but aren’t they making their noses shorter and higher? Their profiles are actually dished. Couldn’t they use better sinuses? Sweet dogs.

  37. I get angry when I see someone cutting their dogs ears. If you dont like them the way they are, get a different breed!

  38. Today I saved a boxer someone tied it to a stop sign an called animal control I stayed with it for 3 hours had to cut tops off of water bottles for it to drink it was so hot petting it made me realize it’s on fire hot to the touch I had so many folks come up to me an ask if it was mine im a 24yo man an it makes me cry to think back on it so many people helped me get a bowl at Walmart after walking there with her. Someone been dead breeding her like crazy prob local crackheads tryna make a quick buck it disgusts me. In the next 48 hours I’ll get to see if I get her or not ima do everything I can an cal who I can to get her. She’ll be loved be cared for an have a loving family I’ve never had a dog my whole life. I wish I had more money to get her fixed an everything but in due time I will get her everything she needs but atleast she’ll have WATER AND FOOD AND LOVE! Not being treated horrible those people should be locked up 😭😭🤧

  39. How can people still think that the tails are docked for any other than cosmetic reasons. Every boxer in my country has their tale, my uncle owns a kennel for boxers and my family has had three boxers, none of them have ever hurt themselves or others with it. I mean it smacks quite hard against your thigh but that's about it. You think it's better for them to have it short just cause you know no better..

  40. I sought out this video because we recently got a 2 month old female puppy 🙂 We know for sure she's boxer but we believe she's mixed with German Shepherd. I grew up around a Swiss Shepherd (I think that's what they call them now, she was white) so I know a bit about the Shepherd part. I knew nothing about Boxers until now. Thank you so much for such a great video 💖

  41. Boxers are dynamite. She hit the nail on the head in this video. Keep their weight down, that’s a big factor in longevity, a fat boxer risks death 6-8 years. 9-12 years is found to be healthy averages of longevity. Got a have two, definitely.

  42. Great video. Can relate have had many breeds. Danes drool worse than boxers and danes and boxers make great family dogs. Boxers tend to bark only when they mean business. Boxers are also talkers … if you allow them to be. I found that boxers at an early pup age can learn to be self feeders that won't over feed if you get them use to a feed ball where they have to work for their feed. Boxers are a great breed … unfortunately short lived but don't let that short lived change your choice on the breed. Boxers are clown dogs who live their life in fast forward and won't disappoint.

  43. Sophia is are Boxer Girl she is 4 years old as you can see from the photo. She is such a God sent to us, my first ever dog and we wouldn't be without her. We love you Sophia. What I do not like is people who clip their ears and dock their tails. Dogs need their tails for balance, as for clipping the ears is just wrong to make them look aggressive. I find this more in the US, Here in the UK it is illegal to dock your dog's tails unless it is due to a medical problem, or injury.

  44. Love it when people who have never owned boxers talk about “when they are pups”. Boxer owners think, “they’re ALWAYS pups!!”

  45. I had one Boxer who died five years before at his tenth years age. He was so loveable to all family members, that we can't think buying another breed. But difficult to get one in our place.

  46. My only complaint, are other people. Obviously my boxer is hyper, and people get her even more wound up upon visits, and then comment on how crazy she is. If you just leave them be or be calm, she will read the room and mimic you.

    Greatest breed. They absolutely want to be a part of you everywhere you go. So well behaved and they really are great to bring camping or just out anywhere. Their goofy behaviour made me fall in love instantly.

  47. I loved your video. We are now on 4-5 Boxers. Our son’s first dog was a boxer for his 4th Birthday . lIronically both are rescues but one is from a breeder who was going to show her and breed her. He had 34 other boxers. Lexi came down with démodex mange and he decided not to risk passing to her pups so he let us have her. She was totally feral when we got her. She didn’t know her name or how to be a dog. She was (still is) terrified of men. It took a long time for her to let my husband into her pack. Now she absolutely adores him. But she is still fearful of any ppl she doesn’t know. At the dog park, she stays to herself mostly or will sniff other dogs but will skirt around anyone that comes near. Conversely, the other one is a true rescue from a local rescue group. He was found on the streets 4th of July weekend. Underweight a bit and a case of démodex mange. Why no one came looking for this magnificent creature we will never know but we are the lucky ones he picked to live with. He is a love bug. His only reason for going to the dog park is to get petted by everyone there. We were hoping Lexi would see that and want it too but we’ve had her 2 1/2 years and she hasn’t changed. Btw, she was 14 months old when we got her and she had not been socialized. It has been a long and sometimes frustrating road. But she is the sweetest and most beautiful girl. If we hadn’t gotten her, I’m certain he would have put her down. She was a liability he didn’t want to spend $$ on. I can’t imagine never having a Boxer in our home. Absolutely the best breed in my opinion!

  48. I love boxer dog.i have baby boxer name snoi my love and my darling.lot of love from India Punjab ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  49. If you like the dogs so much, why do you mutilate them by cropping their ears and tails? I bet you are a proponent of circumcision as well. See you at the synagogue you witch.

  50. I get angry when i see boxers with cropped ears and tails- That is pure madness.! In Sweden it is against the law to do that. I should be the law all over the world!

  51. I have a boxer, I work nights, 12 hour shifts and my Lilly has always been fine. She’s been amazing. I’ve had her 11 years. She’s also never crated. I would love to have another.

  52. If you love your boxer you dont crop their ears and tails…. shame on you! In Germany where they originally come from this is long forbidden.

  53. These dogs can be very aggressive towards other dogs. They are smart enough to try and eliminate your other pets including death. They will bite your other dogs and not let go because of bulldog bloodline. I don’t recommend fencing the Boxer with another breed unless you want several vet bills! And don’t leave one in the house alone unless you want your House or apartment in shreds!

  54. When my boxer and me leave the house she always has to be touching me lol when I'm standing in place or sitting she sits on my foot she's kinda shy but loves most people
