2016/5/3 14:05:59
Do you want to get a pet but don't have an idea what would be good for your household? If you are having rough time narrowing down your choices, then there are some questions you need to ask yourself. First off, why do you want a pet? Yes, pets can be demanding but they are also very rewarding. A pet can be there for fun, be there for a bit of camaraderie, and be there for when times seem to get tough. There is always a purpose to getting an animal. What kind of pet are you looking for? You have many of them to choose from. You can get a feline or snake, a hamster or fish. Still the most commonly picked animal today is the canine. There are many dog breeds to choose from. Do you want a Labrador? What about a German shepherd? However, the most chosen breed that people tend to bring home to their family is the boxer dog. Why not these dogs? They have a good natured attitude and are quite sociable. Do you know how these dogs got their name? When they stand upright, they look as if they have boxing gloves on.

How did the boxer dog come about? First off, you should understand that the boxer is a blend of the English bulldog and the Bullenbeisser. The Bullenbeisser breed is now wiped out. Since the boxer breed is a decedent of the two, it has three well liked traits. These include intelligence, loyalty and excitability. These traits make them useful as service dogs. You'll find many boxer dogs being put into police training or used for therapy. They may even get "employed" as a guard dog. Boxer dogs were first reveal in 1985 and the Boxer Club was started a year later. The American Kennel Club cataloged the boxer in 1904.

The boxer's head, skulls and muscles are impeccably portioned with its body. Boxer dogs have a short face with muscles that hang loose but have dense folds on both sides. Boxer dogs used to have their ears cropped and tails docked but this inhumane practice was later abolished. Boxers can weight anywhere from 50 pounds to 70 pounds. The coat of a boxer is usually smooth and shimmering. It may have a fawn or brindle coat; some boxer coats may have white bellies and markings on their paws and legs.

Check your local paper for puppy/dog classifieds. However, be sure you buy the animal from a reputable dealer who you should be dealing with. Check their backgrounds and their experiences. You may even want to check on their references. Should they belong to an obedience or breeding club...all the better. Make sure that the boxer you are bringing home is a purebred Boxer dog.
