Dogs - Boxer


The Boxer dog originated in Germany in the early 20th century. They are probably descended from the giant breeds of dogs that existed in Europe. Bulldogs were introduced into the bloodline, which produced a smaller dog. They were bred to be watch dogs. See Origins of dogs and development of breeds 

Boxers are happy, energetic, strong dogs. They love to play with the family. They need a big yard to run around and get exercise. They need discipline, so puppies should be taken to a puppy socialisation class. The master should be the pack leader!

Some folk say the boxer got his name from his habit of rising up on his hindlegs, and punching his owner with his front paws. (This may not be the true origin of the name.) Are they bad dogs? Naah! There are no bad dogs - just bad owners who don't train them. Are there bad people? Oh yeah! "But if we confess our sins, God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John, 1, 9

Boxer running through water. High energy! Papillon belongs to Moira Sturmair of Jeffrey's Bay. Moira says, "My dogs are my life savings. They bring lots of fun, joy, and love into a home. Life is full of stress and we tend to forget the basics of life. If you look at a dogs life, you will see what we are missing in life! So to all those stressed and lonely people: get a pet and this will do you wonders!"

Afrikaans folk sometimes call the dogs, "boksers."
