Incredible Family Dogs & Some of the Best Boxers You've Ever Met

Overview

The Boxer is an amazing and quite unique dog breed. He was developed in Germany in the late 1800's from the pairing of the Bullenbeisser, which is now extinct, and the Bulldog. Boxers were bred, at first, for hunting. With their strong bodies and powerful jaws, they excelled at this. 

Later, as the breed spread across Europe and into the United States in the early 1900's, the Boxer was then used extensively as working dogs, and more specifically as military dogs. German forces used Boxers in WWI and America and Great Britain used Boxers in WWII. 

Today, the Boxer is a very popular family dog. He has held his place in the top 10 most popular dogs for decades. Boxer clubs exist in almost every country around the world. 

Per the AKC, the Boxer was #7 in 2013, #8 in 2014 and #10 in both 2015 and 2016. Per the Kennel Club (UK), the Boxer ranked #14 in 2013 and #13 in 2014. Per the FCI (Fédération Cynologique Internationale - which has over 80 member countries), as of this writing, the Boxer ranks #9. 

To highlight just how incredible this breed can be and the wonderful ways in which the Boxer fits into families as irreplaceable members, this section will feature profiles of really awesome Boxer dogs and their owners.
