Common Boxer Dog Traits

For anyone who has ever loved a boxer, this is simply a no brainer... but believe it or not, there are people out there who have never had the experience of loving a boxer dog. This page is for you. According to the American Kennel Club, Boxers are one of the most popular dogs in the United States. See the AKC Registration Statistics and see how the boxer does compared to other breeds.


Boxer dogs are usually very friendly animals. In fact, it may be a hassle trying to keep your dog from licking your face off when he hasn’t seen you in a few hours. Nevertheless, you are the most important person in your dogs life…and he want’s to make certain that you know it.


Another common boxer dog characteristic is compassion.It may sound a bit strange, but it’s true. Boxers are extremely empathetic and loyal friends.If you have another animal in the home, your boxer will more than likely stay with them in the event they're not feeling well or may even try to cuddle with them hoping they'll feel better soon.


This is perhaps the best boxer dog trait...who doesn't love a clown? For me, my white boxer is more than playful and gregarious, but a downright silly old fool! He loves to rummage through the clothes after I do laundry and always seems to wind up with something inappropriate on his head.


In many cases, I would have to describe my boxer as Sweet.Boxers are gentle animals, but every so often they act in such a way that can only be described as simply "sweet". This means following you around the house for no other reason than because they can, tilting a sideways head at you when you make funny noises or just laying their head on your lap when your watching TV.
