The boxer dog breed originated in Germany in late 19th century. This is recognized as the standard. A great deal of this standard remains in today’s written standards from around the world. The Boxer was bred from Alt’s Schecken, which was bred to a bulldog in 1895.
This ended up being the birth of the 1st boxer dog which was registered in the Stud Book in the year 1904. In the early years, there was a high level of inbreeding which was done to set a type in order to make the breed. In the early years of breeding, one of the most critical dogs was the female dog named Meta v.d. Passage.
The boxer dog came from the early mastiffs. Their ancestors were used for hunting bears and wild boars, also to fight dogs when the hunt was ineffective. The bull dog fights were banned. The dogs became watchdogs and circus dogs. The boxer is the result of the cautious and selective breeding of these dogs and it crossed over to other breeds such as the Great Danes and the English Bulldogs. This was achieved in the 19th century.
The boxer dog is known and designed for their attachment, cleverness, defensive skill, and learning abilities. A boxer is a playful dog that is high spirited and known to make a good guard dog.
Boxer dogs have helped us in many ways. Not only do they look good but they have played a huge role in investigating crime scenes.
These dogs often seem scary to people but they are one of the most amazing dogs in the world. They are actually capable of giving unconditional love to their owners. They are often mistaken to be very violent but their looks are deceptive.
Many Boxer dogs end up being deserted or abandoned because they are used as just a guard dog or a protector and are not given much attention. Although they are very much capable of protecting their masters, the boxer is not destructive by nature. Unkind owners cannot train or teach them aggressively which is why they get abandoned. They need to be trained with an even hand to get the best from them as a breed.
