Do Boxers Really Box?

My mom is still away from home, but she sent me some pictures! This is my new friend, Alexis. Alexis is a boxer and lives in Livermore, California, and is a neighbor of my mom's mom. Her daddy says she is small for a boxer, and she only weighs about 45 pounds. That sounds pretty big to me, because I only weigh 7 pounds!

I hear that she loves to chase squirrels, and is a very friendly doggie. She also loves to get her belly scratched, and lays on her back a lot, just in case someone wants to tickle her!

Did you know that boxers are the 7th most popular breed of dogs in the U.S.? They are a German breed, and originally were bred for hunting and holding prey. I guess that's why Alexis likes squirrels so much!

But what I really want to know boxers really box? Hhhmmm.....maybe some of my doggie friends know the answer to this question?

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my SMALL WORLD too, thanks!

I don't think I've ever played with a boxer, but my brother, Hobson said they sometimes box his ears when he plays with them. I think they might usually be naughty like us too. We don't take too kindly to dog obedience.
I signed your guestbook and I signed for Beau too.

Boxers I know them well they 'box' out when playing, which is very entertaining. They usually moan n groan, snort, sneeze, and just are generally funny about getting their opinion out. And they are the biggest lap puppies you ever could imagine. But, watch out for the not so silent but deadlies! This breed is capable of pealing wallpaper and making your eyes tear up - and tend to be proud of it! She is a pretty pup.

Hi JB! I am a German breed too, but I don't really hunt or hold prey. It's not in me. As for whether Boxers really box or not, you should have your Mom ask Alexis!

As for boxers wearing boxers......I don't know, but I thought I saw some other doggies wearing underpants on a blog out there, but I can't remember where! Do dogs wear underpants and why?
