This breed got its name from the "boxing" like motion that the pups tend to make with their front paws. Boxers have a powerful bite with a strong set of jaws and are stocky and muscular in built. The adult male dog will grow to about 23 to 25 inches and weigh 65-80 pounds, which makes them a medium size breed of dogs. The breed normally has a unique expression of their faces, and their tails and ears are usually clipped. Another unique characteristic of the Boxer is their under bite.
Boxers are active dogs who love regular play and are bright and energetic.

Boxers are patient with puppies and smaller dogs, but they tend to have issues with larger dogs and same sex dogs.
