Boxers are large, muscular, tough looking dogs that can make you scared if you don’t know their character, but when you give them a chance and look them into their eyes you will see nothing but affection and joy. Because of their high energy levels and playfulness, they are sometimes called the “Peter Pan” breed of dogs. These dogs are fearless and intelligent, but most of all friendly, patient and gentle with their family and especially children.
They enjoy walking and running outdoors, but they enjoy cuddling up to their human family members once they are inside the house. They will be happy as long as you give them your love and attention and treat them with respect. Boxers are also extremely loyal to their humans and distrustful of strangers. However, unless their family is threatened, they will not show aggression. They are so affectionate and cuddly that they sometimes forget how big they are and try to lie on your lap. This breed of dog will amaze you with its gentleness, clownishness and cuddliness and there is just no way not to love them.
