Frequently Asked Questions:


 

Q. Will a Boxer be a good dog for my family?

A: Boxers are a working breed that are outgoing, energetic and athletic. They enjoy being an active member of that family, given a job or function; a hiking buddy, swimming partner, obedience/agility team mate. A true companion who, after a good days work is ready to curl up on the sofa and relax. If this reflects you/your family's lifestyle, then a Boxer would be a great addition.
