The boxer dog breed originated Germany (located in Europe) in the late 19th century. This is recognized as the standard. An amazing deal of this standard remains in today`s written standards from around the world. This dog was bred from the Alt’s Schecken, which was bred to a bulldog in the year 1895.
This resulted in the birth of the first boxer which was registered in the Stud Book in the year 1904. In the early lines, there was a high level of inbreeding which was done to set a type in order to establish the breed. In the earliest years of breeding, one of the most important dogs was the bitch named Meta v.d. Passage.
The breed descended from the early mastiffs. Their ancestors were used for wild boars and hunting bears and also to fight pet dogs when the hunt was ineffective. The bull dog fights were banned and the dogs often became watchdogs and circus dogs. The boxer dog is the result of the cautious and selective breeding of these pet dogs and it crossed over to other breeds such as the English Bulldogs and Great Danes. This was achieved in the 19th century.
He or she is recognized and designed for his attachment, cleverness, aptitude, defensive skill and learning abilities. This breed is a playful pet which is very high spirited and known to do a good guard dog.
They have helped us in a lot of ways. Not only do they look good but these dogs have played a vital role in investigating crime scenes.
Boxers often seem scary but they are one of the most fantastic dogs over the world. Boxers are capable of giving unconditional love to their dog owners. They are frequently mistaken to be violent but, actually, their looks are deceptive.
A lot of Boxer dogs end up being abandoned and deserted since they are used as just a protector or guard dog and are not given much attention. Even though, boxers are much capable of protecting their masters, the breed is not destructive by nature. Unkind dog owners cannot train or teach them aggressively which is why they are abandoned. This breed need to be trained with an even hand to get the best from him or her as a breed.
