The head is by far and away the most distinctive feature of this pooch with folds always running from the root of the nose and down both sides of the muzzle.

About the Boxer: Full of energy and playfulness, boxers really are man’s best friend. They make great four legged friends for children, whom they tend to be very good at playing with due to their patient nature. This breed of dog requires a lot of exercise, such is there extremely energetic approach to life. They love digging almost as much as they love chewing, but their number one pastime has to be giving their owner a great big lick.

Interesting facts:

  1. You need to clean their wrinkles. Making sure you clean in between a boxer’s wrinkles is an absolute necessity. These folds of skin can sometime be ignored due to the fact that they are out of sight, out of mind, however they are just as important to clean as anywhere else on the dog’s body.
  2. Interestingly, both the Germans and the allied forces used boxer dogs during WWll, with many of them receiving medals. Their loyalty and bravery in the face of loud noises and distressing situations meant that they were the perfect combat companion. 
  3. Celebrities love them and regularly use their pets to boost their instagram photos. Boxer dogs are more popular than people might think, given their previous association as guard dogs or as status dogs.
