Boxers were originally bred in Germany as working dogs. They were used for hunting, guarding, and as messenger dogs during wartime. Over time, they transitioned into being beloved family pets due to their friendly demeanor.
Boxers are medium-sized dogs with a strong, muscular build. They have a square muzzle, a distinct underbite, and a short, smooth coat that can come in various colors, including fawn, brindle, and white.
