5 Things You Didn’t Know About Boxers

July 2, 2018

Boxer puppies stand tall and proud and hail as one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States.

Boxers for sale are constantly winning the hearts of families. Whether it’s their sometimes goofy and playful stances or their upright and regal poses, they are loved. Instead of technical talk about the Boxer breed, we’re going to share 5 less commonly known things about Boxers for sale. Take a look!


  1. They’re Runners

The roots of Boxers can be traced back to the now extinct Bullenbeisser, which was a dog of Mastiff and the English Bulldog descent. Also known as the Boxl, it was trained to hunt large game such as boar, bear, and deer. They were exceptional hunting companions, because they were extremely fast and held a rightful reputation for its powerful jaws. Today’s Boxers for sale are still regarded for their athleticism, running 38 to 45 miles per hours, making them one of the fastest dog breeds.


  1. World Record Holder

It seems there’s a category for everything, so there’s no wonder that Boxers hold one. The Guinness World Record for the longest dog tongue in the world belongs to a then 7 year old Boxer. In January 2002, a Boxer named Brandy, had a tongue that measured 17 inches long. The previous long tongue title holder belonged to a Pekingese with a mere 4.5 inches.


  1. Served in the War

Before Boxers for sale were household and family favorites, they were originally and almost exclusively used as working dogs in World War I. They were used as messengers, pack carriers, guard dogs, and attack dogs. After World War II, the soldiers brought the dogs home and they were rapidly integrated into domesticated and family homes.


  1. Black “Boxers” Aren’t Boxers

Boxers for sale are either one of two colors: fawn (tan) or brindle (a tan coat with black stripes). The boxer dog breed does not carry the gene for a solid black coat; therefore, purebred black boxer dogs do not exist.


  1. Common Health Concerns for Boxers

When you purchase Boxers for sale, you should know that the most common health problems associated with them are:
