The History of Boxers

Boxers are related to the Bullenbeisser and originated in Germany. They were brought to the United States after World War I and later used in World War II as guard dogs, messenger dogs, and attack dogs. Boxer puppies have lean muscular builds and strong jaws which is why they were used to hunt wild boar and stag. Boxers would capture the prey until their owners came. After World War II, American soldiers took ex-service Boxer puppies for sale home to keep as pets.

Males grow approximately 25 inches high and weigh anywhere from 65 to 80 pounds. Female Boxers puppies for sale grow slightly smaller. They will be 21 to 25 inches high and weigh 50 to 65 pounds. Boxer puppies come in two colors – fawn and brindle. Their faces are usually black; however many have white markings on their faces, chest, and paws. Almost all Boxer puppies for sale look like they’re wearing white socks!

Health Concerns
