Boxer Dogs 101 – Top 10 Boxer Facts

Boxer Dogs 101 – Top 10 Boxer Facts


Intelligent, high-energy, playful, loyal … just
a few words that accurately describe the Boxer. They were one of the first breeds employed
as a police dog, and have been used as seeing-eye dogs. But they are perhaps best known for being
loyal family pets that are especially fond of children. These are just a few of the many cool Boxer
Dog Facts. Hello, welcome to Animal Facts, today we discuss
the the athletic and alert canine companion, the Boxer, but before we get started take
a moment to subscribe for more fun fauna facts. If you like this video, hit that like button,
if you don’t like it, there’s that other button. Let’s Get Started. 10. Boxers are descendants of extinct bullenbaiser
breeds crossed with mastiff, bulldog and possibly Great Dane and even a terrier. They were developed in Germany in the 19th
century, initially as bull baiting dogs and later as butcher’s helpers, controlling cattle
in slaughterhouses. Some breed historians say boxers are named
from the German word boxl, their slaughterhouse designation. Other fanciers contend the name boxer comes
from the characteristic way that they use their forepaws to play, sparring much like
a human boxer. Which one do you think it is? Let us know in the comments below. 9. While a member of the working group, the Boxer
can and will herd. In 2012, the AKC changed the rules and added
Boxers to the list of breeds eligible for herding titles. According the American Boxer Club, In 2010,
one Boxer surprisingly bemused Border Collie handlers with her calm, focused attention
on the stock! They also excel at obedience, agility and
tracking. In fact, 16 Boxers have earned a Versatile
Companion Dog Title. 8. According to the American Kennel Club, The
Boxer was one of the first breeds used for in Germany for police training. It makes sense, considering the breed was
developed there for intelligence, courage and workability. 7. All White Boxers Are Deaf. This is a myth, according to the Boxer Aid
& Rescue Coalition Inc., as only 12 to 14 percent of white Boxers are deaf due to lack
of pigmentation of the hair cells in the ear. They are undesirable in-show dogs, however,
because the AKC does not permit a dog with white covering more than one third of its
body in the conformation ring. The Coalition adds that no one should breed
white Boxers, however, due to their higher deafness rate. 6. Since the 1940’s, when the Boxer rose to
popularity due to its consistent success in the show rings, it has been one of the America’s
top breeds. In 2015, they were the 10th most popular breed
in terms of AKC registration numbers. Boxers gained popularity in the United States
when soldiers returning from World War II brought the breed back with them. Boxers soon became a favorite companion animal,
show dog and guard dog. 5. They seem to be popular in Hollywood as well. According to the Boxer Daily, there are a
ton of celebrities with pet boxers. Some include: Hugh Jackman, Cameron Diaz,
Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake, Luke Perry, Ryan Reynolds, and
Chelsea Handler. 4. Boxers are known for their unusual head shape. According to the breed standard, their snouts
are meant to be half the length of their skull. This, coupled with an undershot jaw and strong
teeth, helped boxers bite and hold on to their prey. Boxers were bred to be able to clutch animals
in their mouths until their owners arrived, while their short snouts allowed them to breathe
all the while. 3. The record for “Longest Tongue on a Dog,”
belonged to a boxer named Brandy. The record-breaking tongue spanned an impressive
43 centimeters (17 inches). For comparison, the longest human tongue ever
measured was only 10.1 centimeters. The Gene Simmons of dogs lived in Michigan
with her owner, John, until she passed away in 2002. 2. These dogs suffer from some serious Peter
Pan syndrome. It takes boxers about three years to reach
maturity, making their puppyhoods one of the longest in the dog world. But, who’s in a hurry? As puppies and young adults, Boxers are animated,
playful, goofy dogs who love to romp and jump. Middle-aged Boxers typically become more deliberate
and dignified and make calm, loyal companions for the rest of their lives. They have an average lifespan of 10-12 years. 1. Even though they are high-energy, boxers are
not outdoor dogs. Their short snouts make it difficult to distribute
heat in the summer, and their short fur isn’t suitable to keep them warm in winter weather. Boxers are known to snore loudly. They also drool a lot. And like most short-muzzled dogs tend to be
a bit gassy, due to gulping air when they eat. [Fart sound] Ewwww… he tooted. Well, there ya have it, Boxer Dogs 101. Are there any Boxer Dog Facts we missed? Let us know your favorite facts in the comments
