Boxers are a working dog breed that originated in Germany, with a heritage that includes bulldogs and the Great Dane.

Boxers have short hair, lean bodies, and square faces. They are smart and courageous.

Sometimes, they are trained as police dogs. They are also valued as family pets and protective companions.
