Boxer

Boxer dogs were originally bred to be medium-size guard dogs. Today, although they are a part of the AKC’s Working Group, Boxers mostly find homes as loving family companions. That said, they still retain their high energy levels and need plenty of exercises.

Square-jawed and muscular, this breed is the George Clooney of the dog world–a looker with a sense of humour and an underlying sweetness. They adore their families and will also appreciate consistent training that doesn’t rely on harsh reprimands.

If you’re looking for a high-energy, easy-to-groom, family-friendly pooch, then this just may be the breed for you!
