Boxer breed was developed in Germany in late 19th century by crossbreeding the Bullenbeisser and Bulldogs. Bullenbeisser is a type of mastiff and Bulldogs were brought from England.
It is commonly thought that this breed’s name comes from the dog’s tendency to stand on its hind legs and box with its front paws, but it is not likely to be true.
There are lots of disputes about the origin of the name. Boxer dogs are very energetic and they need plenty of exercise. So, they need daily brisk walks, especially if they live in an apartment. One of their favorite activities is fetching a ball relentlessly.
