Boxer

The history of the Boxer dates back to nineteenth-century Germany, where they were used for hunting deer and boar. The ancestors of the Boxer include the Bullenbeiszer and the Barenbeiszer, which are now both extinct. The crossing of those breeds with the English Bulldogs of the 1830?s resulted in the Boxer as we know it today. Boxers were bred to be hunting dogs and they earned their name from the ?boxing? pose they are known to take when standing on their hind legs.
