Pictures Of Dogs Biography
Bruno, (left) a 5-month-old brindle Boxer puppy with Allie (right) a 7-year-old fawn Boxer, out for a walk—Boxers are high-energy dogs and need to be walked daily; without proper exercise they can get themselves into a lot of mischief. Be sure to walk your Boxer beside or behind you, keeping slack on the leash (no tension); never let him pull in front of you. The pack leader goes first.
"This is Midas, my first Boxer. I researched this website extensively to find the best breed for my family since we have 3 children, the youngest being only 1 1/2 at the time. Wow, I cannot get over how WONDERFUL Boxers are! My now 3-year-old can squeeze him and dress him up and run over him with her doll stroller and he doesn't care! He is a big goofball, but is very smart. He learned to "give paw" in 5 minutes. He has a toy we call his "baby" and he will always run get it if you ask him where it is. I love Cesar the Dog Whisperer and have found that he was right on when he tells you to exercise your dogs! If Midas isn't getting enough exercise with us, you can guarantee he will be sneaking into the recycle bin to create his own game of "fill the yard with milk jugs." Don't get mad at your dog—go spend some time with him! We are now looking to add a second Boxer to the family, and don't think I will ever own another kind of dog!"
"Amie taking Bruno the Boxer for a walk off-leash—Amie was able to communicate with Bruno that she wanted him to heel next to her by calling him over and using a hand signal to not pass her. If he got a few steps ahead she would simply touch his back with her fingers or make a sound and he would slow down. Since Amie is 100% pack leader Bruno is very responsive to her commands. Without saying a word if Amie turns, Bruno turns. If she stops, he stops. He is happily and willingly following her."
"This is a picture I took of my male Boxer, Jordan. I think he's about 7 years old, but I'm not sure. Jordan is a very special dog. Like a lot of dogs, Jordan was rescued from a very bad situation. He was extremely emaciated, he had no hair, covered in parasites, and extremely afraid of everything. He could barely walk when I got him. I have owned him for about 7 months now, and he has all his hair back (too much, actually), has gained a lot of weight, is MUCH happier, but most importantly he is no longer afraid of people. With spending a ton of time with his socialization, training, and guidance, he is now a well-balanced dog. I don't exactly know what happened to him before me, but it doesn't matter anymore, anyway. Jordan did have all sorts of bad behaviors at first due to his neglect which included: excessive barking, digging, pulling, jumping, etc. Typical "bad dog" behavior. But with all the walks and adventures we go on he is not only well-balanced, but truly happy. I am his "Guardian Angel." He has the sweetest personality. He gives hugs and kisses. He is my suction-cup when we are outside together; he has to be by me always. I love it! He is happiest when the whole family is out in the backyard playing together. (He is very much a part of our family, even stays inside now, after some time housetraining). He was never aggressive toward anything or anyone. He loves his "girlfriend"! (My other Boxer Baby Girl who also is a rescue). I've owned/rescued numerous dogs, but Jordan has reall touched my heart."
