Country of Origin:

History:

Boxers have been found in Europe since the sixteenth century. Although they were originally hunting dogs, they are believed to be descendants of Tibetan fighting dogs and cousins of the bulldogs. They were used for fighting and bull baiting until the practice was outlawed in Germany in the mid-nineteenth century. Boxers have also been used as police and military dogs, performance dogs, and all-purpose companions. They were rarely known in the U.S. until WW II, when U.S. servicemen became interested in the breed. The name "boxer" stems from their tendency to use their forelegs when fighting.
