Bred in Germany,the Boxer is a breed of stocky, medium-sized, short-haired dogs.
The coat is smooth and tight-fitting; colors are fawn or brindled, with or without white markings, which may cover the entire body.
Boxers are brachycephalic (they have broad, short skulls), and have a square muzzle, mandibular prognathism (an underbite), very strong jaws, and a powerful bite ideal for hanging on to large prey.
The Boxer was bred from the Old English Bulldog and the now extinct Bullenbeisser, and is part of the Molosser group.
