Overview

There is no better dog than a Boxer for loyalty, intelligence, and boundless enthusiasm-whether it's on the agility course or guarding the backyard (usually from neighborhood cats!), the Boxer is always ready for the challenge. The Boxer, a true family favorite, has been valued for many years as a pet, protector, and service dog. Boxers are wonderful family dogs, great with children and sociable with others. They are willing to please and enjoy working for praise, making them a valued member of any household. Boxers have enjoyed the company of movie stars such as Bogie & Bacall, and have been used widely as assistance dogs, police dogs, and rescue dogs. It is difficult to discover another breed that can fill so many niches, or please so many people with such different needs.

STEPHANIE ABRAHAM fell in love with Boxers in 1953 after receiving her first Boxer as a child. A year after she married her husband, David, in 1970, the couple established Trefoil Boxers and acquired their first show dog. Since that time they have bred or owned almost 30 AKC champion Boxers. In 1982 Stephanie was licensed by the American Kennel Club to judge Boxers and had judged all over North America and abroad—including the American Boxer Club National and the Canadian Boxer Club National. She has judged many Boxer specialties in the USA, England, Australia, Japan, Brazil, the Philippines, and Mexico. She is currently serving her third term as an American Boxer Club Board of Director member and has written The Boxer breed column in the AKC Gazette for almost 10 years.

I have raised boxers for about 10 years. This book has come in handy more than a few times. It really covers all the basics as far as health, training and general well being. I would recommend it to anyone with one of these cute creatures..
