Hazel, the boxer, is our perfect model for Boxing Day. When creating this post, we got thinking about the history of the boxer. The following is from a web site for which I’ll follow up with a link. Very interesting information. We have lots of beautiful boxer dogs at Lockerby Animal Hospital who are such sweethearts.
“The reason that the Boxer was even bred into existence, was that influential breeders of the time were looking to perfect a dog that would be: strong, able to hunt down prey and able to hold that prey as their human hunting counterparts caught up to the action.”
