The Back Story:


Country/Date of Origin: Germany/late 1800s

This is a breed whose exact beginnings are known. In the 1880s, George Alt who lived near Munich, created a new working dog by crossing a Bullenbeisser--a mastiff type dog that is now extinct--with an English Bulldog. The first dog to be considered a Boxer was a second generation of that mixture. The breed is one that combines power and agility. There is also a good head on the Boxer’s working shoulders. It is so suited to doing man’s bidding that it has been a favorite of police departments, military trainers and guide dog organizations.

The first was registered by the American Kennel Club in 1904. Boxers have had a slow and steady climb in popularity and are now firmly fixed in the top twenty breeds.
