Boxer Dogs & Puppies for Sale

The Boxer is a medium-to-large athletic dog and a popular breed amongst canine owners in the UK, Europe, and the USA. They were initially bred from the old-style English Bulldog and developed in Germany as a hunting mastiff in the late 19th century.

Boxers have high energy levels and make fun and affectionate four-legged family companions. Their looks are distinctive, with an upward pointed muzzle, round brown eyes and a black "face mask". These social canines love to be around people and have a patient and protective nature, making them excellent guard dogs.

Meet the Boxer dog

The Boxer is a medium to large dog, weighing between 50–80 pounds and standing 21 to 25 inches tall. They have very muscular bodies with a strong back and a square head, in perfect proportion to their body. They have short, tight-fitting coats that will be either fawn (anywhere from light tan to mahogany) or brindle (fawn with black stripes). Many will have white flecks on their chest, face, and paws, too.

They have many distinctive features on their faces, including a wrinkled forehead and floppy ears that give them a sweet expression. In addition, they have black rimming around the eyes and nose, creating the appearance of a face mask and adding to their adorable appearance. Plus, their round chocolate eyes are to die for, and the muzzle that points upwards oozes cuteness too.

Unfortunately, Boxers struggle in extreme temperatures. Their coat doesn't keep them warm in challenging winters, and their short nose makes it difficult to cool themselves down in hot climates. Therefore, they are not outdoor dogs and need to be kept indoors.

Like all pedigree dogs, Boxers do have some health predispositions. For example, the breed is prone to cancer and aortic stenosis, a common heart defect. Moreover, you'll also need to look out for Boxer cardiomyopathy. This inherited condition can cause their heart to beat erratically and, if left untreated, can be fatal. However, as long as you buy a Boxer from a reputable breeder on The Pedigree Paws, they should be fully healthy and live for 10 to 12 years.

The temperament of a Boxer

Boxers are a bundle of joy and are playful, fun, and friendly. In addition, they are incredibly loyal and protective of their owners, which makes them fantastic guard dogs. However, Boxers tend to distrust strangers, so early socialisation is critical with this breed.

Even if your Boxer is not super friendly towards strangers, they are not known to be aggressive. However, they can take their role as a bodyguard a little far and sometimes misunderstand whether something is a threat to their owners. Thus, it's essential to train them to listen to your commands early to prevent any unwanted behaviour. Luckily, Boxers excel in obedience and agility training, quickly learning good manners.

Boxers love to be involved in family activities, and their favourite pastime is to clown around with their humans. Their high spirits will put a smile on your face no matter how bad your day has been, and their quirky "kidney bean" dance move will never get old. In fact, Boxers make a wide range of unusual but hilarious movements from twists to jumps.

Boxers can get bored with routine, and they thrive when their owners keep them on their toys, teaching them new tricks or introducing unknown games. However, this does mean that when left alone for hours, they can become restless and agitated. They do not play independently, so they will release their boredom and frustration by causing mischief. Therefore, they need a home where there is always someone around.

10 reasons to add a Boxer to your family

  1. They served the police and military - The Boxer has an interesting history as a working dog. They have worked as police dogs, guide dogs, and they even served the German army during World War I as messengers and scouts.
  2. They are loyal and protective - As a result of their working history, Boxers naturally take on the role of your protector and commit to keep their family safe.
  3. They are brilliant with children - As well as protecting young kids from harm, Boxers are patient and love to gently play and clown around with them.
  4. They will keep you fit - If you need an excuse to become more active, a Boxer is it! These dogs need regular walks and don’t tire easily so you’ll soon see the pounds dropping off you after a few weeks with a Boxer.
  5. They are goofy - These cheerful, playful pups are hilarious during play sessions as they combine jumping and twisting into a funny dance move.
  6. They love to cuddle and kiss - A Boxer wants to show its affection to its owner regularly, so expect lots of cuddles and kisses from this adorable canine.
  7. They are easy to train - Because of their strong connection, Boxers are alway eager to engage in training sessions with their owners and learn commands and tricks well.
  8. Their coats require no grooming - Unlike long-haired dog breeds, you don’t need to bathe your Boxer or take them to the groomer. Plus, they don’t shed much either.
  9. They are adorable! - The sweet expression and “puppy dog” eyes of a Boxer make it hard to say no to them.
  10. They have cool facial features - Of course, we can’t forget the Boxers distinctive wrinkles and black face mask, which make them both cute and beautiful.

Best homes for a Boxer dog

Many people choose a Boxer dog to guard their house at night. However, a Boxer is a people-oriented dog that craves affection and wants to be part of the family. Moreover, they are not well-suited to homes with other canines, as dog-to-dog aggression is common with this breed.

Boxers thrive with people who lead active lifestyles and involve them in it. Thus, they make a great companion for someone who enjoys running, hiking and camping. However, they need human interaction every day, not just on the weekends. So, if you work full-time and there is no one else home, a Boxer is not ideal. This is why they do well with large families where there is always someone around.

Frequently Asked Questions About Boxer Puppies

Why should I choose a Boxer from The Pedigree Paws rather than elsewhere?
It's essential to buy a Boxer puppy from a reputable and experienced breeder who breeds healthy and well-natured dogs. At The Pedigree Paws, we work with top Boxer breeders in Britain and Europe who take the health of their dogs and puppies exceptionally seriously. We are firmly against puppy mills; thus, we only work with moral breeders who raise their puppies in clean and healthy conditions and socialise them well. Therefore, you can have complete confidence that you will not be supporting unethical breeding when you buy a Boxer from The Pedigree Paws.
Is a Boxer the right puppy for me?
Boxers are not for everyone as they need an owner who has plenty of time for them. However, they thrive with both available and active people, as they have high energy and need lots of walks. So, if you work from home and go for daily walks or runs, a Boxer could be a fab choice. They are also ideal for families as their protective and patient nature means they make excellent friends for young children. What's more, they do best in homes where they are the only dog.
Is The Pedigree Paws trustworthy?
Unfortunately, due to the continued operation of puppy mills, reputable breeders are not always easy to come by. However, at The Pedigree Paws, we have selected the highest quality and top-rated Boxer breeders in Britain and Europe. To ensure they are reputable and trustworthy, we conduct comprehensive checks before accepting their application. The rising number of excellent testimonials from our previous customers shows our diligence and transparency is paying off.
Are Boxer puppies from The Pedigree Paws healthy?
Unfortunately, purebred dogs like Boxers are prone to certain health conditions, some of which can be serious. Therefore, it's vital to buy from a reputable breeder who breeds only fully healthy dogs. Because of this, you'll be pleased to hear that our breeders always run DNA tests on their breeding dogs to ensure they have no health conditions that puppies could inherit. Moreover, every Boxer puppy will have a thorough health check and examination with a licensed veterinarian before we allow the breeder to list them. The vet will also vaccinate, deworm, vaccinate and microchip your new baby Boxer.
When can I receive my Boxer puppy?
The first two to three months of a puppy's life is essential for its development and socialisation. Part of the breeder's job is to ensure your new Boxer is healthy, well-developed and socialised to humans and other animals. Because of this, every puppy from The Pedigree Paws stays with their mother until they are eight to 12 weeks old. This is in your best interest, too, as early-weaned pups often develop behavioural problems.
Can I see the parents of my Boxer puppy?
Yes, we completely understand how reassuring it can be to see the parents of a pedigree puppy before committing. Therefore, we always allow our customers to video call the breeder to see the puppy and the parents. Witnessing that your new Boxer pup comes from two healthy, friendly and even-tempered dogs will put your mind at ease.
Will I receive the pedigree documents of my Boxer?
Purebred puppies like Boxers are not cheap, so, naturally, you want proof of its pedigree status. Therefore, you'll be pleased to know that all our Boxer puppies come with official records from an international dog breeding organisation. Thus, you'll receive pedigree documents for your new pup from a pedigree association like AKC, FCI or The Kennel Club.
Do your Boxer puppies come from good breeders?
As animal welfare is our top priority, we only work with trustworthy and reputable Boxer breeders. We have a thorough application procedure to filter out dog breeders who don't match our high values or meet our requirements. For example, we only accept a breeder if they prove that they treat their puppies and breeding dogs like human family members instead of money-making products. Our breeders also meet the strict breeding guidelines of international pedigree clubs like AKC and FCI. Therefore, you can trust that your new Boxer will be fully healthy, even-tempered, and friendly around people.
Are these Boxer puppies raised in a family home or breeding facility?
We only work with dog breeders who raise their puppies in their homes and do not keep them in cages without their mothers. Growing up in a family home dramatically impacts a dog's temperament as the environment is excellent for their socialisation. Thus, it prepares them for an effortless transition to their forever home and new owner. Furthermore, they receive attentive care and stay with their mum until they are fully weaned and ready to leave. As a result, we don't work with puppy mills. These organisations do not deliver the care or socialisation that Boxer puppies need, leading to future behavioural problems.
How can I help my Boxer settle into its new home?
Bringing a puppy home is an exciting time for both the pup and you. However, as it's such a big change for a young canine, they may feel overwhelmed or scared at first. Therefore, we recommend following a few steps to ensure a successful first introduction. Before your pup arrives, set up their bed, food and water bowls and put down some pee pads. Then, when they arrive, calmly greet them, keep them on their leash and slowly introduce them to their new home, showing them where everything is. Furthermore, make sure their bed is in a quiet and safe place and put a warm hot water bottle under their pillow for extra comfort.
