Product description


The Boxer has long been one of America's best-loved dog breeds and this newest book is a true celebration of Boxers and why so many dog lovers have been, and continue to be, attracted to them. The Boxer: Family Favorite is the ideal book for the pet owner, novice fancier and veteran enthusiast alike. The reasons for the Boxer's solid reputation can be recognized throughout this bright, new book. Those seeking information on the breed for any reason will find all their questions answered by one of the Boxer world's foremost authorities. Like the other titles in Howell's Best of Breed Library, this book features chapters on all aspects of caring for, and enjoying a dog in and away from the home, and includes several valuable appendices.

From the Inside Flap

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.
