Is a Boxer Right For You?

This is part of a series of videos submitted by the great team at MyLocally.com

If you are looking for an affectionate, loyal, intelligent dog, a Boxer would be an excellent choice. Boxers were originally bred in Germany during the 19th century as hunting companions. Their name comes from the dog’s tendency to stand on its hind legs when threatened, batting at its opponent — or boxing — with its front paws. Their powerful bodies and loyal dispositions make them ideal guard dogs.

The patience and affectionate nature of Boxers also makes them perfect family pets. They enjoy the company of humans and are playful with children. The breed is a popular choice for service as seeing-eye dogs for the blind.

The Boxers featured in this video are named Zania and Daisy and belong to Shawna and Mike. Zania is 6 months old and Daisy is 6 years old. They both love spending time playing with their family and taking long, brisk walks together.

Dogs Understand Live, Love, Laugh Like No Other!

One of my favorite artists is Stephen Huneck and our guest room includes one of our favorite prints by him! Stephen Huneck painted pictures of his beloved labs in his studio in my beloved state of Vermont. I am a facebook fan and love to see the featured prints and to visit their site Dog Mountain.

I thought I would share some of these great prints with you all.

If you are ever in St. Johnsbury, VT stop by Dog Mountain!
