Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
An intelligent, loyal pet, the boxer has a high need for companionship and exercise. They are not happy when regularly left home alone.
Boxers are active and playful dogs that like to stay busy. Their temperament reflects their breeding. They prefer to be in the company of their owners and are loyal pets that will defend their family and home against strangers.
Leo and Raph are good with friendly dogs at home. Leo is also friendly with other dogs socially however, like most Boxers Raph may not back down if challenged.
They are always excited when people come home but might accidentally knock a small child over. They don't mean any harm.
They are beautiful dogs - fun, playful, loyal and rather entertaining.
Active singles or couples who want companions with them most of the time.
They are ok for full time workers (9am-5pm) as long as they are a central focus when people are home and have a medium to large interesting yard.
While they are good with kids we recommend homes where any kids are at least teenagers and only if gentle and calm around dogs. No dog deserves to be rough housed or exposed to a loud, chaotic environment.
They will not suit homes where people live in very close proximity to each other with small outside areas e.g. villas, units, apartment complexes, terrace houses, strata complexes etc.
As they are people orientated they need to be part of family activities.
They will not suit homes with residents that are:
Reason For Rehoming?
Regrettable but necessary decision due to sudden ill health. The dogs have been very well looked after.
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Will alert to something strange but are not currently nuisance barkers.
Raph and Leo will suit any of the following:
Medium - playful and moderately active (can miss a daily walk).
When ON a lead ...
Like most dogs they start off pulling but settle unless distracted. Leo is more inquisitive and wants to play where as Raph prefers a good walk.
When OFF a lead ...
They are not usually allowed off the lead but once when let off in a paddock they came when called.
