BEHAVIOUR / TEMPERAMENT :
The Boxer should be fearless
self-confident, calm and equable. Temperament is of the utmost
importance and requires careful attention. Devotion and loyalty
towards his master and his entire household, his watchfulness and
self-assured courage as a defender are famous. He is harmless with
his family but distrustful of strangers. Happy and friendly in play,
yet fearless in a serious situation. Easy to train on account of his
willingness to obey, his pluck and courage, natural keenness and
scent capability. Undemanding and clean, he is just as agreeable and
appreciated in the family circle as he is as a guard, companion and
working dog. His character is trustworthy, with no guile or cunning,
even in old age.
