We got our new boxer puppy today. We decided on the name "Rocco". His parents have won all kinds of dog show awards, so we expect him to grow into a great dog.
We were wanting to get a dog that could be a guard dog on the property, but that would also be good with kids. Boxers can be very intimidating looking when they are full grown, but they have a great temperament with children.
We did quite a bit of research and decided that a boxer would be the perfect fit for our family. So far he seems to be a pretty mellow dog, and I look forward to starting to train him. It is important that he be well trained since he will be around children and visitors on a daily basis.
