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.



  1. I've heard the same things about boxers. He's a fine lookin' dog!

  2. He's good looking! Bet the kids will really enjoy him, and learn some lessons from him.
