    Default Friggin Boxers...mad as hatters !!

    Deadset Boxers that i deal with at work are all freaking nut jobs !!

    2 that live together carry on like kangaroos on crack when i visit. Even the owner stands there shaking her head at the looneys doing zoomies and bunny hops.

    Then theres another 2 that are a bit suss on me...peaking around the corner, then taking off....then peak again 5 seconds later !! Cracks me up. Cant help but 'BOO' them when they poke their smooshed faces around the corner. Sets them off big time.

    I thought owning 2 Mastiffs was asking for trouble but 2 boxers would be a nightmare ...but a hell of a lot of fun i reckon !!


    Then today i came across a real old boy......all grey around the chops and as we confronted each other i thought..."oh ohh, this bloke might be a cranky pants".. but NUP !!!...tail started wagging, then he went into full scale boxer zoomies not scared of the 2 strangers or the smell and sound of the gas.

    Do these buggers ever stop ????.... i dont think i could keep up with a Boxer...maybe i'm in Mastiff mode.....lazy and snoozy. Boxers are just psycho balls of energy in a decent sized dog !!

    Loving em' to bits at the moment !!

    Must take some effort to train them ...especially to prance around a show ring, i'd imagine.

    Any other nut job breeds out there ??

    LOL, Hi Sean

    Your post just made me laugh out loud ... one boxer is mad enough, two would be a laugh a minute but I can't imagine the pain from two boxer tails!!

    I put my car in for a service last week at a garage about 3km from home. I drove up there and took Ruby, then we walked home. We had to walk along a really busy road and there was the morning traffic jam, and honestly I could just see people's faces going from "ho hum bloody work" to "jesus, look at that crazy dog" ... I just had to laugh too.

    As we left the petrol station and went from walking on concrete and then hit the grass verge, she goes "boing" and all four feet leave the ground, then when they hit the floor again, she grabs a tuft of grass in her mouth, then does the springbok jump again ... then down on the ground, the bum goes up, in crazy play position, then it's just bedlam. Mind you, this is all in the space of 50 metres from where we left the car!

    I thought she would calm down at 2 years old, but people just get hysterical with laughter when I mention this fact, and say to me that at 4 or 5 years old I could expect a small amount of slowing down

    I love the way you describe them, it is absolutely 100% accurate. Can just imagine you shouting "Boo" and watching their reaction!!

    Apparently black pugs are really REALLY naughty too not like their fawn litter-mates!

    When I was kid two boxers would get out and visit us, we had a black male labrador cross. Super friendly but would cut broggies through Mum's flower beds. Mum would ring up the owner who would ignore it and leave them with us all day. Mum started getting jack of it, then one day got a phone call from the owner. Apparently her pedigree boxer female had just had a litter with some little black shoo ins...hehheh. Our evil hound had obviously been taken advantage of by the little hussy. The daft owner seemed to think it was OUR fault..... some people (shakes my head)
    They do seem do be dogs of much personality.

    We used to regularly meet a really old boxer on our walks. He was walked by a friendly old bloke on one of those retractable leads. The first times we met him, he would bounce to the end of this lead when Banjo ran past him. I had to stop her from running near him coz I feared the old guy's arm would get pulled out of its socket.

    And almost every time when we met them, the boxer would end up sitting down, refusing to move, to watch us walk off. So very cute, but so very stubborn.

    I love Boxers, they are such lunatics, my friend has a matching pair and she has me in hysterics with tales of their antics
    Although we now know Brian is a coated Rottweiler when we first adopted him we were constantly asked what he was crossed with. We thought maybe Golden Retriever or GSD. My son sent for one of those saliva DNA kits which came back BOXER Complete waste of money.

    My brother is a boxer fan. And is on his 3rd pair. And i cant agree more, they are No1 in my so far met, hierarchy of lunatic dogs. EVER

    I leash trained the male for them, and they really do use up ALL 360degree's of that leash! Not just in front and behind, but UP and down too. Hilarious dogs, that i only want to watch on someone elses leash.

    Bernie's crew of morning dogs to walk with, included a boxer. Poor owner would meet us, let her dog off, then we'd all go after her dog, that would tear into herds, river, ponds, crevices, up banks and jumping off. I found their ability to 'disappear' amazing. One minute its on the ground, beside my friend Jane, the next its above her head, from a stand position, just took off vertically?

    Love boxers – also grew up with them ! They definitely live up to and suit their name as being the ‘clowns’ of the dog world !

    So...Yes? - Cheezburger

    Other dog breeds that I have come across that have heaps of personality and can really keep you on your toes:

    Italian Greyhounds; Boston Terriers and Pugs – definitely as 'findeb' says - the black ones have more of the devil in them - and my favourite breed – GSPs !

    This is so heartening to realise Ruby is not alone in her craziness ... bernie that description is so true, I am laughing reading these stories!

    I have learned that if I want to go out in public walking the dog and be observed as relatively normal, I have to fit Ruby's front fastening harness. If I know we aren't going to see any people, I put on another fleecy lined harness I got from CleanRun, and get a good workout for my arms ... one advantage of owning a boxer is that my arms are toned and very strong ... LOL

    The good thing though, is that when they crash out, they just fall asleep for hours, absolutely out cold!!

    Great stuff guys.... one crazy breed for sure. Such happy dogs that obviously 'infect' their owners with happiness. Cant go wrong with that .

    And they are a very cool looking dog also. Gotta love a smooshy face !!!

    Sean there may be a reason you like the look of boxers - I read somewhere that they are the smallest Mastiff, related way way back and so distant that it's no longer really recognised, but they still have that Mastiff DNA....
