In this comprehensive Book of the Breed, the author traces the history of the boxer from its early days in Germany to its present role as an impressive show dog and a noble, loyal family companion. All aspects of caring for a boxer are covered, including diet, training, breeding and health. Jo Royle has been involved with dogs all her life. She has been judging boxers at championship level since the 1960s and officiates at breed shows all over the world. The boxer has spread from its original home in Germany to become one of the most popular show dogs and family companions in the world. The breed was carefully developed by a group of enthusiasts who wanted to produce the perfect guard, working and companion dog. The aim was to breed a dog with substance, pace, beauty and character, combined with intelligence and courage. Remarkably, the boxer matches up to this ideal. The breed is universally admired for its elegant, athletic good looks, and has proven its value as a guard and police work from the First World War onwards. ; 176 pages
