The Boxer has a rippled, muscular look. Their dark brown eyes and wrinkled forehead contribute to their alert and curious expression. A well-shaped head and a broad, blunt muzzle are common characteristics of the Boxer. The breed's stride is like that of an athlete: sleek and effortless, with a powerful forward thrust.

The short, shiny coat of the Boxer is relatively maintenance-free and requires little grooming. Shedding an average amount, Boxers are clean dogs that only need an occasional bath. Once or twice a week, brushing your Boxer with a rubber curry-brush or a hound glove will help keep them looking their best.
