Introduction

The Boxer - a beautiful, loyal, and affectionate dog who is also a great guard dog. Although the Boxer is a rather large dog, he is really just a gentle giant. He is very loving and rarely meets a stranger. In fact, a Boxer is happiest living inside with his family - even in a small apartment he is highly adaptable. He has a big personality, and he will meet you at the door daily to greet you as if you have been gone for a year rather than just a few hours. He is easily trained, especially when his owner provides rewards for good behavior. He is wonderful with children, and he is much more patient with them than other similar breeds. Naming your Boxer will be a joy - gather round the family and enjoy the process.

Boxer Dog Name Considerations

The Boxer is sweet, funny, affectionate, and often, downright silly when playing with his family. However, do not be fooled - the Boxer is always alert to his surroundings. He does enjoy clowning around and entertaining you and your friends. Although he might be leery of strangers at first, eventually he becomes accustomed to those who are regulars at your home. He will gradually begin to greet them much the same as he greets you as you return from a day at work or a trip to the grocery store. While he is a rather large dog, the Boxer is generally not an aggressive breed. However, if he feels that his family is threatened, count on him to be protective at any cost. 

What should you take into consideration as you chose a name for your new Boxer puppy? Many owners will study the looks of the dog - color patterns, unique facial features, etc. Some owners will wait a few days, play with their puppy and choose a name based on the personality of the pup. Some will choose what they believe is a "traditional" Boxer name, such as Bruiser, Buster, or Bear. Others have a unique name in mind before they even pick up their new puppy.
