My Boxer Hooch is a big bundle of joyful love. He is also a big bundle of slobber! Slobber every time I cook, slobber flying across the room when he shakes his head, slobber kisses in the morning when you wake up, etc...
If you can get past the slobber factor, boxers are great dogs for large families. They will pick an alpha and obey that person above all others, while still obeying commands from other family members . Boxers do not do well adjusting from pampered air conditioner life to living outdoors in the heat. Pick one and let them acclimate at a very young age. This loyal, loving pet makes a home happy and safe. They are not picky in their diet, love to play fetch, hang out and sleep, gentle giant to other pets, watch tv, pretty much whatever your personality is they will temper theirs to match it.
