So happy with our boxer puppy. He was in great shape when we picked him up after his flight. He has already become a loving member of our family. First time using puppyspot, we had a good experience. Updates with emails and pictures helped as we were excited and waiting for arrival day! Thank you!
Boxer dogs were originally bred to be medium-size guard dogs. While they may be considered "Working Dogs" by the AKC, they often find homes as loving companions and family pets. However, Boxers are notorious for their high energy levels and will require plenty of exercise and playtime to prevent acting out and escape attempts.
Boxers were originally bred in Germany and were brought to the U.S. after the first World War. While their short, shiny black or brindle coats are striking and require minimal grooming, it is worth noting that white or mostly white Boxers are not desirable due to their genetic predisposition to deafness associated with a white coat.
Boxers are large, muscular, square-headed dogs who look imposing--that is, until you spend a moment playing with them and realize they're just big softies. Often weighing between 60-70 lbs and standing 21-25 inches at the shoulder, the Boxer has an intimidating presence until you get to know them.
Because of their playful nature and boundless energy, they make great family pets or running buddies. Boxers aren't considered fully mature until they are three years old, meaning they will have puppy energy long after other dogs of similar stature. Abundant energy, courage, and strength are some of the key characteristics that make them so useful when working with the police and military. When trained properly, they also make fantastic guard dogs and can restrain an intruder with ease.
With their abundance of energy, Boxers naturally excel in obedience training, agility courses, and Schutzhund--which is a demanding three-phase competition that measures a dog’s tracking, obedience, and protection skills in a unique manner.
How dog-friendly is Montana?
Montana is a great place for dogs, especially in the summer – with gorgeous outdoor space and plenty of room for adventure.
The state ranks pretty consistently in the average range for overall pet-friendliness but has great strengths in animal welfare and dog-friendly attractions.
We reviewed two significant studies that rank all 50 states by pet-friendly factors. The first, by animal advocacy group Pawsafe, ranked Montana as the 34th most pet-friendly state.
The second, by consumer safety review site Safewise, ranked Montana quite low at 45th.
The state scored very well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards. However, because of its harsh winters, and less access to pet services in rural areas, Montana took a hit.
Combining these two studies together put Montana towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
