The German police used to use Boxers for their strength, agility and believe it or not, intelligence - they are capable of being trained to a high standard despite being the clown of the dog world

I find the smaller the dog the more aggressive and bitey they tend to be. Problem is when you do get an aggressive bitey big dog it’s going to do a lot more damage than a little one.

We’ve got a mongrelly thing now no idea what she is. A bit of staffy, bit of lurcher, bit of ridgback maybe. Most of the time so looks very cute but when she feels threatened she can get quite scary looking to those who don’t know her. Hackles and ears go up, teeth come out, muscles tense, veins pop and the deep growls and barks start and suddenly she’s like the devil dog which can be quite embarrassing. Never starts anything but certainly finishes stuff. Never attacked anyone or anything though thankfully just threatens it. Very strong pound for pound but not very big so easy enough to pull her away when she does get fired up.

Was much easier when we had a Labrador she looked nice and behaved nice all the time.

They're only as good as the training

Winston, our 4yr old male Boxer is brilliant with the grandkids, loves the grandaughter (17months), soft as anything, but not many people come in the gate when he's outside.
Max our previous male, was a brilliant soft dog but hated other dogs mainly because they always seemed to go for him. Still he was very well trained and his aggression to other dogs was trained out of him but if attacked he would retaliate.
Millie, our previous female was big by KC standards, as was her father, broad shouldered, strong dog, but so soft it was embarrassing lol. That's where Max came in and balanced the pair.
