The Boxer – One of America’s Favorite Dogs

June 19, 2013

Terry Herring is the president of commercial operations at Mission Pharmacal, a pharmaceutical company based in San Antonio, Texas. A former board member of the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, Terry Herring enjoys a number of recreational interests, such as nonfiction books, the 1970 Corvette, and dogs, particularly Boxers.

First registered by the American Kennel Club in 1904, Boxers are now one of the most popular dog breeds in America. They were originally developed in Germany in the mid-19th century, where they were used to hunt larger game, including wild boar, bears, and deer, and later served as messenger dogs during wartime. Today, Boxers are used as watchdogs, service and therapy dogs, and police and military dogs.

Muscular and athletic, Boxers require daily exercise. They have short hair in either brindle or fawn colors and require minimal grooming. While they make excellent guardians, they are also affectionate and playful and generally have a good rapport with children. Boxers have an average lifespan of 8 to 10 years.
