Generally relaxed and mild-mannered, but also trainable and playful, most Boxweilers are a good choice for an urban pet when kept by experienced owners. Muscular and strong, this is a very impressive Molosser, capable of great speeds and valued for its stamina. The ears are left natural and the tail is usually docked, although most Boxweilers in Europe are unaltered.
The coat is short, thick and hard, preferred in solid fawn, red and brindled shades, but common in a variety of colorings, including black-n-tan and typical Boxer colors, with or without white markings. Average height is around 27 inches, but smaller examples can be found.
