The Seven Deadly Sins Of Boxer Dogs

the seven deadly sins of boxer dogsIn my opinion, boxers are more human than any other breed of dog, or animal for that matter. The broad range of emotions a boxer experiences are quite apparent.

But, these human traits they display come with a price – boxer dogs have baggage.

If you already own a boxer, you may have noticed that they have…umm…weaknesses. As people, we understand we are not perfect and are susceptible to weakness. Well, boxers are no different.

Here are the seven deadly sins of boxer dogs.

1. Lust


: a strong desire for something

We all know our boxers desire may different things. From your spot on the couch to whatever you happen to be eating, your boxer lusts for it.

But what does your boxer really lust for? If your dog is anything like mine, it’s kisses.

Oh, yes, the inevitable boxer slobber kiss. It can not be avoided and is rarely prevented. Whether you like to make out with your dog or try your best to avoid his advances, it WILL happen.

Cue the romantic music…

2. Greed


: a selfish desire to have more of something

Although boxers can be the most loving dogs on the planet, they are very greedy.

Think about it. How many times has your dog wanted something that he didn’t need? Or taken something that wasn’t his?

I can’t even roll over in bed without my boxer greedily sliding in, stealing my spot and hogging the blanket. Not to mention the little trick boxers pull by stretching their legs out, pushing you off your couch or bed (I know it’s not just me).

It would appear this boxer is taking it one step further, stealing the poor cat’s bed.

3. Envy


: the feeling of wanting to have what someone else has

Everyone knows that boxers envy. What they are envious of  just depends on the moment.

On any given day my pooch can suffer from cat envy, dog envy, couch envy, spaghetti envy, tic-tac envy…you get the idea.

Yes, boxers are an envious bunch. If you’ve ever owned more than one at a time, you know exactly what I’m talking about. You’d better not pet one without petting the others.

There’s one thing I know for sure: if you have multiple boxers, NEVER walk one without the other!

4. Wrath


: strong vengeful anger or indignation

Although your dog may not throw fits of rage every day, boxers may be internalizing some serious wrath.

We see the signs everywhere. From their looks of contempt while you wolf down your dinner to their bottled up jealousy of your other pets.

Boxers may appear gentle and loving, but don’t poke the bear…

5. Sloth


: the quality or state of being lazy

For as high energy as boxer dogs are, they sure know how to be lazy.

How many times have you found your boxer crashed out on the couch and had to check his pulse?

6. Pride


: a feeling that you are more important or better than other people

Pride can be a great quality to have. It is great to be proud of yourself, your family, friends, etc.

But be careful; too much pride can lead to a boxer that may want to spend his leisure time without you. In fact, your boxer may even think he is better than you…

: greedy or excessive indulgence

All dogs are known for their limitless desire for human food.

Boxers are no exception.

    Yes, they are dogs with such character. I love them. The wide variety of emotions make them such super pets. The great thing is that they see life as one big game. Perhaps we could learn from them. The article is not judgement but loving tongue in cheek observation.

  3. Terri Winter says:

    I have had almost a dozen boxersbof my own, and I have fostered for a bit over a decade. There has not ever been a more loving breed and they are all do different. You find one loves to cuddle, the next doesn’t sit still. I have also found them to be the most loving and silliest of characters. I could never imagine my life without one.
