  5. 6. <ul><li>The boxer has a very short coat, and they only have one layer of fur, so you would only have to give them a bath every 3-4 weeks, and you wouldn’t have to take much time grooming them either. </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>The boxer has a very compact and muscular body, so they could run or pull hard </li></ul><ul><li>The muzzle on a boxer is short and blunt, for a tougher look. </li></ul><ul><li>Most boxer dog tails are cropped, but some people want to leave the full tail on, they also cropped the tail to make them look tougher. </li></ul>
