How are Boxers as pet?

Insane!
Do not trust the descriptions you read about the breed. They are grossly inaccurate! They are not an active breed. That is a gross understatement! They have only two speeds: sleeping and hyper-conductive-ultra charged-supersonic-lightning speed.
When they grow up they seem to absorb the energy emitted from the earth and they seem to charge their batteries from the sun. This gives them a virtually unlimited reserve of energy. If that energy isn't sufficiently drained by workouts they can be very destructive.
The Boxer requires a lot of exercises. My daily routine was:
  • Wake up and take the dog for a 30-minute walk
  • Go to the clinic
  • Come home during lunch to eat AND take the dog for a run or put on a treadmill!
  • Go back to the clinic
  • Come home after work and walk the dog for 5 km and 30 minutes at the dog park.

The last bit could be interchanged with:
  • Run with dog for 5 km/10 km AND 30 minutes at the dog park.
That was my daily routine which took a serious toll on my body. I could not keep up with my girl.
They are quiet. Very quiet. Which is great.
They are very protective.
They are goofy. They always think about playing. That's all they do!
They slobber, a lot. Drool bubbles are cute until they shake their head or lay their head on your leg.
They are very powerful. Since they're already high energy, that power can be a hazard.
They're terrible actors. They like to pretend. But their body language communicates something else.
They're smart. Very smart. It is possible for them to outsmart their owner.
They're strong enough to jump over 6 ft tall fencing.
They're loyal and are very social. They require daily attention and integration with their family. They do not do well in isolation.
They have difficulty regulating temperature.
Their farts are deadly.

They have difficulty regulating temperature.
Their farts are deadly.
They don't have a long life expectancy.
They're the most emotionally expressive dogs that I've ever owned.
They're the most “human” in a sense.
Training is a must to keep them busy and mentally occupied. They like to use their brains and they will use it in ways you do not want them to.
They're fearless.
They're extremely gentle. They seem to have a self-awareness about them.
They're extremely good judges of character.
They will ruin the experience of dog ownership for the future. A lot of Boxer owners cannot see themselves owning a different breed.
It is advised to bring two Boxers into the family because they can reduce the work required to care for them. They will tire each other out, and keep each other company.
They can eat up your budget for toys! They will eventually have a favourite toy to play with.
They will make you laugh on a daily basis.
This is my female, Hennessy, pretending she does not want my popcorn. But as you can see, her drool bubbles paint a very different story. She's a terrible actor.

This is my male rescue, Moose. As you can see, he thinks he's a lap dog. He is passed out on my belly, all 90 lbs. of him.
They're a lot of work. But I think the Boxer is well worth the effort. They aren't the breed for everyone as their requirements are pretty heavy towards the high energy draining area. They need lots of exercise and mental stimulation.
