Maybe she was speaking from a health point of view? I have heard that boxers are not one of the healthier dog breeds. My mom once told a bank teller about the new puppy (Louie) and the teller asked what breed - as soon as my mom said "boxer" the teller says . . . Arn't they the dumbest dogs, my friend has two and they are very stupid - That woman had better count her lucky stars that I was not there. How incredibly rude!! My mom just replied " Actually, no they arn't - Our dog is very intelligent - The stupidity must lie with the people around them."
