I've heard from almost everyone that has a boxer has said that boxers are good with children. A women last night told me that a friend of hers has boxers and if she were me, she wouldn't get a boxer if she had young kids. My girls are ages 3 and 6. We are considering getting a boxer puppy, but if they're not good with children, then I don't want to get one. Also I posted a topic the other day about my husband wanting to keep the puppy outside all the time. Well, I've been talking to him about it and he finally gave in and said we could keep it in the house. I'm so excited.
