I got talking to the owner of this beautiful, big boxer dog while taking a walk to Coxheath. had been adopted from a local dogs home – apparently his former owner gave him to the home because he was too much of a handful and caused lots of damage. He just looked a bit playful to me – but he is a big, powerful dog. The trouble with the Boxer breed is they need lots of exercise and attention otherwise they start ripping your living room to shreds. You can’t leave them home alone too often because they will probably get bored and boredom will lead to lots of tearing, ripping, licking and possibly pooping. You run the risk of getting back from work and finding your sofa in pieces and most of young Timmy’s toys mysteriously nowhere-to-be-found.
