I have been searching on the Internet for information on Boxers as boar hunting dogs -- their original function -- and I have found a couple of forums where a few individuals in Europe assert that the Boxer makes a great dog for boar hunting.  However, a few respondents who have Boxers claim that their own Boxers would not hunt if their lives depended on it.  :roflol:

My guess is that we find here a temperamental difference between Boxers from different regions.  I assume that Boxers used for SchH are probably good for boar hunting (plenty of breeds are, apparently) just because they are a little more 'drivey' in terms of prey drive and are a little 'harder'.

I just thought that i'd start out the new year by stating that I read that in Australia the premier boar hunting dogs are Boxer mixes and Great Dane mixes. The Boxers are usually crossed with Bull Terrier, and the Danes are crossed often with Bullmastiff. The large prey that these dog breeds were created to catch no longer prevail in Europe, but there is still plenty of giant boar in Australia.

Crossing a short-muzzled breed with a long-muzzled breed in both cases solves the problem of heat exhaustion. In both cases also a rather lithe, athletic German dog is being crossed with a very muscular British dog.

Now, these crossbreeds could be what Australians resort to if there is a lack of American Bulldogs or Dogo Argentinos, the premier catch dogs of the world.

But like Potzi used to say on "Happy Days", "I still got it! I still got it!"

The Boxer still has it!  :rave:
