Quote from Frau Stockmann's book "My Life with Boxers".."The Boxer, however, is a gentleman amongst dogs with short coats. He not only wants the best food, he wants to be handled in a civilized manner too. He can easily be upset by his master & this is called being leader-sensitive. He cannot stand a hard hand or injustice. It is true he is pig-headed and every one has a personality of its own. His real job is to be a house & family dog and to be a friend to the children." PIG-HEADED? Indeed.
