She's a 4 year old brindle boxer and so calm, precious, calm, loving, calm... Did I mention calm? As a mom of 5 let's just say I don't need more craziness so I was pleasantly surprised how peaceful and calm this dog is. She just follows us around and lays at our feet. She doesn't jump up, she's doesn't beg for food. She is polite and well mannered and essentially the perfect dog for a family with 5 kids. We love her!
