If the bulldog doesn’t strike your fancy, the boxer is another sturdy dog that can maintain its composure around kids. While boxers were originally bred as medium-size guard dogs, you’ll find them as an extra member of the family in many homes today. Along with its stout size, the boxer is known for its high energy — this playful pup needs lots of exercise and may keep your kids occupied for hours.
True to form, the boxer is described by the American Kennel Club as fun-loving, bright and active, making it the 10th-most popular dog breed of the AKC.
