Boxers make great ranch dogs!

Believe it or not a Boxer does make a good ranch dog! Here at the Horseshoe Ranch we have a couple of typical cow dogs "Dally and Lacy" that live 24/7 at the ranch and we have Boxers "Yohann" and our newest little member "Abagail" at the house. The boxers come with us to do chores during the day and work very well at the ranch. They can even help push cattle! They are really good with our daily customers with their wiggle butz greetings. The only thing I have found that is a little hard on the Boxer at the ranch is the cold weather. As December approaches, we are finally seeing some cold Oklahoma winter weather. Both our Boxers hate the cold and don't want any part of helping with chores on frosty days! Boxers don't mind wearing a winter parka but even with the help of a coat, they don't want any part of the frigid air. So I guess they are fair weather ranch dogs! Leaving the daily winter chores to the real cow dogs, while they lay by the fire, eating home baked cookies.
