Different breeds of dog have unique personality traits. For instance, our family dog is an Australian Shepherd .
He defnitely exhibits the traits discussed in this article, but the things that make him really special are his very own quirks. He's lovable and goofy. He loves nothing better than playing games with our kids. In fact, his favorite game is a chasing game that starts in our enclosed pool area. The kids go out one door, and he starts this high-pitched yip, runs around the pool once and out the door on the other side of the screen to chase them around the house. It's like he KNOWS they are only human and need the head start! LOL. He also hates to be ignored and will "talk" to you with little growly noises if you're working at the computer (which I do A LOT) or watching TV, etc.
Does your dog fit his/her breed traits? What quirks make your pup special?
We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your boxer. I know you must be so sad and confused about what happened.
It would be impossible for our vets here to tell you what may have caused her death since they don't know your pup's medical history.
If you haven't already, please talk to your vet. He or she may want to do an autopsy to determine cause of death. If you have other animals in the home this could be a good idea just in case it was something she ingested or a disease that could be transimitted.
We are thinking of you. Let us know what you find out.
