Question Boxers and bully breeds?

I was wondering are boxers considered a bully breed? You see, a Petsmart opened in my area that has the Pethotel with doggie day camp. Their brochures say that they don't allow any bully breeds. I was under the impression that a breed with "bull" in it is of course a bully breed. I did some searching and there is conflicting info on whether or not a Boxer is part of that list. What do you guys think?

copied this off of Petsmart's website...their definition of bully breeds....looks like they do not consider Boxers as a bully breed for boarding purposes...

"†Dogs in the "bully breed" classification (e.g. American Pit Bull Terriers, Miniature Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, American Bull Dogs, Bull Terriers or mixed breeds that have the appearance or characteristics of one of these breeds). For the safety of all animals and associates, and at the discretion of PetSmart, some pets may not be permitted."

I used to work at one. They just don't want pitbulls or anything that is mixed and looks like one. Boxers are fine.

You could most likely find a better day camp thought to be honest.

Boxers are considered a "bully breed"....however normally when people say this they mean pitbulls.

I personally would look for another place that doesn't have breed discrimination, but thats just me.

Bully breeds come from the term bull biter. Dogs that were used to bite and hold bulls ie bull baiting. The boxer was one of these dogs the German version ie, Bullenbeisser or short Boxl. The boxer is the product of breeding of the Bullenbeisser and old time english bulldogs used for bull baiting. So yes the boxer is a bully breed.
