ya know i know thats what makes them unique but i love the way boxers use their hands. tyson will paw at us, move his arms like a human, or come and touch you with his paw. it melts my heart every time. It is the cutest characteristic of boxers by far!!!
i agree...they almost show their love like humans the way they use their hands!! Chance uses his way more then Layla but she is starting to use hers more now that she is getting bigger and older. Chance swats the butterflies with his hands...i love that!!! He smacked hubby a good one last night. And every night before bed he gives me kisses and he puts one hand on each side of my face and kisses me...he is such a sweetie!!!
Buck used to always have to have at least one paw touching me when he laid down by me, I always loved that...When I first got Samson, he used to(still does actually) lift one paw and we actually thought he was trying to shake, but nooooo, that's his way of asking you to pet him. Angel is a bit more direct, she just lets those paws fly, I've been clocked a few times by her, she's definely a more "touchy feely" boxer..Then when the 2 of them are playing, it's a riot, Angel gets up on her back legs and yup, she's boxing allright!
My dog did the same thing. When he would want attention he would come over and put his paw on my arm and I would pet and scratch his ears. I would stop and then he would bat at my hand with his paw cause he did not want me to stop. I did not realize this was a trait with boxers I just thought it was my dog.
