Best hunting dog, any of the labs. Best all around dog the boxer, they will never back down and are faithful to the extreme and are great arounds kids I have had 4 all of them great dogs. Here is a picture of rocko our big boy. Grandpa was getting to close to my youngest with that evil looking camera so rocko felt she needed defending. She is walking now and wherever she goes so does rocko. My oldest plays in the front yard and always rocko watches her from the shady side of the house. This is a great dog if you have kids, but you have to have a yard he is a house dog but loves the outside also.
