The Half Breed


They call me a Boxer,
But I'm a Half-Breed.
Part Boxer of course,
and part people indeed.

All who own me know it's true.
We're so close to being people,
we're like part of you.
"He's one of the family,"
you've heard people say.
"Don't know how we'll manage when he passes away."

But they'll get another Boxer,
a purebred at first.
Not the most well-behaved puppy,
but far from the worst.

Then the change will take place,
the same as before.
They'll end up with the same human HALF-BREED once more!

History Quicks

The Westminster Kennel Club dog show is the second oldest continuously held sporting event in the U.S., second only to the Kentucky Derby (held one year earlier in 1876). The Boxer first entered Westminster in 1914 in the Non-Sporting Group, before being moved to the Working Group in 1936. The Boxer holds the record for Most Group Wins (26), Most Consecutive Group Wins (5 - 1954-1958, 2009-2013), Most Group Placements (58), Most Consecutive Group Placements (19 - 1940-1958) and Current Streak of Group Placements (6 - 2009-2014). The latest (2020) Westminster KC Group Winning Boxer is Wilma - GCHP2 Cinnabon's Bedrock Bombshell for the second year in a row.
