I have both a lab and a boxer. Let me tell you, I love both of my dogs to death, but I will never again (unless fate brings one to me) get another lab. Forget apples and oranges, My lab and boxer are like 2 different species! The lab is extremely hyper, toy obsessed, sometimes aggressive around other dogs, and has no interest in cuddling or even being pet. The boxer on the other hand is 60 lbs of love and devotion. He wiggles his bum so hard when we get home from work that you can't help but laugh at him and love the fact that he is so happy to see you. He is gentle and loves to be pet and cuddled. After having both, I'm definitlely going to stick with Boxers from now on. Both can be great pets, but there is just something incredibly special about a Boxer.
