The boxer is indeed well known for his comical expressions and his really crazy antics. Initially bred in Germany the boxer is a relative newcomer to our shores and only arrived in the UK in 1930s. Since that time, his gentle but exuberant nature has led to him becoming one of the most loved family breeds in the UK and indeed worldwide. He is full of energy and fun; he's loving, loyal and so very, very gentle with any little crazy human creatures left in his charge. On this quality coaster Leslie has captured the boxer in a startling lifelike pose, as he quivers in anticipation. Is it a ball he is after...a walk... a tit bit... or simply just a moment of your attention? It doesn't matter as the effect is electric.
