Boxer dogs are pretty gentle dogs and most times the Boxer may bark at or growl at the intruder and protect you from the intruder.

However boxers don't usually attack someone unless they really feel the need too and most times the boxer won't attack the intruder by may bite them.

That is unless the intruder has a gun and shoots the boxer which has happened to dogs before.

Even dogs that seem very good at being guard dogs cannot protect you if the intruder shoots the dog first before entering.
