I don't know how you compare these breeds, but I . If you use a reputable breeder, as in addition to breeding for conformaty to a breed standard, are also breeding for temperment. Personally I would stay clear of boxers; every one I have seen is crazy (probably since they are so high energy and your average person working a fulltime job could hardly meet their daily exercise requirements). But is it hard to realise what there temperament is when they are terriers?

I think it depends on the owner.

Naturally wonderful--it's the god awful owners that are the problem.

Depends on a) the dog b)the owner and c) the environment. Just like many things on the Earth, everything depends on everything.

My pit bull is a pussy cat. She does not have a mean bone in her body. She lives with 3 cats, a chihuahua, and 2 humans. The little dog and youngest cat run her life. The cat walks on her, sleeps on her. She is scared of thunder and spiders!

It depends very much on how owner has been raising the dog. There is plenty of researches showing that pit bulls (also boxers) are not usually more dangerous if are raised well. One interesting web page about pitbulls.

It definitely depends on the dog as well as the owner and environment they are brought up in.

It depends very much on the owner and the dog. One of the problems with some breeds is that they cause more damage when they do attack. The snappiest dogs I have come across are toy dogs, but they don't cause the same damage as one that has strong jaws and is bred not to let go.
