10 Dog Breeds at Highest Risk for Heatstroke

#7 – Boxer

Another high-energy, short-nosed breed, the boxer’s problem is not usually being out-of-shape, but just not knowing when to take a break. They may be more likely to not drink enough water, because it would mean stopping the play to do it. As they get older, however, Boxers do tend to put on pounds, so make sure your senior dog is staying trim.
