About Bishop's Boxers

Welcome to our blog! If you are a computer, be sure to turn up your speaker volume so you can enjoy Boxertunes while you browse our site.

We are a boxer-loving family that recently retired from military life and relocated to the Chicago suburbs. Our love for the breed began back in 1987 with our first boxer in Minnesota. Although he wasn't the most beautiful boxer, Chesty became extremely well-trained. Unfortunately, in 1998, he got cancer and we had to put him down when he was nearly 11.

Knowing that we didn't want to experience life without Boxers, we had a new puppy waiting to be shipped from Crossroad Boxers in California to Minneapolis, Minnesota. We gave this striking 8-month old fawn male the name of Bishop. Little did we realize that he would be the beginning of our own kennel, Bishop's Boxers.

Bishop participated in many dog shows while we had time in graduate school, but then came children and active duty military life. Having the desire to have a puppy from Bishop and the determination to uphold and improve the standard of the boxer breed, we bred Bishop and got our first female, Lady, in February of 2005. Lady produced two wonderful litters of puppies with Telstar's Dixieland Band (Bandit). Telstar Boxers continue to be a large part of our pedigrees. We lost Lady in August 2015 to Cushing's disease. It never gets any easier.

We kept one female puppy from Lady's first litter, Eve. And from one of Eve's litters, we kept Latte, a classic fawn female. We update our blog regularly, so be sure to check back here or on our Facebook page for the most current information.

Eve Update

Eve is doing well and her belly is definitely starting to show signs of pregnancy.  In a few weeks when we take an x-ray, we'll have a better idea of how many puppies she is expecting.

Placing our puppies in the best homes is critical to us.  Therefore, we ask all potential owners to complete a questionnaire about their families and homes.  Our waiting list is growing quickly, so if you would like to be considered for puppy placement, please contact us soon so we can email it to you.

Our first boxer Chesty. He wasn't the most beautiful boxer, but certainly well-loved!
