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.

Boxer Puppies are 2 Weeks Old!

As anticipated, all the puppies opened their eyes (at least most of the way) this week. Now that they can look me in the eyes, they seem to have their own personalities. Cute? Definitely. Next week, watch for them to move around more now that they can see! We have a male and female (fawn/brindle), and three white/white check puppies available to go to loving homes. Here are their 2 week pictures.

Aloha: White Check Female

Aloha is a special little one, who is sure to steal anyone's heart. She has a cleft lip, which will require surgery to repair it. She is expected to live a very normal boxer life.
Please contact us for more information about her, including a reduced price.
Kahuna: Dark Fawn Male
Kilauea: Flashy Brindle Male
Diamond Head: Fawn Male
Kailua: Brindle Female

Luau: White Check Female
Waikiki: White Female
