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 8 Weeks Old and Going Home!

These past eight weeks have gone so fast. It's hard to believe that they were once small enough to fit in the palm of my hand, and now they are bouncy, bubbly puppies around 10 pounds.  Here they are, now 8 weeks old and ready to go to their new homes. We have 4 females available to go to loving homes. Please contact us for more information on these cute little girls!

Aloha : White Check Female: AVAILABLE TO GO TO A LOVING HOME
Aloha looks a little different because she has a cleft lip. Many breeders might opt to put her down at birth,
but we didn't have the heart. Our vet recommends surgery when she is 4-6 months old to close it up. So even though she might not look quite normal, her big personality makes up for it!
Contact us for more information, including a reduced price.
