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.

White Boxer Puppies are Available in South Carolina

Three sisters, waiting for someone to come and take them home.

Now that the rest of the family left with their new families over the weekend, Aloha, Waikiki, and Lei  have their house all to themselves. We often hear them having a great time running around, barking at each other, and playing with their toys. At 9 weeks old, they are really getting big!

Aloha
Aloha was born with a cleft lip. while some breeders may have chosen to put her down at birth, because she wasn't quite normal, we didn't have the heart. Our vet recommends repairing the lip when she is about 4-6 months old. Because of this, she has a reduced price. She is quite the fun little girl with lots of spunk. She is the smallest of these three females. 
Luau
Luau is a very sweet and gentle girl. Her brindle ears are very unique.  She is a medium sized puppy.
Waikiki
Waikiki is very playful and is the largest of the girls. She is all white, like the white, sandy beaches of Waikiki!
