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 Puppy Available in South Carolina

My main computer is being repaired--sorry for the lack of updates!  Luau left for her new home in North Carolina on Sunday morning. They are a wonderful family, and she now has 2 other boxers to play with at home. Now that Waikiki is all by herself, she is getting some extra special attention from both us and our other dogs. She is lonely, but she loves playing with mom Eve and half-sister, Latte.

If you are interested in Waikiki, please contact us! She is now 13 weeks old and reminds us of her mom, Eve, who is very sweet, but a little timid when you first meet her. I'm sure she will be the perfect (big) lapdog!

Waikiki: White Female AVAILABLE!

It may look like they are bullying her, but they are just playing

She has a typical response to those senior to her--submission

Our daughter with Luau, now known as Liliko'i (Hawaiian name for the passion fruit flower),
or Lili for short.
