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.

A New Litter for 2016!

It seems like our girls like to come in heat while we are in the middle of unpacking moving boxes.  This time, they both came in at the same time!  We have decided to only breed Eve this time around.  She had a rendezvous this week with Telstar's Strike Up the Band, commonly known as Sam.  Sam is a beautiful, 15 month-old, fawn male who shares the same father as Eve, Bandit.  We are anticipating successful breeding, with puppies arriving the week of January 24, 2016.  Puppies will be able to go to their new homes when they are 8 weeks old.  Both Eve and Sam have clear Holter tests prior to breeding.  We expect fawn, brindle, and perhaps white puppies.

I have posted the pedigree for this litter below (scroll all the way down).  If you need more information, or are interested in a puppy, please contact us soon by emailing us at bishopsboxers@gmail.com, or calling 619-207-8224.

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