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.

Puppy Cam 3/4/16

After a good night's sleep, the puppies are ready to go in the morning.  They are not used to all the sounds they might hear in your home.  Today, we used the cell phone for a little training. For the record, they were more scared of the iPhone sounds than Android (they all ran to the back of their box with the iPhone ringtones)!  So, remember when you bring them home, it will take them some time to get used to all the sounds around your home.

It was her first time holding a puppy on her lap. By her looks, she was pretty excited!

Flynn is a fawn male with nice white markings. He is available to go to a loving home in 2 weeks!  He reminds us a lot of his mom, Eve. Very patient, and a sweet personality. He'll make a perfect lap dog!
