About Bishop's Boxers

Welcome to our blog!

We have been a Boxer-loving family since 1987. Our love for the breed began with our first boxer, Chesty. Purchased from a California pet store, Chesty was extremely intelligent and trained closely with military police dogs, becoming highly skilled in search and rescue.

After losing Chesty to cancer and knowing we didn't want to experience life without Boxers, we purchased a striking 8-month-old fawn male Boxer from Crossroad Boxers in California. We named him Bishop. Little did we realize that he would be the beginning of our kennel, Bishop's Boxers.

Bishop participated in many dog shows while we had time in graduate school, but then came four children and 16 years of 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 kept a puppy, Lady, from the litter in February of 2005. Lady produced two wonderful litters of puppies with Telstar Boxers. We continued our breeding program with Telstar Boxers and Eve, Lady’s daughter, until we retired from the military in 2016.

As we transitioned back into civilian life, we paused our breeding program for nearly five years and are pleased to introduce our two new Telstar females, Callie and Prancer. Our goal at Bishop’s Boxers is to be dedicated to breeding and raising healthy, beautiful dogs with affectionate temperaments and sound structure in accordance with the AKC Boxer breed standard. The health and well-being of all our animals from birth until they leave with their forever family--and beyond--is critical to us. We utilize current recommended health tests before breeding to provide our puppies the best opportunity for a long, healthy life.

Our puppies are raised by our family with children and other dogs. They play an active and very important role in caring for, preparing, and socializing the puppies for their future families. As a result, the puppies leave our home with a clear advantage in adapting and transitioning to their new families.

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.

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