Standing-O has owned and bred nationally recognized GCH and Ch. Boxers for over 20 years. We are members of , Our breeding program adheres to the American Boxer Club, in which we are members. Our puppies are raised in a home environment where they are nurtured and socialized before they join their new family. Occasionally show potential and companion boxer puppies are available.
I cannot remember a time when I was not in the company of dogs. As a child my Indiana home was filled with sporting dogs. Since our dogs were hunting companions for my father, I would ask neighbors if they owned any AKC registered dogs and if they would allow me to show them at local dog shows. A few agreed and my Mom would drive me along with various breeds to regional dog shows. While in college I owned two Standard Poodles who were my young daughters play partners while David and I worked on our graduate degrees. Once we moved to New England, I was persuaded by my two daughters, Nita and Dylanie, to add a Boxer to our family. We rescued a Boxer puppy and she joined the resident Springer and Chesapeake Bay Retriever. Before Sadie turned two years old I was on a mission to begin showing dogs again; however, this time with one of my own and with a Boxer.
In 1995, I came home with my first show Boxer puppy, Bogie (Ch. Shadows Nairobi, SOM, LOM) and a few months later added Bacall (Raklyns Raindrop, DOM). Bogie and Bacall produced 5 champion get and cemented the foundation of Standing-O Boxers.
